“the Visuals and sound effects, however, were stunning, i really can't deny that, and i only saw this in 2D, people seem to like the 3D and highly praise it.
“ More of an emphasis on the villains strengths and capabilities would have drastically improved the already enjoyable action scene at the end.
“ Yet he knows one thing: how to make a movie exciting.
“ This is boring like it's very dull.
“Spike's parents were so funny in the first film, and so vulgar in the second, hear they have improved to being merely banal.
“ There is no story telling here.
“ Even big names like Frances McDormand and John Malkovich are added to the mix and make this more enjoyable.
“ Keeping some entertained for over 2 hours is no easy task, but with Michael Bay's hand at the director realm, we got great action and fast paced witty dialogue.
“by then I was so bored by the bad dialog and plot that I didn't care.
“Some of the set pieces are astonishing, the highlight being some humans trapped in a sky scraper leaning on another sky scraper, trying desperately to make their way across the fallen building into the still intact one as Shockwave tears the building apart, but the whole battle sequence in Chicago is breathtaking.
“ It was just a showcase of high- tech, expensive but pointlessly executed special effects filled with extremely boring clichés, petty thrills and cheap attempts to draw big crowds.
“ Ehren Kruger's script is too banal and drags the movie on too long.
“ The story is pretty simple and predictable as you would expect.
“ OMG, this was one of the worst movies I've seen in years.
“ And you shouldn't clap anyway; Michael Bay can't hear you and the Odeon workers don't care if you enjoyed it or not, they just want you to leave so they can find your forgotten bags and go home.
“3D effects are breathtaking and mind blowing.
“It might help if this movie were half as long, literally, to chop out all the empty filler, though it wouldn't help much.
“The script lacks any forward thinking, trudging along at a gruelingly slow pace.
“Amongst all this sex, conspiracy, militaristic posing and inappropriate nods to 9/11, the worst aspect of the movie must surely be that for all the money spent and for all the technology used, Transformers: Dark of the Moon is rather boring.
“ In the end, this film - like a lot of sequels - is pretty pointless.
“ The plot is pointless.
“ It's like a trademark of the "series" - introduce characters, set up the premise, and then trade in the characters for some outrageous, over-the-top and pointless action scenes to close everything out.
“The movie was a tragedy in that there were incredible special effects seens, ones that were worthy of awards and for ground-breaking special effects setting a new bar to be surpassed, but it was mixed up with a few really funny parts, but also the incredible shallowness and narcissism of the main characters, mainly Sam, Optimus Lies and his cliché Australian moron transforming thugs (I don't even remember those two transforming!
“ Most of it is just boring.
“ I walked into Transformers 2 with semi-decent expectations and walked out of the theater angry that I just wasted 10$ to see what basically amounted to a half baked attempt at a cash grab.
“ The cinematography and special effects are absolutely breathtaking in 3D!
“ This is simple entertainment and at entertaining this movie does not fail.
“ Not only does nothing happen, but when it does happen, it is garbled and confusing, with big jumps in continuity and logic.
“ My expectation is quite high for it after I have watched the trailer which seems to be very promising with a number of exciting action-packed scenes, and yes
the film appealed to that successfully, and so it reached my expectation, and even a bit higher.
“Really, it is unbearable and it pains me as the action is good and the potential of the film high.
“ I still feel that the first film was the best, but this film was watchable and even enjoyable.
“The movie starts slow and shows its mettle from the second half.
“ It is boring, stupid, paced horribly, and just put together so horribly and so crudely.
“ I said in my recent Wall Street 2 review that it would be better if Shia LeBeouf was in another Transformers film, well here he is, as bland and lifeless as the last two times, just one of quite a few actors failing to deliver rubies when handed pearls.
“This is one of the best movies i have ever seen for pure adrenalin fuelled action and mind boggling special effects......
“ My girlfriend fell asleep during the end-sequence about five times, while suffering insomnia as I do, I could only think "take out that goddamn tower, Optimus, so we can get on with the rest of the evening we planned.
“ Problem #3: when the teleportation is interrupted a black-hole like funnel sucks Cybertron in – it is the size of the Earth and very close, but nothing happens to earth's atmosphere?
“ Do not recommend to anybody, save your money and nerves.
“ Being one of those people who grew up with the action figures and animated series it has been exciting to watch the movies so far with the first of the franchise films being created in 2007.
“ The drama was intense.
“ the only problem i have is that it was predictable in some points.
“ But still the movie is highly enjoyable in many ways & I loved it.
“ Dark of the Moon is just as boring as the 2nd.
“ This movie (Compared to the other Transformers films) Is quite enjoyable.
“Every character in this film is a 2D cliché, from the sleazy traitorous boss to the hard-ass intelligence director who learns to bend the rules.
“ Frances McDormand joins the cast as the Secretary of Defense but doesn't really up the ante any, Patrick Dempsey's role is mostly pointless and only helps at bringing out LaBeouf's star ego.
“ It's just too bad Michael Bay makes us watch boring and ridiculous stories about the humans.
“Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a fun and enjoyable movie that fans of the previous Transformers will most likely enjoy,and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good action movie.
“If you want to see this movie (I thought it was too long and too silly) save your money and see it flat.
“ The battle of Chicago begins with an intense attack on the city by the decepticons.
“ With mind-blowing CGI, good to descent acting, good story, and intense action sequences, Transformers: Dark of the Moon proves itself to be the best of the trilogy.
“ Except for the special effects, there is nothing else in the film, and you will see the same old story that is very tedious, I do not think it's the pleasure you expect it to be.
“ The problem with this is the fact it suffers from no straight forward narrative, and relies on drawn out, cliché action scenes that, while well-crafted, go on for way too long of a time span.
“ Hands down that this may be the most entertaining movie of the summer, thank you Micheal Bay!!!
“ WAY too long.
“ Half of this movie is just pointless filler.
“ I was yawning almost immediately as we spend the first twenty minutes watching something from the History Channel reviewing our proud accomplishments in space.
“ Shia Lebeouf did what he did in the first two movies , bored us to death.
“ Overall this is enjoyable to watch.
“ And yet Michael Bay and screenwriter Ehren Kruger once again choose to toss their intrinsic awe and power out of the window in favor of overpopulated, bland stick-figure human characters.
“But somehow, I enjoyed it.
“If you can get past the seriously laughable plot, and the fact that you've paid an additional $4 per ticket and must now fit 3-D glasses over your prescription ones, then the rest is somewhat enjoyable.
“ I hate it when people rate some movies just because the story was cliché or predictable, did it ever occur to those people that wasn't the goal in some movies.
“We get lulled into believing that there may somehow be an intelligent plot coming from the conspiracy of the NASA lunar-landing cover-up which also involves the Russian space program and Chernobyl.
“ But the problem was that it was a school day, and I had finished college for the year, younger viewers got bored and decided to start running around to play tag and make noise.
“ Transformers Dark of the Moon, a promising title followed with equally promising buzz over the last several months that swelled with intense anticipation.
“ I went with my girlfriend and we were talking about it with her dad and we suggested going into it half way through the movie if he wouldn't have the patience for the slow beginning.
“ There is only so many times that I can be impressed with a vehicle transforming into something else, in slow motion, before it becomes repetitive and I felt like I reached my limit in this film.
“ Rather than finally giving us characters to care about, Bay has created Asian stereotypes as tasteful as American World War II-era anti-Japanese propaganda; villains whose motives don't make sense (why is Megatron a hobo?
“After the confusion of the end of part two, with no one knowing what was going on and which robot was fighting which, this edition begins with the defeated Deceptacons in exile while the Autobots are involved in an uneasy co-operation with their human hosts.
“ There are many more things I could point out in the movie but it would only bore you.
“ So succeeded more in entertaining me in my book.
“ It's as exciting as it sounds and only serves to distract from the admittedly impressive action.
“ There are so many jokes about possible gay characters that it gets boring fast.
“ They dragged it out for longer than they needed to, and the film could have had maybe 20 minutes trimmed from it.
“So, TF3 is not perfect, but it's very entertaining, it's the best action movie ever, and by the way, what do you expect from Michael Bay's movie than CG and explosion?
“ Those scenes are really intense and fun to watch.
“ The fight between the Autobots and Decepticons is so much overdone that it becomes mundane and you actually loose track of who is attacking whom and why should i care.
“ I liked his character in the other two movies, but in this one he's so over-the-top and hysterical that it's annoying, and the storyline with him and his new girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whitley) is an uninteresting distraction at best.
“ Visually stunning, the 3D kept me on the edge of my seat.
“ etc etcTHAT would've made the movie much more exciting.
“ I could complain all day about it but it was 100% worth watching.
“ It was terrifically photographed with some stunning scenery.
“ This movie is just a waste of money, think of what could be done with this amount of cash for the improvement of the human species!
“ As I said above, the plot goes all over the place which, combined with a literal (and to quote one of the characters) "cluster****" of comedic/serious scenes, makes the incredible action in the final act feel more strenuous than entertaining.
“ There was no story supporting any of it.
“ Disappointing and way too long .
“ But at least the action was a doze of adrenaline.
“ This film is TOO long!
“But my problem with this film is that it's SO DULL!
“ better off watching the 1st part which was way more entertaining.
“ However, the twist is extremely predictable.
“ This was one of the most boring movies ever seen .
“ There are also many "slow motion" punches, stabs, decapitations, etc. It seems like no happy medium could be found for the pace of these action shots - they are either too fast to know what exactly is happening, or too slow that the point is engraved into your brain.
“ it was as action packed as the original transformers movie.
“ Some of the dialog is snappy and the movie keeps the audience engaged.
“ Forget the Blockbuster cliché "it's just a bit of fun" - it isn't.
“ Shia LaBeouf's acting barely qualifies as acting at all as he resorts to mostly his "Even Steven" twitching antics with dialogue so predictable I hated every minute of his screen time.
“pretty funny as usual) as the first half, it's all cluttered up and it's confusing as hell.
“ Unbearable .
“ An improvement over REVENGE, but still rather tiresome .
“ What a waste of time and money.
“Then comes the typical cliché characters in the American military, all pumped up and Rambo like macho men with big huge guns and gear running around and kicking A** !!
“ Second was iffy, but I still enjoyed it for what it was.
“ Bay knows what the public likes, he can keep the attention span of new young followers and still keep it entertaining for older.
“ A dark plot ruined by silliness, corny touches, pointless franchise characters and everything done OTT just because they can afford it .
“ This movie was like 3 hours but It is well worth watching.
“This was a thoroughly entertaining movie.
“ Regarding action scenes there is a long one involving a sky-scraper in Chicago that is pure adrenaline.
“ Maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much.
“So yeah if those people want to waste their own time with mind numbling stupid dialogue then step right in folks.
“ This seems somewhat pointless when they are the respective leaders of the two sides and a truce on their OWN planet would have made much more sense.
“ 3rd worst movie I have seen in 2011 .
“ So how hard can it be structure a film with a cohesive plot good guys vs bad guys and a beginning , middle and an end with exciting battle scenes?
“ Like World Battle: Los Angeles it's a video game with cliché heroism.
“ The movie sucks please save your money
“ From a Transformers fan I would say "hideous", as an common cinephile, "confusing".
“ I think it's meant to look to super cool in 3D but after the millionth time, all it does is slow down the movie.
“ IPlease excuse my honesty, but i could hardly watch exactly 10 minutes from it, as it gave me the feeling of 'dying slow'.
“ I assure you , if you can sit through the first hour you will be on the edge of your seat for the rest of the movie .
“ The twists and turns in this movie keeps me on the edge of my seat.
“This by far the best of the 3 and at least made me forget about the bore the second film was.
“ There is some exciting action and I found myself engaged enough to want to see the outcome of the struggle.
“ The only problem for me is that Bay prolongs and repeats the robotic clash sequences to the point of being self-indulgent.
“ 80% of the script was pointless!
“While this transpires, Josh Duhamel's intense fearless Lennox leads his Special Forces team to investigate transient readings from Chernobyl in the Ukraine.
