Transformers: Dark of the Moon Movie Review

I finally managed to watch Transformers 3 in 3D yesterday afternoon, but I left the cinema hall rather disappointed for what seems to be the last film in a trilogy of Transformers films done by Michael Bay. While Transformers 2 was plagued with director hubris, Transformers 3 suffers from very poor editing that makes everything look like a mess.

Questions like “How did that guy get there?”, or “What just happened just now?” are best asked outside the cinema hall as Mr. Bay attempts to throw EVERYTHING including a kitchen sink or two at the audience, sacrificing any semblance of a cohesive story. The only saving grace about the movie were the Bot fights that were going on towards to the end and even then it was confusing.


The movie storyline turned out to be rather different from the novelization/graphic novel, leaving practically no room for a sequel as my fiance had put it rather succinctly: “All the bad guys (the prominent ones), are dead“. In the book, Megatron lives and leaves Earth whereas in the movie, Prime practically decimates him and leaves him without a head.

One thing to note about watching it in 3D, it has nothing on Avatar, so save the money and watch the movie in 2D instead, as the only things to pop-up were the…wait for it….SUBTITLES! Nine Over Ten 9/10 rates Transformers: Dark of the Moon at a 2 out of 5. You can’t really expect much from a movie franchise that is made to sell toys these days. So much for high expectations in the 21st century.
