Atom User Reviews for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Early Access
An excellent escape from the day’s heat.
I was surprised how good it was, despite the critics not so good reviews
held my pee for two hours, because I did not want to miss anything in the movie ☺️
Handful of really cool actions sequences and fun but not enough for a great ride, like the car stunt scenes other than that pretty shallow repetitive recycled stories
In the face of creative genocide (if that’s not too harsh a term for it), we should neither be making nor seeing movies like Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
Every shot is sluiced in flat grey light – the action scenes look like gravel in a food processor – while the dialogue is all botched quips and clichés (“Did somebody order backup?” one Transformer smarms while cocking a rocket launcher), and the human characters timidly written nobodies.
It’s an easier-to-follow variation on the template than most of its predecessors, but still one dependent on long-winded exposition dumps. And the character-based material here lacks Bumblebee’s sweetness, coming off as cloyingly manipulative instead.