“ What a waste Of time!
“ The third movie starts out pretty much as the second movie and you realize that it is pretty much the same crap as the second movie, just longer more illogical and boring.
“ I didn't consider myself a Michael Bay fan, thought Armageddon was one of the silliest and worst movies ever made.
“Thankfully,Kruger shows with this film a huge improvement,by giving the slightly injured franchise a strong,gripping back-to-basics feel,by mostly getting rid of the very ill-fitting juvenile humour,and instead replacing it with an unexpectedly thrilling conspiracy storyline,which helps to give the film a strong foundation,and also gives the stunning action scenes a sense that they are connected with the films plot and not just a separate entity.
“Let's begin with storyline - it is boring and some of the twists make it even more boring and unrealistic.
“ The jokes were immature, offensive and became extremely dull and repetitive with two "jip and hive" Autobots who were really annoying.
“ I would rate it 10/10 if it were just for the Special Effect's and Action, however the confusing and jumbled story - line, lack of knowledge on a range of character's and the poor acting skills from some of the actor's leave me to give it a 6.
“ I would have to say that this is an action packed film and it's a very good one.
“after revenge of the fallen i felt a little, uneven with this movie but when i watched it I loved it, I was gripping my seat with the GREAT CGI effects, and intense action.
“ Great battle sequences and an unexpected betrayal.
“ The movie is also way too long, at 157 minutes, wow.
“ The first half is poorly paced and dull to the point of boredom, and while the second half fares much better due to the action it came too late and wasn't enough to stop the film from becoming a messy bore overall.
“ It's meant to lure audiences with its predictable combination of humor, action and special effects.
“Story-wise, well, the movie was good enough for what it was, and it was entertaining enough for what it was.
“ Dark of the moon is an action packed, thought out and visually stunning work of art.
“ The good news is, he has also not lost his flair for explosive action and, in these moments, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is every bit as entertaining as its prequels.
“ It had a great conspiracy theory, stupendous robots, mind boggling action scenes, and a cast of characters who blended quite well - Dutch is my favorite new character.
“Even the special effects are boring and the sound effects are totally annoying - and nothing is new or original it was already seen and heard in the previous 2 movies.
“ I personally thought the plot and acting were good, not amazing, but good enough in the package, it was enjoyable for me, and if you go to movies to be entertained and can look past your pet expectations of amazing plot(It's not exactly easy to pull S7vens and Shaw-shank Redemption's out of a hat) THEN GO SEE THIS MOVIE.
“Bay also still sees the need to have bad comedy, whether it is in the form of annoying and pointless characters like Wheelie and Brains, or Ken Jeung role as a guy who worked with the Deceptions and ends up being made out to be a strange weirdo, ending up with a gay joke, oh high class wit.
“ Don't Waste your Money .
“ Anyways overall this was a good summer flick that has some entertaining action sequences, the war between the Autobots and Decepticons at the end was satisfying and felt it was worth the price of admission this time around.
“ Hated it so much at it left me wondering how a movie about gigantic Robots fighting could be so boring.
“ As a result, lengthy stretches of action were rendered boring and depressing.
“ There was very little plot and an endless amount of Roland Emmerich there.
“ I always thought he had brilliant presence and charisma as an actor, but maybe because of a lack of story, direction and script it ruined his last outing as Sam Witwicky.
“ Shots of robots shattering apart in slow-motion or people swinging through the chaotic mayhem are breathtaking.
“ The two little robots was pointless as well.
“ This might sound primitive, but I can only watch robots fighting each other for so long before it gets repetitive and I begin to lose interest in exactly who's fighting who, and why.
“ There are intense and drama parts.
“All in all, a waste of time and money.
“ For me transformers is all about mind blowing special effects with robots and humans, the story doesn't interest me at all, if i wanted to go for a really good and mind blowing story and transformers would be that, i think the average reviewer would have given it a way higher score.
“Akshay Kumar totally make movie boring.
“ and sometimes when the story gets slow, they introduce characters to help drag it along, only for the characters to be killed off 10 minutes later.
“OK, lemme not talk about the action for a bit; the story was incoherent and most scenes made no sense at all in having them there, the first 30mins was like watching the first 30mins of a very, and I mean VERY, predictable chic flick mixed in with a terrible so called funny movie like "Corky Romano" (more so, a very very bad version of corky romano, which is already a terrible movie to say the least).
“Agreed, it has no redeeming plot, no storyline, it's exaggerated beyond words and acting sucks.
“ In fact her role was completely pointless and there was a point where she's interacting with the transformers as she's been in the previous 2 movies and took herself way too seriously at times.
“ Such a CGI fest that became boring, and the reason why I only saw this once.
“ That being said, guess what the new Transformers offers...?If you guessed another action packed flick with not much else to offer, then you're correct.
“ Forcing the character of Sam (Shia Lebeouf) and others to be a part of a plot that they have no reason to be in anymore just adds a lot of unnecessary, empty scenes to a movie that has no business being 2 1/2 hours long.
“Starting with an eye-stunning movie in 2007 (Transformers), a pure summer blockbuster in 2009 (Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen), and an epic in 2011 (Transformers: Dark Of The Moon), Transformers hit the world, attacked by the critics, and rise again in 2011.
“ It seems like Bay sat in his directors chair and said "Oh, these people have been talking for almost a minute, let's have a robot smash through the wall and break something before people fall asleep".
“ There are a lot of deceptions and twists that create confusion which then turns this film into a massive headache.
“ The boy's story is boring and uninteresting, and the new girl is clearly here to shut up and look beautiful.
“ No matter how hard you try to get yourself suck in it, BOREDOM still dominates.
“ If you are looking for a great action packed film to see these holidays I recommend seeing 'Transformers'.
“ It's a waste of screen time and special effects.
“ The new Autobots were enjoyable.
“Many may balk at Bay and his movies, but one cannot say his movies are boring.
“ To watch a little fantasy that is completely unrealistic but enjoyable.
“ Where the movie failed is how boring it is and the constant rehashing from bad pun to another.
“ Before I saw this movie, I saw tons of reviews saying that this film was a fun, action packed movie, with great visuals, and a plot that actually wasn't that bad.
“ Wow great graphics, love the action but pretty bore movie and too long.
“ Boring characters, boring designs of the transformers, boring scenario, plots (is there any?
“ It was unpredictable and entertaining.
“ Other than the amazing effects, authentic sound, quite excellent action and above average cinematography and editing, this Transformers entry was a waste of time in my opinion.
“ Entertaining Michael Bay style.
“ The girlfriend was a waste of time as was having sam's parents in the movie.
“ An out-of-the-blue battle on the highway scene, with Mr. LaBeouf being tossed out of his transformer-car and then caught again was quite thrilling, as were the scenes with a new robot equipped with giant worm-like tentacles.
“ Like many Michael Bay movies this has his trademark stamped all over it -loud action -S**t ton of explosions -hot babes -long drawn out climaxes usually involving you guessed it...
“ However the constant explosions gets a bit tiresome after a while, explosions and a lot of actions is what this film is known for with robots beating the crap out of each other.
“The film starts out just as any other Bay film with a pointless mix of thoughtless dialog and meaningless characters.
“ The films story is so confusing, especially If you have not seen the first two.
“ But an Intellectual BORE .
“ Honestly, honestly - save your money.
“ Or, just tank up on soda so that you're forced to leave the theater multiple times to relieve yourself.
“ The action scenes were very thrilling, and most of the actors do a good job.
“ Yet with the added assurance of the 3-D fusion camera system and someone with as keen an eye for action as Michael Bay, there was something thrilling — at least in theory — about this installment.
“the time length of movie is too long but it is worth to watch with amazing action packed 3D effects...
“ After watching the 2nd Transformers i expected it to be somewhat boring.
“ Quite simply one of the worst movies ever made.
“ A great thrilling ride despite its flaws.
“just don't waste your money on this movie..........
“ If you're that bored then watching this will KILL you!
“ This one was way too structural and predictable!
“ They made action and real cool CGI boring, how ironic.
“intense gritty and sometimes gruesome action.
“ A horrible waste of time, effort and money, specially since a lot of effort must have gone into the graphics only to produce this distasteful parody of sorts.
“As for the story, it must be said there is just no story.
“ All the excitement, the adrenaline, the eagerness that was there before the movie started snowballs into one gigantic sphere of guilt as the end nears, leaving you flummoxed as to why you went to see the movie in the first place.
“ After watching Transformer's in 2007, I fell in love with the stunning new rendition of the well known franchise.
“ And that bit where Starscream blew up that spaceshit (read it exactly as its written), talk about the most predictable part of the entire movie, it was so obvious that they'd find a way back before the ship even got out of the earth's atmosphere.
“First off effects are a tool for telling stories, when the effects become the story then we have no story.
“At two and a half hours this film is far too long; the action does look great with robots transforming, fighting and blowing things up; the problem was the best action isn't exciting if one doesn't care about the characters.
“ Good acting by the main characters, with the exception of the "Megan Fox Replacement" It WILL keep you on the edge of your seat, especially through the hour-long final battle.
“ People put a great deal of work in to making this film look visually stunning.
“Oh and as far as pointless insertion of useless token babe goes, Megan Fox was better, at least she as some real acting skill.
“ I thought "Transformers" was an enjoyable movie, and it still is.
“ The first sequel (which came out 2 years later), however, was a dreary mess and, while its follow-up has been touted in some circles as the best of the series, a local write-up gave it the thumbs-down; having watched the film for myself, I have to agree with the latter opinion!
“First half was slow paced.
“ In both Matrix 3 and Transformers 3's over-long final battle scenes, I was literally left bored despite all the efforts they put in for "heart" and special effects.
“ The film has its share of wonderful scenery, but it feels rather drab and grim overall (which helps add a sense of doom and gloom; parts of this movie are rather scary).
“ All in all, the three movies together are entertaining.
“SUMMARY: Dull, 45 minutes too long, a terrible assault on the senses and the intelligence.
“ it was long, dull, and filled with highly incoherent characters, as I'm seeing that the chemistry between certain characters are simply not working or no longer working.
“ The majority of the fighting takes place in downtown Chicago, and it was exciting to see how the action integrated with the layout of the city.
“ 7/10 - Some problems, but overall enjoyable popcorn fun.
“ More waste of my money!
“ Honestly this movie was dull.
“ This caused the film to bloat up to a tedious two and half hour running time.
“ It's totally mind-numbing and tedious.
“ Victoria Secret model stunning Rosie Huntington-Whiteley assumes her place as Shia LaBeouf's Sam's girlfriend.
“ Fast Paced Sci-fi .
“ Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley performs acceptably as Megan Fox's replacement token eye-candy, but the fact remains that the romance side-story is a waste of time - time that could be better used.
“Infection I: Pretentious = why people dislike Michael Bay, you can really feel his arrogance in the movie.
“ The 3D, too, is stunning, with a daredevil freefall by Josh Duhamel and his special ops rangers into a maelstrom of robo-carnage being the standout.
“ There's that rush of adrenaline, the heart beats become faster, the pulse quickens and all your thoughts converge into making the most out of what lies in front of you, be it a naked body or bare knuckle metal.
“ Though not at all boring, 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' is very long & slightly dragged.
“ The action is so fast that the viewer finds it hard to follow at times.
“ Transformers: Dark of the Moon Good thing(Hindi)- awesome effects,Akshay Kumar voice over 4 Optimus prime,technically more advanced than previous,detailed transformations, nice slow mos bad thing- forced 3d effects with headache, time pass story , boring last half, you fell like leaving theater MEGAN FOX WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE BETTER THAN LAKME MODEL POUTING WITHOUT ANY REASON again n again .......
“ As for the whole story and plot, i think its based on opinion, i thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was carried out very nicely.
“ Worst Movie I've Ever Seen .
“ You will buy and people will be paying Bay for a merely entertaining moment and an absolute mess of a story.
“ Entertaining, yet plot-less .
“My favourite part of Transformers, even more the mind blowing spectacle of watching them transform, is Sam Witwicky.
