On CBN Newswatch, June 23: From public protests to internal opposition: Will GOP health bill survive?, 'It doesn't feel real yet': Hundreds gather to mourn Otto Warmbier, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: AND THANK YOU

FOR JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

SENATE REPUBLICANS

RELEASED THEIR HIGHLY

ANTICIPATED HEALTH CARE

BILL THIS WEEK, BUT AS OF

NOW, THERE IS A LOT OF

UNCERTAINTY WHETHER IT

WILL PASS THE SENATE.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US MORE NOW FROM

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PROTESTORS

TOOK ACTION THE MINUTE

SENATE G.O.P. LEADERSHIP

RELEASED THEIR VERSION OF

THE HEALTH CARE BILL.

[YELLING]

Reporter: OVER 70

DISABLED PEOPLE BLOCKED

MITCHELL McCONNELL'S

OFFICE, FORCING STRONG

OPPOSITION AGAINST

MEDICAID CUTS.

CAPITOL HILL POLICE FIRST

ASKED PEOPLE TO STOP

DEMONSTRATING, AND THEN

BEGAN ARRESTING AND

CARRYING AWAY MANY WHO

REFUSED.

NOT MANY REPUBLICANS HAVE

SUPPORTED THE BILL AS IT

STANDS, BUT THEY SAY IT IS

A START.

IT IS A REALLY GOOD

BEGINNING TO THAT PROCESS,

AND WE NEED TO MOVE

QUICKLY BECAUSE THE

OBAMACARE SYSTEM IS

FAILING AROUND US.

Reporter: THE

PRESSURE IS ON TO GET A

REPEAL AND REPLACE BILL

PASSED AS A GROWING NUMBER

OF INSURANCE COMPANIES

ANNOUNCE PLANS TO PULL OUT

OF OBAMACARE.

SOME COUNTIES WILL HAVE

ZERO HEALTH CARE OPTIONS

IN THE OBAMACARE MARKETS

NEXT YEAR.

OBAMACARE IS A DIRECT

ATTACK ON THE MIDDLE

CLASS, AND AMERICAN

FAMILIES DESERVE BETTER

THAN ITS FAILING STATUS

QUO.

Reporter: IN ADDITION

TO MEDICAID CUTS, THE

BILL'S FIRST DRAFT

INCLUDES ENDING

OBAMACARE'S PENALTIES FOR

INDIVIDUALS WHO DO NOT

ENROLL IN A HEALTH CARE

PLAN, AND DEFUNDING

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

IT DIFFERS FROM THE HOUSE

VERSIONS.

THE MEASURE ALSO DOES AWAY

WITH WAIVERS THAT WOULD

ALLOW INSURANCE COMPANIES

TO RAISE PREMIUMS ON

PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING

CONDITIONS.

DEMOCRATS ARE OPPOSED TO

WHAT SENATOR MARK WARNER

SAYS SHOULDN'T EVEN BE

REFERRED TO AS A HEALTH

CARE BILL.

YOU HAVE ONE SIDE

SAYING REPEAL, AND ONE

SIDE SAYING DON'T SAY A

WORD.

AND NOW IT APPEARS IT IS

MORE ABOUT TRYING TO SAY

THEY REPEALED OBAMACARE

THAN ACTUALLY FIX HEALTH

CARE.

I THINK THAT IS

DISAPPOINTING.

Reporter: WARNER TOLD

CBN HE WANTS TO SEE BOTH

PARTIES COME TOGETHER TO

FIX HEALTH CARE.

I THINK A NUMBER OF MY

REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES AT

LEAST PRIVATELY AGREE.

THEY SAW WHEN THE

DEMOCRATS TRIED TO WRITE A

BIG HEALTH CARE BILL, IT

DIDN'T END UP BEING A GOOD

POLICY, AND THE SAME IF

THEY TRY TO DO IT WITH

JUST REPUBLICANS.

Reporter: SENATE

REPUBLICANS CAN ONLY

AFFORD TWO VOTES AGAINST

IT, AND THERE ARE ALREADY

MORE THAN THAT.

RAND PAUL, MIKE LEE, TED

CRUZ, AND RON JOHNSON,

RELEASED A STATEMENT

SAYING THEY ARE NOT READY

TO VOTE FOR THE BILL BUT

ARE OPEN FOR NEGOTIATON.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED HE

IS VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THE

SENATE HEALTH CARE BILL

AND LOOKS FORWARD TO

MAKING IT REALLY SPECIAL.

