    I really loved the last act, it was incredibly fun and had Transformers doing Transformers things and it still followed the main cast. I didn't have any problems with it.

    • aeztral
      aeztral 3 months ago +32

      Yep same. It generally was so refreshing having such a small human cast (literally two characters). It actually felt like a TRANSFORMERS movie even if it could have been like 25min longer to give some more quiet moments with characterization to the Maximals.

    It's disappointing that Rhinox, one of my old favourites, doesn't get much dialogue in this. But hey, as long as they didn't turn him into a baddie then at least the movie's doing better with him than Beast Machines did 😅

      the scene in Transformers 3 where John malkovitch fired that one girl for having a red cup in the yellow floor instead of a yellow cup on the yellow floor during Sam’s interview is more engaging and entertaining than cybertron scene. And this coming from a tf fan since 2007
      Post Michael bay tf movies just feel so empty. I’d rather have shitty Michael bay-isms that give the movie a personality rather than this MCU-stained cookie cutter filmmaking

  • ArnyX
    ArnyX 3 months ago +73

    I partly understand Prime's hostile to humans, he sent Bee to establish a base and protect the planet along with its inhabitants. Since he is a scout, there is a high chance he told Optimus or in this case showed his recording that humans even if there are good ones, there are some that humans can be easily manipulated to work with the Decepticons, especially if those humans have position in the government... He also saw that Bee was captured, tortured and killed by the Decepticons that worked with humans and this made Prime angry, and ordered all the autobots to stay hidden until further notice.

    • Code Pizza
      Code Pizza 3 months ago

      Nah. Thing is there was no protection needed if they never came to earth in the first place and brought the war with them. Prime was just conveniently out of character because the script sucks

    • ToukenDanshiWarrior

    • Code Pizza
      Code Pizza 2 months ago

      @ToukenDanshiWarrior nah Prime wouldn't be like that in the first place. Instead Primal's character should be like that since he's a more aggressive and emotional. But plot demanded them to be out of character

    I actually really liked the movie. Was very nostalgic for the mid 90s. Great action scenes. Good comedy. Felt like they talked a little too much in the middle of fighting, but I really liked the movie.

    I just watched it and I really enjoyed it. A little cheesy at some parts. But for the most part it felt like I was engaged throughout the movie. There were parts that had some great payoffs. Even the far fetched-ness and predictable elements of the actual story progression were done with enough taste to make the story fresh and fun still.

    Saw Rise Of The Beasts yesterday at the 9:20pm showing and it was amazing! The ending scene was insane to say the least. Unicron was very threatening in this movie(As he should be), hope we can see more of him in the future. The human characters were likeable just like the human characters in Bumblebee(2018). The audience in the theater was going crazy for the badass scenes and especially the ending to. I'd honestly love to see a Dinobots film in the future.

    I feared due to the amount of transformers in the movie, that the maximals wouldn’t have too much character development which I feel is needed now in these movies. And hearing rhinox hasn’t been written as a buff tech guy makes me say “meh” still can’t wait to see it of course but man the maximals have so much more to bring to the table story wise and character wise

    • WigantX
      WigantX 3 months ago +1

      I'm pretty sure most people that are not familiar with Beast Wars, would enjoy the movie. I'm a huge fan of Beast Wars and it was a bit underwhelming how the maximal were used in this movie. If you have seen the trailers, that's pretty much what you get from them.
      Spoilers ahead: Airazor doesn't even have a robot mode (but I gotta say that her eagle/hawk? design was dope). Rhinox speaks not a single word. Cheetor goes "Hi" and that's it. Dinobot and Rattrap were completely absent (did they die offscreen?), so they lost the opportunity to have Rattrap saying "hi, grandma" to Arcee. I dare to say that If you remove the maximals from the story, it would have worked anyways

    • Joey Polisena

      It seemed like the Maximal planet at the beginning of ROTB was made to evoke the ending of Beast Machines. The Maximals in ROTB were also more organic than their BW versions with their hair and Airrazor's wounds looking more like blood.

  • Jackson Fuller
    Jackson Fuller 3 months ago +12

    I really want the robot only movie one day. I hope they make a movie about the wars back story and they don’t try to cram it into one movie but at least two so we can get some real character time.
    Also really want them to change up the plot to being a location based objective or a milestone objective. Like defending the capitol. Just something different that doesn’t involve an object as the goal. Like I’m cool with them getting cool objects but it shouldn’t be what the plot rest on. I want Megatron to actually have a character so bad. With actual ideology and a relationship with Optimus that isn’t just we must kill each other. Lol

    Great vid, Jeremy. I wish we could've gotten more of the Maximals' journey when they landed on Earth and how they interacted with the natives in Peru through all the years of hiding. Overall, it was still an enjoyable movie.

  • Someshwar Rao
    Someshwar Rao 3 months ago +507

    The thing that made Bumblebee work was the relatively small scale of the story. As much as I am looking forward to this one, I hope we get maybe a spin off or two where they focus more on those standalone stories. It also gives audiences someone to root for when the big team ups happen.

