    The Review

    Cybertron has been torn apart by war. The war between the Autobots and Decepticons has come to a head and forced all involved to find refuge elsewhere in the universe. Prime has found a hopeful planet that could be a refuge for the Autobots. B-127 is sent to this planet to start over. Upon his arrival, he is met with less than friendly forces. It’s easy to fear/hate that which we do not understand. B-127 manages to elude those who are hunting him but not before a Decepticon catches up to him. B-127 refuses to cooperate and that costs him dearly. As he is fading, he must transform. This transformation will protect him, but it will also lead him to his new future. Charlie is about to turn 18, obsessed with cars, she spends much of her time at the junkyard. One particular little VW Beetle catches her eye. Little does she know that there is much more to this car than meets the eye. By themselves, they are broken. Together, they will help one another fix those broken pieces. She will help him find his voice and he will help her find her place. There are many out there that want to stop them and destroy Bee (the name she gives him). What they must do will test each of them to their limits. This is much more than it seems on the surface. It’s so much more than a Transformers movie. There’s laughter and love, heartache and heroism, turmoil and triumphs. You don’t have to be a transformers fan to find something here to enjoy, but this could make the heartiest skeptic a die hard fan.

    There’s a bonus scene in the beginning of the credits that may take you by surprise.