“ But overall it was enjoyable in a theater & i didn't hate the 3DBTW this is my first movie review ever.
“ But overall it was very enjoyable.
“ What a bore!
“But the Transformers series is a torture to watch and the latest episode, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, is the worst of all.
“ It is a breathtaking battle and I cannot imagine seeing it any other way.
“ The slower editing pace, finally, gives the audience a chance to look at these mangled pieces of metal animated as if they are surreal sculptures (or even like that icky exhibit of frozen bodies).
“ The Transformers themselves look great and the action is seamless and intense.
“ But as I have experienced with the other transformers movies, the fighting among the autobots wears thin long before each battle is over, and at a running time of right around 2.5 hours is too long for me.
“ Yes, it's so fantastic that it's totally uninteresting during last 20-30 minutes.
“#10: A Horrible Experience At An Unbearable Length.
“ It is an "event" movie so the normal rules don't apply, but I liked the plot and I liked the effects – a bit of work on the script, dropping loads of characters, dropping sappy rock ballads and maybe letting the camera stay in one place for longer than 2 seconds and MAYBE this could also have been an enjoyable film rather than a technically impressive battering.
“ After discussing it with some of my fellow friend's, they also found it very confusing.
“ Not only the violence, but the themes in this film annoyed me, not me personally, because I, along with a large percentage of the population, am aware that Michael Bay is simply a rich, vacuous and pretentious idiot.
“ With only a few slow downs in the story, Kruger is really able to hold our attention very nicely over the course of this two and a half hour film.
“ It's so engaging that I didn't even want to blink, for fear I might miss anything.
“ The plot is well executed with stunning Car crashes and action..Before anyone thinks about giving any negative critics about this movie, kindly check some psychiatrist.
“but forget what actually makes a movie special - a gripping story-line with actors that can actually carry it through.
“The CGI is amazing and the action is so fantastic in this film and the best part is at the end of the film, and it was so long but I enjoyed it and the film is 154 minute long feature film.
“ But the robots all look alike and it's too long and confusing.
“ It seems that Michael Bay tried far too hard to Americanize the movie, especially that corny scene where Megatron destroys the statue of Abraham Lincoln and sits in the empty throne.
“ But when you make us walk a long road to get somewhere and we get something we've seen before it just makes the whole trip useless and contrived.
“ Me and 3 of my friends went to the movie and all of us fell asleep during the movie.
“ Waste of time.......
“ I, however, was fairly bored.
“ The action was pointless.
“ By the third part it becomes quite ordinary and mundane.
“ Stunning, computer-generated, robot-mashing, action.
“ It had twists, it had a plot that made sense and the action was mind blowing.
“ Also as i said before it does go on for a while, i do hope there is another Transformer film as i do enjoy watching them, so overall, a film worth watching
“ It fills you with excitement in the beginning, but will leave you empty when you leave the theater.
“ My over all review of the movie is a 8/10, while it is entertaining, there are times where i find a scene dragging on a bit long, besides that this film is Highly watchable and i WILL be watching it again soon.
“ Enjoyable but a bit confusing .
“ Aside from the traditionally eccentric displays from Johns Malkovich and Turturro, the rest of the cast is bland and unengaging.
“ If you go into this looking for anything other than an action packed , transformer movie , you will be disappointed.
“The dialogs are so inane and trite, that one might strongly suspect whether there was any script at all.
“ The scenes are always repeating their selves (two robots fight with each other, robots beating in humans, robots saving alien junk) and you can't realize were a robot start and finish, it's just a monumental confusion.
“ The action and CGI is really exciting to look at and a getaway for some viewers when they see a film; robots transforming from cars, buildings collapsing from the sky, soldiers flying into battle in wing suits, and what must have been thousands of explosions all in 3D.
“"Most of the characters seemed a bit boring.
“ It is breathtaking and a triumph for 3D, proving that it can be done properly and amaze the viewer.
“ It starts out great, but by the time you leave the theater the movie has degraded into crap.
“ The Transformers look ultra impressive, and they sound mind blowing.
“I felt that due to enjoying the first film a lot,I decided that for the second one,I would make sure to watch it at the cinema,and though the film did feature some impressive fight scenes,which were a stunning blend of real locations,and eye-catching special effects, (the great "forest" battle,being a fantastic centrepiece for the film)the movies plot sadly seemed to run out of steam at around the first hour mark,which left the rest of the film feeling very drawn out and too slow paced.
“ Another 3D fiasco - All effects, no plot.
“Some extremely tedious moments.
“ Five things say this movie deserves an 8: The cliché but unexpected betrayals, The death scenes, The worm, Sam's coming of age subplot,and the Cole Train.
“I know it's confusing that in a film about a so called global attack all of the action takes place in one part of one American city.
“ The fact that they managed to drag this on for 2 and a half hours is just fascinating.
“ It gave some unexpected twists that even caught me by surprise.
“ This film is another action packed Michael Bay masterpiece.
“ All of the wannabe critics who feel there's no plot, no heart, no realism, (a misnomer since it's SCI-FI), see a play instead.
“ Sam's boss, played with crazed zeal by John Malkovich, is nonetheless pointless.
“ There's some sprinkling of humor and decent action, but again, the film dragged quite a bit.
“ It's so long and demanding, I felt 10 years older when I left the theater.
“ Interesting film in some ways, but I'd have to agree with one reviewer who said that the near-$200M budget for "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" is a horrible waste of money.
“ Director Michael Bay seems to overlook and sacrifice legitimate premises and possibly interesting outcomes in favor of confusing and over-wrought visual effects which ultimately do very little to advance the effectiveness which potentially could have developed within.
“ Thus we had 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' which was a terrible in parts, overly complicated and had a dull climax.
“ Did i mentioned that robots have hair and beard..Yes metallic beard..Ha?Anyway listen this..Don't waste your money.
“ Its a brilliant treat for the eyes to see the mind blowing special effects, 3D is the icing on the cake.
“ The 3D is also terrible and pointless I have seen several movies in 3D recently and it was totally under used and wasn't even consistent not being used throughout the movie and the movie was about an hour to long, I prefer long movies but this one actually dragged along not going anywhere.
“ Even the other robots are bland and you can't tell one from the other (apart from the two small really annoying ones who must come from the same planet as Jar Jar Binks).
“ I was on the edge of my seat throughout the movie, excited, shocked, amazed, I even had a few tears in my eyes!
“ Those details made the intermediate hour, which is a bit tiring due to the slowness with which the supposed "conspiracy" is revealed, more tolerable.
“ The film is no Shawshank Redemption, Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator etc (my favourite films along with four lions :P) but is just as entertaining.
“ Instead we get one of the most gruellingly tedious action montages that I've seen in recent years right up from when they're in the falling building to when the Primes start fighting.
“This film continues for about two hours after you've completely stopped caring what happens, and every time you think it must be nearly over there's another painfully predictable "twist" and an excuse for another twenty minute CGI fight scene indistinguishable from all the others.
“ The main antagonists haven't performed well enough to create an epic ending to the franchise In another point of view, however, this film was fairly enjoyable and the script was written very well.
“ Bay throughly destroys Chicago in an epic action packed battle and it's action packed to the point where I just don't care.
“Complaining about plot holes in transformers is pointless.
“ First of all, I would like to point out how predictable this film was.
“In my opinion Transformers:Dark of the Moon is the dullest and worst of the three.
“ Its a great experience to just sitback, wear 3D glasses and enjoy the action of Transformers 3 as well as its ridiculously epic score and repetitive playing of Linkin Park's "Iridescent" to full effect.
“ All I really wanted out of Dark of the Moon was good action and possibly some humorous scenes that would make it an enjoyable time in theaters.
“ The only reason I went to see this dumb movies and waste my money was because the blogs and a lot of people (not critics)were saying it was the best of the three films.
“Thankfully the film never becomes too offensive unlike the last, making for an enjoyable final act as Chicago is destroyed.
“ Great for the eyes, dull for the brain .
“ The climactic threat is quite intense, and in the midst of it, these two provide a little relief.
“ The first hour is boring and almost a completely different movie with hardly any robots or action.
“ The film has an enforced, but gradually boring, repetitive, and agonizing effect.
“ Great special effects, a lot of adrenaline, serious plot holes .
“ Boring/cliché jokes.
“The story by Ehren Kruger is surprisingly engrossing, albeit flimsy.
“Anyhow enough about the ho-hum editing lets move onto the real reason everyone came to see this movie.
“ It was very long, but I still enjoyed it.
“Sure the action is amazing in this film, but like a lot of Bays films (action, romance, more action, more romance ZZZzzzzz) the same old tired formula springs up and thus we are left scratching our heads with a bag ful of unanswered questions and a giant tinge of disappointment.
“ But when I left the theater, I thought WOW!
“ Some may complain this movie has too much visual flare for your brain to process, even more so in 3d, but this has set a new bar in the eyegasm genre, and it's damn entertaining to watch.
“ DOTM, unlike its predecessor is a more intense and emotional movie and is obviously shown in the seriousness of war and the loss of lovable characters.
“ It was over-long and ultimately rather pointless...
“In conclusion, this is a very entertaining film, flooded with action.
“ From beginning to end, Transformers 3 was 2hrs and 45mins of explosions, CGI, more explosions and one of the most disjointed, badly acted, horribly written pieces of dredge I've ever seen.
“ Hi,I saw the other two, first one was entertaining, second one was awkward and I just stayed up late to watch this third one.........
“I'm not the greatest movie reviewer, but even I am smarter enough to know that this movie was a waste of my time.
“ The drain of light, making a dull screen image, can be mitigated if theaters were willing to pay extra for bulbs that burn out quickly.
“ Breathtaking in 3D sometimes.
“ Also the Michael Bay trademark explosions are there, a lot of them to be exact, even more than in the previous installments in the series I'd say, but this only makes the action scenes more entertaining.
“ The best answer that I can give is that the film feels too chaotic and messy in its storytelling for it to become truly enjoyable.
“ On the one hand, you have some of the most exciting and innovative action set pieces, not to mention some seriously impressive CGI which really sells the idea of robots disguised as various transport vehicles.
“ This is for anyone thinking they might go see this horrible waste of film- donate the money to charity.
“ Of course, in true Michael Bay style, there are a lot of explosions and much destruction, but also there is a solid storyline that features a brilliant and totally unexpected twist!
“ I didn't find the story particularly engaging, and the action was terribly difficult to follow because all the Transformers looked the same.
“ Terrible waste of money and time.
“ In fact Megatron and Shockwave are absolute aberrations as Transformers in dark of the moon .. utter waste of time, metal and oil What was the point of the cube and the pyramid contraption in the other films if the main point of the trilogy was about a space bridge?!
“) Of course the visuals were stunning and action sequences top-notch (we can always count on that from Bay).
“ There are a few twists and turns in the story, but very predictable ones.
“ They did a great job shooting them from when they are cars to when they turn in to the transformers, and the angles make all the difference with such stunning sequences and the viewers are able to picture how huge these transformers are really meant to be.
“ Dark of the Moon is too long and should have been a fun two hour film, it focuses on a human characters too much, including a boring and unfunny montage of Sam going to job interviews.
“ It is empty and lacking atmosphere, heart and intelligence while it rushes to throw as much action and money onto the screen as possible – whether the audience care about what they are seeing or not.
“After leaving the cinema, we had both agreed that the film was worth watching, even though we did enjoy TF2 (UNLIKE OTHERS).
“ I wanted this movie to be a fun action packed movie that played to Michael Bay's strengths (Lets face the facts , Michael Bay's main strength is that he's good at directing over the top action scenes) , to be fair the movie offers what I and the majority of the audience wanted ...
“At two-and-a-half hours in length, 'Dark of the Moon' is just a long, tedious film to watch, which is primarily down to the films incredibly disjointed plot.
“ I'm all up for leaving my brain at the door, but when you ask me to do that for nearly 3 hours, where I'm bored the hell out of my mind for 2/3 of that, you can count me out.
