Reviewed by Joy Parris: You don’t need to know about The Transformers Franchise to enjoy the seventh installation Transformers: Rise of the Beasts out in theaters. Directed by Steven Caple Jr. and starring Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, the film will take you on an action-packed ride across the globe.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts introduces the audience to a whole new faction of Transformer-the Maximals. It’s an old-age story of good versus evil and the Autobus and with the help of unsuspecting humans, they need to save the earth. The opening scene is exciting and will keep you excited about what’s coming next. To save themselves and the Earth Autobots team up with their time-traveling descendants, the Maximals, which take animal form rather than cars and trucks.
The opening scene is exciting and will keep you excited about what’s coming next. Anthony Ramos plays Noah Diaz, a former military tech expert desperately seeking a job and with his background one would assume it would be easy-wrong! At every turn, he runs up against job discrimination from employers. The stress of not finding work to help pay the medical bills for his little brother Kris( Dean Scott Vazquez) takes a toll on him emotionally.
His friend Reek(. ) convinces him to steal a Porsche though reluctant and nervous he says yes. Reek tells him if he sticks to the plan, it will be easy money. Once in the warehouse, it is clear Noah is not a car thief. He finally gets to the car but the door won’t open. You probably guessed the Porsche is Mirage until you see the movie I will leave the rest to your imagination.
On the other side of town, we meet Elena Wallace (Dominique Fishback) brilliant artifact researcher who is smarter than her boss. A boss who continuously steals her ideas. So when a new bird sculpture arrives she decides to study this mysterious artifact and accidentally triggers a Transwarp key sending out a signal that attracts the Autobots and the Terrorcons. And the main antagonists are the Terrorcons, ready to destroy Earth to serve their leader: the planet-eating behemoth, Unicron. I really enjoyed this movie not because of the action and spectacular special effects but for its heart and the character development of both humans and the Autobots.
Transformers: Rise of the Beast shows the love for family and the importance of loyalty, traits humanity is in need of in today’s sometimes chaotic world. With witty dialogue and superb performers from both humans and Autobots, it’s a film the entire family can enjoy.
