Transformers: Rise of the Beasts appears to be an attempt to build on what Bumblebee accomplished by establishing a brand-new narrative that gives as much consideration to its human characters as it does to its robot-in-disguise.
It has been five years since the release of Bumblebee, the longest time between episodes in this series to date. Yet the film Rise of the Beasts, directed by Steven Caple Jr., has the impression that it seeks to combine what Bay established with Bumblebee’s commercial triumphs.
As a result, the brand continues to battle with how to make this story function as anything other than a method to sell toys, even while it appears to be moving in the right direction in terms of quality.
One of the standout aspects of this film is its diverse and expansive cast. From the human characters to the robotic beings, Rise of the Beasts features a range of personalities and backgrounds that add depth to the narrative.
The performances by the cast members, including Anthony Ramos as the lead protagonist, are commendable, capturing the emotions and struggles of their characters amidst the chaos of the Transformers world.
The visual effects in this movie are simply spectacular. The transformation sequences, battles, and the sheer scale of the robots are breathtaking, immersing the audience in a world where metallic giants roam the Earth. The CGI work seamlessly blends with the live-action scenes, creating a seamless and visually stunning cinematic experience.
Rise of the Beasts also brings a fresh twist to the Transformers universe by introducing new factions of robots, including the Maximals and Predacons.
This expansion opens up a host of new possibilities and adds an exciting layer to the narrative. The inclusion of iconic Transformers like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, along with the new characters, strikes a perfect balance between nostalgia and innovation.
The storyline of the film is engaging and keeps the audience invested throughout. It incorporates elements of mythology, exploring the origins of the Transformers and their connection to Earth. The film skillfully weaves together human drama and high-stakes action, offering a well-rounded experience that caters to both longtime fans and newcomers to the franchise.
One minor drawback of the film is that, at times, the pacing feels a bit rushed. Certain character arcs and relationships could have benefited from more development and exploration. However, this does not detract significantly from the overall enjoyment of the movie.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is a thrilling addition to the Transformers franchise. With its diverse cast, stunning visual effects, and an engaging storyline, the film successfully revitalizes the series, capturing the essence of what makes the Transformers universe so captivating. Fans of the franchise and action movie enthusiasts alike will find plenty to enjoy in this high-octane adventure.

“For me, its better than Transformers 2007 movie. For those of you who weren’t around to appreciate Beast Wars back in the 90’s, seeing Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal in the same scene is absolutely mind-blowing and means everything to us. This movie is a fun ride. More transformers robot fight scene without human interference. Most robot characters in this movie had their own character. Storytelling kinda great. Its 9/10⭐️ for life action transformers movie.”
