Transformers 3 feels thrown all over the place, and I was wondering throughout the whole movie: 'What is going on?'. I don't care about the effects, which are breathtaking (especially in 3D), cause it hadn't brought me any satisfaction. Where is the plot, people? Cause that's all that I care about. The script was terrible, made for kids. When the movie was over I've felt tired and mad at myself cause I was dragged into this mess. I have to admit that It's a little better than the last one, but that doesn't mean it's good. It's dreadful. It's cheesy. Next time, (if there's going to be a next time) just give more money to the writers to develop a better script. This one falls flat. Expand

The Worst Film of 2011, just behind of "Abduction" and "The Human Centipide II (Full Sequence)", is visually ugly, and worst and worst and worst! I wait that Transformers IV never exist.

Worst film I've ever seen. The first movie I can recall that I haven't been able to finish. It truly is that bad, no characterization, plot, emotion. Truly a mess.

But I cannot because there is too much of the film that is just BAD! Essentially everything that held the second film back holds this film back as well. Horrendous dialogue, useless characters, annoying characters, preposterous plot, lame attempts of humor...it was just not very entertaining. The action in this film is pretty AMAZING! I was so entertained by the second part. The effects, sounds, explosions, music was all perfect. Michael Bay is definitely a master of awesome action. But in-your-face nonstop action is not enough for a good film. Expand

It may be better than Transformers 2, but Dark of the Moon is still a sloppy loud train wreck. You would think replacing Megan Fox would help improve the acting, but it may have gotten worse.

A lot of people say that "Dark of the Moon" is better than "Revenge of the Fallen", which isn't saying much, but I think it's actually worse than the previous film.

The film is long, bloated, obnoxious, annoying and damn right bland. Shia LaBeouf returns as the main "hero" Sam Witwicky, and this time he has a new girlfriend, Carly, who is played by British model, Rosie Hungington Whitley...that's right, Model, not actress. This just goes to show that director Michael Bay only cares for young, attractive women who have to look good instead of act good. The problem is that these two actors have no chemistry whatsoever.

A girl who seems unrealistically calm like Carly, what is she doing sticking around with someone who is loud and not-so-courageous like Sam? I'll tell you why...because the screenplay says so.

There are some really tasteless and unfunny moments that involve Ken Jeong, such as the scene where he takes Shia LaBeouf's character to a workplace bathroom and constantly says "Deep Wang" numerous times. Does Michael Bay honestly think this is funny? This is supposed to be an action film not a comedy film, then again, if it was a comedy film, it isn't very funny.

Humor in action films are supposed to be subtle and occur when the film gets a little too serious, but I honestly cannot remember a single actor taking any of these events seriously.

'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' is worse than "Revenge of the Fallen", after watching the film for about an hour and a half, I was already done, but clearly Michael Bay hadn't finished yet and he had to rinse the film for another hour too long.

Firstly, this movie was structured oddly. For the first hour, the movie felt fine, having action scenes separated by a few scenes of dialogue. It felt nice until the Chicago sequence. This scene took the 90 minutes left of the movie, consisting entirely of every single step these guys had to do to defeat the Decepticons and it felt like a chore to watch it as it just kept going on and on. There wasn't any character development in this section too, just non-stop action. This would be fine if the characters had developed before the scene, but rather are left on a climax and magically end up being developed in the end. The computer graphics looked fine, and it wasn't too impressive since it was done equally well in the past two movies. As for the actors, they didn't really play too well. It wasn't really stand out for me. The dialogue mostly killed the acting for me, because it felt like the actors were doing a mediocre job when really it was just the scripting that's making them suffer. And finally, I watched this movie in 3D, and I can say that it didn't stand out once to me. None of the action felt any better or worse, and it just ended up being unnecessary. I couldn't really tell if anything came out of the screen. Overall, this movie is below average. It is plentiful of action, but if you wanted anything other than that, you're better off seeing another movie. Expand

At times outright ignoring elements established in the first two movies- just don't think about it too much. The new lead actress is a Victoria's Secret model with no acting experience, so we're not subtle about the whole "style over substance" concept. But most viewers only care about one thing only: Giant Robots Fighting. And this delivers in that area. Bay now uses "bullet time" to make it clear which robot is fighting which, so he is learning, and you will walk out with your Giant Robot Fighting desire satisfied. A popcorn flick that delivers mindless but fun, but if you're looking for the 2011 version of "Inception," this 'aint it. Expand

When I saw that movie I saw it for what it was. An awesome visual eye-candy fest, and that's what the Transformers movies are; films that are fun for how great they look, and I actually felt that that was lacking here. Yes the last forty five minutes are ridiculous and crazy, but that's pretty much it, aside from the Chernobyl bit. What we got was basically an hour and a half of Shia Laboeuf looking for a job, then forty five minutes of robots kicking ass. What I wanted to do was forgot about anything that resembled a plot, and just immerse myself in the VISUAL genius of Michael Bay, but I couldn't because there is just some awful butchering of cinema culture by the screenplay and story. For example I can't focus Shia Laboeuf being swung around holding onto a wire latched onto the eye of a massive decepticon in a flurry of wildly unrealistic, dumb fun, because my mind keeps on going back to the worthlessness of John Malkovich's
role in the movie. Lot's of people say that Michael Bay is a bad director, but when they see his films their complaint is usually the plot and script, but what you have to keep in mind is that he doesn't write his films. Ehren Kruger (the writer of scream 3(an abomination)) wrote this not him. There was actually decent directing in this film but it was ruined by that horrible script.

