Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Movie Review
After several movies in the franchise that relied solely on Michael Bay explosions, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts proves a much-needed step in the right direction. While it’s not quite as likable as Bumblebee, this installment still has enough heart and a good mix of characters to make it enjoyable for both kids and adults.
The film opens with a prologue that explains how the Primals, a group of animal-like robots, defeated the planet-eating Unicron and fled to Earth in ancient times. The movie then jumps to 1994, where twentysomething Noah Diaz (Anthony Ramos) struggles to find a decent job so that he can pay for the medical bills of his sick brother Kris (Dean Scott Vazquez). In desperation, Noah agrees to steal a Porsche during a gala, only to discover that it is actually a self-driving Transformer called Mirage. Meanwhile, museum intern Elena Wallace (Dominique Fishback) makes an incredible discovery on Ellis Island.

How to watch Transformers Movies
Being a large and superhit franchise, the latest edition of Transformers has been released in the theatres only. However, movie lovers and cinephiles who want to watch it online may have to wait for some time till the film gets released on the OTT, which is most likely to be on the platform – Paramount Plus.
While the story is somewhat convoluted, and some characters feel unnecessary, it is still a fun ride for those who are fans of the franchise. The action sequences are very exciting, and watching the giant robots transform never gets old. Moreover, the film’s characters are likable and well-developed. The only little problem is that it does not have the emotional heft of a true Transformers movie, but it does make for an entertaining summer blockbuster.
