    This review is from: Transformers Prime: Predacons Rising [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
    I watched a pre-release copy of “Predacons Rising” earlier today. It picks up right after the last episode of Transformers Prime, Season 3 (if you haven’t watched the series, certainly do that first). And if you are not aware of Transformers Prime, it is the BEST series since Transformers G1.

    Everyone hates spoilers so I won’t speak of the plot, but I will say that this movie is on par with the Transformers Movie from 1986. The animation and story line are terrific, and it is definitely made for adults (but still kid-friendly). It’s also a pleasure to watch it flow as a continuous movie with no cuts for commercial breaks.

    Do yourself a favor and buy this. My only regret is that this movie is the finale of a fantastic series.

    This review is from: Transformers Prime: Predacons Rising [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
    I am a huge fan of Transformers Prime. I loved how Season 3/the series ended. Also I would agree with other reviewers that this is the BEST Transformers series since the original, however I do not agree that this film was on par with the 1986 Classic TF:TM. While Predacons Rising has a solid plot (No spoilers here I promise), I do feel it left several loose ends. If the next Transformers series would pick up where this one ended, I would be ok with that (ala Beast Machines from Beast Wars) however with the next iteration set to be more “family friendly” I do not see how that would be possible considering the current status of some characters in this universe. As for the film itself, it is quite entertaining, it is pretty much the self-contained story I always wanted. Also the *absence* of a certain species in this film is absolutely a plus. The ending however was bittersweet. It felt a little like how Beast Machines ended, but executed far better. One thing I will say. –Season 3 left me lamenting the loss of this series, wanting to see it go on. Predacons Rising however (based on its conclusion) reversed that decision for me. Despite the loose ends, I do not need or want to see any more stories told in this continuity. Hasbro has for the first time forcibly caused me to “move along” with them onto the next thing and not constantly feel regret for what is , in my opinion, ending to soon. well played Hasbro, well played.

    Good Movie, But Many Missed Opportunities, October 5, 2013

    SPOILER ALERT! I have included spoilers, so don’t read any further if you have not seen the movie yet.

    I have been a huge Transformers fan for the past six years and have watched Transformers Prime since its beginning back in the fall of 2010 and have loved it with every episode that has been released. I was very satisfied with how the series ended and, when I discovered there was still one more movie (not to mention the first animated Transformers movie since the one in 1986), I could not wait to see it. However, I felt a bit let down after watching the ending to this amazing show.

    I will definitely admit that it had its perks. The animation was flawless and looked better than it ever has. Most of the lines and the fight scenes were amazing and the characters remained in character (always a plus). Also, it only had Transformers. NO HUMANS AT ALL!! Which was also very nice to see!

    The thing that erked me the most while watching this movie were the many missed opportunities, especially for the older fans (considering this show had many references to the older shows). Here is my list of what I expected:

    1) With Unicron using Megatron’s body as a vessel, it would have been epic to see Primus come alive through Optimus. Then, a million year old rivalry would have come alive again through the present rivalry of Megatron and Optimus. Not to mention, fans have not truly witnessed Primus himself since the Cybertron series released in 2005-2006. It would have been nice to see the BIG guy again.

    2) I did very much like how Megatron finally was able to see the light by witnessing what Unicron planned to do to Cybertron, but I expected Megatron and Optimus’s last confrontation to end more like the ending of the Dark of the Moon film adaptation by Peter David.
    *SPOILER ALERT*: If you have not read the DOTM movie adaptation, I highly recommend it. The endings between the book and the movie are night and day to one another with the book ending having Megatron and Optimus coming to a truce and agreeing to rebuild Cybertron rather than fighting over it. It would have been nice for Optimus and Megatron to have a conversation about the rebuilding of their newly restored planet at the end of Predacons Rising.

    3) It would have been nice to see more Transformers rather than the ones we have been following throughout the entire series. More Autobots and Decepticons who have perhaps taken refuge somewhere upon the planet (maybe in stasis or something) or maybe even hiding out on one of Cybertron’s two moons. It would have been nice to see more of the fan favorite Autobots like Ironhide and Jazz, the female Autobots (who, even on a dead planet in the G1 series, still managed to survive), or maybe the other Decepticon seekers like Skywarp and Thundercracker. Having more Transformers would have made the end battle with the terrorcon Predacons that much more epic.

    4) The final battle between Unicron/ Megatron and Optimus was… short. So very, very short. They had more intense battle sequences throughout the show: Darkness Rising, Part 5 and Alpha, Omega to name a couple of the episodes. This is where the battle between Unicron and Primus could have been inserted.

    My list is shorter than I anticipated, but these are just things that erked me about the movie and this is only my opinion. I am not sure if other fans feel the same way about these missed opportunities, but perhaps I staked my hopes to high before actually watching this movie. I am not trying to write anyone off from seeing it nor am I attempting to change how anyone views it, I am simply stating what I had hoped to see in a series that has done so well over the past three years.
