Transformers: Not More than Meets the Eye

What song should you put on the car radio as you drive by that pretty girl? What tune should play as you drive that fine young lady home? The answer is Before It’s Too Late, by the Goo Goo Dolls (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp__g0bahfQ). And Shia Labeouf doesn’t even have to figure it out for himself; his car chooses the song for him as he gives the gorgeous Megan Fox a ride home. The car plays wingman all the way, even stalling at a make-out point. Labeouf doesn’t know it yet, but his car is Bumblebee, a non-biological extra terrestrial life form, sent to earth to fight the evil Decepticons in the live action movie The Transformers.

Megan Fox—I cannot stress this enough—is the hottest actress you have never heard of. She is “makes me lust in my heart” stunning. Even without the amazing special effects of the transformer robots, her physical presence would make this film watchable. She fills the role of the token hot chick that, at first glance, appears to be a self-obsessed drama queen who dates jerks because she can’t help falling for tight abs and strong arms. She even says so. But, fear not, she is the token hot chick who is emotionally deeper than at first glance. Shia Labeouf realizes this, and tells her she is “more than meets the eye.”

Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and the rest of the Autobots, a race of autonomous robot life forms made famous in the cartoon series The Transformers, need Shia’s help to find the All Spark, a cube that can turn mechanical objects to life, and keep it away from Megatron and the evil Decepticons, or else earth will be destroyed just like Cybertron, the home planet of the Transformers. The stakes could not be higher, as we see in Optimus Prime’s and Megatron’s mano a mano (roboto a roboto?) battle. “Humans don’t deserve to live,” yells Megatron. “They deserve to choose for themselves,” retorts Optimus Prime. The fate of humanity—and bad dialogue—is at stake, as the Autobots and Decepticons continue the war of Cyberton on earth in this cinematic masterpiece.
