The movie Transformers4 is half machine and half human experience. The 3D effects are awesome. Special effects are brilliant. Overall it is a good treat to eyes and senses.
The movie starts with an interesting human touch in the story- with father and daughter and his boyfriend trio. The, father, the mechanics freak finds an old truck hidden in junk and brings it at his farm house.
Later, the movie unfolds that it turns out to be missing the transformer which the authorities are looking for. Meanwhile they track down the location and plan an assault. At that time, after repairing some parts of the transformer he gains the sympathy of the machine in his favor. And at that time, authorities assault the location and the Transformer truck turns into a transformer power house and starts retaliating. The story then moves on and the other fleet of transformers now split into two groups one siding with the authorities enters into deadly fighting sequences.
The teenage girl in the movie is a new entry as well his boyfriend. The father is initially possessive about her daughter and doesn’t approve much of her boyfriend in the beginning. But her boyfriend gradually turns out to be really a good helping hand for both father & daughter.
Later, the daughter also gets trapped up in the transformer air station, where they go after to rescue her.
The movie is interesting and gripping and you sit on the edge of the seat for many action sequences.
We watched the movie in Lahore IMAX at Cinestar, Township, which has been revamped tastefully to international standards. The larger than life screen size was a real treat to the eyes, The 3D experience was even better than the ordinary, but it all comes with 3 times price Rs: 1000/- each.
But once in a while it definitely deserves that experience to watch it on big size.
The Direction of the movie Transformers4 certainly is top class. The action sequences are the real meat for the movie than the actual story line. You mostly go to watch the visual effects wonders in the movie. Those are simply superb.
For those who have not seen it yet and are a fan of such sci-fi action movies then go for it. Those who don’t like such action movies, then wait for the next movie review for a different movie which may have an appeal to different literati segment.
