Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The genre of "films" known euphemistically as the mockbuster -- which has included such straight-to-video howlers as Snakes on a Train and Alien vs. Hunter -- gets one of its most hilariously shameless entries with Transmorphers: Fall of Man. Timed to hit video stores right around the theatrical release of Michael Bay's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Transmorphers: Fall of Man is the sequel to Transmorphers -- which itself was timed to hit video stores right around the release of Bay's Transformers. Since the whole idea behind a mockbuster is to bait-and-switch confused video store patrons, not much should be expected from what's inside the semi-decent-looking packaging. And true enough, Scott Wheeler's film, by being relentlessly disappointing, doesn't disappoint. There was no budget to do much of anything, which is why a momentous occasion like the supposed fall of mankind takes place exclusively within a ten-mile radius of the Bakersfield desert. The actual transmorphers, who spend almost their entire existence in robot form, are herky-jerky and D-grade. Even the actor playing the main character, Shane Van Dyke, has a D-grade, straight-to-video name. (Though top billing goes to Bruce Boxleitner, the erstwhile Scarecrow to Kate Jackson's Mrs. King.) But comparing either Transmorphers to either Transformers misses the point -- it's kind of like comparing hardcore porn to the cinematic eroticism of the films of Adrian Lyne. And for what it is, Fall of Man is not as bad as it could have been. The acting is generally competent, even the aforementioned Mr. Van Dyke. But to delve into any further specifics would also be giving too much validation to this nakedly opportunistic contraption.
