I don’t know how this one got by me, but I was not aware of this movie until a few minutes ago. I just watched the trailer and I’m liking what I’m seeing. Watch it now, then let’s talk:
Here’s what I like about what I’m seeing in this trailer. I like that it’s missing Shia LaBeouf. I also really like that it’s added Mark Wahlberg. This one feels like it’s a legitimate movie. The first 3 were ok. It was a lot of eye candy, with the fancy Transformers and all of the awesome CGI that went into building them. But I never felt invested in the plotline really. It was just, let’s run around and save stuff and be corny. This one has the feeling of a legitimate movie. I know, I know it’s movie number 4. I’m a little surprised they got Mark to sign onto a fourth movie, but he did and it looks pretty sweet. I’m excited to see it and I’m surprised that I am. So good job Hasbro! Let’s see what you’ve got.
