This has to be fake - scenes could easily have been taken from other badly made movies - the digital shots look like they were done by a 12 year old with a Video Toaster (no offense to past Toaster users).
Looks like the quality of much of what is produced for Syfy movies - bad acting, bad writing, bad effects, lost of closeup shots to avoid building big sets, plenty of extras from Central Casting, and about the dumbest plot ever - with that description I'l bet Syfy producers are salivating.
There was talk a few years ago about making an actual Titanic 2 ship, but Queen Mary 2 in reality is a better idea.
Haha, no Stephen, I have not seen Transmorphers. It may blow my mind a little too much... I don't think I can handle it.
But Mike, I assure you this is real. And it's not just stuff shot to only make a funny trailer either. This is from Asylum Films, a wonderful little film studio that produces cheap knock-offs and sequels to popular movies, but they don't make them spoofs, they attempt to be serious!
Here are some other classics they've made in the last 5 years (100% serious here):
Snakes on a Train
Pirates of Treasure Island
The DaVinci Treasure
AVH: Alien vs. Hunter
The Day the Earth Stopped
and my personal favorite... Allen Quatermain and the Temple of Skulls
I've never seen any of these, but the fact they exist amuses/disturbs me. From what I read though, apparently none of them are even so bad they're funny, they are just boring.
All of those movies listed including Transmorphers and Transmorphers 2 are available on Netflicks. A matter of fact, Transmorphers can be streamed. I think some one ( Not me) needs to watch one of these dandies and report back on their viewing experience.
I just watched a few minutes of Transmorphers on Netflix.
Wow, I won't criticize a mainstream movie again - The Asylum Studios sets a new standard of badness. The Laser Cats skits from SNL are just about equal as far as egregious over-acting, but these actors play it serious as mentioned earlier in this thread. This movie makes so many bad movies seem less bad.
