: Action and violence don't overshadow good messages for kids. Age

: * * * * What Parents Should Know
: Parents need to know that violence is the main concern in this latest addition to the Transformers franchise. Clashes between the Decepticons and the Autobots are explosive and include gunfire, crashes, and dismemberment (of robots, that is), and a few humans are involved enough that their lives are in danger. A main character dies early in the series, and the loss of their teammate motivates the Autobots even more. Expect kids’ interest in the show to encourage their desire for the multitude of products that also sport the Transformers name. That said, as action series go, there's a fair amount of positive content here related to the Autobots’ unselfish willingness to put themselves in harm’s way to protect humankind. - Common Sense Media
