Trivia

When they created Sky-Lynx, the designers had no idea what his name would be. They were surprised when they found out that he would be called Sky-Lynx, as the name originally belonged to a benevolent and intelligent Autobot character, whereas in this movie, he is a brutish, slow-thinking evil Predacon.

Quotes

Optimus Prime: While this may very well mark the end of the Age of Primes, leadership can be earned, with or without the Matrix. And in my view, you have each acted as a Prime.
Knock Out: Well, I... never really had the best role models...

This film is action packed and very interesting.
18 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bumblebee (Will Friedle-Voice) and his friends have to save their home once again from Megatron (Frank Welker-Voice) who has been trying to take over their world for some time now. While trying to save his world, Bumblebee encounters some obstacles and problems along the way and needs his friends to help him through these challenging times. Will they be able to save the world?

The animation in "Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising" is outstanding with a variety of colors, big characters and lots of detail. There is a little confusion in the beginning of this film but by the middle, everything is making sense and it makes for a good storyline with lots of action. I like the characters' names because they are very unusual and they are not something I would hear every day. My favorite character is Bumblebee because he knows when to take charge when nobody else wants to, knows how to get down to business when others are afraid, and knows who to look up to that gives him wisdom and guidance. The transitions of the transformations goes very smoothly and you can really see them transforming into their shapes, objects or other things/creatures.

Other voice talent actors are Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime) and Steve Blum (Starscream / Darksteel) who do a great job with their voice acting capabilities. They really portray their emotions through their voice, going from happy to sad to angry and back to happy again. It is all so believable and convincing.

One great message in "Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising" is that you should always keep trying, no matter what and never give up. It may get hard sometimes and you feel like you want to quit, but keep trying!

I recommend this film for ages 7 to 15 and people who love The Transformers. There are some violent, intense scenes with robots fighting each, but they are really not too scary to look at. I give this film 4 out of 5 stars because it is a little confusing in beginning and I sometimes cannot understand what a few of the voice characters are saying.
