The Delivery

There have been so many incarnations of Transformers over the years, but Generation One, the original series, still holds a special place in the hearts of hard core fans.

Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand DVD Review

  • Cinelinx
The Movie Pool rolls out the new Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand DVD!

The Set-up

Megatron joins forces with the Autobots to battle Unicron, whose presence threatens every life on Earth.

The Delivery

This epic story arc includes seven episodes of Transformers Prime, and is better than any of the plots for the Transformers movies. Incredibly well written, the storyline is intelligent and told with plenty of drama and emotion, something other incarnations of Transformers have failed to do.

CGI animation often feels a bit cold and calculated, devoid of a soul. When it comes to animated robots, the emotional disconnection can be even more apparent. The Prime incarnation manages to work thanks to combination of great writing and good voice acting. Sure, these are still a bunch of robots blowing stuff up, but you connect with their personalities and like them.

The One Shall Stand storyline spans the

DVD Review: Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand

  • Cinelinx
Transformers truly are a toy and movie franchise that bridge generation gaps. As a 28-year old industry, it gives parents who grew up with the "Robots in Disguise" a way to geek out with their children. The Autobots and Decepticons are more popular now than they've ever been after three blockbuster movies and a successful weekly CG television series still airing. Shout! Factory's Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand is made up of seven episodes of that successful show melded together into one seamless film. 

Humankind is once again threatened by Megatron and his Decepticons as the diabolical leader continues to seek for the way to unlock the powers of Dark Energon. Optimus Prime and the Autobots must come head to head with the evil robots before Megatron can discover its full potential. At the same time, a more sinister threat is discovered at the center of the Earth... Unicron.
