The Autobots and Decepticons are back in Michael Bay’s latest.

The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and to learn its secrets

The PR people call this installment of the Transformers movie “the highly anticipated third installment of the Transformers franchise.”  Are they right? Did you see the movie?  Was it all it was supposed to be, or did the lack of Megan Fox bring the excitement level down?  Time for you to use the comment section to share your thoughts and views on Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

    I saw it Wednesday morning and thought it was merely “okay.”

    There’s some great action sequences and Michael Bay knows how to “blow up stuff good,” but by the time we had reached the Siege of Chicago, I just didn’t care anymore. That last hour is a roller coaster ride, but the two hours leading up to it desensitize you to all the flash-bang-boom and you just don’t care what happens to anybody (except Bumblebee — there’s one surprisingly emotional scene near the end with Bee).

    As a fan of the franchise since the early 80’s, it also disappointed me how underused Megatron and Starscream were. They sat out almost the entire movie, allowing for someone else to be the Big Bad the entire time. And I’m still not sure how turning Optimus into a stone-cold killer sits with me.

    I’m sure this is the end of the Shia/Bay trilogy, but I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see Optimus and Bumblebee hanging out with some new humans in the near future.

    I went to the midnight release and saw it in glorious 2D! I was not gong to be duped into the extra five dollar ticket. After I felt duped for even watching it in 2D. Some shots seemed to have the same blur on them if I were to take off my glasses during a 3D, or maybe I need to update my glasses script.

    The overal plot was as deep as any other Michael Bay film. I did enjoy the use of historical footage during the Space Race sequence. The re-shooting of pedestrians watching Apollo lift off was well done also. The action was bigger, louder, and shinier than the first two, with more characters introduced on both sides.

    Don’t wait for the DVD release, unless you are like Stephen and have your own home theatre. Just turn off your brain for 2 1/2 hours and go “Ooooooo, awwwwww”.

        According to Wikipedia, he is working with Shockwave during the movie. But I never saw any character that resembled him.

    i didnt hate it. i didnt love it. i was entertained.
    my parents wouldnt let me watch transformers when i was a child. “too violent” they said.
    maybe this allows Bay some wiggle room with the story that someone who takes those cartoons as gospel. i have gone back and watched some of the better reviewed episodes and the old animated movie. i didnt hate it. i didnt love it. i was entertained.
