Influenced by the Beast Wars storyline, the Transformers series of movies is a famous film franchise based on Hasbro's Transformers toy line.

 Six films have been made so far, out of which Michael Bay had directed the first 5 films while he produced the 6th film, Bumblebee (2018) which was directed by Travis Knight. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is the 7th instalment of the series and is as a sequel to Bumblebee.

The ‘Transformers’ series of films have transported the movie goers wide across the length and breadth on a spectacular journey of action adventure through 6 movies so far.

Now,  Transformers: Rise of the Beasts  takes audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure with the Autobots and introduce a whole new faction of Transformers – the Maximals – joining them as allies in the epic battle for Earth. 

The screenplay has been set in 1994 Brooklyn.  Noah (Anthony Ramos), an ex-military electronics expert, and Elena (Dominique Fishback), an artifact researcher, are swept up in a three-way conflict between the Maximals, Predacons and Terrorcons as they aid Optimus Prime and the Autobots in a war to protect Earth from Unicron's arrival.​

What works for the film is the pace which is racy but with enough of a human and emotional angle to keep you invested in the characters. The narrative is gripping while the proceedings  avoid  going over the top with mindless destruction. The scenes in Peru and interesting as are the family scenes with the two brothers.

Dialogues are minimal but effective. The visuals are breaththaking in several places and the stunts are edge- of- the -seat stuff, while the twist at the end is the icing on the cake. 

An engaging summer watch for family. audiences