“ Throughout the film locations pops to life, from the Cybertron-War at the opening, to the intense Motorway chase and the mind-blowing, hour long Chicago climax that will knock you off your seat.
“ Not an overly loud, sex joke ridden mess, but an action packed, well acted, a**-kicking action flick.
“ A horrible actress, pretentious character and a so obnoxiously unnecessary role the movie would have been two stars better if she were not there at all.
“ This third film opens with a surprisingly engaging rewriting of history to place the Transformers at the heart of historical events from the middle of the last century.
“ But if the idea of another Transformers film already has you rolling your eyes and yawning, I say skip it.
“ Way too long for such a simple plot6.
“ I know that Michael Bay is the king of crap, and in that regard slamming one of his movies for being a jumbled mess is probably pointless.
“Like I said, there isn't much of a story here, and what story there is gets very predictable.
“ The action scenes are breathtaking, the 3D visuals are arguably the best since 'AVATAR' and the comedy for the most part is very funny.
“You have action, you have fast paced action and you have mindless action.
“ The second act dragged a bit, but the engrossing act one and the frantic act three with the epic destruction of Chicago in amazing 3D, more than make up for act two's mistakes.
“ A meaningless pretentious bitch telling me what to think?
“ As for other new cast members, John Malkovich as Sam's new boss ultimately goes nowhere other than a few unnecessary gags, however Frances McDormand is highly enjoyable as the government agent in charge of the Autobots, and Patrick Dempsey plays an intriguing human chameleon working for the Decepticons.
“ I was able to enjoy the moments that were truly enjoyable, and question what was...
“ The action was drawn out boooring!
“ This has to be one of the worst movies filmed or released in 2011.
“ The problem with "Dark of the Moon" isn't because of the story or acting (we expected that since day one), it's because it takes a millennium to get going, the action scenes are way too repetitive, and the resolution always leaves something to be desired.
“ In short, it is trash, a joke, an immature disjointed jerk-off visual puke.
“ I have to confess something; while a lot of people say Bay's sense of humor is overdone or foolish, I find it strangely entertaining.
“After watching one-and-a-half Transformers movies, I had hoped that Michael Bay would break away from his tradition of terrible plots, cheesy dialogue, boring action saturated with explosions and cliché characters, thereby making something that resembled an enjoyable movie.
“ The clarity of the action allows for some truly stunning set pieces.
“ So therefore the whole film is pointless, unrealistic and a shambles.
“The story is once again pretty simple but things still seem to get very convoluted and hard to follow (in classic Michael Bay fashion).
“ There was pointless scenes around the last half of the film that made it a really long, boring film.
“ But, if your interested in a story behind the action, or characters who have depth and aren't just created for cheap laughs, or human heros that manage to show maturity rather than hysterical tantrums, then you, like I, will find this a waste of time.
“ It wasn't perfect, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and it is firmly part of my blu-ray collection.
“ The plot is as always very confusing and badly told, and the climax is long and noisy, which one can say is positive, though again - I felt tired at the end, being the film is very loud and way too long (a huge Michael Bay issue).
“ In the end the film is probably good if you enjoy about a good 3 minutes of an amazing ass and a whole load of tedious actionTry not to burst out laughing at the end =D.
“ It had nice special effects and all, but the story was really confusing.
“Difficult to follow, and needing referral to other content, to be watched.
“ What it has is cliché.
“But from there on out its an action packed thrill ride.
“ It was way too long, there was no plot, it was just awful!
“ Two of them involving Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf)and Bumblebee (offered in slo-mo to make them even more exciting) and another one with Sam and Starscream.
“The story could have been interesting, if they would have focused on it instead of slow motion explosions and long, boring scenes that include being slung through a building by a robotic snake for what seemed like an eternity.
“ Your enjoyment of this is likely dependent on how you enjoyed the previous instalments's humour: if you enjoyed it you'll like this, if you didn't then you probably won't.
“ Way too long, 90 min.
“ Pros action packed.
“ Very bright, dynamic action, which claims to be one of the most exciting blockbusters of the summer season.
“ After the debacle of the second in the series, 2009's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the fans and general audience wanted a Tranformers film that was as thrilling, funny, and silly as the first.
“ The producers have also obviously realised that the audience wants to see a more detailed, ie, slower, transformation of Autobots and Decepticons from their robot mode to their alternate mode, and the special effects team have done that splendidly!
“ The first "Transformers" was an enjoyable experience back in 2007.
“ With Michael Bay's epic realistic effects, and the soundtrack from Steve Jablonsky, this movie is so worth watching.
“ Cliché after cliché and the girl they have playing Sam's girlfriend is totally useless, she is nothing but eye candy the whole movie and then at the end they give her a few lines to try and make her character matter.
“ This movie took real life events and adds them into a story that is intense and captivating.
“ No story and had to sit for 2.5 hrs felt like going out of theater.
“ Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is absolutely stunning eye-candy as Sam's new squeeze Carly, and she wisely does not even attempt to act.
“ Very entertaining.
“ Big, loud and empty .
“ The movie had no part in trying to recreate history thats what worked for The Watchmen, really a pointless first half and why couldn't this be the first movie?
“ This movie is obviously an action packed movie and people should accept it for what it is.
“ This film dragged.
“ The best thing about these movies is how they look, how well the transformers integrate into the real-life footage to make a compelling action sequence.
“Even with some wrongs here and there its an action packed fantastic movie and if you loved the previous ones you will LOVE this one.
“ What a bore.
“Megan Fox's replacement (newcomer Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) didn't quite fill in the void she left behind (because Fox was a little more active and a headstrong female figure than what Rosie could possibly pull), the script could have improved by a tiny percentile, and the acting needed several tweaks, but in the wake of every destruction on-screen, my adrenaline just kept growing higher.
“ But I don't know if they even gave answers to this stuff because the plot was so uninteresting it lost me a lot.
“) Malkovich's character as Sam's new boss was pointless and even offensive at times and the choice of Patrick Dempsey as the human villain was doubtful.
“The plot was disjointed, not believable, and just plain horrible.
“ This film is certainly an outstanding visual spectacle that boasts some of the most impressive, fluid and stunning cgi sequences I've ever seen.
“ Very pointless.
“but that is precisely what makes it moderately entertaining despite its mediocrity.
“ How can a film have so many special effects, some pretty impressive acting talent (no I don't mean the leads) and still manage to feel so overly long and , let's face it, boring.
“ "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" is a summer movie after all, whether just saying that is cliché or not.
“ The theme of betrayal between robots and even humans are stressed too which further makes the story interesting as it flows on an exciting journey.
“ And well it was one of the most disappointing things that I ever saw in my life(I mean, I saw a big part of the movie but I fall asleep in the middle ).
“ This film transforms into a snooze fest.
“ I really cannot understand people or critics who try to take an action packed movie really really seriously and blame everything that goes on on the director.
“ These movies are so extremely successful for one reason: it's exciting to watch the Autobots fight the Decepticons.
“ Michael bay is a visionary when it comes to action, y'all want to complain about his directing and the fact that he likes explosions and blowing stuff up, that is what makes his movies so much fun and entertaining, honestly if anyone else was directing these movies they would straight up suck, there wouldn't have even been a second or third one if Michael bay wasn't the director.
“The film is visually stunning through the action sequences.
“ However, if you want to experience bad acting throughout, listen to dubbed dialogue, watch disjointed scenes, sit through never-ending Robot battles, listen to mumbling dialogue when it isn't dubbed and be exposed to a very weak script, then this is for you (don't hold back Bob, tell us how you really feel).
“ Instead, leave in the bits that are totally pointless, like Sam's parents and the rubbish actress with rubber lips.
“At a race down a freeway, the yellow camaro is forced to turn into Bumblebee, Bumblebee reassembles itself back into a vehicle in mid-flight (all in slow mo) and saves Sam.
“ It takes an absolute age for anything exciting to happen.
“ This was still a waste of my money.
“ I give the film a solid 9 out of 10 because I can value Transformers for what it really is: an entertaining summer blockbuster movie fully utilising today's technology in terms of audio and visual effects.
“ Transformers Dark of The Moon is as excellent as any other movie in the series, it contains the action, romance, comedy and will have you sitting on the edge of your seat all the way through.
“ And as you likely have guessed, the film is far too long for its own good.
“ This film has so much action and the sound effects are so intense that it keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire film!
“ I just saw this movie tonight in the theatre with my father, and I enjoyed it a lot.
“ The movie is extremely entertaining, and a visual masterpiece.
“ The plot is very dull and very uninteresting and I find it incredibly hard to believe that Sam witwicky would abandon the girl that HE SAVED THE WORLD WITH for another girl so quickly.
“Similarly the story is all over the place, I would suggest not paying too much attention to it as it wasn't very good, only complex and confusing.
“ While Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson do not add anything fresh in their third appearance, adding John Malkovich and Kevin Dunn along with John Turturro does slow down the pace to some well received lighter moments.
“ But, what lead me to believe that I was in for a movie with an intriguing plot, I do not know.
“Bottom Line is, this movie is entertaining, from the visual and audio effects alone, regardless of plot or acting.
“ On the side of the humans, it is Patrick Dempsey's Dylan, boss of leading man Sam Witwicky's new and equally Megan Fox-hot girlfriend Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) who turns out to be unexpectedly intriguing.
“ This is for anyone thinking they might go see this horrible waste of film- donate the money to charity.
“ The first movie was okay.. generic, but exciting.
“ But still to me Dark of the Moon is the best and most entertaining film in the trilogy and I'm truly sad to see Michael Bay and Shia Labeouf leave the franchise
“ Cliché as is the fact that every villain (Decepticon) cannot kill ANYONE.
“ This movie is nearly three hours of very nice explosions and dynamic fight scenes.
“ The first Transformers movie was fun, silly but highly enjoyable.
“ Also what almost made me gouge my eyes out were the incredibly ridiculous, horrible and disjointed battle scenes.
“ This dragged the story in the middle.
“ I must admit that the second half pulled me in and had me on the edge of my seat.
“This piece of crap will make puke to anyone with some taste, just for the grotesque waste of money and production in order to bore you for almost 3 hours with stupid jokes and a "story" that you can tell (and for what) in nearly 20 low quality minutes of your time...
“ Expect an entertaining, visually and audibly stimulating movie, and your expectations will be exceeded.
“ Either way, there are moments of jaw dropping stunts mixed with visual effects that make you sit on the edge of your seat.
“ The plot at points is ridiculously mundane.
“ It's just an exciting ride that is packed with action, explosions, laughs, twists and turns, and heart.
“In conclusion, if you are looking for an action packed movie with stunning 3D CGI effects and explosions to watch and ENJOY go watch transformers.
“ And while still not up to the inaugural's standard, the newest release, "Transformers: Dark Of the Moon," is a decent addition and captures - somewhat - that movie's intense action scenes, as well as much of the humor.
“ The film utilises a cliché'd romance between its main star and his sweetheart to motivate many of his actions and it does not work.
“ His girlfriend problems and embarrassing parents boring and we really couldn't care that much about how he feels unappreciated for saving the world twice.
“ There is so much going on, it is hard to follow at times.
“ It is predictable at times and filled with directing clichés.
“ Entertaining than Revenge of The Fallen.
“s the twists, character fates, and ending are breathtaking!
“To the rest of us, the mundane, the ordinary people, who enjoy a no-brainer, a popcorn flick, and who are not in their crisis-something years, who enjoy a summer flick for what it is, and not for what we'd want it to be (maybe as a substitute for our imperfect lives), I'd like to say if you want to watch a good movie with great visuals and intense action sequences, then this film will do you just fine.
“ terrible, waste of time and money .
“ But this Bay-hem is also utterly, absolutely thrilling, and features quite possibly some of the most intense action sequences you'll see on the big screen this year.
“then again returns back to end on a positive note..About the positives-this film has some jaw dropping mind blowing action sequences.
“ I wish I walked out sooner.
“Number Three starts off well - the linking with real twentieth century history is a nice touch, but then the usual set of two dimensional 'heroes' take over and any promise turns to cliché.