HELL NO! this is micheal bay we are talkin about . his method is well if it must be that the special effect and action sceanes arnt cool enough. so i must improve that. so what we are left with is pretty much the same lame plot from TF2 decepticons find a wepon to destroy earth and god knows why that stuttering prick shilo boof has to save us all . so most of the movie is focused on Sam whining and complaining how he wants to live a normal life and that no one appriates all that he's done for us blah blah freekin blah. yeah its not like the movie goers dont wana know more about the transformers themselves out side of them just being dragged out to beat the living hell out of each other... noooo we need more shilo . megan fox is now gone and this new girl is brought in cant remember her name and with her god awful acting its unlikely we will see her in much more movies. shes some model who couldnt act well enough to get in a sci fi B movie but apperntly Bay thought she was hot even though her face looks like some one took a metal rake over it for a few days . not to sound shallow or any thing i could have cared less how she looked if her acting was passable like megan foxes was ... maybe thats giving fox to much praise but she wasnt horrable like this girl is thats for sure. in the end if you wana see a mindless action flick with no redeeming qaulitys but its action . you will probubly like this film . if not stay far far far away. i unfortunitly got dragged to this mess cause my 13 year old nephew wanted to see it and begged me .

The transformers all look virtually identical at the speed the action is happening, and several times I could sense a shot that was supposed to be jaw dropping was utterly lost on me and my friends- who looked at each and mouthed "what?". Some movies have comedic relief characters and/or lines of dialogue. This film is comprised entirely of those lines and characters. This is the kind of film where the more you talk about it- the more you realize how angry you are at it Expand

Some movies you have to watch it in 3D and only in 3D like "Avatar" but unfortunately "Transformers: Dark Of the Moon" does not go in this category. It just didn't have that extra WOW factor. 3D felt more like an after thought. The Plot: The lead human character, "Sam Witwicky" seemed more like a desperate 40 year old virgin then a hero who saved the world TWICE. He was more concerned with saving a girl which is just met then actually saving the world. Poor guy... it seemed like he was still recovering from his break up with Megan Fox Oops meant to say Mikaela Banes. By the way the new girl has nothing on Megan Fox. Too bad Katy Perry isn't much into acting (yet), she would had made a wonderful replacement for Megan Fox. The movie ran for 2 hours and 37 minutes but it felt like it ran for 5 hours. This movie could not end fast enough for me. This movie was not all bad. The action was what you expected of a Transformer's movie. I like how they incorporated the lunar landings into the mix and the gamer in me liked the 3rd person shooter bit they had towards the end of the movie. We NEED fresh eyes and fresh minds for the 4th installment (if there is one) Expand

This movie depicts very anthropomorphics characters ripping each other to pieces in a very sadistic way. Transformers are very humanlike, they are at least as intelligent, like we, they talk, feel emotions, they even bleed like humans. And they seem to enjoy ripping each other's limbs, crushing heads and internal organs. And many people are taking children to watch this movie. How evil can you be, Michael Bay? Expand

For the most part, the robots stand around and do nothing until the final 30 minutes of this 2 1/2 hour long film.

I laughed at the film, but only because it was so terrible. Shia LaBeufs' character just comes off as a complete ass in this one instead of a quirky outcast. What a wasted trilogy. Several hundred million dollars of some of the worst film making in years.

You have the Nemesis and the Ark as mere mentions in this hideous failure i hope is the last in a trilogy that went from good to okay to crap. Although 2 wasn't so bad compared to this. Notice also recycled footage from other Michael Bay movies (The Island anyone?) and all the cars are craptacular GM bailoutmobiles. There was 3 minutes of cool fighting between the hour or so of chatting robots and whiny humans yakking about customs at the airport when the autobots brought a teleportation device. The most disappointing end to a trilogy since the Matrix. Expand

I only watched it because I happened to be in DC last fall when they shot the movie. It was quite impressive to see thousands of people lined up along Pennsylvania Avenue, which was shut down almost entirely, and to see the Lincoln Memorial lit up like a supernova, in the middle of the night. I had a feeling back then that MAKING the movie would be far more exciting than actually watching it. But I had no idea that it would turn out THAT bad. I mean, it is just really embarrassing for a major studio to dish out tens of millions of dollars, and then come up with utter garbage. Even the CGI is stunningly bad. There is no story. One of the decepticons looks like, yes, it is quite unbelievable, the PREDATOR !!! Yes, from the movie franchise. Shia LeBoeuf's ADD/ADHD really, and I mean really, goes on your nerves. There is no clear explanation on why his girlfriend is his girlfriend, because there is not the least bit of chemistry between the two of them. She is also nauseatingly ugly, couldn't they have screwed another head onto her neck ? In all, definitely a good candidate for worst movie of the year. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. You know what. I am not gonna take my advantage for loving this movie that it's a total waste of the movie that how horrible it is same as the Revenge of the Fallen. For me, I dislike this movie for so long that it's nothing work, just like the rest of the terrible Michael Bay films. It throws everywhere with horrible people, horrible story, horrible effects, and horrible jokes that it gives to the audiences to enjoy this crap movie and it's very sad for me that this director wanted to get a decent action robotic movie. Not even one good moment, not even one! This is the kind of movie that your best friend wanted hang out with you at the Applebees and then you spend quality time with your best friend with lots of drinks and then your friend ask you to see this Transformers 3 with good money and then you started to get drunk while watching and then you don't even remember what happen went you spend time with your friend for watching Transformers 3. THAT"S THE KIND OF THIS HORRIBLE MOVIE THAT I WOULD RATHER TO SAY TO EVERYONE!!! Once again, the robots are really amazing with CG effects around everywhere, but everything else it so horrid, so disaster, and so forgettable. The story is a complete mess, the characters are so annoying (that I hate when Bay put all these fillers with stereotypes that drives me nuts), the action scenes are so long and boring as the same as the second one, the jokes are so bad, and the setting of this movie is so dark, violent, inappropriate, and completely wasting much time with adding stupid ideas to make. But I hate this movie when it's for kids and teenagers to make it too dark, too edgy, too goofy to make it so dark and it fails. And tell me that it's just a popcorn flick that people and fans are watching this movie and talk stupidity to every critic and hate goers that it's good and don't give a f@#k for anything to be more positive. Please, you can't judge every movie that gives pleasure of all these gimmick toys that kids will enjoy everything that they watch these dumb three movies. Beyond everything, it's way way way too far that it takes too serious and I had enough watching these terrible movies has to offer. I hate this film that the director won't give nothing credit that if he will promise to make it decent and I can see that this director is so mean that he'll team up with Uwe Boll or any directors out there that every product that doesn't work for me. I'm sorry for everyone and for those people didn't enjoy this movie of dislike it, it's horrible. I HATE IT!!! HATE IT! HATE IT! HATE IT! HATE IT! and 1,000 HATES IT TO THIS MOVIE ON THEIR FACES!!!

