This collection features two episodes: Overloaded where the Autobots must split their forces to battle two different, but both dangerous, Decepticons. While Optimus takes his team to the Artic Circle to face off against Polarclaw, Bumblee and his team must battle against Overload, an ancient Decepticon who has a grudge against Optimus. Second episode is Decepticon Island where the Autobot teams are reunited, but all is not well as they discover that Steeljaw is leading a Decepticon guerilla army. Though outnumbered, the Autobots will have to defeat Steeljaw’s army if they want to keep the world safe. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Jolleen comments, ““This movie has great animations!

This movie has great animations! The battle scenes are very detailed and it is pleasing to see that there are diverse types of conflict. In this film, the conflict isn’t always good vs. bad. Sometimes it is conflict within the team about who should lead, or even who loves conflicts. The plotline is awesome as well. It really held my interest.

This is a film where the autobots (Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Strongarm, Sideswipe, Fixit) fight against the Decepticons. The goal of the Decepticons is to take over Earth and inhabit the planet for themselves. The autobots protect the humans and try to prevent any damage that the Decepticons might make.

Bumblebee (Will Friedle) is the leader of the autobots. Will Friedle’s voice sounds strong and makes you think that he knows what he’s doing. Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) is the mentor of Bumblebee and was the leader before Bumblebee. Peter Cullen’s voice sounds old, making Optimus Prime seem wise and experienced. The casting director really found great voice talent for these roles!

The animation is spot on. All the movements are easy to follow, the quality of the movie is great and the backdrops are nicely done as well. Everything is very detailed and looks quite realistic. My favorite part is when the whole autobot team works together and comes up with a strategy to defeat the polar bear Decepticon. It is amazing to see them planning and then actually following through with their plan until it works out in the end. I loved seeing the autobots accomplish something together.

The message of this film is to stay strong, focused and remember that teamwork is important. Bumblebee and Optimus prime fight over something so small, but it almost tears apart their friendship. It almost costs the lives of their comrades. But they stay focused, work together and are successful in their mission. The autobots are very moral characters who fight for the greater good. The film tries to influence people to be like the autobots and teaches people how to react in times of trouble.

This film is well thought out. I give it 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for the ages 5 to 12. It has a positive message that everyone should hear. I recommend that parents watch it with together with their child. This is available on DVD May 30, 2017 so, go check it out.

Transformers Robots in Disguise is a great double-feature package. The animation and voice acting are really good. Transformers fans will rejoice at this movie.

The double-feature follows two stories. In the first one, “Overloaded,” Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) is powered down and splits the team in two with Bumblebee in defense of the junkyard. Bumblebee (Will Friedle) runs into Overload (Dave Fennoy), a Decepticon, while the rest of the team runs into Polarclaw. In the second one, “Decepticon Island,” Bumblebee, in lead of the team, discovers information which leads to Decepticon Island where the Mini-Bots are held captive. The team attempt to free the Mini-Bots. However, the plan fails when Steeljaw (Troy Baker) captures the team.

Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime steals the show with a voice of iron. His portrayal of leadership works well, too and he is my favorite character. Will Friedle as Bumblebee presents an immature attitude to Optimus especially when he disagrees with Optimus. Dave Fennoy as Overload is funny with his finesse of theater. Troy Baker as Steeljaw is deceptive with his use of tricks to climb the power ladder of the Decepticon. Darren Criss as Sideswipe displays a constant, competitive banter with Strongarm, who is another Autobot. Constance Zimmer as Strongarm portrays her banter with Sideswipe quite well.  Khary Payton as Grimlock, a Dinobot transformer, provides excellent comedic relief. Mitchell Whitfield as Fixit,  is a Mini-Bot who expresses his care to his fellow captured Mini-Bots.

From the emotions portrayed in the characters’ faces to the fluid action, the animation by Amrish Sharma is impressive. His handling of the characters’ emotions between Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in the second feature, “Decepticon Island,” is an example. My favorite scene is when Steeljaw corners the Autobots due to his impressive character introduction. My only problem with this double-feature is the lack of introduction of the characters and the lack of history about the different types of robotic characters.

The movie’s message is all about the importance of teamwork. Despite Optimus Prime’s weakness, the team works together to complete the mission with tremendous success. I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 6 to 12 because the action scenes between the two robot factions appeal to the younger audiences. This DVD collection releases on May 30th, so check it out if you want to see some impressive animation.