President Trump: WE

WILL HOPEFULLY GET

SOMETHING DONE, AND IT

WILL BE SOMETHING WITH

HEART AND VERY MEANINGFUL.

Reporter: SENATE

G.O.P. LEADERS HOPE TO

BRING THE MEASURE TO THE

FLOOR FOR A VOTE BEFORE

THE JULY 4th RECESS.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE PRESIDENT

HAS ENDED A MONTH-LONG

GUESSING GAME OVER WHETHER

HE RECORDED HIS PRIVATE

CONVERSATIONS WITH FORMER

F.B.I. DIRECTOR JAMES

COMEY.

THE PRESIDENT TWEETED: "I

DID NOT MAKE AND DO NOT

HAVE ANY SUCH RECORDINGS."

BUT HE ALSO ACKNOWLEDGED

OTHERS COULD HAVE MADE

TAPES WITHOUT HIS

KNOWLEDGE.

THE PRESIDENT FIRED COMEY

IN MAY, WHO WAS HEAD OF AN

INVESTIGATION INTO TRUMP

COMPAIGNS TIES WITH

RELATION.

HE SAID THE PRESIDENT DID

NOT ASK HIM TO END IT.

> A TEMPORARY REPRIEVE

FOR SOME 100 IRAQI

CHRISTIANS IN DETROIT.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS HALTED

DEPORTATION FOR TWO WEEKS.

THE U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE

SAID THAT WILL GIVE HIM

TIME TO DECIDE IF HIS

COURT HAS JURISDICTION TO

HEAR THE CASE.

U.S. IMMIGRATION AND

CUSTOMS ARRESTED THE

IRAQIS EARLIER THIS

MONTHTH SAIMONTHAND SAID ALL HAVE CRIMINAL

CONVICTIONS.

BUT THEY SAY THEIR LIVES

ARE IN DANGER IF THEY

RETURN TO IRAQ.

WE'RE CHRISTIANS.

YOU'RE THROWING US INTO A

DEATH TRAP.

WE HAVE NO FAMILY THERE

TO HELP HIM.

WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO,

SEND HIM TO BE CRUCIFIED?

THEY CAN'T DO THAT.

Efrem: IRAQ RECENTLY

AGREED TO RECEIVE IRAQI

NATIONALS WHO ARE U.S.

DEPORTS.

THE U.S. JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT SAYS THE

DETAINEES MUST GO TO

IMMIGRATION COURT TO TRY

TO REMAIN IN THE U.S., BUT

THE ACLU SAYS THEY MIGHT

BE DEPORTED BEFORE THEIR

CASE IS HEARD.

IT WANTS THE FEDERAL COURT

TO HEAR THE CASE.

> HURRICANE CINDY, NOW A

TROPICATROPICAL DEPRESSION DID

SOME MAJOR DAMAGE TO

SEVERAL BUSINESSES, AND AT

LEAST FOUR PEOPLE ARE

HURT.

THE TORNADO HAD WIND

SPEEDS OF UP TO 135 MILES

PER HOUR.

IT JUST HIT HERE IN

FAIRFIELD.

IT WAS BIG, GUYS, REALLY

BIG.

Efrem: THE NATIONAL

HURRICANE CENTER SAYS THE

STORM COULD BRING UP TO

15 INCHES OF RAIN IN SOME

PLACES THROUGH FRIDAY

MORNING.

IT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE

INTO TENNESSEE LATE

FRIDAY.

> NORTH KOREA DENIES

TORTURING THE AMERICAN

STUDENT WHO DIED THIS WEEK

AFTER BEING HELD IN THE

COUNTRY FOR MORE THAN A

YEAR.

OTTO WARMBIER WAS RELEASED

FROM A NORTH KOREAN PRISON

IN A COMA.

HE DIED DAYS LATER.

HIS FAMILY BLAMES NORTH

KOREA FOR HIS CONDITION.

IN AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED BY

THE KOREAN CENTRAL NEWS

AGENCY, NORTH KOREA

INSISTS THEY TREATED HIM

ACCORDING TO INTERNATIONAL

STANDARDS, AND SAYS THE

COUNTRY IS, QUOTE, "THE

BIGGEST VICTIM IN THE

DEATH OF OTTO WARMBIER."

HIS FAMILY IS NOT WANT AN

AUTOPSY.

ON THURSDAY MORNING, HIS

HOME TOWN MOURNED AND

BURIED HIM.

