A mysterious event from Earth's past threatens to ignite a war so big that the TRANSFORMERS(tm) alone will not be able to save the planet. Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and the AUTOBOTS(tm) must fight against the darkness to defend our world from the DECEPTICONS'(tm) all-consuming evil in the smash hit from director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg.
"Talk about ""transforming."" Michael Bay tested the patience of even the most devoted Transformers fan with the second installment of the franchise, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but the hyperactive director bounces back in energetic form with number three, Transformers: Dark of the Moon. From the long opening sequence (a zany alternate-history reading of the NASA moon program, complete with cameos by John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon) through the predictably extended action climax, Bay is actually on his best behavior. Sure, his taste is as vulgar as ever (is introducing your leading lady via a lingering butt shot part of the director's personal signature?), but the story line is streamlined and the action is coherent: the constant chop-chop of the fighting sequences in Revenge is gone, replaced by a long-take approach that actually shows us who's fighting who. Plus, it's hard to resist a tilting skyscraper that allows the protagonists to slide down its glassy exterior. I know, right?
Shia LaBeouf returns, armed with a new and improbably bodacious girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley); although initially unemployed, he's drawn back into protecting the planet from giant outer-space robots, as the Decepticons menace the Earth once again. John Turturro and Josh Duhamel return to help, and Frances McDormand and John Malkovich join the club. Let's reduce critical expectations and say that if you're going to make a dumb movie about mass destruction, this is the way to do it (and if that sounds like faint praise, compare the movie to its abysmal predecessor). Throw in Hangover funnyman Ken Jeong, computer nerd Alan Tudyk doing a German accent, and the voice of Leonard Nimoy as Sentinel Prime, and you've got yourself a three-ring circus of extremely spirited nonsense. Just how Michael Bay wants it. --Robert Horton"See all Product Description

- It's a shame Michael Bay can make a living doing this.
- Frances McDormand - typical over the top female character with too much undeserved power.
- Buzz Aldrin? Talk about reaching for an audience.
- Leonard Nimoy, you're still one of my heroes. But only just - though I'm sure you don't care. Do you really need money that bad?
- Huntington-Whiteley: not a replacement for Fox by any stretch of the imagination. (Turns out Megan made the right move by sending Bay packing!)
- John Malkovich: when are you going to do something you can be proud of?
Alright, enough of that.
The wacky intro to the movie was fun but the rest is such a mess. It's like a bowl of spaghetti. The first film was exciting with great action, great special effects and CGI and a good story. Compared to the following two it should have won an Academy Award. When you watch this film you ask yourself: how can some of these actors have ever been considered talented? LaBoeuf is as bad in this as he was good in the first.
PS: I can't believe huge robot dogs can outrun a Ferrari 458!!!
The rebooted live-action has been hit-and-miss with me, and sadly this is more miss than hit.
The plot is that the Autobots discover a dead leader on the moon, who turns out to be more than meets the eye, and the Decepticons attack in order to bring Cybertron to Earth and enslave humanity.
If you are a fan of the previous two films, you will love this; transforming robots, big guns, bigger explosions, lot of running around, some very hot women, a major crisis... you get the idea.
However, for me, this movie suffers with the same problems at Revenge of The Fallen - what plot there is (and it is limited), makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
If Sentinel was defecting to the Decepticons at the beginning of the movie, why did they shoot him down and lose all that cool technology?
Optimus and the Autobots spend large chunks of this movie, not being where they should be and thus making a bad situation worse... but with no explanation.
When they do turn up, it is evident that the Autobots have been to the General Custer school of military tactics - they allow themselves to be divided, with no attack co-ordination.
Why do the bad guys have to tell their captives the one weak spot in their whole plan? I mean come on!
Ultimately, the action pieces are fantastic and the CGI is near perfect... but the script is full of holes that made me feel like I had wasted my time.
The story finds us going back to the early 60s and a lunar event detected by NASA.Something crashed on the moon and the crux is who will get there to investigate first,the U.S.or the Russians ? This supposedly is the premise behind Kennedy's admonition to go to the moon in /69.When Apollo 11 lands Armstrong and Aldrin are seen investigating the crash site and bringing back five devices and one round piece of alien technology.
Fast forward to today and Shia Lebouf has a hot new girlfriend but is out of work.Two small bots live with him.The autobots have been working closely with the U.S.military and on a trip to Chernobyl they recover the same round piece of technology that NASA found on the moon those many years before.Optimus Prime is mad because of the deception this has been to them.It is revealed only a handful of people knew about the mission,let alone the piece they found.Prime and others head to the moon and find the crashed ship,the Ark.They recover its pilot,Sentinel Prime,the leader of the entire Cybertron world before it' demise many years before.
Back on earth in a secret area Sentinel is brought back to life by Optimus.Read more ›
OK, so no Megan Fox but Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's lips are able to at least act and look good at the same time so no great loss fox-wise. There's certainly not enough of the Witwicky parents who are pretty funny with the limited screentime they get.
Anyway, gratuitous Malkovich, gratuitous naked dude from the Hangover franchise, gratuitous McDreamy, gratuitous Lane from "Gilmour Girls" as well as Frances McDormand (say what?) has upped the acting ante but, honestly, any Transformers movie comes down to stuff that gets destroyed real good.
In this case Chicago is a great setting to wreck havoc to plus they apparently mechanized and weaponized a worm from Tremors (hey, everything is Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon---even decepticons) to slice through buildings. All in all it's a decent thrill ride.
Note: On the DVD I got the extras went nowhere. Just some weird loop of about a minute through scenes over and over. I'm sure it's some glitch so...can't really comment on what was on the extras.
