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.
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.
DVD is available from all major retailers from October 22nd with an
RRP of £10.99.
