Finally Another Transformers Movie!
17 December 1999 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Not since 1986 had the Transformers hit the movie screens. But after 12 years, they're back! And it's about time! The movie is composed of three segments, two of which are recycled from the Canadian CG Beast Wars program. The highlight is the original 45 minute cel-animated segment called "Beast Wars Second:Lio Convoy Kiki Ippatsu". It's good to see hand drawn Transformers again, and the animation is light years above that of the Beast Wars Second TV series. The plot is fairly similar to the previous TF movie (Giant Monster Transformer can only be stopped by the Matrix), but it's still a lot of fun to watch! TRANSFORM!!