ERIC GONZALES HAS MORE ON

HIS FUNERAL AND THE UNITED

STATES ATTEMPT TO PUT MORE

PRESSURE ON CHINA TO REIN

IN THE NORTHERN KOREAN

DICTATOR.

Reporter: A COMMUNITY

REMEMBERING ONE OF THEIR

OWN, AN AMERICAN COLLEGE

STUDENT KEPT IN A NORTH

KOREAN PRISON FOR 17

MONTHS.

THE FUNERAL SERVICE WAS

HELD IN OTTO WARMBIER'S

HIGH SCHOOL IN OHIO, WHERE

HE SERVED AS SALUTETORIAN

IN HIS CLASS.

AS A GROUP, WE'RE

STRONGER THAN ANYTHING

RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: THE DREAMS

OF A YOUNG MAN DESTROYED

BY DUBIOUS CHARGES FROM A

RUTHLESS REGIME.

WILL YOU SAVE MY LIFE?

WILL YOU THINK OF MY

FAMILY?

Reporter: NO MEDIA

WERE ALLOWED INSIDE THE

WYOMING HIGH SCHOOL GYM,

BUT HIS PARENTS RELEASED

THESE PHOTOS: PRECIOUS

MEMORIES OF THEIR LATE

SON, HIS PHONE, PASSPORT,

NOTEBOOK, EVEN THE BLAZER

HE WORE DURING HIS TRIP TO

NORTH KOREA.

PRESIDENT TRUMP DID NOT

ATTEND THE FUNERAL, BUT

BLASTED HIS DEATH AS A,

QUOTE, "DISGRACE."

THE MOST ACUTE THREAT

IN THE REGION TODAY IS

POSED BY THE DPRK.

WE BOTH CALL FOR COMPLETE,

VERIFIABLE, AND

IRREVERSIBLE

DENUCLEARIZATION OF THE

KOREAN PENINSULA.

CHINA'S END STATE ON

THE KOREAN PENINSULA IN

TERMS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS

IS THE SAME AS OURS.

Reporter: AS THE

UNITED STATES URGES CHINA

TO EXERT GREAT PRESSURE ON

NORTH KOREA, U.S. SPY

SATELLITES HAVE DETECTED

NEW ACTIVITY AROUND THE

REGIME'S NUCLEAR TEST

SITE, LIVING TO

SPECULATION PYONGYANG MAY

BE GETTING READY TO

CONDUCT YET ANOTHER ROUND

OF MISSILE TESTS.

ERIC GONZALES, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD

HERE ON CBN "NEWSWATCH,"

HE WAS A PARATROOPER WHO

CAPTURED THE OLD CITY, AND

THEN LATER THE C.E.O. WHO

BUILT A MODERN NATION.

SCOTT ROSS SITS DOWN WITH

ISRAELI HERO ARIK ACHMON.

Efrem: ARIK ACHMON IS

ONE OF ISRAEL'S HEROS IN

THE SIX-DAY WAR, WHO'S

BEEN SEEN IN OUR CBN FILM

"IN OUR HANDS: THE BATTLE

FOR JERUSALEM."

BUT HIS CONTRIBUTIONS TO

HIS COUNTRY DIDN'T STOP

THERE.

AFTER THE WAR, HE ALSO

PLAYED A HUGE ROLE IN

HELPING ISRAEL DEVELOP ITS

MODERN ECONOMY.

SCOTT ROSS BRINGS US THIS

REMARKABLE STORY.

Scott: ARIK ACHMON

WAS THE CHIEF INTELLIGENCE

OFFICER FOR THE 55th

PARATROOPER BRIGADE,

DURING THE SIX-DAY WAR.

I HAVE EXACTLY SIX

HOURS TO PREPARE A UNIT TO

WAR.

USUALLY TO MAKE OUR

OPERATION IN JERUSALEM,

YOU NEED ABOUT 40 HOURS.

IT IS CRAZINESS FOR AN

INTELLIGENCE OFFICER TO

EVER REACH THAT IN 10

HOURS.

Reporter: AS ONE OF

THE SOLDIERS WHO REUNITED

JERUSALEM, ACHMON WAS

HONORED AT THE JERUSALEM

PREMIERE OF THE CBN

DOCUDRAMA, "IN OUR HANDS:

THE BATTLE FOR JERUSALEM."

I TALKED WITH ACHMON AT

HIS TEL AVIV HOME ABOUT

THE WAR AND HIS LIFE.

WHEN YOU ENTERED THE

STATISTIC FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN A MILLENNIUM, HOW

DID THAT FEEL FOR YOU?