“I think there aré better ways to spend a couple of hundred million, instead of this senseless and pointless "entertainment"I'm sure it will make tons Of money....
“ Too much graphics, too intense, too long.
“This one starts with endless scenes of Shia LaBeouf's new love life, ends with a cheap message from Optimus which makes us wonder what was there any different from TF1 and TF2, and the middle is a clusterfck of useless characters, pointless drama/jokes scenes and slow motions which show us nothing we haven't seen before.
“ was entertaining, I felt no time.
“ Looking back, it is a bad movie, but it was full of so much eye candy that I found it highly entertaining and I didn't really analyze its faults as I should have.
“ The visuals are breathtaking.
“ 3 transformers movies, and that third one is quite better then the precedent ( and since it was rise of the fallen was one of the worst movie of 2009, its was not very difficult to top).
“There seemed to be no goal to the film other than mind fluff; expensive, loud, and annoyingly repetitive mind fluff.
“ But this movie fails to entertain, it has no drive, no story, and no spark.
“ Other breathtakingly exciting extended setpieces include one where Sam and series regular Lennox (Josh Duhamel) are dangling off a metal rod whose sharp end is lodged inside a Decepticon, and another where Optimus Prime faces off against a group of Decepticons led by wounded leader Megatron who makes a return from the previous film.
“ Maybe I was just a bit tired when I saw it, but one thing a Transformers film shouldn't be is boring, and sadly, this one was.
“ Admittedly, I thought it would be impossible for Michael Bay to make a more terrible film than Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but here it is
154 minutes of noisy, CGI-filled crap that easily ranks amongst the very worst movies I have ever seen.
“ You could consider it as art: beautiful but mind-bogglingly confusing.
“ This part of the film really dragged on far too long.
“ The first movie was cute and entertaining.
“ At least TF2 didn't try to have a plot (which is probably due to the fact that the script wasn't even finished when they began shooting the film), and at least it was entertaining.
“" That's fine, I can respect that because aside from the pretentious I-only-watch-Oscar-worthy-movies film buffs, that's a guilty pleasure we all get from time to time.
“ From the middle to end this movie reaches the sheer adrenaline that was presented to the audience in the series opener.
“ What would make it more exciting would be getting rid of a human lead and just focus on the "robots in disguise" and to keep the seriousness and lighthearted humor.
“ The original "Transformers" movie was not bad, but this sequel is quite simply one of the worst movies ever made.
“ Obvious flaws are abundant, but it's still worth the watch.
“ The action sequences are stunning and probably the reason why most people stayed until the end; though cutting the movie down to 90 minutes would have greatly improved it.
“ It has for instance the classical dumb cliché of the villain giving exposition to one of the main characters about how they will take over the world for no apparent reason.
“ From there, the plot continues to thicken, all the way up to a preposterously boring climax which stretches a seemingly endless forty-five-minute stretch and wrapping up with a cold, lifeless halt instead of a rousing conclusion.
“ When this film reached it's natural set piece finale and it still had an hour to run I just got up and walked out, and that was the first time in my life I've ever done that.
“ Since I was a kid, I remember the Transformer toys and these Transformer movies make it just so much more exciting.
“ The SF prologue, including a nice alternate history reveal during the Apollo 11 EVA, showcases some breathtaking 3D framing and depth design.
“ I know some super-fans have been disappointed by these films, but if you're looking for a fun summer movie, with REALLY great action, and sequences that are simply exciting to watch, check out this movie.
“ The 3D is also implement in such dazzling array and the action packed set pieces are done with aplomb.
“ I can't say I really loved any of them, most of them are just forgettable, but Sam Witwicky I did find to be enjoyable.
“The special effects are simply breathtaking and jaw dropping.
“ Agent Simmons even more over the top and unbelievable than in the previous movies, the two small transformers as cliché sidekicks, the stupid "espionage watch" which constantly hinders Witwicky in actually doing some real espionage, the ridiculous behavior at the job interviews, ...
“ Some parts of the story were all too predictable.
“ The other tracks in the soundtrack were just boring as they were the same Transformers melody that we've been hearing since 2007.
“ Enjoyable and Action Packed, .
“ A complete waste of the audience's time.
“ A complete waste of time .
“ The story is a bit confusing, with one too many twists near the end and the script needed work as is the case with most of these types of movies.
“ It's big, loud and empty.
“The End of the Page recommendation: Transformers: Dark of the Moon starts slow, goes out with a bang and delivers surface entertainment for the middle school crowd.
“ I mean, how long could one possibly drag out the notion of a bunch of robots fighting each other?
“ The destruction of Chicago, and intense, frantic action, one sequence after another.
“ Furthermore, the movie simply is too long.
“ We enjoyed the graphics, the action, special effects, the cast (read: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley :-) )and the non complex (but very entertaining) storyline.
“"Transformers 3: The Dark Side of the Moon" - an incredible and breathtaking spectacle, captivating fiction thriller with a very good drama as well as a humorous element.
“ No - It does not work, and Sam Whitwhickey's puerile salivatings and palpitations and teenage jealousy rages are just not believable, the character Carly is simply not believable, she's a card-bored cutout.
“ No plot No acting No direction whatsoever!
“ The only thinks that make this movie a 3 are a acceptable performance (not great or amazing) by Patrick Dempsey, the 3D on the beginning, Shia LaBeouf (but I'm getting to start bored by these actor personalities in his roles).
“ Transformers 3 was a colossal waste of my time.
“ I just took my brother to see the latest film in Michael Bay's blockbuster Transformers series and I must say that he and I enjoyed it just as much, or probably even better than the first two.
“ The first transformer movie lived up to my expectations, it was entertaining.
“ I visited the IMAX 3D version today and the visuals were absolutely stunning.
“ The movie had no plot, mellow dramatic action, annoying characters, failed attempts at comedy, and bad acting to top it all off.
“ Dark of the moon is breathtaking.
“Difficult to follow action sequences.
“ Entertaining you with some badass robot action!
“ It's old wine, that comes intact with, as mentioned before, stunning Special Effects, good 3D & Effective Direction, working on it's advantage.
“ I can't say I didn't enjoy it, it was full of fun moments, comic situations and markable characters which makes it overall really entertaining to watch.
“ And it ends in the same cliché one would expect.
“ The CGI was brilliant and the action was still breathtaking.
“Still, despite of all that negative stuff, it was entertaining and since I wasn't expecting anything more than a huge amount of whoopass Autobot style and seeing how they destroy Chicago, I was happy with what I saw!
“In the end this really is a complete waste of time.
“ Nevertheless, Fast Five was a much more entertaining movie with a good plot development and just the right amount of action.
“I decided to watch Transformers: Dark of the Moon on its 3-D version (more because of a schedule convenience than because of my personal taste), and even though that did not contribute to the experience very much, it could achieve something unexpected: moderate Bay's frantic style.
“ Nothing has changed or at least improved in these movies by the now third installment, and it's getting incredibly predictable and annoying, and it's a bad sign when something gets more annoying with each installment, and goes on LONGER than before with each new installment.
“ A sad waste of money, time and effort.
“ Revenge of the Fallen had a story that was silly and contrived, it was hard to take seriously.
“ Sure, there is lots of noise and stuff, but it's all so overblown that it's difficult to get a handle on anything, making what should be exciting, well, boring.
“ The last 40 minutes was action packed and very well done.
“ By no means a brilliant movie, even by 'dumb-action' standards, but leave your mind and maturity at the door and you'll be in for an entertaining two and a half hours.
“ Michael Bay success formula for the Transformers trilogy: 1)Stunning CGI/poor story; 2)Sam Witwicky somehow steps on a Decepticon plan or simply that plan is thrown at his face; 3)A war between Autobots and Decepticons begins for the sake of mankind; 4)A hot girl in an all apocalyptic-war scenario only to show her goods; 5)Finally Optimus Prime comes to the rescue and saves the day.
“ So the film goes on maybe for a bit too long, it is still very enjoyable.
“ collapsing buildings/robots avoid humans, a metallic building structure hangs in the air in a ridiculous position, the scientist robot sucks a whole metal PLANET through a portal right next to earth and nothing happens (and btw first the summoning is interrupted and there is a planet cut in half near earth, with a plainly cut surface at the intersection, and then the summoning is restored and it CONTINUES to come out of the portal.
“ The action sequences were highly boring (oddly) and seemed highly repetitive.
“ Boring .
“ Also, I think the only thing that could really be considered an upside to this film, is all the action, it was fast paced, filmed fairly well and in pretty god detail, editing seemed fairly poor though.
“Film3D also boasts stunning visual effects, excellent operator and a very high quality soundtrack.
“ The visuals are stunning, the battles are intense, and the final climatic battle between Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime, and Megatron was my absolute favorite part of the whole movie.
“all in all i give this a good 8/10 as it was a thoroughly enjoyable cinema experience and i hope for another entry in the series which im sure will happen if this is as successful financially as the second & first films.
“the visual effects and the fight scenes were stunning and just to experience that on the big screen is very particular, featuring one of the most breathtaking scenery of giant robots fighting each other on 3-D.
“ The music comes at the right time, rushing adrenaline through my veins.
“that was worst movie in my life...
“ Reasonable but too drawn out .
“ If you think Transformers 2 was a empty soul with a overdue makeup, skip this one into TV or PirateBay.
“ However if your a movie fan you'll find it boring, same generic speech Optimus always seems to give,same bad toilet humour other than Tudyk and Malkovich and if your was in high school I would enjoy this.
“ It provides a fairly fast paced, action packed movie with awesome special effects and incredible set pieces - probably better to wait until it drops in price and pick it up then.
“ He knows his weakness as a director and knows how to outshine it with his craft, making his movies enjoyable to watchable.
“ The last hour you will be on the edge of your seat.
“ I went with my friend this summer, I have no idea why, but we were so bored!
“ But as for now, this is just another routine, boring popcorn movie.
“ The orgy worthy robot on robot fighting was amazing and exciting.
“ If you are on the edge about seeing this, don't let the rating fool you.
“Overall I think the movie is able to deliver a very entertaining experience.
“ Those movies always had these really long, boring passages with humans fighting other humans that I'd have to sit through in order to get to the good stuff: MAN IN SUIT!
“ The movie starts off with an intriguing premise: that we were aware that an alien spacecraft had crashed in the Sea of Tranquility, and we wanted to go up and get a good look at it.
“ I am not normally a film-geek or bothered by goofs, but the continuity in this one was poor enough to become confusing; Optimus seemed to vary in height between ten feet and skyscraper-tall, and Huntingdon-Whitely's character is apparently able to change her clothes several times in the course of running through war-zones.
“ In the case of "Dark of the Moon," he's upped the emotional and visual stakes to create an engaging feat of blockbuster.
“ The entire movie could be shot in 90 mins or less, but apparently they didn't think so, in which it starts to getting boring at a certain point.
“ Just like the second movie, I felt like some of the scenes were dragged out way too much, which is why I gave it a 7 instead of an 8 or a 9.
“ I loved the plot twists, even though one or two were predictable.
“ The movie's run time is very long, the first hour could've been done in 10 minutes.
“ Le beof what ever his name is was comical in the first 2 films and next to fox was just about worth watching but in this movie he was pointless, had very little dialogue and i found myself not caring what happened to him.
“Eye popping SFX, awesome 3d & an intriguing storyline.
“The pacing between scenes (especially the action and story scenes) is slow and jarring, one minute your looking at gorgeous CGI scenes and the next your watching Shia have a meltdown over a junker.
“Michael Bay delivers "Transformers: Dark of the Moon", perhaps the single most entertaining pieces of misogynistic, exploitative filth I've ever seen.
“ There is also something compelling about the tying in of the space race with the Transformer mythos – though this, as I will later suggest, is also taken too far and tips over into offensiveness.
“ Because it's a dull film.
“ It's worth watching for some good entertainment.
“ The start was probably the most exciting part, seeing Rose's ass.
“ It is too long, and it does make some unforgivable decisions regarding Transformer characters, so it feels less perfect in those regards.
