I kept nudging Cathy throughout with comments like "It's Bumblebee, it's Bumblebee!" or "It's Optimus Prime!" And she kept telling me to shut up and stop being such a saddo. At the end I turned to Cathy and said: "I think this just might be my new favourite film!" She said: "Seriously?" Perhaps it's more of a boy thing.
In case you loved Transformers as a kid and are afraid the big screen version is going to stuff things up, don't worry. Everything you could want is in there, including in-jokes ("They must be Japanese!"), amazing special effects, humour, decent acting (despite slightly corny scripting), heroism, explosions, screeching tyres, and good triumphing over evil.
Or to put it another way: it's full of cool cars and then they become robots. What more could you want?
Plus they've left the ending open for a sequel. On the basis of the first one, I'm already excited at the prospect of seeing more.
Go and see it. Seriously - get thee to a cinema!
