We were sent a review disc of this up and coming release. My boys are 3 and 5 and not entirely sold on Transformers yet, but I thought it would be nice to have a new film for them to try whilst we were on holiday. Well they went and surprised me and absolutely loved it. I think it’s actually made them more interested in their Weaponizer Optimus Prime toy we had as part of our toyologist box 1.
Seeing the characters on screen has definitely impressed them, they loved seeing them transform from a vehicle into robot mode. Am sure they will go back to their toy with more enthusiasm now that they know what a true epic hero Optimus Prime is.
The DVD is broken down into five manageable episodes, but the boys were enjoying it so much they were begging to watch it in one sitting. But after a couple of episodes I did insist they went to bed to resume the rest another day. Although I was quite into the plot myself at that point and was tempted to keep watching whilst they slept!!! But it is more fun watching it with my boys.
It has a PG rating, my two boys aged 3 and 5 seemed okay with it, but obviously I would recommend sitting with your children just in case (plus you might find yourself getting into it too!). The autobots are a mixed bunch but they show lots of great characteristics and humour and with plenty of action scenes I have no doubt Transformer fans would love this. You are intrigued seeing the three human kids endearing themselves to the robots as they try and protect them from harm. Cue lots of booing over the antics of the Decepticons.
This DVD is available from all major retailers from October 22nd with an RRP of £10.99.