    • Wendell Stephens

      Agreed. I know most people are tired of cinematic universities (and a little tired of the actual MCU), but this franchise could actually use some of that.

    • TVJ Films
      TVJ Films 3 months ago +1

      they didn’t make enough money from bumblebee, that’s why we haven’t heard of any new stand alone stories. That’s what they were wanting to do. But maybe 10 years from now they might revisit it.

    • Designated Productions
      Designated Productions 3 months ago +19

      ​@TVJ Films Bumblebee did actually make a profit with a smaller budget, standalone films can definitely work with the wide range of characters in the Transformers Universe, maybe the animated film next year could kick-start that new approach to Transformers media.

    I felt like the movie gave the transformers actual personality that the Michael Bay movies lacked. Transformers is a massive childhood staple for me so I loved every minute of it. My only complaint was the big reveal they put in the very end of the movie. Kind of dumb to me, but I guess we’ll see where this goes.

  • Raul Garcia

  • Harbinger Uprising

    Fair review. The first half I thought was very solid, with only a few lines that struck me as lacking. But the second half is where it was “fine enough”. I did enjoy the movie, and everything here is still so much better than the Michael bay movies, in my opinion. Yes, I want more from the Maximals but hopefully they show up for future movies as well. Great acting and voice acting. And I certainly appreciate the new art style with this and the bumblebee movie. FANTASTIC SOUNDTRACK.

  • tyr0n313
    tyr0n313 3 months ago +9

    THANK YOU for stating the obvious thing that these studios seem to always forget: the classic show didn’t need to focus on the human element so much to make us “relate.” A human element is fine, but they don’t need to be the focal point. We see the movie and care about it because of the Transformers characters…. Not the humans.

    This movie was so much Fun!!! I watched it in IMAX and it was beyond Epic!!! For 80s and 90s kids, there's a lot of nostalgia in this film. And it was great. Even the human Characters aren't beyond Annoying. And with that Easter egg at the end of the film blew my mind with possibilities of where the franchise can go💯💯 this film made me fall back In love with the franchise. It's a lot of Action filled Fun!!!

    I actually really like Shia LeBeouf as Sam Witwicky in Transformers 1. I thought it worked really well there. Wasn’t nearly as good in 2 and especially not in 3… but the hottie who was actually a ROBOT IN DISGUISE really gave that line a new meaning lmao.
    And I LOVE the line about, “Looking back on your life, don’t you want to say you had the courage to get in the car?”

    Great movie as a transformers movie. Typical humans get sucked into a dangerous mission and join with autobots to try and save the planet against deceptions. As for character development, emotions to their involvement and the culture this movie brought out being set in the 90s it was great. Action sequences were also very fun and entertaining, movie was as good or can be in the same category as Bumblebee and Transformers 1

  • Ben M
    Ben M 3 months ago +3

    This was a very entertaining movie, I’ll let you guys know up front that I know absolutely nothing about the Transformers franchise, I’ve seen all the live action movies but anything beyond that having to do with the characters/lore I have zero knowledge of, and thus far I’ve disliked all of the Michael Bay movies but found Bumblebee very enjoyable, and so I didn’t really know what to expect out of this one, and it was very fun, first off it’s great to see Optimus Prime again, he’s once again a very cool character and this time he’s a little different than he’s been in the other movies because he has this dislike for humans which I thought was an interesting take on his character, the action is really good, much like with Bumblebee it’s a very big upgrade from the terrible action of the Michael Bay movies, and the Maximals were badass, in particular Optimus Primal, whenever they were onscreen it was awesome, where the movie kinda falters is for one the human characters, I enjoyed Hailee Steinfeld’s character in Bumblebee but here the characters are pretty bland, granted the main guy I thought *had potential* to be an interesting character with the backstory he was given, he has a sick little brother that he’s trying to provide for but unfortunately they just didn’t do enough with that story thread, and the main female character felt like she was literally just there to spout exposition, that’s like all she does throughout the entire movie, also the movie carries over a problem that I also had with Bumblebee, which is that I feel like ever since they moved away from the Michael Bay movies the effects have gotten worse, in Bumblebee the Transformers looked surprisingly fake compared to how they did before, in this movie the effects are *a little* better but still don’t look that real if you ask me, also another thing they changed that I don’t like is the size of them, in this movie and Bumblebee the Transformers look a lot smaller than I feel like they should be, in these movies they look like they’re only about 15 feet tall which to me doesn’t feel right, I much prefer the giant, titan sized Transformers that the Michael Bay movies had, to me that felt a lot more appropriate, and lastly there’s a ending scene that I’m kinda split on, depending on if they’re serious about it or not gives me 2 different responses, if they’re actually being serious about it then I think it’s a monumental mistake, all I can say at that point is “Dear god, what the hell are you guys thinking?” But on the other hand if it’s a just a joke and it’s not actually tying into anything then I’ll be like “Hehe, alright that’s pretty funny” All in all I had fun with this movie, as of now I would say it’s my second favorite Transformers movie, I didn’t like it as much as Bumblebee but I liked it better than all the Michael Bay movies, the action is a lot of fun, it moves at a smooth brisk pace and while nothing great was a very enjoyable time. 7/10

    How about, since we are kinda on a roll with Bumblebee and ROTB being "not so bad", and much better than the trash we got from the MB series (besides the 1st original) maybe we should explore a little deeper into some of the characters before doing any massive big budget build or break the franchise ideas. Don't want to be cramping a ton of info into a 2hr show. Bait the fans with character development with what you have already introduced.

