I can’t front – it was dope.
Just enough action, just enough humor. Shia failed to disappoint, the 5 minute Bernie Mac scene was comedy, and Tyrese (I can’t believe I’m typing this) did not deliver any corny “I’m just here to get black people in those seats” lines….but then again that’s probably because he only had 4 lines throughout the whole thing. The robots (sans the cliché “THUG KILL NIGGA” Jazz) all had interesting personalities as well.
I was really amazed by Shia’s ability to carry the movie along between the action (although some of the dialogue felt forced), and his scenes w/ Megan Fox were pretty funny too. Overall I would say that Transformers definitely exceeded my mediocre expectations…especially the way they blew a lot of shit up (c) LL (not the rappa).
I’m not gonna write an in-depth review because I don’t pay attention to movies like that, but Transformers is definitely worth the ticket price, and if you haven’t already done so, check it out.
So yeah….I was wrong….blah blah blah.