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The action scenes were entertaining and the CGI was spectacular. The plot was pretty bad. What I found to be the worst part of the movie was the Decepticon character development. In the cartoon there was always that tension between Megatron and Starscream. The first two movies sort of had the tension but IMHO they should have started with it from the first film. It sounds silly for robot character development but it would have made more sense than all the human rambling. Just a different perspective I guess lol

The first half of the movie at least tried to make some sense, the second half was all over the place.

Things blow up, an it i noisy. The plot has all the depth of a wading pool. If you really must see this "film", take ear plugs and dramamine. Eye candy with no plot or substance.

Almost three hours of an overly complicated plot mixed in with a ton of cool visual effects, explosions and total destruction. A definite mixed bag and not nearly as good as the first.

Your are not going to get anything out of this movie. Besides some cool action scenes, this movie offers nothing but a generic plo, annoying characters, and forced comedy. At least it's not as offensive as the second movie.

This is Michael Bay worst movie to date. He didn't want to do it, he was forced by Paramount to film it immediately instead of postponing it to 2012 as he told the press, then Paramount forced him to use useless 3D gimmick to raise ticket price... and all of that shows. Previous Michael Bay movies were all excellent although BadBoys2 had some issues and was worse than the first one, but still all his movies were done by a true perfectionist, strong quality control on everything, good plot, good main characters romance and there came the trouble for Transformers3.. he decided to fire his leading actress Megan Fox for whatever personal issues that should never ever affect any professional production like this and then he did even worse casting his worst leading girl to date, the Victoria's Secret topmodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley which surely has an hot body but a really ugly anonymous face, and more he focuses on her on the movie and more she ruined every single scene, she is just awful trying to act. Also having her play Sam Witwicky's new girlfriend is the dumbest idea ever seen in Hollywood to kill a trilogy, really. And it's like Michael Bay wanted to commit business suicide with this move, otherwise he lost his mind. All his movies since The Rock featured the romance factor and a couple in love viewers could relate to, he spent so much time focusing on Sam and Mikaela characters on the first two Transformers movies that giving Sam a new girlfriend was really just plain stupid.. maybe he thought Sam Witwicky became Will Smith's Mike Lowery character on Bad Boys all of a sudden... well, that didn't happen, couldn't happen and it was just plain dumb thinking anything like that. He ruined Sam Witwicky character. The Carly girlfriend played by Rosie really looks like a prostitute Sam decided to pay for playing his girlfriend or something, and it's not funny to watch. All of this alone was enough to kill heart and soul that the first two movies had along with the hot sexy factor that topmodel Rosie can't give despite porn-style closeups..whenever you see her face unless you liked women with ugly faces you couldn't get excited at all, and whenever she spoke she managed ruining entire scenes. Ok, then what is left? Amazing action scenes and CGI you might tell... yes and no.. I mean the actions are there, CGI is there but: 1) Action scenes look pretty fake most of the time you can spot serious editing issues like they didn't care to fix things up properly; 2) The CGI by ILM it's top-notch on some scenes but really really bad that it looks painted/cartoonish like Hulk(2003) or Speed Racer, two of the worst CGI works by ILM to date. What happened there? Well, obviously the useless 3D gimmick added too much work for ILM to deliver and many scenes look badly rendered, in some you see CGI transformers models looking like they were miniatures moving in stop-motion ancient techniques.. an horrible mistake you wouldn't expect after top-notch outstanding CGI on Transformers2 by ILM. And yes the 3D... is it worth it? Really? Never. Stereoscopic 3D is fake 3D, it hurts your eyes, it's not worth it. And just like Avatar the 3D here is not really used at all anyway. It's all marketing hype. Don't waste you money on the 3D gimmick, they want you to watch it in 3D to rip you off, more money to them and less quality to you along with eye-strain added as a bonus... If this movie didn't have 3D but was just full IMAX 2D and Michael Bay didn't fire Megan Fox it could have worked but as it is it's a huge disappointment for whoever loved the first two regardless the hatred those movies got. There complaints were all wrong, here too many complaints are right unfortunately. Expand

