More good stuff from Nick at Nite
Indeed, there is more than meets the eye. This is a true summer blockbuster. It has action, adventure, mayhem, a PG love interest, funny sidekicks and character actors, explosions, and the good guys winning. Doing the admittedly difficult, coming up with a good story for a feature-length movie about an 1980s toy and a serialized cartoon, is very impressive. Basically, bad robots must be defeated by good robots. Good robots are protecting boy who has the key to the survival of our planet and species. Sound like it might jump the shark. It does. Several times. That is what makes it so great. I give this movie an “A.” See it twice, then buy the DVD. Wow.
