THE LYONS is back for 4 more weekends! Get your ticket now! "Brilliant performances...Funny, moving and thoughtful and just a little bit nutty, The Lyons is a play for the darkly real among us."- NoHo Arts District
The last movie from Michael Bay prior to beginning his downward spiral into becoming a parody of himself with every new production. Written by Hollywood cash cows Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, we follow teenager Sam Witwicky who after buying his first car gets caught in the center of a conflict between two robotic alien factions fighting over the almighty object known as the Allspark, hidden somewhere on earth.
Shia LaBeouf plays the kinda annoying, kinda charming Sam perfectly and Megan Fox is great as the stereotypical bad ass and love interest, but as far as acting goes, voice over legends Peter Cullen, Jess Harnell and Charlie Adler (joined by a phenomenal Hugo Weaving) steals the show as the non human characters.
The music is what we expect from a Bay movie at this point - dramatic and bombastic and just as exaggerated as everything else, as it should be. Bay's directing and the cinematography can at times be almost overwhelming, with things happening on several layers of every shot, and even if it sometimes becomes too much, there's still some great filmmaking going on, disguised as popcorn entertainment.
If you take Transformers for what it is, as in a highly stylized action adventure based on a kids' TV show based in turn on a Japanese toy line of transforming, giant robots, you're bound to have a good time.
I used to never leave my apartment without this screenplay in my backpack. Firstly, because I want to write a screenplay that is as good as this one day. Secondly, because you can literally open up to any page and either laugh your ass off, or start crying, or both at the same time.
It's been such a long while since I've seen a movie that has made me feel as much as 500 Days of Summer.
Thank you #scottneustadter#michaelweber#marcwebb @hitrecordjoe and @zooeydeschanel for such an incredible cinematic experience.
