So thanks to Shout Factory, we received an advance DVD review of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising the movie. We, here at Alternative Mindz, have been huge supporters of the Prime series on Hub channel so we were especially excited when this showed up on our doorstep. This DVD release is supposed to bridge the gap of the series and help tie up any loose ends.
(Below we will slightly spoil events of the series and movie)
The movie takes place on a barren wasteland once known as Cybertron.
Optimus Prime, with fellow Autobots Arcee, Wheel Jack, Bulk Head, Ultra Mahmud and Bumble Bee (who got his voice box back), are trying to restore Cybertron and bring home all refugees.
Optimus and Wheel Jack set out to find the AllSpark, leaving Ultra Magnus and the rest to search out Cybertron for any survivors. In their search, they find Predaking, the once mighty leader of the Predacons.
He is in no mood after his defeat on Earth. We soon find that Starscream and Shockwave are cloning remains of fallen Predacons.
This film has everything you need and everything you love about the Prime series. I don’t want to spoil too much, but a great evil returns and, in a weird way, is an homage to the 1986 TF film.
I give Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Movie a 4.5/5 and everyone needs to buy this film when it comes out.
This amazing DVD has a behind the scenes featurette and is available on Blu Ray tomorrow.
