Universal Studios Transformers The Ride 3D Review

So the summer movie season is officially in full swing, with all kinds of big blockbusters hitting theaters each and every week, offering up action-packed experiences of the highest cinematic quality and the best visual effects studio money can buy. And no matter how impressive the 3D or digital technology, there's only so much you can experience from your seat in a crowded movie theater.


For those of you thrill-seekers out there who are looking for a little extra bang for your buck and willing to take a trip to the west coast, Universal Studios has taken the best elements of the fancy cinematic 3D technology and incorporated it into their latest, cutting-edge attraction with "Transformers The Ride 3D." Think "Star Tours" but with amped-up, in-your-face-battle-action involving Optimus Prime, Megatron and trusty Bumblebee.

MTV News was lucky enough to snag an invite to come check out the ride just before it opened to the public. Here's a rundown of what to expect:

The ride is built around several aspects that will be familiar to fans of the film franchise. As you enter the ride space you are swept up in joining a tactical effort to stop Megatron and the Decepticons from mounting an attack and getting control of the AllSpark. As soon as passengers are belted into their EVAC vehicles, the real fun begins and you are literally thrown into the middle of a robot battle. The individual passenger cars weave in and out of the story, with stylized 3D projections in front of you that make it seem as though you're part of the fight. The actual movement of the cars includes major twists and turns, as well as huge butterfly-inducing drops that simulate the cars flying through the air and dangling from Transformers' finger tips. Not to mention the characters literally get in your face via the projections and 3D glasses.

In collaboration with Industrial Light & Magic, Universal created a ride with high definition 3D media that brings every metallic feature of your favorites to life. The ride also uses advanced flight simulation technology. Every move in battle sends you whipping through air, crashing into buildings, flipping your sense of reality. It truly is a multi-sensory, adrenaline-jolting experience.

During our disembarkation, one of our colleagues pointed out that the 3D rides are likely a glimpse into the future of what movie-going might become: highly-technical, multimedia and multi-sensory extravaganzas. We can definitely see the value in transforming (no pun intended) more popular film franchises into theme park rides, particularly when Universal has produced such a fun alternative to the "Transformers" movies with its entertaining and satisfying new attraction.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
