“I saw this a couple weeks ago for the first time in a while. It actually holds up surprisingly well, mostly because it’s simply a solid action movie. Possibly among the all time best. It’s certainly director Michael Bay’s best work, before he started getting in his own way. We’ve heard me rant about him before, and I’m sure we’ll hear it again with his next Transformers, so I’ll spare that this time.
But yeah, even though I had a vague recollection of what was gonna happen, and I was only halfway paying attention since I was gaming, I still felt the palpable suspense. For a film that’s 20 years old (srsly?! WTF?!) plus those circumstances, that’s truly saying something.”