THAT WAS AN ABSOLUTE

HISTORIC MOMENT.

I WAS VERY BUSY.

IT WAS AFTER THREE DAYS OF

VERY, VERY HARD FIGHT.

BASICALLY I DON'T THINK

ABOUT HISTORY; I THINK

ABOUT DOING OUR JOB.

BUT I MUST TELL YOU WHEN

WHEN THE COMMANDING UNIT

OF THE BRIGADE CAME TO THE

MOUNT, THAT WAS THE FIRST

TIME THAT I FELT THAT I

HAD PARTICIPATED IN

SOMETHING SPECIAL.

BUT TO SAY THE TRUTH, I

WAS VERY SAD.

Scott: WHY?

BECAUSE 95 OF OUR

COMRADES WERE DEAD IN THIS

FIGHT.

THE MIXTURE OF THESE TWO

FEELINGS IS WITH ME UNTIL

TODAY.

Scott: AND THAT WAS

ONLY THE BEGINNING OF

ACHMON'S CONTRIBUTION TO

ISRAEL.

ARIK ACHMON, WHO WAS

ONE OF THE FIRST ISRAELI

PAPARATROOPERS INTO THE

CITY, AND LED THE CROSSING

OF THE SUEZ CANAL IN 1973.

Scott: HE WROTE ABOUT

ACHMON AND HIS SIX-DAY WAR

BOOK "LIKE DREAMERS."

HE TOLD ME HOW ACHMON

PLAYED THE ROLE OF HERO

MORE THAN ONCE.

YOU TOOK ABOUT THE

TRANSFORMATION OF ISRAEL

TO A HIGH-TECH SUPER

POWER, AND ARIK ACHMON

STARTS OFF AS A LITTLE BOY

IN A KIBBUTZ.

HE LEAVES THE KIBBUTZ AND

ENDS UP BECOMING THE

C.E.O. OF ISRAEL'S

DOMESTIC AIRLINES.

ISRAEL'S ECONOMY WAS

SOCIALIST IN THOSE YEARS.

HE FIGHTS THE TRADE

UNIONS, AND HE CREATES THE

FIRST PRIVATIZED COMPANY

IN THE STATE OF ISRAEL AND

OPENS THE WAY TO THE

HIGH-TECH FREE ECONOMY

THAT WE HAVE TODAY.

SO FOR ME ARIK ACHMON IS A

MULTIPLE HERO.

Scott: WHILE ACHMON

LEFT THE KIBBUTZ AT AGE

40, HE NEVER FORGOT WHAT

HE LEARNED THERE.

I THINK THE KIBBUTZIUM

BUILT ISRAEL.

Scott: WHERE DID YOU

GET THE VISION TO DEVELOP

BEYOND JUST A SOCIALIST

IDEA?

MY VALUE IS STILL THERE

IN THE KIBBUTZ.

I BELIEVE IN FREE ECONOMY

THAT MINGLES WITH SOCIAL

RESPONSIBILITY.

IT IS A VERY, VERY

IMPORTANT THING.

THE VALUES ARE MORE

IMPORTANT THAN MANY.

Scott: IF THE ECONOMY

HADN'T CHANGED TO A FREE

ECONOMY, DO YOU THINK THAT

ISRAEL WOULD HAVE

SURVIVED?

I THINK THAT THE

ISRAELI ECONOMY IS A

MIRACLE.

IN SUCH EXTREME

CIRCUMSTANCES, TO BE ONE

OF THE LEADING ECONOMIES

IN THE WORLD.

Scott: FOR ACHMON,

EVEN WITH ISRAEL'S GREAT

DEVELOPMENT, HE IS

TROUBLED BY DIVISIONS

AMONG HIS PEOPLE.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR ENEMIES

WHO DON'T THINK YOU HAVE A

RIGHT TO EXIST?

THE ENEMIES IS ENEMIES.

WE'RE STRONG ENOUGH.

THE ENEMY OF ISRAEL IS IN

US, INSIDE US, NOT

OUTSIDE.

Scott: THE FUTURE FOR

THIS COUNTRY NOW -- YOU

WERE A MAN OF VISION,

YOU'VE BEEN A MAN OF

VISION, AND WHAT'S YOUR

VISION FOR ISRAEL NOW?

I BELIEVE IN THE

ETERNITY OF THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

WE HAVE TO GET OVER THIS

CONFLICT.

I'M NOT SURE THAT I WILL

LIVE UNTIL THIS DAY, BUT I

BELIEVE IN IT.

