Michael Bay's Transformers 3:Dark of the Moon has been called one of the best Transformers films yet. This is of course an opinion, and mine differs greatly. The special effects, humor, and many of the same characters from the first two films carry over, although it makes for a somewhat repetitive experience. Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouff) returns as the movie's Protagonist, and military heroes Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and Epps (Tyrese Gibson) also make a return for the film. Unfortunately, Megan Fox did not return to Transformers 3, however another super-hot chick (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) has taken her place for the 3rd film. Much like the first and second film, the plot is simple enough for a fetus to understand, which is most likely because of the young age group that also enjoys the franchise.
After discovering an alien ship on the moon, it is discovered that a lost Autobot (Good machine) holds the power to rebuild Cybertron (ultimately destroying planet Earth). Eventually, Decepticons (Bad machines) invade planet earth, and the last hour of the film unfolds into a mass of mind-blowing special effects that will make you scared of your own car.The goal for our protagonists is simple (basically destroying the detonator that would destroy Earth). But the protagonists seem to be making their way through the city for a large part of the film. Transformers 3:Dark of the Moon seems to drag its feet when it comes to advancing in plot. But while it fails horribly in any intellectual stimulation, the special effects and action sequences are more than enough to keep you entertained, although many of the stylized action scenes are predictable. I found the humor in Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon to be much more corny and even childish than in the first two, which definitely took away from the experience. It's hard for me to take a talking truck seriously to begin with. Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon has failed to make me believe I paid money to see anything other than the first two movies. If you enjoyed the first two films, or you simply enjoy any form of action movie, Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon is a good flick for you. But if you're looking for a movie that makes you think, or leaves you with a sense of originality, Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon is not the best option. This film is rated PG-13, mostly for it's intense sequences of action.
