The year is 2005…
For millennia, the heroic Autobots, led by Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen), have been at war with the evil Megatron (Frank Welker) and his Decepticons over control of their home planet of Cybertron. However, an even greater threat: Unicron (Orson Welles, Citizen Kane), a colossal converting planet that devours everything in its path and is heading right for Cybertron. The only hope is the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. Will the Autobots be able to save themselves and their home world in time?
An all-star cast, including Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek), Eric Idle (the Monty Python films) and Robert Stack (The Untouchables), brings this inimitable, explosively entertaining Autobot adventure to life.
Thanks to a special showing via FathomEvents and AMC, my wife and I watched the 1986 animated “Transformers” last night. For me, it was a fantastic reminder of how awesome tv was when I was a kid, for her, it was a chance to take a quick nap. I never got to see this movie back when it was originally released in theaters, so it was a great experience.
