Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

This is a difficult movie to follow if you haven't seen the previous three seasons of Transformers Prime and if you're someone who doesn't quite know Decepticons from Predacons. Although the fight scenes are enjoyable on their own terms, the complicated histories and backstories make this best for the most die-hard of Transformers fans. For everyone else, it isn't easy keeping track of what's going on.

This is also the conclusion of the Transformers Prime television series. Although some of the scenes stand on their own, without the context of the previous three seasons it isn't always easy figuring out what the characters are trying to do and why. That said, series fans will find lots to enjoy.
