Pure entertainment

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

My nephew loves Transformers. He has the toys, the stickers, the pajamas, and adores Autobot heroes Bumblebee and Optimus Prime.

He also went to see the new Transformers movie and loved it. I’m sure he loved it for all the cool robots and the great transformations that they performed.

Watching the movie myself, the plot seemed a little too similar to the first movie and there wasn’t much of a story. More evil robots concoct more devious plans to destroy earth. Why? Because they don’t like us. The movie doesn’t really explain the reasons for this hatred.

I could go on with my criticisms, but it is not necessary. This holiday weekend, if you are looking for a movie to watch, go see “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” and view it as my nephew did –  as a 100 percent pure fun and entertaining movie.  

What the movie lacks in plot, it more than makes up for in energy, thrills and action. Even at 28 years old, I was sitting on the edge of my seat just as I am sure my nephew did, frantic to find out what happens next.

The movie traveled from a posh ivy-covered college to New York City to the deserts of Egypt.
