Transformers Prime had a pretty good ending with Deadlock, but I guess that the writers wanted to do a better ending so we've got this movie.
And with all the live action movies focusing on the humans this was pretty amazing to see.
There are no Humans in this one and paradoxically I wished there were because the humans from Prime are likeable unlike those from the live action series.
One more thing before we go into full on spoiler mode the cover is a LIE that fight never happens in the movie.
Also, if you want to see the movie and don't want spoilers all I have to say is that it's better than the live action ones and there's a actually an good plot(s) in it.
This also indicates that this takes place right after the events of Deadlock(click here already).
Meanwhile Back on Earth two old threats come back from beyond and combine.
I'm surprised that Megatron's body is still intact.Remember he fell from freaking orbit and the looks pretty okay except for that hole in the chest that Bumblebee made.
Meanwhile, back on Cybertron Bumblebee gets upgraded from Scout to Warrior by Optimus Prime. It's good to see that he gets an upgrade I mean, if you don't get a promotion for killing the enemy leader then your boss must hate you.
Then Optimus announces his quest for the movie's macguffin. Would joke more about this, but the reasoning that the hiding of the Allspark was pretty they were losing the war and the relic was too important to fall into Megatron's hands so hiding it was a good movie.
So far we have 2 plot thread, but that is not enough so comes number 3.
|You came to the wrong neighborhood bot|
While on patrol Smokescreen and Ultra Magnus meet 2 new Predacons:Skylynx&Darksteel.
And since Predacons don't play nice you can imagine what happens next. They transform into beast mode and fight.
Ultra Magnus gets hurt and Smokescreen saves by using his toy (the phase shifter).
Ultra Magnus is so hurt so bad that he is out of commission for the rest of the movie and Ratchet is back from Earth to help him.
They also decide not to interrupt Optimus's quest to save all of Cybertron in order to deal with 2 new beasts.
Apparently Optimus send the Allspark to a dangerous region of the Galaxy so it wouldn't be found by Megatron, but wouldn't that be 1st place to search?
This is a smart move on the Bee's part going to ask Predaking for help.
|Yes, it's a normal stick.|
Bee's speech is very good. I'm so sad that I can't show it to you, but trust me it's very good it clearly shows that this character was evolved and became wised unlike his live action counterpart.
Unfortunately he (Predaking) is still bitter for the destruction of his brethren on Earth, so he refuses Bee's offer.
Meanwhile, in plot threat 4 or 3 depends on how you count it, we see that Starcream and Shockwave are responsible for the new Predacons.
It's kinda strange seeing them on Cybertron because there were headed towards the zombie/vampire moon where Airachnid and Insections were teleported in a previous episode.
Meanwhile, Optimus finds the Allspark and it's out in the open.
Okay, I understand that it's a very dangerous area of space really leave it in the open like this? Really? How about putting some decoys around you said yourself that is an important relic that Megatron doesn't need to get so add some extra security man.
And things go from bad from worse when Unitron arrives at the Megatron's former fortress and find the Autobots there.
So a fight starts and the Autobots are doing pretty good and by pretty good I mean that they didn't get killed and managed to escape.
|Main character shields activate|
Meanwhile the Autobtos are hanging for lives while Bee fights Unitron and he's going great.
He's going much damage to him, but he is fighting nonetheless, and not getting bonus points for that.
Because they can not harm they decide to run away and they escape for real this time.
Predaking makes the beacon in order to call his fellow Predacons, but the beacon calls Unicron instead.
Megatron tricks Unicron into talking to Predaking. But since Predaking hates Megatron for killing his brothers they end up fighting.
Unicron uses his dark Energon power to resurrect the dead Predacons into a zombie army.
This is the best thing EVER for me at least.
I love dragons, I love mechs and I like zombies so this is like the holy trinity for me.
The Autobots figure out Unicron's plan after detecting that burst of dark energon.
He's planning to destroy Primus (duh) by infection the well of Allspark with his zombie army.
But the Allspark is missing so it shouldn't work right?
And Arcee and Bee share what you might call a moment, but then Starcreen comes and ruins their moment.
I think that Predaking needs to prove himself in front of these guys by kicking their asses.
Also Bee manages to trick Starcream you know guys who tried to kill Megatron a couple of times, but is still somehow second in command.
Smokescreen slip and says that we almost become Prime in front Bee [it's a long season 2-3 (season 2 begging of season 3) story Optimus almost died and he was willing to make him a Prime].
|Badass group shot:check|
Also, his reaction is priceless.
Also, I find it kinda funny that Knockout fought against vampires and zombies in throw out the series.
And things look bleak for the Autobots, Optimus arrives.
|Optimus 2.0 VS Unitron awesome just awesome kinda short but awesome|
Also, there's an error in this scene
<- Smokescreen voice is wrong almost sounds like Knockout's voice.
Optimus runs to get the Allspark way, but Unicron gets it and just you think, oh shit they are screwed, it revealed that it's a trap (sorry couldn't help myself).
|Wow, that was really close.|
So Unicron gets his Anti-Spark stuck in the Allspark container and all of the Zombiecons turn to dust before reaching the well.
And this works because they are tied to Unicronand he is contained so suck it Avengers ending when the alien die.
This was a really clever move from the writers have the macguffin server double purpose in the movie.
It was explained before that the relic could contain the Allpsark and Unicron's Anti-Spark isn't so different from Primus's spark so this works perfectly.
But now there's one problem left Megatron is free.What will he do next?
|Hey Predaking look a chew toy.|
WAIT WHAT? I'm not joking this really got me off guard, I wasn't expecting to hear this from him.
So he dispands the Decepticons and runs into space to parts unknown (he was a space drive).
Predaking and friends.
Optimus reveals that he his spark is now one with the Allspark and he must sacrifice himself for the future of Cybertron more on this later.
His speech is really good you should see the movie.It's kinda sad that the Predacons and the humans aren't present during the speech because they played a big in the final battle and in the series and this is Optimus's goodbye
It's an awesome send-off the Prime crew if this would have been the end, it's an awesome end.
But there's transformers go who uses toys that didn't appear in this movie oh, I mean it's a continuation of the show without any of the main characters.
But there's another show in the works that will air 2015 called Transformers Robots in Disguise but there's already a series called that.
And there's also a comic called that from IDW and there's another series called The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye yeah both they used both of the tag lines.
So apparently that series will focus on Bee leading a new cast of characters.
Which is awesome because this movie just showed how capable of a leader he can be.
stepping down (that's why he isn't in the majority of the movie) and Bee rising up.
And speaking of Optimus this is my second favorite of his deaths (I know that this sounds weird).
He is doing this for the future of his race , a noble sacrifice.I like the Armada death better because he stoped a planet buster like weapon with his freaking body thus saving billions of lives.
Also, if Bee is leading a gang of "misfits" they should really add Miko in her Apex Armor or season 3 Sari Sumdac.
vs Sari that would be awesome. Okay folks, that's all for now.
-Final Score:5/5 Techno Zombie Dragons or Zombots
