I think it merits another go, though I haven't done so either cause yeah....really, really weird. But kinda fascinatingly weird.

I didn't love it either exactly, but definitely thought it was a shit load of fun and probably a weak 4/5 or solid 3.5/5. Enjoyable stuff. Just wish he'd do another Transformers...

...and by that I mean another Transformers 1.
