THE PLOT THUS FAR
The Conclusion Of The Unicron Trilogy!
Unicron has been defeated, but his destruction has created a black hole, which is threatening the Autobots’ home world of Cybertron. It’s up to Optimus Prime, his team of heroic Autobots and their new human friends (Coby, Lori and Bud) to secure the four mystical Cyber Planet Keys, in order to destroy the black hole. Unfortunately, Megatron and the Decepticons are always lurking. And if the Cyber Planet Keys fall into their hands, it could mean the end of life as we know it. The race is on!
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Transformers Cybertron” opens following the destruction of Unicron. The problem is that a blackhole has been created too close to the Autobot home of Cybertron. Optimus Prime has to play Robotic Christ again and sacrifice most of himself to save the day. There’s also new humans for Shia LeBeouf to play in a future installment. But, I’m not sure if Michael Bay is ever going to work with him again. Megan Fox had an excuse, she had tits.
This was one of the lesser series. While I get that it dropped in that dead zone before the release of the first movie, I was pretty sure that this series had its fans. I’ve yet to find any Transformers fans that will really go out of their way to call the movie necessary. The only thing that people seemed to share was their shock over how dark the story would go, while still trying to appeal to the humor of the original 1980s series. It created an interesting dichotomy that some might find to be a little schizo.
The DVD comes with no special features. But, the A/V Quality is on par with past Transformers Animation releases. The Dolby 2.0 Surround track is pretty supportive. The transfer is clean for standard definition. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to Transformers fans.
