Despite the negative initial panorama, it remains to be seen what the public will think after seeing the film.

About the movie
“Transformers: The Rise of the Beasts” began writing in March 2019 as a sequel to the blockbuster “Bumblebee”.
The shooting of “the awakening of the beasts” started in June 2021 in Los Angeles, California. Between August and October the team moved to Peru, where scenes were filmed in very touristy cities such as Cusco, Ica (Nazca) and San Martín (Tarapoto). The last takes of the tape were filmed on October 20 in Brooklyn and Montreal.
The plot of “Transformers 7” is set in the 90s, when the fight between the Autobots and Decepticons is expanded by the addition of the Maximals and Terrocons. The film will allow us to delve into Optimus Prime’s past and the circumstances that led him to become the leader we know.
The first international reviews
Earlier this week, the first impressions of “Transformers: The Rise of the Beasts” were varied. We transcribe some of them below:
“Several key characters in “Rise of the Beasts” end up facing death, making the film a fable of loyalty and sacrifice. I’m not saying this is Rutger Hauer dying in the rain in ‘Blade Runner,’ but it’s still the rare ‘Transformers’ movie that turns its heavy metal characters into figures of emotion. The battles are clashing spectacles of broken coils and gears, staged as if Optimus, Scourge and the rest were knights or gladiators. The use of Wu-Tang, Biggie and, at a strategic moment, LL Cool J’s ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’ makes you wonder how these movies managed without hip-hop. There’s a bombast built into the material, but let it be said that the ‘Transformers’ movies have been transformed. They’re not the kind of fun you have to hate anymore…”: (Variety)
“The film benefits greatly from its locations, including New York City (and Montreal replacing it) and especially Peru, including the beautiful historic city of Cusco and the ruins of Machu Picchu… Let’s face it, seeing those transformers turn it never gets old-fashioned. These action figures by Hasbro and their on-screen incarnations are capable of turning even the most mature and jaded adult into an amazed child who just wants to get on the floor and play with them”: (The Hollywood Reporter)
“Inert and unable to harness its best features, including a charismatic Anthony Ramos and an incredibly stellar voice cast (such as Michelle Yeoh and Pete Davidson), ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ is far from the kickoff of the summer in the cinemas. Movie ambitions rise to the same heights as your little brother beating his toys together”: (Reverse)
“Everything has a vague partial ending, as if director Steve Caple Jr and the five-person brains behind the script are relying on audience familiarity with the shape of a movie to fill in the gaps they’ve left”:(The Guardian)
