I know a lot of people have been saying that they did not like the movie because of the bad storyline. It wasn't the best but I was surely entertained when I watched with my boys. I'm glad too that Sweetie served as my interpreter/Transformers historian since the only characters I remember from watching it when I was a kid were Optimus Prime and Megatron.
I think I want to watch the movie again because the elements were overwhelming. There was too much detail compared to the cartoons and I had a difficult time distinguishing one character from the other. I don't have that much knowledge about the Transformers so I guess that's why I appreciated the movie.
One character that definitely caught my attention was Jet Fire. I was giddy while watching the movie because I had gone to the Air & Space Museum with my Ate last time I was in the US and I took a number of photos of the Lockheed SR-71A Blackbird which posed as Jet Fire in the movie.
The Lockheed SR-71A Blackbird is an ominous presence at the Air & Space Museum and I got some photos of it while I was there. Here it is:
Now I know the reason why it felt like it was alive. LOL.
