Spoilers - don't read
and when *SPOILER* you see that Cobra sigil on the side of the submarine, I totally got chills.
I totally missed that. Was looking for the sigils throughout the movie - especially on Miller's chest, but obviously Cobra doesn't exist until the end of the movie.
I enjoyed the movie for what it was, but I didn't really care too much for it other than it being a nice end of Summer popcorn fun flick. Great big fight scenes, sexy women, and big explosions oh my! Was kinda cool seeing the 30 something year old dads bringing their kids in there with them. It kinda felt like watching a cartoon for the most part at least IMO.
I'm not going a review route, but rather some totally random observations..
I thought the young SE & SS flashback fights were way too aggressive for the kiddos. Can see a bunch of kids either wanting to learn karate or wanting to beat the **** out of each other.
Wayans - All I could think about was In Living Color or Scary Movie everytime they showed his face so it was very difficult to take him seriously. I did enjoy one of his one-liners - after he got stuck with the needle.
Brandon Fraiser...Why did they have to keep his role in the movie so secret?
Saw some Star Wars carried through in this movie which were very obvious. The Baroness looking back and forth between good and evil and then finally "saving the day" The end fight with SE & SS had the TPM & ROTJ end dual written all over it.
"The doctor" created Destro and his new self - Cobra Commander at the end. Complete with stupid mask and stupid voice. Seems like they couldn't find time to weave that into the movie, so they just puked it all up at the end.
It's set up good for the sequel though.
Oh...and Dressel hates Transformers.
