Let Me Explain

This is a Transformers movie.

In the trilogy called War For Cybertron.

It’s the first movie in that trilogy — and it’s called Siege.

A lot of big deals are going down:

In the midst of ongoing war on Cybertron, forces of good and evil clash as they search for the source of their power: the Allspark. This may not be the life they imagined, but it’s a life worth fighting for.

“The life they imagined?” Do sentient robots imagine a life beyond this awful cave never-ending battle against other, evil sentient robots?

Since “Siege” is a new line of Transformers toys from Hasbro I’m going to assume this movie something targeted specifically at kids, and probably very young kids.

Let’s see together:

OK, now I understand “The life they imagined?” quote: the girl Autobot wanted to just stay home and have a brood of little Autobot babies with ya boi Optimus. 


As far as being for kids, well there is no subversion, no brutal ultra-violence, no “We’re The Real Enemy” storyline, no current year politics, no class warfare, no nasty feminism, no intense bouts of crying.

In other words, it’s nothing like Star Trek: Picard.

Maybe shows for kids are the future of our genre entertainment?

Transformers: War For CybertronSiege is coming soon only to Netflix.