“Dark of the moon is an enjoyable action film, and to be fair it's not nearly as bad as some overwrought critics have said it is.
“ Full of flaws, but still entertaining.
“Other than the weight of the shutter glasses over a 2.5 hour period, I found myself wonderfully immersed in the story and visuals rather than being constantly pulled out of the story by Marx Bros-esque face slapping 3D.
“When the first live action movie came along I was pleasantly surprised, particularly at the script being as snappy as it was.
“ I brought this up earlier, but the characters are all very bland and often I didn't really find myself caring what happened to them.
“ But to be fair, I went back and watched the last part about three times because I kept falling asleep.
“ The film is overly long and HUGELY clichéd (every cliché in the book).
“ I guess the special effects are fantastic but it's effect is significantly lessened as there is no plot line to back it up.
“This movie was way too long with unending action scenes.
“ Her performances are completely dull, her face couldn't look more boring.
“ The Transformers franchise still has a few flaws, but Dark of the Moon is a decent addition to the franchise and an enjoyable summer blockbuster overall.
“ Michael Bay certainly doubled down on why the films have been so popular, but it seems like he forgot to make it a little more enjoyable.
“ The first action scene is really boring and forgettable.
“ Many more baddies join the fight, especially Shockwave, a really nasty Decepticon + a few more Autobots + an intriguing story line that keeps you at the edge of your cinema seat.
“ The action is as always intense and over the top.
“Yes, it was a little sub par on plot and substance, but i enjoyed it for what it is-a summer Michael Bay movie.
“Watching Dark of the Moon feels like an endurance test by the time it finishes, this is due to a ridiculously drawn out battle set in Chicago for the climax.
“ She is boring and not a good actress.
“In summary, the film's three hours of non-narrative battle footage in which machines are burned, wrecked, and incinerated was just a bit too much for me to handle without the occasional glimpse into the depths of humanity.
“ It's slow and mysterious at first and until the action picks up not a lot happens.
“ Hollow, superfluous, boring, cliché....
“ In between the constant on-screen destruction important plot-points are information is seemingly thrown at the audience hoping to create anything that can be seemingly considered a workable and engaging plot.
“ But the storyline, acting, stupid soppy scenes and inappropriate credits music are ridiculous, aggravating and tedious.
“ No plot or meaningful dialogue, just explosions!
“beautiful and extremely engrossing....
“ If Mikaela (Megan Fox) was there instead, I think she'd be helping Sam try to save Bumble Bee, and she wouldn't be being dragged by Sam.
“ The CGI of all the robots was stunning, in fact the best CGI since Avatar with the 3D being impressive though mainly during the action sequences.
“ Too dull even for (the obviously targeted) teenagers .
“ I loved it and I highly recommend it.
“ To wrap things up, "Dark of the Moon" is simply a great film and definitely worth watching.
“ First part of the movie is story, it gives you answer to all questions and explain every thing it gets quite boring, because it in evolve in Sam boring life and the problems with job,friend, family.
“ The movie is a summer blockbuster, it's a two and a half hour thrilling action ride with a lot of scenes that will make you drop your jaw and bite your fingernails.
“" Well, I went in, and for part of the movie I was kind of enjoying myself, but as soon as the final hour began, whatever enjoyment I felt disappeared and boredom set in.
“ Explosions and no story, Typical Michael Bay.
“ The stories were too confusing that the average moviegoer will eventually get bored and walk out.
“ With a movie it is also a good idea to not try build suspense at every turn, have massive pivotal moments that last 5 seconds and insignificant pointless moments that last 15 minutes.
“ Take reviews from countless pointless CGI infested movies and stick them here.
“ For all its many, many faults, this Transformers movie is fun and thoroughly entertaining.
“ This excuse of a movie had no plot.
“ And these action sequences are of course awesome if you just want straight up kick-ass action, as they're everything fans of blockbuster brutality will get their adrenaline fix over, but it's an incredibly tiresome and painful time getting to them with all the unnecessary filler scenes of immature comedy that drag on and on and serve no ultimate purpose.
“ Instead she's been replaced ever so quickly by some talentless, dull as dishwater, eye candy that isn't even that attractive.
“but it's still entertaining as hell.
“ The last hour is peppered with loud cacophonous dumb action, where, for all it matters, every robot is hitting every robot, and it becomes tiresome to figure which ones are the good ones, and frankly speaking, you would hardly care.
“ The movie lasted a while mainly because of the tedious action scenes and Characters were quite forgettable, as they were also weirdly designed.
“ They rarely amaze, and there's little sense of grandeur, its all too busy, too much smoke and flying bits, and too tedious.
“ Predictable, No clear plot, great graphics .
“ In fact there were scenes where there was slow-motion of the action, so I could see the action even more, actually happening and it was much more enjoyable as a result.
“ For the casual viewer the sight of one machine fighting another is bound to be confusing – the sight of one machine fighting another for half-an-hour is enough to give you a headache.
“ There were some scenes that were confusing and made me lose track of where the film is heading.
“ It's got all the testosterone induced fight scenes an adrenaline junky could ever ask for.
“ are SO sad, so banal and routine that you know the whole phrase as soon as character says first word.
“ The dialogue is stupid and formulaic, the film is much too long and the story is choppy and confused complete with a messy ending.
“ No question, the effects are great (and would have been equally so in 2D), but the plot is very disjointed, with many odd segments that really make no sense, even when well done.
“ The problem is that without a story I cared 2 cents about, the big explosions get pretty boring pretty fast.
“ It made the battles much more enjoyable, and made the movie way better.
“ The best thing abt this movie is the stunning visual effects.
“ However, with low expectations i was very surprised that is was really enjoyable.
“ There is no plot continuation whatsoever so there is no need to watch the previous two titles.
“ Sam reaches new levels of annoying in this movie, and the dialogue is contrived and insulting; this is highlighted by the obvious and contrived "homage" lines throughout the movie -- Sentinel saying "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.." and Bumble Bee saying to Sam, "I am and always will be your friend.
“ There is a script, and the funny part is that I thoroughly enjoyed it.
“ Okay, right, the plot is confusing.
“ Shia Labeouf, John Turturro, John Malkovich and Alan Tudyk was enjoyable to watch.
“ But after a while with things constantly blowing up and stuff flying around everywhere for a long period of time it gets tiresome.
“Some of the battle scenes are mind blowing especially when viewed on blu ray.
“ A longtime composer Steve Jablonsky offered to the audience (not the first time), another stunning soundtrack.
“ A much darker, thrilling film that's based on a toy lineup.
“ The story is just so cliché and predictable and there is almost no character development in this.
“ While most of the human characters are dull, another major disappointment is that you won't get to see much of the Transformers Michael Bay has a reputation of making expensive lavish with no heart.
“ Sam and Bumblebee's relationship is specifically enjoyable, as it was in the first film.
“ My favorite scene is in the beginning when it shows actual footage of the moon launch because it is fascinating to see how many people were so eager to witness that back then.
“ An utter waste of time .
“ Even the last hour of the film with the Chicago fight is so tedious to watch.
“ I actually enjoyed it.
“This film is not recommended, please don't waste time or money; wait for the DVD if it's that essential in life to see.
“ The action is exciting this time around and they really hit home with some fresh ideas for some of the action sequence.
“ Had the fat been trimmed and the extremes of goody comedy and then humans disintegrated been better balanced, we may have had a very enjoyable movie on our hands.
“Effort has been put into resisting the temptation to have too many robots show up on screen pulverizing each other in close combat, and having Bay's slow motion to show off some cool stunts involving humans and robots (Bumblebee seems to be the favourite to have to slow down), but for all the loud, mind numbing and eardrum busting action going all around during the action sequences, there's this distinct lack of villainy in the movie, with action sequences being overly long and losing their impact and focus.
“ Some of the editing is confusing, mostly it adds to the very rapid pace of the film.
“ This isn't what you're looking for, specially if you are explosion, adrenaline and testosterone intolerant.
“Whilst doing his boring work duties,Sam is confronted by a man who claims to be an ex-N.
“ Well I was wrong, this movie was beyond boring!
“ I felt it was a tad overly-long and drawn out.
“It is certainly an action packed film which is enough for me.
“ However, the Storyline and some other aspect's of the Movie though were very disappointing and quite confusing.
“ This one has a good balance; brief enjoyable humor underscored by a sinister undertone.
“ Clocking in at just over two and a half hours, all the other crap can get you bored quickly.
“ The decisions of the US officials were idiotic and only served to drag out the film.
“ I mean, it wasn't bad, I actually enjoyed it.
“ No plot whatsoever, Megan Fox's body was being thrown on us for the film to succeed, about a million goofs and mistakes regarding "the big war in Egypt" - (Believe me, I know, I'm an Egyptian).
“ It is just a bunch of mindless special effects one after the other, dragging on for what seemed eternity, I tried playing it at 1.5x speed, but even then it was just boring (seemed like the action scenes were on a loop), I cannot believe people sit through 3 hours of this ****!
“ I SPENT £15 TO SEE THAT LOAD OF TOSH: I FEEL BETRAYED, Recommend you don't waste the time or your money.
“ The relatively cheap and undignified deaths of Starscream, Megatron and Shockwave was totally unexpected.
“The movie is great up until the point in drags too long and becomes predictable at times.
“ Oh and the 3D, please make a normal 2D movie we have enjoyed it for years and will still enjoy it in that way cause 3D really is not 3D its converted 3D and the audience know about it.
“ Worth watching....
“ All of the characters seemed extremely flat and the twists were predictable.
“ I cant believe how bad the scenes were between the new bird (who is hot and English and cant act) and Sam, so cheesy, so pointless.
“ It can be an entertaining thrill ride can knows what audience it wants to please.
“ Just nonsensical convolution, bad acting, boring action, and robots that are not robots because they: have human vocal chords, speak human slang, drool, have grey hair, wear a cape, age, get fat, speak with human regional accents, bleed, roar like a tiger, talk like a teenager.
“ Only the second half is worth watching.
“ It works and it's exciting.
“ Her replacement was flat dull and boring and brought nothing to the film.
“ Story is confusing, the action scenes hollow, the characters one-dimensional, the special effects no longer special, and to make matters worse it goes on forever.
“So all in all Transformers: Dark of the Moon was an enjoyable film.
“As a film, this does start off decent but becomes tiresome at some points and drags on heavy as these films tend to do.
“ Overall, people were left with a confusing/messed up story and the usual CGI and explosion fest typical of a Michael Bay movie.
“I also enjoyed it in Forrest Gump!
“ But the battle scenes between the robots is really impressive and I'm shocked to admit that I was on the edge of my seat watching it all.
“ The CGI effects are phenomenal, as they have continued to be for the series and the Transformers are as enjoyable as ever.
“ All in all, very entertaining, despite the run-time (all Michael Bay movies are long) and an IMAX 3D experience not to be missed.
“ Although there is the alternate universe being described, it's still the same cliché footage we've seen over and over.
“ And then for the last half you have literally all action with little to no scenes of relief, it's all just intense action that they expect you to be interested by because of the back story...
“ The action was intense.
“It wasn't amazing, but it was enjoyable, and from a story perspective (as I'm not going to go so far as to call it a plot) it did seem to have the best pacing of the trilogy.
“The special effects in this film like Buildings collapsing and of course the Autobots fighting with the Decepticons is intense.
“again you would think Transformers DOTM: (D+) I wanted to leave before the movie was an hour into it.
“ "US$1 million was spent during the two days of filming at the Milwaukee Art Museum" obscene: this 'film' suffers from slow and inopportune development, which somehow, and this needs closer analysis, turns a 3 hour immersive 3D experience into a yawn; no tension is built up; attempts at humor subvert any rapport; inappropriate extremes of emotionality make several scenes overlong and laughable.
“ That last portion in Chicago was just one long bore as you get to watch people paragliding, people in collapsing building and then you see Optimus and think, "Oh boy, now the action begins!
“ 8 out of 10 because it was entertaining.
