TRANSFORMERS PRIME – ONE SHALL STAND
With UNICRON’s awakening, extreme measures needed to be taken. An unlikely alliance formed between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS to defeat UNICRON, a foe who could spell the end of the Earth. The action unfolds as the AUTOBOTS battle alongside MEGATRON against the evil UNICRON. Enemies became allies, allies became confidantes, and with the Matrix of Leadership, the planet Earth was saved.
Though at immeasurable personal cost, when OPTIMUS surrendered the Matrix, he lost more than the collective wisdom of the PRIME. He lost himself. With the power of the Matrix no longer within him, it would stand to reason that OPTIMUS has reverted to his pre-PRIME state as the historical archivist ORION PAX. MEGATRON manipulates the impaired OPTIMUS into joining the DECEPTICONS. But does the OPTIMUS and AUTOBOTS’ true key to salvation lie in the trusted hands of a teenaged boy named Jack?

My husband grew up watching and playing Transformers. Now that we have kids, he has an excuse to watch Transformerswith them. When he watches the episodes with DD, he always takes the time to answer all of the questions that DD has. Questions like "Who is Optimus Prime?" "What are Transformers?" "What are they doing on Earth?" are not as easy as one would think when you have to explain everything in details to a 6 year old, but I think that my husband secrectly enjoys it. For DD, she mostly likes to watch how the Transformers tranform. When she stares at the TV screen, I could see her trying to figure out how all of the pieces fit togther. This DVD is over 2 hours long and has an interesting story line. This is something that a family could watch and enjoy together for sure.