First fault in direction of the movie after the movie starts .... u start to wonder hw come a nerd, jobless fuk, non-handsome....in short the biggest loser ( Sam whitwicky) on the planet land two hotties.....Megan fox and RosieFirst fault in direction of the movie after the movie starts .... u start to wonder hw come a nerd, jobless fuk, non-handsome....in short the biggest loser ( Sam whitwicky) on the planet land two hotties.....Megan fox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley...WTF The title of the movie is repeated in the movie for lyk 136 tyms
SAM: blah blah....Dark of the moon?
Optimus Prime: Dark of the moon is.........blah blah
Everyone: Dark of the moon FTW The third trailer of the movie is not a collection of scenes from the movie...but just the last two minutes of the movie....and believe me the trailer is the best part of the movie. (And the frst trailer is the frst 2 minutes of the movie)( the second trailer is the collection of scenes from both these trialers) Rosie Huntington-Whiteley proves again that hot gals doesnt have/need any talent....she cant act, she cant run, she cant cry, she cant speak...but hu cares she got an amazing rack. Then Transfomers get less screen tym than the other human characters...even during supposedly intense battle sequences they show humans flyin/running around rather than two insanely huge robots butt-kicking OPTIMUS PRIME IS A BIG **** When battle is intense there is no sight of optimus prime ...but wen finally autobots are winning (because of some human weilding a handgun) then he suddenly comes around and kills of the retreating decepticons. BUMBLEBEE IS A GOOD CATCHER....he seems to be appearing in the movies only wen the heros are falling towards their death or they need to run away from some super awesome decepticon with ultra cool weapons.(and then he gets caught) 200 super cool robots against 7 average robots and handful of humans and 1 supermodel...hu do u think will win? And finally again the biggest disappointment in the movie is definetly Shia LaBeouf,...I dont even noe y is he der in the frst place ......he cant act, he cant run and he doesnt have an amzaing rack (thoguh he can shriek like a gal) ..end of acting career for him... luckily this is the last transformers movie.....hopefully it will be the last Michael Bay movie...If u want to waste 200 million dollars ...learn it frm this guy

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Oh say can you see by Optimus Prime... The lines from this movie that best describe itself include "this is a clusterf-", "what's going on here!?", and "Spock goes crazy in this one." That last line is foreshadowing of Leonard Nimoy's character's later betrayal and might have been amusing if I hadn't already been so bored by the redundant exposition of the human characters' lives, which drag on forever and still develop practically nothing. The previous movies suffered from the same fault: when the characters have no personality or depth, nobody cares about them and nobody cares during the time they are on the screen. Yet this movie fills so much time with these dull and overacted caricatures. Also, it is possible to make entertaining summer blockbusters without relying on the audience laughing at the movie's self-aware preposterousness. This movie motivated me to create a Metacritic account just so I could rate it down. I give it a 2 because it is better than the second movie (this one does have some funny moments - but oh so few exciting ones), which is easy because at no point does this one literally dangle giant balls over your face. It may seem harsh to be so critical of light summer fun, but one must reflect that every scene of a movie is a conscious decision that could have been made otherwise, and I can think of so many otherwise ways a movie based on the Transformers toys could have been made, even a third installment. The action was somehow boring despite the slow-motion (and here I thought slowing things down was supposed to make them more exciting), constantly rotating gears and multicolored laser lights - probably due to the lack of emotional anything; the plot was lost somewhere on the dark side of the moon; the humor was sparse; the sociopolitical under- and overtones blunt and plentiful (just count the shots of the American flag, the ratio of screen space occupied by medals, the summary execution of the "intellectual" Autobot). This movie was long, empty and confusing, and it just didn't need to be. Re-watching the original animated film would be much more worthy of your time. Expand

Michael Bay's direction has been so inept and mind-blowingly juvenile in the last two movies that you literally have to be his target age group or give yourself a lobotomy to see beyond it. What HAPPENED after the first one? I could do a better job (and that's saying a lot). Expand

My friend may have been offended by the above and asked me why? I think he likes the movie. I replied: "do you have a spare hour or two? i'll tell you. [15:27:23] calum: leaving aside the obvious lack of knowledge about the Transformers universe, Sentinel Prime (Alpha Trion) [Optimus Prime's Father] {Played by Leonard Nimoy, Galvatron, aka future Megatron} being but one glaring example. The whole use of the word race in general, both that it is used, when in reality the concept is imaginary, to refer to a whole species of robots is absurd. There is no real life proof that 'races' differ in any meaningful way besides minor ecological and geographical adaptations and evolutionary differences like my long thin nose to pick a rather vulgar example, which clearly changed from my African forefathers due to their migration to colder climates, thus allowing the more efficient heating of the air inhaled, to avoid hypothermia with the minor drawback of restricting the flow of air and thus reducing the amount that can be inhaled compared to those in warmer lands. In the movie however, race is used to define all of the transformers, their 'race' being what defines them and what they are fighting for the survival of. Also, the whole undertone of self sacrifice for ones 'race' or even planet, in the case of the humans, i find particularly disturbing as it glorifies suicide terrorism and our feeble attempt to combat such violence in kind. That isn't the morality that i grew up with in the 1980's. The Autobots would never and as far as I can remember, didn't kill anything. Let alone all the decepticons, and in the case of the usually docile and slow to anger Optimus, his own father, mentor and also a helpless and surrendering Megatron. It is this that got Prime killed in the very faithful, if a little market led Japanese Movie 'The Movie'. The Prime I know would never kill in cold blood, but then the Autobots are now an analogy for our brave and noble troops, who often are forced to murder, but Prime chooses this, so even as an example to the military, remembering this is a kids movie and not a rally cry, is still a rather disturbing moral example to set. The best performance was given by the CGI animators, but again, seemed more akin to the brutal comic books than the toys or cartoons with gratuitous dismemberment aplenty. The acting sucked, the script was worse and the director, it would appear is a racist facist homophobic **** Unless this movie is a true representation of the American worldview it can only be seen as, at best, a shameless marketing tool to sell toys with no thought given to it's content by it's creators and at worst a tasteless racist recruitment video for the so called 'war on terror'. The answer to terror it would have you believe is the merciless and complete destruction of ones enemies with no thought given to negotiation or understanding. And why the **** is Shockwave a giant snake with a separate dude that doesn't even talk and never turns into a laser gun? If any racial language used herein is offensive to you it is not intended as you can see above I don't even give the term 'race' legitimacy. Why? Because there is no such thing, simple. If you think you might be of a different 'race' to someone else or if the use of possibly offensive racial language perturbs you then it is because you are identifying yourself that way. If no ones a race, no one gets offended. Which is good because we are not and therefore we shouldn't. The word is used wrongly by most people to differentiate and in this movie, I guess they are using it well to refer to a species, eg the human race, or the cybertronian race. But it is still the wrong word, despite it's arguably accurate usage. So yeah, that's what offended me. Sure people believe in race, sure it isn't real, even surer everyone alive is racist, it is common sence to fear the unknown or the threat posed to the local womenfolk by a swarthy genetically more suitable rival. But when making a movie for kids, who should never be lied to, being so blatantly ignorant and misleading is in my opinion, unforgivable. In fact after watching the movie, i have a good mind to go and shoot all the dirty jews that made it in the head, even if they beg, like Optimus! Megatron is my inspiration no more! His feeble mercy is for the weak! Autobots, transform and kill em all!" So yeah, don't even pirate this filthy waste of bandwidth unless you... Nah, I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I finally went and saw Transformers Dark of the Moon last night. Kinda put it off for a while because I **** hated the second one and this didn't seem much better. But uh, finally got bored and went, this summer's been awful as far as good video games go. They're saving up all the big releases for the fall and holiday season. Here's my thoughts, with spoilers. Though really, this film is so dumb it's not the sort of thing you can spoil. -The story here is taken from the comics and the cartoon. When the Autobots leave in a giant ark that blows up, it's from Dreamwave's first storyline in their Transformers comic. And of course, the Decepticons using a space bridge to transport Cybertron to earth is "The Ultimate Doom" episode from the G1 cartoon. So... no real complaints there, them using the actual source material is a welcome change as they've pretty much butchered everything else up to this point.