“ I never really cared for these people, at least not in the way I cared for the Transformers, particularly the Autobots, and what's oddest to me is that the newest additions to the cast of characters, like Carly, were the most intriguing and interesting.
“ This isn't a great movie, but it's wildly entertaining.
“ There were some unreal moments in the movie that should have been on the cutting floor of the editing, particularly when Carly stands up in the heat of an intense battle scene as she gets an idea, and somehow her hair blows in the wind as she pouts ...
“ Twenty minutes of drawn out slow motion giant robots fighting in mid air could still be pretty cool.
“ Nice slow mo's, nice legs (courtesy of some new hottie) and great musclecars.
“Plot - infantile at best; Dialogue - banal (and couldn't understand Shia at all); Bad guys - predictable; Cameos - people turning up for no apparent reason.
“ Richard roper recently said it was the worst movie he had seen all year, despite the fact that he had given the film a D and given at least two other movies a D- and at least one film and F.
“ Its too long, over the top, pointless and takes a good hour for people to actually understand what the plot is.
“ Again, the problems of the previous installments recur - like the confusion between the good and bad robots in the clashes.
“ Michael Bay obviously abused LaBoeuf's strong points and made his character Sam seem dull by the third instalment.
“" It was a very cliché movie on top of it, and Sam had developed into a cute-guy, hyper-stressed, young-adult with a cliché inferiority complex.
“ Long boring scenes with no creative thought.
“ I didn't like or hate the first movie, the second seemed worse and I basically agreed with the criticism, too loud, too dark (not in theme, hard to see), confusing battle scenes, story holes really so big the story wasn't even on Saturday cartoon level.
“ The first half was kind of cool, but self indulgent, and you could cut most of it out.
“ And all that paired with hard to follow action and dialog, spiced with many cuss words to maybe hide the lack of substance and deliver a shock in a different way?
“ Guys do NOT watch this, it is BORING.
“Title: Transformers: Dark of the Moon Directed by: Micheal Bay Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington – Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, Tyrese Gibson, Ken Jeong & John Malkovich Rated: Rated PG-13 for intense prolonged sequences of sci-fi action violence, mayhem and destruction, and for language, some sexuality and innuendo Rating: 08/10 157 Minutes
“ Die hard worked because it was suspenseful.
“ Rosie Huntington should never have been a part of this, and if you really disagree then someone have messed with the intentions of her casting - cuz she's boring and I can't see what the meaning of her part of the movie is - other than standing here and there in tight dresses.
“GOOD Well, the humor of the first is back (no fart/ball/weed/kid jokes, mainly the type of humor from the first), and it was actually enjoyable instead of stupid like the second (and Sam's parents are slightly restrained also, participating only in the first half).
“I'd still recommend watching it in the theaters - it's a fun action packed film.
“ It is very entertaining and sad in places and funny in others.
“ Far too long, and once you've seen one battle between two gigantic robots you've seen them all.
“ He manages to make three movies that are basically all just carbon copies of each other and make them all at the very least entertaining.
“Overall it was over long, boring, unfunny, confusingly paced, full of unneeded scenes, full of unneeded characters, unwatchable for a second time.
“ The Autobots make their trademark cliché phrases and stuff, and even Starscream sounds fearful of Megatron again, which he didn't in the previous two films which I thought was brave of Bay and it paid off.
“ Oh well, all I have to say is that if it weren't for the Autobots I would have walked out as well.
“ Seriously BORING!
“ Its mind blowing and makes the action and drama scenes much more intense.
“ These events are combined with more historical fiction including Chernobyl and with quality writing could really have taken off somewhere intriguing.
“Special effects - Boring, over long action scenes (that don't contain bot fight as I enjoy them).
“ I never liked the franchise that much, but this one is unwatchable.
“ The first 15 were actually really entertaining.
“ That very hour , being scarce on action and epic battles was surprisingly intriguing for me.
“ Instead, Micheal Bay has upped the ante once more and has created a "film" that not only succeeds in being vapid, obnoxious and offensive, but downright boring.
“Of course, our hero has his typical cliché of a hot girlfriend who just happens to be hot enough to be a Victoria's Secret model (Oh wait!
“ The new girlfriend wasn't hard on the eyes, but all I saw was a pointless character.
“ I almost walked out of hobo with a shotgun (because my moral fibers disagreed with it) and I nearly walked out of this one cause I lost complete track of the story and all I could remember was a bunch of CGI robots destroying Chicago in 3-D.
“ It's a tool in a story-telling toolbox, and since there was no story, the audience is simply and continuously hit over the head with a giant CGI hammer.
“ Yes the parts involving the robots were visually amazing but I wanted more, I left the cinema bored and unsatisfied.
“ In India Hindi dubbed Akshay Kumar voice for optimus prime very very bad and make the movie boring.
“ This is a very long and boring movie that wastes the talents of good actors.
“ There are few scenes worth watching in 3D anyway and most of the biggest explosions can hardly be seen in 3D.
“ The storyline is engaging especially for a film based on a Saturday morning cartoon made to push toys.
“ It definitely makes the movie more enjoyable to watch and it makes you forget that it's almost 3 hours long as well.
“ I can't even contemplate what to think with regards Dempseys character arranging the budget to stop the USA from scouting the moon again, from the increasing number of plot holes that I keep discovering the more I think things over, the fact that some roles in the film are utterly pointless and are only in the film to remind us that yes, Sam does have parents, yes he did date Megan Fox, who has done a runner and gone into hiding, etc .. etc .. ETC .. ETC!!!!!
“ The second half of the movie can be considered exciting.
“ Also, the blood looks very unrealistic so it seems pointless.
“ One of the reasons the 2nd movie is bearable is because of the presence of Megan Fox and now that she's gone, this 3rd installment is just UNBEARABLE replaced with a girl with injected lips.
“ The first Transformers film was silly but enjoyable story, with 2 likable leads, Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox.
“ However, the replacement chick, Rosie Huntington-Whitley, who looks as though she just walked out of an underwear catalogue, doesn't add much.
“ Transformers Dark of Moon- Best or Worst movie ever.
“ The movie is action packed and absolutely entertaining!
“The first 20 minutes of Transformers 3, which tie the ensuing storyline to the first moon landing, are a tour de force of contemporary, big-budget Hollywod filmmaking: dynamic, gripping, utterly stupid, completely absorbing.
“ In places the music is smooth and quiet, but mostly exciting and almost making their way to the bone.
“) less than an hour and a half into the film, and the yawns punctuating the theater during the last battle scene clued me into the fact that I wasn't the only one shifting restlessly in my seat from boredom.
“ And the actors are not that good, mostly because their characters are more shallow than an empty oyster.
“ The battle scenes are long and dull and 90% of the film is buildings toppling over and robot vs robot fights with little character development.
“ The problem was that instead of all of these aspects getting woven together into an enjoyable movie, they were randomly thrown in throughout the film with the hope that they would somehow make a good movie.
“ Unoriginal, clichéd, predictable, and overall a huge letdown.
“ full of explosions and attractive people but no story line what so ever.
“ The sound mix alone is more exciting than anything in the billion-dollar- bore of "Pirates 4.
“ After about an hour or so, I got too tired of watching messy metal parts, explosions, clichés and boring dialogs, that I chose to stop watching the bluray & spend my valuable time by having a nap instead.
“And of course, you'll get the obnoxious lens flares, pointless shaky cam, pointless slow- motion, and Rosie Huntington-Whitely who, quite frankly, can't act her way out of a paper bag.
“The GoodThe best thing about these movies is how they look, how well the transformers integrate into the real-life footage to make a compelling action sequence.
“ It was funny at times, it had me laughing at one point where the joke was long gone and i was still chuckling to myself, the effects were cool although some of the Robots didn't even need to be there, along with the characters.. a few inc. John Malkovich, his character was pointless.. the ending was like a middle finger to those who have watched all three *SPOILER ALERT* Megatron gets conned into killing Sentinel Prime and horribly as well.. the gigantaship was destroyed by a remote control car.. it wasn't good or it could have been a million times better.. not a solid Trilogy.
“ But I applaud the CGI, and the amazing visuals and beautiful landscapes, making it epic to the eye, but to the mind it bored and frustrated you to no end.
“ We're shown the same old cliché over-the-top comedy skits over-laden with teen angst crap I can't bring myself to laugh anymore.
“ While the second and third halves are a lot better, the first half is pretty boring.
“ There is no story, none at all.
“ It is shallow but fun, superficial but entertaining; The only intellectual talking point of the film would be the implications of a big metal planet entering into earth's orbit.
“this an Adrenaline rush!!.
“ You will not waste your money, if you like action, thrilling scenes, have an ear to music and most of all - like the Transformers, go see it.
“ I found this film to be extremely boring .
“ The drama in the film was intense and i think Michael Bay finished off the trilogy amazingly well.
“ Dark of the Movies: What a waste of time and money (mine, of course) .
“ I had reservations about this when I saw the first trailer but really it's done quite well and we even get a compelling reason why another man has not set foot on the moon in over forty years.
“ Even though the ending is obligatorily predictable, I still find myself completely glued to the screen, waiting for events to unfold, and more importantly hoping things will turn out alright for the Earth.
“ Waste of time .
“ Thus, although the luster of the franchise begins to wear off (especially towards the film's conclusion) in this installment, "Dark of the Moon" still is an entertaining romp that won't leave you bored.
“ All that video game action starts becoming dull without a film or characters we care about to hold it together.
“I have never seen a movie that has no storyline, no plot, bad acting ,cut-shots for no reason,and a action sequence that last 60 minutes make- more than 200million at the box office.
“ Sure, the CGI is good by itself, but after three movies of robots just bashing each other up in CGI it all gets a bit "ho-hum".
“ The scenes of huge explosions and mind blowing action scenes will leave you on the edge of your seat.
“ Too many loop holes and pointless 'essential' characters.
“ Despite the continuous action, destruction and battles, I found this film to be extremely boring, and the final battle, which claimed the last hour of the film was far too long and drawn out and it greatly prevented me from appreciating the visual spectacle that is the final battle as it's so long it becomes tedious and I couldn't wait for it to end.
“ First of all, this movie went on for way too long.
“ It's just that the whole impression is not convincing, the action scenes are rather boring and Megan behaves quite erratic.
“ Unlike the first part , the film's last one and a half hours are literally bursting with rousing action , full scale battles that fully delivers on its promises unlike other lacking movies of this very caliber (like X-men First Class for example) .
“ You will walk out of the theater amazed and you just might be tempted to see it again.
“ For about 90 minutes, Dark of the Moon is entertaining enough.
“The transformer fights and some scenarios are breathtaking.
“ Probably the worst movie I've seen.
“Anyways,my main point is that if you enter the cinema with the right mind set you will really enjoy this movie,but if you expect something amazing and some 10 star classic with unexpected twists and turns you will be very disappointed :)
“ If you love action packed movies then this is the movie for you and of course if you are a Transformer Fan then definitely you will be into it!
“ Followed by a 2 hours lasting explosion and special effects demo with an occasional cliché line and a waving American flag.
“ This was partially due to important scenes being way too short, others were way too long.
“ Every fight scenes were exciting!
“Needless to say, if you're bored enough to risk watching this...
“ Even at two and a half hours long, viewers will enthrall to this adventure that blends metal with heart and makes for an enjoyable trip to the movies.
“ I have seen other 2 transformers too.. But this one is just great so great that this movie really sucked me in.. on those intense scenes i was jumping grinding my teeth getting angry or happy in a long time a movie has taken me for ride for 2 hrs and 35 mins.
“ Continuity errors between each of the three transformer films (and within this film), bad acting and a weak plot made this movie unbearable.
“ Maybe its the fault of the script but she was just uninteresting and obviously only really served as eye candy.
“ It shows how dragged out these films are, I liked the first movie, the second one was a mess and now Dark of the Moon has nearly ruined them all.
“ The overflow of gags (visual and spoken ones) is so inexhaustible that after 10 minutes you can imagine the rest of the movie and what they will do and say, everything in it is that predictable.
