WEEKEND PIC June 29 - July 1
1. TRANSFORMERS (sci-fi action with Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Jon Voight and Megan Fox) Rated: * * * (out of 4): It's 'Bayhem' time and those who grew up on Transformers toys and the TV series would definitely relive their fantasies in this testosterone-fueled actioner that also transforms from one genre to another.
2. SURF'S UP (animated comedy with voices of Shia LaBeouf, Jeff Bridges, Zooey Deschanel and Jon Heder) Rated * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): Masquerading as a 'mockumentary', this story about a young penguin's quest to be champion surfer offers a few laughs and references to real-life celebs. But not enough oomph, though.
4. ALONE (Thai horror thriller with Masha Wattanapanich, Namo Tongkumnerd, Vittaya Wasukraipaisan and Ratchanoo Bunchootwong) Rated * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): We get the requisite jolts and plot twists in this mystery about a separated Siamese twin haunted by her past. Okay if you don't expect too much.