-Who the hell is Q? He's some Autobot scientist that has hair? Why would transformers have hair? And how come I've never heard of Q before? I've watched the cartoon and read the comics and the character of Q, autobot scientist, never came to my attention before. Wait a minute. Q, that's the name of the gadget scientist that equips James Bond in every Bond film, isn't it? Is that what Bay is going for here, ripping off James Bond? Why the **** did he do that? The Autobots already have Ratchet and Wheeljack in the cartoons to outfit them with gear, there was no reason to make up some new lame character.

-The comic relief, terrible as it is, comes from the two small robots Wheels and Brains. I'm not sure if Wheels is still voiced by Steve Buscemi but he sounds slightly different. Anyways, these two stupid characters are awful and try their darnedest to remind you of Skids and Mudflap from the second film. They might not be quite as racially offensive, but it's a near thing. Even viewing them without the racial stereotypes, they're just plain annoying as hell and contribute nothing else to the film. Also, Brains for some inexplicable reason has troll doll hair on his head. Again, why would Transformers have hair? These are robots.

-Shia LaBeouf screams and acts like a **** idiot. This does not make him a good protagonist.

-The comedy in this film is bizarre and off-putting, in other words... typical Bay. Ken Jeong of course has to straddle Shia LaBeouf in a restroom stall and call himself "Deep Wang." Of course he does. Of course Bay finds this funny. In fact, this is almost the exact same scenario that Bay gave us in The Island, where it was Steve Buscemi with Ewan McGregor. An unsuspecting innocent walks in on them and thinks they're gay lovers. I'm not saying this sort of situation is unimaginably lacking in comedic value, but the over-the-top manner that Jeong acts just made me feel so embarrassed and disgusted for humanity that the possibility of humor never arrived. Ken Jeong, man, he needs to try and think up some new schtick, because it's just getting old. Cringeworthy comedy is not necessarily a bad thing but it didn't work for me here.

-With the way Michael Bay shoots her, Rosie Huntington-Whitely is not nearly as ugly as she looked in some promo stills. However... her acting sucks and she's still not as attractive as Megan Fox.

-Optimus Prime appears to be a murderous psychopath. I'm not even sure if he's better then the Decepticons. "We'll kill them all." "Let's find out." Whatever happened to the Optimus Prime from the cartoon? That's the one that us kids all looked up to. The Optimus Prime here is either wimpering for his life or slicing and dicing everything in sight like a cold-blooded murderer. We bounce around from one extreme to the other, never quite coming into harmonious alignment with Peter Cullen's majestic and inspiring voice, perfect as always. Don't get me wrong, his voice is great, just not what he's made to say in that voice.

-Optimus is also equipped with his trailer now, which is an improvement over the past films which always had him trailer-less. Here, it finally completes his vehicle profile and also serves a useful purpose as his equipment locker and battle station.

-Why would the Decepticons use humans to rebuild Cybertron? How does that even work? Human slaves are going to be starving and beaten, how are they going to be able to rebuild a totally alien mechanical planet? The Cybertronians are highly advanced technological beings, right? How would 6 billion humans know how to repair this advanced technological planet? Hell, 4 billion humans on earth probably don't even have access to wikipedia yet. I mean, if you want human slaves to build ancient pyramids by dragging giant blocks up ramps, I guess we could probably do that. But I imagine Cybertron has completely alien and sophisticated systems that make up its structure.