WE WILL OVERCOME.

Scott: SCOTT ROSS FOR

CBN NEWS IN TEL AVIV.

Efrem: UP NEXT,

FIGHTING FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLY

ENTERTAINMENT, HEAR WHY

SONY IS SHUTTING DOWN A

MOVE THAT WOULD HAVE

PROVIDED CLEANER VERSIONS

OF ITS FILM.

Efrem: THE FIGHT TO

FILTER FILMS FOR PROFANITY

AND CREDIBL QUESTIONABLE CONTENT

IS HEATING UP.

SONY ANNOUNCED PLANS FOR

THE CLEAN VERSION

INITIATIVE.

THEY PROVIDED IT ON

STREAMING SERVICE LIKE

VOO-DOO AND iTUNES.

A GROUP TOOK ISSUE WITH

IT, AND SONY SHUT DOWN THE

SERVICE.

JOINING ME IS MOVIE GUIDE

DIRECTOR TED BAER.

WHY PETITION SONY'S MOVE?

WE'RE PETITIONING

BECAUSE ALL OF THE PEOPLE

OUT THERE CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

THIS IS A POSITIVE

PETITION.

WE JUST WANT SONY TO MAKE

MORE MONEY BY STREAMING

TWO VERSIONS OF

"SPIDERMAN" WHICH IS A

GOOD FILM.

ONE VERSION WITHOUT THE

TWO OR THREE "F" WORDS,

AND THE OTHER VERSION THEY

CAN DO WHAT THEY WANT.

I WOULD PREFER THAT NONE

OF THEM HAVE IT, BUT I'VE

BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY FOR

71 YEARS, AND I DON'T

THINK THEY NEED IT.

Efrem: WE ARE SEEING

THE BATTLE PLAY OUT WITH

VID ANGEL.

WHY ARE FILM-MAKERS TAKING

ISSUE WITH THE CLEANER

VERSIONS OF THEIR MOVIE?

THE HEAD DIRECTOR AND

THE WRITERS ARE SAYING

THERE ARE 1800 PEOPLE YOU

HAVE TO DEAL WITH ON A

FILM, AND THEY THINK

THEY'RE ARTISTS.

ON ONE HAND PEOPLE THINK

THEY'RE ARTISTS -- AND WE

KNOW, IF YOU'RE DURING

THIS INTERVIEW, YOU'RE AN

ARTIST -- AND ON THE OTHER

HAND, THE STUDIO THINKS

WE'RE MAKING MONEY.

AND THE ENTERTAINMENT

INDUSTRY IS NOT THE

ENTERTAINMENT ART.

SO THERE IS A DIVISION

BETWEEN THE DESIRES OF THE

STUDIOS AND THE ARTISTS.

AND VID ANGEL ACTUALLY IS

PROBABLY FORCING THE

ISSUE.

BY DOING WHAT THEY'RE

DOING, THEY'RE PROBABLY

DRIVING NOT JUST SONY, BUT

EVERYBODY ELSE, TO

CONSIDER HOW CAN WE

COUNTER MAN WHAT VID ANGEL

IS DOING BECAUSE VID ANGEL

IS RELYING ON ESTABLISHED

LAW.

Efrem: WHAT DO YOU

SAY IN TERMS OF MY RIGHT

AS A CONSUMER TO WATCH A

FILM THE WAY I CHOOSE TO

IF I'M GOING TO PURCHASE

IT?

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THE

GOVERNMENT HAS SAID

SEVERAL DIFFERENT TIMES.

IN THE FIRST TIME, IT WAS

A SONY PICTURE CASE, AND

SONY SAID ONCE YOU BUY A

VIDEO, THEY STILL HAD THE

RIGHTS TO CONTROL WHAT YOU

DID TO IT.

THE SUPREME COURT DECIDED

ONCE YOU BUY A VIDEO, YOU

CAN USE IT TO PUT YOUR

COFFEE CUP ON, YOU CAN USE

IT TO, YOU KNOW, PUT YOUR

PLANTS ON IT.

IT'S YOURS.

ONCE YOU BOUGHT IT, IT WAS

YOURS.

THAT WAS THE ESTABLISHED

LAW.

AND THAT'S THE LAW THAT

SEVERAL GROUPS HAVE USED

TO TRY TO CLEAN THEM UP.

THEY SAY, YOU BUY IT, YOU

CLEAN IT UP ACCORDING TO

YOUR SPECIFICATIONS, AND

THEN IT IS YOURS.

