I saw this through an early screening at my local Regal and I loved it. I plan on revisiting it. This film has great storytelling and emotion and takes time to build the relationship between Bumblebee and Charlie. Travis Knight may have single-handedly saved this franchise. The humor was on point and never felt out of place. John Cena, you know, he's there. He isn't bad but his character doesn't really have any depth or emotion. It's almost like Charlie said in the film, "Bumblebee is a robot but is more than you'll ever be." But I didn't mind it. And since when was Angela Bassett a transformer? Lol. 4.5/5. One of the best blockbusters I've seen this year, and a heartfelt one at that.
Despite the forgettable score, bland story and uninspired cinematography, Clint Eastwood has built a heartfelt and understandably desperate story about a 90 year old drug Mule. The acting was great, especially Cooper, and the only performance that stood out to me in a slightly negative way was Laurence Fishburne, who, kind of like Forest Whitaker, is a name actor that just plays himself on set, like you know what you will get out of it. Anyways, the story felt emotional and the stakes felt real. Everyone had a desire and need in the story, and it flowed so god damn well.
This film is really bad. I'm not going to start. It has just a few good scenes, and I thought this was advertised as a comedy! There was one funny scene. Jesus I can go on. But frankly, I want to forget all about it.
Despite the pacing issues and comedic moments (only a couple of times) taking some of the emotional investment out, it's a great story with a powerful ending.
I really wanted to like this movie since many of my friends said I had to see it. Halfway through, I was having a god damn blast! I loved it. And then as soon as that boyfriend guy said "you are the most human person I've ever met" or some cliche shit like that that I can only assume was written by George Lucas himself, the film went south. The pacing went in 3 different directions, the action began to feel uninspired, and it just fell apart. For once, I was going to walk out of a theater after paying $20 for a ticket food and drink and not end up hating myself for it! Looks like I can't do that. Jesus Christ.
At least the action was a ton of fun and I thoroughly enjoyed myself when it happened.
