Transformers Fan Film Adds Slavic Flavor to Cybertron Civil War

Despite what certain blockbuster movies would have you believe, it wasn't just the US that was visited by giant, transforming robots.

The last Transformers movie cost around $200 million to make, and while Alexander Semenov's short film doesn't have anywhere near the same budget, it's still pretty remarkable. The premise of the film is pretty simple: A pair of bare-chested Russian rivals battle each other with the aid of their Transformer allies. There's a bit of a twist in the tale that I don't want to spoil, but I will say that hearing a Transformer speaking in Russian is very cool.

According to the film's Vimeo description, the live action part was shot in just two hours, and then it took a further month to add in the computer effects. The effects are very impressive, especially considering this was a fan project made with minimal equipment. It's only a few minutes long, so it doesn't require a huge investment of time to watch it, but it contains some unauthorized audio however, so it might not be around forever. Watch it while you can.