“ The 3D visuals work really well in this film, especially with the action scenes and the destruction of Chicago, but the movie just felt way too long in my opinion.
“ Gone is Megan Fox and that is a shame, for her replacement, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a complete bore.
“ Excellent Movie.. Simply Entertaining.
“ It started out to slow.
“ I recommend watching it if you are an actions & special effects movies fan or a transformers fan, but when you leave the theater...
“ It was way too much information, too much action; too much confusion as to what exactly was going on and who was who.
“The girl is not Megan Fox anymore and, if I thought she was kind of bland in the previous movie, you should see the new girl.
“ whilst i know it was an action film i at least expect the story and characters to be focused on as an important part of the film but it was all about the action scenes which were a little confusing to watch at best.
“ It would be different if there was some narrative consistency rather than just explosion after explosion with a pounding, pretentious score playing at all times.
“ The action and special effects were very good and this was a very exciting movie and very fun to watch.
“ it was the best on IMAX as well, so if your looking for an entertaining film, this is for you !
“ But as a whole, this is a perfect addition to the trilogy, and I say it's well worth watching.
“ If you ignore the horrid writing and tune out the parade of annoying or pointless characters, there's a decent action movie buried in here about a bunch of robots smashing and blowing each other up.
“It really is stunning in every sense of the word, for the people who told me the acting was bad....
“ It's Entertaining .
“ Too bad the action is repetitive and the film is a total bore.
“ Two years ago when I saw revenge of the fallen, I fell asleep towards the end b/c honestly..........
“The second half was totally action packed.
“ They are still entertaining.
“ It's an enjoyable stupid popcorn flick.
“With the intriguing premise, the film unfortunately starts to flag.
“ I can't tell you more about the effects without spoiling parts of the story , but tell you what, I was always on the edge of my seat , my eyes and ears were in heaven while experiencing this .
“ Maybe I'd had enough of the relentless onslaught of mediocrity before it, or maybe there's nothing that can impress me any more, but it was the final part of what, like the last two films, had been a complete waste of my time.
“ John Malkovich and Frances McDormand are wasted in inexplicably empty roles.
“ *******SPOILER PACKED************* A lot better than T2 With a great polt and stunning effects, the only thing is It didn't even explain what happens to mkayla, Anyway I'm glad she went as I mutcb preferred Carly his new gf.
“ At some point you become immune to fire and explosions and its just boring again.
“" His specialty is action packed summer movies with all the bells and whistles to be expected from explosions to mayhem.
“Overall, this one was a little more entertaining then Revenge of the Fallen.
“ The second half dragged on too long because of this.
“So, if you want to go and watch an entertaining movie, that is a visual feast but with no plot, this is your movie.
“ To call it a movie would be gross injustice, for it is anything but, it is a sad, raucous, empty 150 minute flick that tricks you into yawning insufferably.
“ What a waste of time.
“Characters - Humans in this movie are pointless and pretty much ruin it in my opinion.
“ The finale was cliché and stale.
“ Its destruction is the sole focus of one and half hours of completely mind numbingly pointless action sequences and over the top special effects.
“ The human characters in the movie are pretty boring especially in the first quarter of the movie.
“ Amazing visual spectacle but tedious and full of clichés .
“ I found the characters to be thoroughly uninteresting, especially Shia LeBeouf's character.
“ My jaw literally dropped about five times during the intense scenes, especially the ones toward the end.
“ There's no story-line, it's bad acting, and all very, very unbelievable!
“ But don't waste your time reading others' criticisms of this or any other movie.
“ I was amazed that this was actually a good experience, Michael Bay was a great director for this movie and it was compelling from beginning to end.
“ The fights are amazing and very very exciting.
“ the plot is very dull and there is not much that makes it good than the epic giant robot battles throughout.
“ Some scenes were very realistic and thrilling to watch.
“Michael bay, next time you make a movie, please slow down enough to tell us what's going on.
“ Half way through the movie i was bored actually bored and i am saying this after being a transformers fan.
“ It's meant to lure audiences with its predictable combination of humor, action and special effects.
“ I am a huge fan of Michael Bay movies and I must admit the first two Transformer movies were actually quite good and entertaining.
“ Boring, Sexist, Unimaginative Junk .
“Apart from that I enjoyed it ;)
“ The third Transformers movie has some of the best action visuals ever filmed and were plenty exciting in 2D.
“So apart from the fact that I find Michael Bay mildly offensive and Shia LaBeouf boring; apart from the fact I found the combination of technology and sex distasteful and the conspiracy narrative to be degrading; apart from the fact that I somehow found the battle scenes dull and perversely distasteful – I'd recommend you to go and watch Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
“ Waste of money to see it in 3D .
“ Shia LaBeouf has majorly improved as an actor over the years with this franchise and has worked under the intense eye of Bay who can be known for being a bit of a douche on the set.
“the highlight of transformers 3 is the jaw-dropping action and thrilling fight sequences shot in 3D....
“For the first hour exactly nothing happens.
“ The 3D is also terrible and pointless I have seen several movies in 3D recently and it was totally under used and wasn't even consistent not being used throughout the movie and the movie was about an hour to long, I prefer long movies but this one actually dragged along not going anywhere.
“ an example: dull point in the movie, theater is dead quiet...
“ Dark of the Moon really shows that after a disastrous sequel, a third installment can correct the mistakes that were made previously, except this did more than that; Dark of the Moon beats both of the first 2 movies put together, having the first film's in-depth story and characters, and the second film's incredibly intense action sequences.
“ but i did go away with some exciting moments and a breathtaking forest fight scene.
“ The first 20 minutes set up an intriguing premise about the "real" reason for the moon landings.
“ I enjoyed it.
“ The few scenes of comrades sacrificing their lives for one another and of the military forces tirelessly re-engaging the enemy despite certain defeat just didn't have the same gravitas, due to sensation overload.
“ Despite the continuous action, destruction and battles, I found this film to be extremely boring, and the final battle, which claimed the last hour of the film was far too long and drawn out and it greatly prevented me from appreciating the visual spectacle that is the final battle as it's so long it becomes tedious and I couldn't wait for it to end.
“ I especially liked the wingsuits and how intense it felt as guys tried to escape their transports.
“Dark of the Moon is indeed a popcorn film, and if you go in looking for a lot of action and humour then you may come out pleased, but for me the lack of any real drama hindered the conflict a great deal and left me feeling cold and bored.
“ There are many scenes that are so predictable and Autobots are ALWAYS there in time.
“ I enjoyed the first two Transformers movies in the exact same way, but TF2 I have to admit was a bit confusing.
“ It was ridiculous, it was dragged out and unnecessary.
“I came into this movie saying what every person who liked the second movie said to me ''It's just a movie , Its supposed to be a stupid but fun action packed ride'' ...
“ So shall be your approach while watching the absolute Bay-hem that dominates the movie's tedious 157 minute length.
“Secondly, if you find pointless action boring, you will bored the hell out of this movie.
“ Slow start...
“ The scene of the skyscraper falling down in the trailer can only be seen on the big screen, it is simply that breathtaking and looks so good.
“ By making the Autobots in brighter colours the fight scene now make sense and are quite enjoyable, two or three time i just had to turn toward my girlfriend and exclaim, ''whoa!
“ The characters don't really develop at all - Sam is still looking for something he hasn't figured out yet (in this case, a job); Megan Fox, now out of the picture, has been replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whitely, who is still there to stare at when the plot gets dull, although does well in her first big film; Sam's mother and father are irritating as ever; Optimus is dramatic and always arrives at exactly the right moment.
“Transformers never "talked down" to its audience, which is one of the things I think that made it so successful and worth watching, and I feel the last two movies did just that.
“ Most critics slated this and the second one due to a 'lack of storyline', thats where i disagree completely.
“ It is superior to Revenge of the Fallen but the final action climax did very much remind me of when I was bored in the cinema two years ago.
“ All the other parts are simply either, cardboard cutout's and have very little screen time to develop in anyway, or are just beyond stupid and pointless.
“The first was interesting, a little longer than the plot was capable of handling, but nonetheless enjoyable for what it is.
“ There is a scene here and there that I might be able to stomach calling a little cool or kinda neat, but this film mainly succeeds in convincing me that giant fighting robots can actually be really boring.
“ What I don't get is why Transformers movies couldn't be made this time round with the characters looking and sounding right, with good character development, heart and soul of the original and enough CG action to make it uber-exciting and an unforgettable Oscar winning epic like Lord of the Rings.
“ After the excitement, but at times lame writing, of the first movie and the awful, yet at times entertaining, second movie I was hoping for something like Dark of the Moon.
“ When Michael Bay puts some originality into his set pieces, takes out the convoluted and tiresome story arcs, and trims about an hour off of his movies, then he can give me a call.
“ This action packed film is a fantastic addition in the Transformers series.
“this is a nice film to see in transformers trilogy its a entertainer but the addition of mass action scenes seems pointless because of the bad climax.
“ The photography is fantastic and the 3d technology is used effectively to create stunning, visually amazing scenes.
“ They can be entertaining as hell, well packaged and visually impressive.
“The special effects have always propelled this franchise during the dullest of moments, and they shine once again with Dark of the Moon.
“ The rest is all Witwicky and his chick and his uninteresting & unimportant life.
“ The non action parts are mostly funny and entertaining.
“ He is slowly moving away from that fast paced editing, and takes us on some nice long shots to let the audience breathe.
“ Transformer 2 was so confusing and packed with more robots than seemingly possible.
“ There is no plot.
“ Whether it's Shia LaBeouf whining and crying about not having a job, Him trying to get a job or pointless humor it is not needed.
“ Regardless, director Michael Bay spends nearly an hour with the contrived plot and useless, unlikable characters.
“ It was slow, boring, non-sense.
“ On a positive note, though, the effects in Transformers 3 were breathtaking!
“ Personally, I am a transformers fan, and I've always been excited by the films, I really enjoyed the first film due to the stunning re-imagining of my favourite heroes, the only issue i had was the story being so different to the original comic.
“ since the new transformers movie came out I decided to make a review of the newest one of the series and this movie would be better if HALF of the movie was missing its just drags on and on its boring and like George Lucas said a special effect with out a story is a very boring thing and this movie is living proof of that in fact I know Micheal bays secret boobs and explosion's and eight year old and losers who can't get a girl and it works well because of these people I feel sorry for parents and siblings of the eight year old who go seeing this if you are normal you will hate this I fell asleep during this movie battle scene and I woke up and it was still going and one other problem is they focus on the boring humans
“ I could not tell you how did it all end, because I left by one hour and 50 minutes into the movie.
“The action scenes in this movie are incredible intense and plain awesome.
“ The finale is wonderful and intriguing and keeps you glued to the screen and on the edge of your seat.
“ in the intense action sequences.
“ Sadly, this has to be his worst movie as an actor or his best movie as a bad actor.
“ RATING: Don't waste your time.
“The CGI is amazing and the action is so fantastic in this film and the best part is at the end of the film, and it was so long but I enjoyed it and the film is 154 minute long feature film.
“ Adrenaline .
“ (Ratings: "See it in theaters," "Wait for the Instant Download," "Don't waste your time")NO SPOILERSI actually saw the first Transformers movie a couple days ago on Netflix.
“ If you are bored and like just watching explosions and and incredible CGI then go ahead.
“its is worth watching.
“ Epic action, intense fights, huge explosions.
“ The explosions are pretty eye-opening in 3D and the IMAX just makes everything more exciting.
“ In the midst of all the stunning visuals and breastbone vibrating explosions, the acting leads are solid.
“ Other than that, the movie is quite enjoyable in the company of popcorn popping young girls.
“ So I fell asleep as I do when there is to much action and sound, my brain shuts itself down.
“ He should be concentrating more on cutting out cliché slow motion and dumb comedy sidekicks from his movies.
“The story was intriguing, it got me into the plot right away and I was interested from the get-go.
“ It is visually stunning, almost incredible in the level of detail the CGI team created in depicting the robots and their ships.
