There are some things that people just don't like about the Transformers live action movies, so I observed some of the complaints. I realized how a lot of people say that there was no soul or emotion in the movies. That the plot wasn't as driven, and I beg to differ. Let's think about this here, and I don't know if children as getting this message but I did.
The movies showed the importance of humans. It showed us about bullying which has become quite an epidemic in schools and neighborhoods the world over. It shows how important the weak and small are and that we should look out for each other no matter where we are from. It also shows one person matters among the many.
Though one point of view with the Decepticons shows survival at any costs of their homeworld, Optimus and the autobots showed that you just can't achieve what you want at risk of other lives. He would not sacrifice the lives of others that were deemed younger, smaller, weaker for nothing not even his home. It showed how goodness and right always wins the day even when it gets rough if you stay the course the good outweighs the bad.
Love was an essential part of these films from the Autobots for humanity, how humans band together for the sake of all against Decepticons, it showed how you can be evil and bad and still change your ways and be accepted. It also showed that good people are not beyond evil concepts. There are both sides to us all, we just need that one moment to tip the scale (Sentinel Prime).
All in all there is a sense of empowerment there if you chose to see it. It is after all a child's plaything, and adult's collectors item, a homage to a generation fresh from the cold war, civil rights, and everything that goes along with it. Yeah there are bad things about the films as well sterotypes, lewd humor that is not suitable for children because in the end it is a child's plaything more than a collectors item. Tell me your thoughts on this post!
