But...the robots are completely different. I'm not trying to jump on you I swear haha. but here the robots are built and controlled by people. In transformers they're the aliens.
Well, the movies have their differences, and I don't think this is just a Transformers remake or anything, I just felt like they were pretty similar.
Definitely not the same movie. Transformers characters were all unlikable as hell and just got worse as the movies went on. Even the robots were annoying, outside of Optimus Prime. Yes, it's fighting robots, but the human element adds something to it
And doesn't take away from the story.
Plus there's some actual stakes in this. There was never any of that in Transformers.
I dug this movie. Maybe a little too long and could use one less fight. But its the best big action movie this summer.
Yes, they are different movies, but they are very similar. Pacific Rim was way better because of the stakes, and the human element, but it's essentially just a bunch of robots fighting, just like Transformers. Granted I didn't see any of the Transformers sequels, because I thought the first one was horrible. Don't get me wrong I liked Pacific Rim, quite a bit actually, but the whole time I was watching it, I felt like I was watching Transformers with better CGI, better characters, and a better story.
