Optimus Prime and Bumblebee have now joined the Maximals to take down Unicron! Yes, the Transformers franchise is back, which marks Hasbro and Paramount's new attempt to appeal to the collective psyche of all Millennials. And let us tell you, it does not disappoint. Titled Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, the film releases in India on June 9. The Steven Caple-directorial will practically make us 90s kids jump in joy with its charm and humour. By now, seven films into this science-fiction action franchise, you'll know exactly what you're getting into. However, even though the storyline has nothing new to offer, the fight scenes and the stunning visuals are off the charts! It is actually quite entertaining.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is based on Hasbro's Transformers toy line, primarily influenced by the Beast Wars storyline. The film is the seventh installment in the Transformers live-action film series. The new franchise stars Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, as well as the voice talents of Ron Perlman, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Yeoh, Liza Koshy, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Pete Davidson, Colman Domingo, Cristo Fernández, Tongayi Chirisa, and returning franchise regulars Peter Cullen, John DiMaggio, and David Sobolov.

While Michael Bay’s Transformers was one of the first blockbusters based on a toy, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is no less. It starts off on an alien planet with the Maximals ruling it. They are alien robots. Unicron is a world-eating entity who wants to end their world and the earth too. The main drive of the film is a device called the Trans Warp Key which is protected by robot animal transformers called Maximals. The villain, Unicron and his minions, are also after the key so that the Terricon transformer, Scourge, can have it. What ensues later is an epic battle. But unfortunately, things aren't always easy.

Interestingly, we are introduced to Noah Diaz here (played by Anthony Ramos), a military veteran struggling to earn money for his mom and sick younger brother. He is drowning in hospital bills so he decides to steal a very slick-looking Porsche one day, which just so happens to be a Transformer. Meanwhile, in another sequence, a museum researcher named Elena Wallace (played by Dominique Fishback) finds half of the Trans Wrap Key and accidently activates it. Noah and Elena team up with the Autobots to prevent Unicron from destroying the planet. Thus begins the race to find the other part of the key and classy action scenes.