Unfortunately, it does little to make up for the shallow characters, bad acting and horrible plot. Megatron declares himself supreme ruler of Earth even though humans are technologically advanced with access to nuclear weapons. He only seems to have only enough troops to take over New York. Everyone is OK with this and they send the Autobots away on a rocket. No problem, they were hiding in the highly explosive rocket booster and they landed safely somewhere in the Atlantic ocean. The Autobots manage to get all the way to Manhatten in 30 minutes even though they're 1000 miles away and they can only transform into GM vehicles. Now we have half a dozen renegade robot heroes who all know karate and can win the war with Megatron by punching and kicking them to death. Humans already discovered in the last movie that you can take out a Decepticon with three grenades and no one seems to have a few naval ships handy with a couple of guided missiles. Not even the Obama White House is that incompetent. Let's not forget that a couple of 20 yr old college kids always seem to get top secret information without any clearance. I'm sorry, but the movie is just plain stupid! Expand

The scenario setup had promise though. The Apollo program and theThe third (and hopefully final) installment in the Transformers franchise is just as weak as its immediate predecessor and far weaker than the opening salvo in the trilogy. The scenario setup had promise though. The Apollo program and the space race were an elaborate front to get to the moon and check out a UFO which crash landed there. This crashed ship turns out to be a casualty from Cybertron and naturally holds some cargo which both the Autobots and Decepticons desire. These events are combined with more historical fiction including Chernobyl and with quality writing could really have taken off somewhere intriguing. Unfortunately, Michael Bay chose to focus on an extremely uncharismatic Shia LeBeouf and his insecurities of unemployment, jealousy concerning his girlfriend, and wishing he had more recognition from his previous attempts to save humanity. To extend an even bigger weakness, John Turturro is also back again and now seems like even more of a Daffy Duck sidekick instead of an actual human being. Michael Bay tries harder this time to make the hand-to-hand combat amongst machines work but anyone sitting in the audience will continue to find it quite challenging to tell the difference between Autobot and Decepticon until they somehow untangle themselves. Also, the humans scurrying around beneath their robotic feet while dodging falling bits of building somehow never get accidentally squished which should really give a lot of credit to the machines situational awareness. The Autobot leader, Optimus Prime, reprised his ministerial role and speaks only in philosophical platitudes which contribute nothing to anyone and is most likely why he receives far less screen time to perch on his soap box and spout them at whoever is unlucky enough to be in the room when he begins a sermon. His speeches resemble a page-a-day motivational calendar. The female lead this time, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, is not Megan Fox but is interchangeable enough that it does not matter. Casting also added ensured the new accent brought a British accent with her to make her even sexier to the American male audience. The first hour of the film has her getting in and out of quite a few low-riding vehicles in extremely short dresses which have most of the audience straining to catch a glimpse. I wonder if Megan Fox left this series before or after she read this script; she dodged a bullet here. The new additions of Patrick Dempsey, Francis McDormand, and John Malkovich hold their own with limiting material but Ken Jeongâ Expand

But if you are actually into movies with a coherent plot, tri-dimensional characters and non-cliché lines, then you'd be completely wasting your time here.
The three points I scored were solely due to the visual effects, which were mesmerizing and will most likely get an Oscar nod. But that's all there is to this movie.

A remarkably odd and unsatisfying entry. I loved the first and wasn't too impressed by the second. The first was tightly scripted with a solid main plot and little padding. It was a 2 hour roller coaster and all the better for it. The secondA remarkably odd and unsatisfying entry. I loved the first and wasn't too impressed by the second. The first was tightly scripted with a solid main plot and little padding. It was a 2 hour roller coaster and all the better for it. The second was a mess with too many plot strands and characters linking towards the rather underwhelming final battle and virtually no main plot to hold it together. Sadly, Dark Of The Moon is actually worse. But not because it has no plot. The basic premise involving Sentinel Prime is superb, but it's comprehensively ruined by far too many characters, most of whom are dreadfully acted, especially the usually dependable John Malkovich, in too many plot strands that, unlike the second film, go absolutely nowhere, and all clutter up the film so badly in the first 90 minutes that by the time the action starts. Terrible editing and an almost wanton disregard for very significant deaths in the series rob two of the most poignant moments of any emotional impact. Not to mention the choice to remove Megan Fox and replace her with a fembot. I don't even like Fox, but at least she could act out more than one emotion, that being "slightly confused". Bay's ability to make action sequences look stunning is certainly present, but they are so CGI heavy and the lighting so determined to show off it's HDR abilities on the CGI models that you can't tell what the hell is going on or who's winning. After each battle, you often have to wait for the next dialogue scene to figure out which shiny robot is still alive. All in all, it's just a damned shame. An intriguing plot that should have massive emotional impact for a blockbuster, that turns out to be a confused mess full of throwaway one liners and jokes, none of which are funny, not to mention wasting some serious acting talent on plot strands that go nowhere and rob the film of any momentum. Almost a complete disaster. Expand

The acting is good and the special effects are great, I must admit, but the storyline and plot of the movie and the characters are terrible and I just didn't care about them. There was no feeling in them and if they lived or died, I didn't care. At times, I thought maybe it would be better if they did. The movie is terrible and so is the director and almost anything is better than the Transformers series. Expand

I couldIt's ironic that a movie should include its intended target audience in its title, because I can't fathom how anyone with half a brain could like this bloated, over-the-top, cliched, terribly, terribly acted atrocious mess of a film. I could not actually finish this film, because about half way though, Shia and whoever the hell the lead actress is, their "acting" was seriously starting to get on my nerves, as was Michael Bay's repetitive formula of "action, action, action, action, cliched action movie lines delivered woodenly, action, action, action". How the hell Leonard Nimoy was roped into this I'll never know, and Steven Spielberg himself had absolutely nothing to do with this movie, he just had his name slapped onto it.

