The Death Of Techno

The Death Of Techno

Basing a movie series on a toy line is often a losing proposition.

It's easy to imagine director Michael Bay being pleased with the first Transformers movie because it contained images that captivated children and haunted their parents. What if the evil Volkswagen was actually a heroic robot and an ordinary cell phone turned out to be an evil alien? With the advent of AI, the last topic seemed even scarier than before.

If the first film reminded Bay and her crew of how much fun it was to play with toy robots, later films in the series remind me of what happens when we outgrow our toys. Almost everyone involved seemed to be running Hasbro and seemed pretty bored doing it.

Steven Caple Jr. (Creed 2) isn't too keen on this new assignment either, and the five (yes, that's right, five) writers mentioned haven't given him or us any new human or cyborg characters to to love or to love. to hate

As in previous films, the daytime battles between the Autobots and their adversaries are tough, fierce, and hard to follow. When one piece of metal performs better than another, it's hard to tell because nothing really dies. The character is so thin that emotional attachments creep in. It's like participating in a junkyard where cars can be recycled later.

The stock neither rises nor falls. It just stays at the same blistering speed.

Of course, a new breed of evil robots called Forerunners worship gods who want to eat the universe, just like Pacman did. Their leader, Scourge (Peter Dinklage), tries to find the key that will help him in this task.

The second group of cyborgs called the Maximals have their key parts hidden here on Earth, which even from a human's perspective seems completely stupid.

Autobot leader Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen, who has voiced the role for decades) is eager to help banish Pre-Con and hopes the key will help his tribe return to their home planet. Somehow a struggling veteran (Anthony Ramos, "Hamilton") and an art critic (Dominic Fishback, "Judas and the Black Messiah") fit the story, but both seem too qualified to play second fiddle toys to play.

On the other hand, the roles of well-known artists such as Dinklage, Michelle Yeoh and Ron Perlman seem counterproductive when their voices are drowned out by electronic means. Why vote for an Oscar winner like Yes if you can't hear the words or see the face? It was a scary trend in previous films and now looks even funnier.

It also prevents the artist from giving the robot a new personality. It used to be fun to guess what quotes might come out of Bumblebee's speakers. Now preview top movies, reminding viewers that they can now watch top movies.

Hasbro even had the audacity to add a second line of toys at the end of this story, not realizing that their business proposition had fallen through. It's easy to imagine that watching a 6-year-old play with toys would be more fun. They don't yet know the cliches and will approach the process with more complacency than adults who are doing well.
