"Optimus Prime: At the end of this day... one shall stand, one shall fall"

I guess this review is a bit late. There is tons of review that you can read elsewhere on the internet. So what makes mine different from the rest ? My review is based on myself as a general audience rather than an ultra-leet-fanatic transformers fan or ultra-leet-fanatic movie critics. Well, maybe as an ultra-leet-fanatic gamer (am I ?). Before I start anything, I would like to address to all Megan Fox's fan, there is a short video clip of Megan's Fox scene from the movie below just after the review. Its the part where she is checking Bumblebee's Engine. Rejoice !

"Sam 'Spike' Witwicky: Watch those curves...."

As I mentioned before, I watched Transformers last week at Midvalley Megamall with my frens (Dindetron, OptimusMth, ShujiScream, Donumblebee). Because of our attitude (lol !), we didn't book the tickets but we depend on our luck to get it by goin to the cinema a tad early and buy it there. As a result, we managed to get 5 tickets. Arent we lucky ? Well, not quite lucky because the seats are exactly infront of the screen and for that, Donumblebee queued for about 30-45 minutes. Its lucky to have a nice fren like that who are willing to sacrifice for others (just like Bumblebee in the movie).

"Optimus Prime: Need a light ?"

So how was it ? From my point of view, this is the greatest movie I've watched so far. Why ? Because it contains all the elements a good movie should have for example, eye-catching graphic, comedy/humour, love, action, suspense, and thrill plus the most important part, the robots. Cmon, who expect that the Autobots also have some sense of humour and make themself look like clowns (hint: the scene where they need to hide themself from Sam's Parent). Also, the voice of Optimus Prime is done by the same guy who did it for the cartoon. How cool is that ? Eventhough he is old, he still got that cool macho tone with him. Through-out the movie, I was glued to my seat because the flow of the movie was very organize heck once the movie end, I saw a few people rush out of the cinema to the toilet. I bet they hold their 'business' first until the movie finish.

"Bumblebee: I'm the fastest !"

Some of the reviews I read on teh net tend to criticize teh movie. I guess they must be in the ultra-leet-fanatic transformers fan category. They are dissapointed because they found that Michael Bay concetrated more on teh 'disgusting humans' rather than teh robots. Well who dont want to when you have the super-ultra-babe, Megan Fox, as the heroine. I can understand their attachment to Transformers but if you look it in a different way, like what I did, I found that teh movie overall managed to combine every elements it have. For me, they did quite a good job introducing about teh robots, teh mission, and also teh humans. Doesnt mean teh movie sux just because they dont concetrate more on teh robots, get what I mean ? I'm sure if they just concetrate about the robots (the fighting scene, introduction of their planets, bla bla bla) then it will be just the same with the cartoon. Michael Bay did a goob job on making it a bit different with a twist. This xplains why it is a box office movie not because of the franchise but because it appeals to almost all type of movie-goers.

"Sam 'Spike' Witwicky: What happen to my car ?"

The movie also include some easter eggs (on purpose or mistake) for the viewers to discover by themself. I won't list them all here but Only a few that I found interesting.

1) When Sam gets his pants ripped off by Frenzy, his pants are left somewhere on the ground. But when he gets into Bumblebee, his pants are back on.

2) As Ron drives Sam past the Porsche dealership, the reflection of the camera car filming them is briefly visible on the dealership's windows.

3) Barricade is destroyed by Bumble Bee. But later in the movie, when Megatron contacts the Decepticons, Barricade shows up again on the road, but he is no longer included in the fight scenes between the Autobots and Decepticons.

"Sergeant Lennox: Stay cool guys !"


"Sergeant Epps: Err dude, look behind ..."

Another part that is interesting about the movie is the use of quotes that will forever stuck inside your brain. Some of it are

1) Bobby Bolivia: A driver don't pick the cars. Mmm-mm. Cars pick the driver.

2) Sam 'Spike' Witwicky: It's a robot. You know, like a super advanced robot. It's probably Japanese.

3) Jazz: You want a piece of me Megatron?
Megatron: No, I want two!
(after that, Megatron rips Jazz in half, poor guy errr robot)

4) Sam 'Spike' Witwicky: I bought a car. Turn out to be an alien robot... who knew?


Overall, the movie is at its best and trust me, you won't be dissapointed with it (to those who haven't watch the movie). The acting and the cgi was truely marvellous and the robots were simply cool. What more do you want from a movie huh ? If you want to know more about the movie, you can go to the IMDb website.

After wards I later restored from a backup and had contacts and everything back except my applications. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how i can recover my applications. P.S : Thanks for the help!