This film does not deserve to be in the Top 10 best sellers of all time, it doesn't even deserve to be in the Top 1,000. This movie should have been buried 12 feet under the ground, and left to rot. The only reason this movie was a success is the same reason Nickelback are successful; they're so formulated they don't require you to think, at all, and that's a very bold statement coming from me. I normally scoff at people who say things like that, but seriously, when you watch this travesty of a film you see how little you really have to work. Someone should tell film makers, and especially the half-wit that directed this atrocious abortion of a film that action scene after action scene is extremely tedious and boring, because they should be used to enhance the film, and not become the film. Michael Bay, you need counselling. You need to be told what a good film is. You admitted that you knew Transformers 2 was the pile of steaming horse **** that it was, and what did you go and do? Make a film that was even worse. All in all, badly edited, terribly, awfully acted, no coherent plot, no depth, no character threads, nothing. This film is just a big, bloated nothing. If you're going to watch this film, then sure as **** don't pay for this thing, find it online somewhere. I guarantee, you pay for this to buy or rent, and you've definitely wasted your money. Thankfully, this will be the last ballache of a film that Bay releases in this franchise, so it can be buried and forgotten as quickly as possible, or perhaps remembered as one of cinema's most embarrassingly awful moments.

Everything about this was horrible including the acting, directing, and writing. The only good thing was the action but I don't even like action. This franchise just keeps getting worst and worst by the movie. Why does this make so much money? I know why because spoiled Americans don't know what a good movie is. It is marketed towards kids and teenagers so you can tell that it's going to be bad before it even hits theaters. Michael Bay is going to be remembered for a long time as the worst directer in history. Who directs there actors to scream every ten seconds? The acting is also not even the least bit serious with people jumping around and doing things I never seen done on screen before. The directing of the camera man was also horrible. There where shots that cut off the top of actors heads and there where shots that I have never seen before. The writing was also very horrible. Even a 12 year old could have written this. But the worst part of it all I would have to say is the fast paced plot. The only good thing about this film is the special effects and the 3D. I would recommend this film to selfish greedy die hard capitalists. Expand

Michael Bay bombards us with mediocrity once again. Just like "Revenge of the Fallen" the characters are worthless, the jokes are bad, and the action scenes are too long and repetitive. Granted, this time around the movie does try to take itself a little more seriously. Gone are the racist robots and the constant kid jokes. But saying this is better than "Revenge of the Fallen" is like saying "I Am Number Four" was a better movie than "Battlefield Earth." Michael Bay lowered the bar so much with "Revenge of the Fallen" that he really has nowhere to go but up on this one. The final action scene does have its cool moments, but the action is poorly staged and way too long. I felt like I could have watched the beginning of the action scene, left the theater for 10 minutes, come back and not missed a thing. It's one of those action scenes that's impressive for the first 5 minutes before it overstays its welcome and stays at the same level. I guess if you liked "Revenge of the Fallen," you'll enjoy this as well. It's the same movie with a few improvements. But if you felt like Michael Bay grabbed the money out of your wallet the second time around, stay away from this. You're going to have the exact same experience. Expand

The human
The first 15 minutes or so was actually pretty good. Then it quickly squandered the visually interesting and narratively promising set up and descended into one of the worst films I have ever seen, along with the second movie.

The human characters are at best lifeless and two-dimensional with no emotional progression, at worst bizarre and unintelligible, behaving like no human I have ever seen (due to both the actors and the script); the robot dialogue is equally bad, and the side characters which are supposed to be funny are just plain cringing.

The story is appalling, failing to meet basic dramatic criteria; a smart child really could do much better. There's a romantic subplot wedged in which is completely ham-fisted, undeveloped and pointless. Other attempts at subplots like the main guy trying to fit into society and find a purpose are set up then abandoned. Characters act in absolutely ridiculous ways with no sensible explanation (the good robots pretend to leave the planet in a rocket for no well defined reason and then do nothing whilst the bad robots destroy cities, just to allow the terrible cliche of them returning when all hope is gone; the leader of the good robots joins the bad ones and doesn't bother explaining why in any coherent fashion), and the whole thing doesn't make sense at all, with the first part focused on a MacGuffin which apparently plays no further role in the story, and the last hour motivated the bad robots deciding that what a hyper technologically advanced race really needs is humans as animals for slave labour. And then killing as many humans as they can. It really is that bad.

I understand that this is an action film, but that doesn't excuse the total laziness and incompetence of all other aspects; action films can be good as films too. As for the action itself, if you've seen the previous movie, you've seen this one. With the exception of one original scene involving a tilting skyscraper which wasn't really used to full potential and was pretty much ruined by frustration at everybody apparently forgetting the purpose for which they climbed it in the first place, this is 3 more hours of robots and explosions. If you're under 15 then it kind of makes sense that this might appeal to you. Otherwise... well, have fun?

What we need now is a reboot of the series without Michael Bay because he has achieved the most he can with this series.

I'll give 1 point for great animations, 1 point for good acting (despite horrible scripts), and 1 point because its sci-fi and robots. Otherwise, garbage all the way. --- --- What really turned me off, was when the lead actor (does the name matter?) refuses to cut off his hand to save the world, but thinks nothing of killing himself and all his friends in a vain and logically futile attempt to save the girlfriend. So the hero turns out to be a selfish @hole. Then, US Army and Airforce somehow manage to infiltrate the enemy's captured Chicago, but for some reason the combined Earth a military's can't get a single nuke within detonation radius of the city. --- --- Typical liberal Hollywood whose ideal heroes fall so dreadfully short of true heroism. --- --- Turns my stomach as I turn it off.