AND THEN YOU SELL IT BACK

TO US.

SO THAT'S BEEN THE THEORY

WORKING OFF THE SONY

PICTURE CASE.

YOU'RE THE CONSUMER.

ONCE YOU'VE BOUGHT YOUR

HOUSE -- WE'VE ENCROACHED

ON THAT IN ALMOST EVERY

OTHER FIELD, SO AS AN

ATTORNEY ONCE UPON A TIME,

IT IS INCREDIBLY

DISTURBING.

BUT THE OWNERSHIP ISSUE

HAS COME INTO QUESTION

HERE.

Efrem: REAL QUICK,

WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS

MEANS FOR SONY'S BOTTOM

LINE, THIS MOVE TO BACK

AWAY FROM THE CLEANER

VERSION.

YOU HAVE TO SAY LIKE

MARK TWAIN THAT THE

EVIDENCE OF MY DEMISE IS

WRONG.

BECAUSE THIS IS NOT GOING

TO GO AWAY.

THE STUDIOS NEED THOSE

INCOME STREAMS.

I THINK IT IS NOT GOING TO

COME UP UNTIL THE UNIONS

START TO GET A LITTLE BIT

MORE OPEN TO IT.

BUT I THINK YOU'RE GOING

TO SEE SOME CRACKS IN ALL

OF THE TRADE UNIONS ABOUT

THIS.

I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO

SEE SOME CHANGES.

AND I'M NOT SURE IT IS ALL

OVER UNTIL THE FAT LADY

SINGS, AND I DON'T EVEN

KNOW WHO SHE IS.

Efrem: DR. BAER,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

TIME AND THE WORK THAT

MOVIE GOOD IS DOING.

MUCH APPRECIATE IT.

HAVE A GREAT DAY.

Efrem: LOOKING FOR

SOME FAMILY-FRIENDLY

ENTERTAINMENT THIS

WEEKEND?

WE'VE GOT A HELPFUL MOVIE

REVIEW FROM OUR FRIENDS AT

"PLUGGED IN."

THIS WEEK THEY CHECK OUT

"TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST

NIGHT."

100 SEXTILLION VANITIES

IN THE COSMOS.

THESE ARE TROUBLED

TIMES.

Reporter: BUT THERE

IS NO TIME TO RELY ON TO

DEFEND HUMANS THIS GO

AROUND.

IN FACT, THAT ROBO HERO

HAS BEEN TURNED TO THE BAD

SIDE.

INSTEAD, HUMANKIND NEEDS

TO LOOK TO SOME HIDDEN

HISTORY OF TRANSFORMERS TO

FIND A CLUE FOR SALVATION.

THE JUNK YARD OWNER MUST

JOIN FORCES WITH AN

ELDERLY ENGLISH LORD, A

PRETTY OXFORD PROFESSOR

AND SOME OTHERS.

AND TOGETHER THIS UNLIKELY

TEAM MAY BE ABLE TO FIND

THE FORT TIE FORTITUDE AND THE

RIGHT SUPER WEAPONS THEY

NEED.

THEY'RE FAMOUS FOR TONS OF

FRENETIC ACTION.

THIS FIFTH TRANSFORMER

FLICK SOMEHOW KICKS THAT

FORMULA UP ANOTHER NOTCH,

BUT THERE ARE EXPLOSIVE

IMAGES AND SURPRISINGLY

FOUL LANGUAGE.

THERE ARE TWO AND A HALF

HOURS OF FRENZY WAR IN A

MOVIE THAT NEVER QUITE

TRANSFORMS ITSELF.

I'M GIVING IT A MERE TWO

RIPPED OFF ROBO HEADS OUT

OF FIVE FOR FAMIL FAMILY

FRIENDLINESS.

Efrem: ALL RIGHT.

WELL, IT IS TIME FOR YOUR

FRIDAY FAITHFUL.

I PRAY THIS MESSAGE WILL

BLESS YOUR DAY AND THE

WEEKEND THAT LIES AHEAD.

REMEMBER THIS: GOD HAS

GIVEN YOU THE MEASURE OF

GRACE TO SUSTAIN YOU

THROUGH ANY JOY, PAIN, OR

CHALLENGE YOU FACE.

SIMPLY DO NOT LET THE

CIRCUMSTANCE BLIND YOU

FROM SEEING THE PROMISE.

WITH THAT WORD, MAKE SURE

TO MAKE THIS A FABULOUS

FRIDAY AND A WONDERFUL

WEEKEND.