    Absolutely loved it especially the little human centric twist at the end... no spoilers here... it seems like more of a soft reboot so hopefully rethinking all the Bay movies.

      Its a full reboot!
      In TF5, it was revealed that Unicron was the earth the entire time. Now, we can see that is not the case.
      Also, bumblebee didn't fight the Nazis in the bumblebee movie.

    I didn't know what to expect from this one. It wase entertaining but what I like is that they kept it close to the 1986 cartoon movie. Spike, I mean Noah, got his Transformer gear, was awesome to see. But I was waiting for Hot Rod, I mean Mirage, to become some form of RODIMUS-PRIME. Anyone noticed the music when Unicron first appeared in the movie was almost similar to the cartoon movie.

    There is an arch in the comics about how one of the Autobots was stuck with a decepticon and they end up talking and realize theyre fighting just because of a symbol on their chest. Very relatable to life.

    The finale clash reminded me soooo much of the Endgame fight between the avengers and thanos’ army, lol
    That said, I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would. I’d call it one of the better ones alongside Bumblebee and the first movie. Mirage and Noah’s friendship is a highlight though.

    I agree with you about the movie spelling out everything they’re doing. On the other hand, it makes the plot easy to follow. I think this is a good movie for kids who like the transformers cartoons and toys. The 1994 NYC setting was really cool with lots of little nods to the period, like OJ Simpson on the security guard’s TV was pretty funny.

    So I saw an advanced screening of this last night. It was fun. I won't spoil anything. I'll let you decide if it's good or bad. Similar to Bumblebee it is a positive entry into the TF franchise. There is the nerd bomb drop at the end that I will be curious to see if they can nail it in the future. The biggest fail for me is not having Gary Chalk back as Primal to work with Cullen as Prime.

    Personally this movie should have been made to succeed a movie centered on the Maximal and Predacon war. This would have allowed for proper character introduction and development prior to encountering Optimus Prime and the Autobots. As a Beast wars fan I was sad they didn’t include a huge amount of necessary characters and in reality made the maximals an afterthought in the movie rather than the actual focus.

    I just got back from seeing it and can confidently say this is the best film in the franchise!! As good if not BETTER than bumblebee didn’t think I would say that but it is imo… my favorite bay film was dotm and the 07 film and this completely knocks it out of the park…. Great job Steven caple jr im very impressed!!! Solid 9.7/10 I honestly don’t understand the critic scores rn made my dad tear up bc he is a big g1 fan and the bay films lost him… but he said this felt like a true transformers movie and it took everything good from bumblebee and the bay franchise and IMPROVED UPON IT genuinely impressed with this movie the story was FANTASTIC!!!! Only slight criticism I have is the pacing towards the second half… but is easily forgotten due to the 3rd act. EVERY SINGLE JOKE landed even prime made a joke at some point haha overal the best movie so far!!!! I have a strong feeeling the audience score will be a definite 80% or higher… I know that is saying a lot but guys you have to trust me on this one when I say this f

    Rise of the Beasts is an easy 8 out of 10. The best of all the live action Transformers movies. The 1986 movie still holds top place for an animation movie. They finally figured out that the humans are co-stars within a robot battle movie/show, and not the other way around. Fans who understand Transformers, how this plot was written, and what was revealed at the end of the movie, can now see a future potential for the franchise.

  • 코렉트
    코렉트 3 months ago +349

    This movie felt like a better, more competently directed version of the previous Transformers movies. It has the same story beats as before, it's still fundamentally a journey to find a lost alien MacGuffin artifact. Although this time around it doesn't have annoying humans and the characters overall feel more developed. I still think Bumblebee is better, but this one's definitely a step in the right direction and I'm excited for the future especially with that 10/10 hype ending. They completely massacred Wheeljack's design though...

    1:06 it's my theory that these movies focus so much on "the human element" because the cost per minute to shoot a scene with people is quite less than the cost per minute to CGI a scene with huge robots. I'm sure the studio rides the accounting line of how much to spend on CG vs actors.

    I like that you're not overly negative or positive. You state what's good and what's bad. Critics rating the movie on Rotten Tomatoes aren't doing that.

    Big props to the transformers franchise for being able to make a transformers movie after we’ve gotten 7 movies over the span of 15 years. That somehow is fresh and feels like we are watching the first live action transformers movie to be made? Biggest gripe with this movie though is if you are going to absolutely stack the voice actors but still make this a human based movie, their was 2 lead human characters. The dude was alright, the girl was absolutely cringe. Just round up and give us some big name actors we can invest in.