Other than those two things, the movie is utter garbage. It rehashes everything from the previous movies. There is no real focus on any character and doing anything to really develop them (aside from Optimus.) Sam is as annoying as ever in all his LaBeouf-ness. New hot girl is bland and uninteresting (but at least slightly better than Megan Fox.) The rest of the cast is forgettable and are really just there as plot devises. The overall story is nonsensical and most of the time seems to just make up its own logic, Transformers 1 & 2 did this too, but nowhere near as much as this movie. Overall: This is a movie that was designed to be an optical marvel and really is nothing more than an insult to fans and the general public. In short: It's the movie equivalent of a gold-plated turd.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. "Iniziano bene e finiscono male" A.C. quello che si può dire del terzo capitolo della saga di Transformers.
E' un film che stata tutta una corsa, doveva iniziare e subito finire, una "minestra" di eventi che ha, secondo me, rovinato il film e la saga che lo ha preceduto; per non bastare, i registi hanno il vizio, direttamente o indirettamente di cambiare i personaggi. La bella e brava attrice Megan Fox (Mikaela Banes) sostituita dalla Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Carly Brooks Spencer) la prima "gnocca" che capita che brava solo a mostrare le gambe e non ha il talento della nostra amata Fox.
Il mio voto non può superare l' 1/10...il regista ha rovinato il sogno di un sognatore e ora vorrebbe fare il quarto capitolo per cercare di farlo continuare, ma il fatto che mi sono svegliato e del sogno rimasto solo il vuoto.

So what's the excuse this time?In the wake of widespread criticism of the second live action Transformers movie, Revenge of the Fallen, director Michael Bay admitted dissatisfaction with the screenplay and blamed it on the writers' strike. So what's the excuse this time? If anything, the script for Transformers: Dark of the Moon is worse than that of its predecessor. In the future, maybe Bay should abandon using a screenwriter altogether and just fill up 90 minutes with disconnected images of robo-carnage. That would serve two purposes: eliminate the need to watch actors embarrass themselves trying to outshine the hardware and elide excruciating dialogue, exposition, and "character development," all of which are inferior to what one finds in the average Pink Panther cartoon.

Bay makes the Transformers movies for 14-year old boys. I suspect he's one at heart, which gives him insight into the mindset of his target audience. I remember what it was like to be a 14-year old boy but I'm not sure I would have been more enamored with this movie at that age than I am today. Maybe it would have struck a chord when I was eight. That's when I watched Japanese monster movies which, technological advances in special effects aside, are not all that different from Transformers. In those movies, men in rubber suits pounded on each other. In Transformers and its sequels, CGI robots wreak the same kind of mayhem as Godzilla and friends. The average Japanese monster movie didn't have much of a plot either (aside from the obvious - stomp Tokyo), but it managed to get the job done with about an hour's less screen time.

It's pointless criticizing the action/destruction sequences in Transformers 3. Those are the "money shots" of this strain of cataclysm porn. People pay for extreme special effects. They want to see these Rockem-Sockem robots mash each other into the ground while Shia LaBeouf yells loudly in the hope that a big voice will compensate for his small stature (at least compared to the Transformers). In the biggest battles, I had some trouble figuring out the difference between the good guys (Autobots) and the bad guys (Decepticons), largely because (a) I'm not a Transformers fan (so the nuances escape me), and (b) things were moving a bit too fast. Aficionados will no doubt chortle at my ignorance.

The story, which requires more than a "willing suspension of disbelief" to swallow (an infusion of a mind-altering substance would be a good start), begins in the 1960s when men travel to the moon to investigate a crashed Transformers space ship. 40-plus years later, Optimus Prime (voice of Peter Cullen), having belatedly learned of this discovery, takes a salvage team to our nearest celestial neighbor. They return with the dormant remains of Sentinel Prime (Nimoy), who is resurrected by Optimus. Sentinel is the inventor of the Transformers' greatest weapon, which can be used to help or destroy humanity. The Autobots champion the former, but the Decepticons, led by a crippled Megatron (Hugo Weaving), have other plans. Old friends, like Sam, Lennox (Josh Duhamel), and Simmons (John Turturro), are joined by new ones, like Mearing (Frances McDormand) and Brazos (John Malkovich), to provide a human face to the resistance movement against the Decepticons as the evil metal creatures use Chicago as their base for an all-out assault on the planet.

Bay's flip-flopping on the issue of 3-D has led to widespread speculation about how effectively it is used in Transformers 3. After initially voicing opposition to it, he changed his position after discussions with James Cameron. Transformers 3 employs a mixture of native 3-D and post-production conversion. To his credit, Bay has avoided many of the common missteps, including the most pervasive (murky, muddy images), but there is still motion blur during intense action sequences. The most curious thing about the 3-D, however, is how innocuous it is. In many scenes, the 3-D approach does a remarkably good job imitating 2-D. People wearing the glasses are apt to forget that Transformers 3 is in 3-D not because they're immersed but because the 3-D is so flat and unremarkable. That's more than a little disappointing because the closer a Transformers film can come to an amusement park ride, the better.

Transformers 3 is like Transformers and Transformers 2 only bigger, longer, and louder. It's up to each individual to determine whether that holds appeal or is another cause to bemoan what the summer blockbuster has become.

Dark of the Moon is the second best Transformers installment in the franchise. Think that's going to get away with a positive score? Well, YOU'RE.... W-R-O-N-G!

A cinematic travesty of the lowest order. The CGI is extensive but it's shot so horribly that calling it impressive would be a gigantic stretch. Every single character's existence is akin to nails being dragged across a chalkboard. Yes thatA cinematic travesty of the lowest order. The CGI is extensive but it's shot so horribly that calling it impressive would be a gigantic stretch. Every single character's existence is akin to nails being dragged across a chalkboard. Yes that last sentence doesn't really make sense, but then again, this movie doesn't either and I don't want to feel like I've put more effort into reviewing this than Michael Bay put into making it.
