Sam Witwicky takes his first tenuous steps into adulthood while remaining a reluctant human ally of Autobot-leader Optimus Prime. The film centers around the space race between the USSR and the USA, suggesting there was a hidden Transformers role in it all that remains one of the planet's most dangerous secrets.
Optimas prime and Sam Witwicky save the world from “who gives a crap” by doing “more who gives a crap.”
I did not like this movie. . . at all. Words cannot express my hatred. There is very little that is done correctly in this movie, I guess it’s better then the first sequel, but that’s like saying it was better then being castrated with a hammer.
The first half of it wasn’t that bad, it had the quality level of the first transformers, it was almost watchable, and I even laughed a few times. But the second half of the movie is basically one huge poorly set up action sequence, and it burns.
All of the events come at you so fast that you can’t keep track of what is going on, and it is set up so horribly that you don’t care. there is no humor in the second half of this flick, it is way too serious.
Let’s compare that too the first transformers movie (which was bad, but not nearly this bad.) Humor permeates the movie (not good humor, but whatever,) this gives the incredibly stupid premiums for this film a sense of levity, you feel like this is not meant to be taken seriously. In the Dark of the Moon this humor is used in the first half but not in the second half, so there is nothing to protect the shear stupidity from raping your soul.
The characters are boring, and the plot predictable, after optimus “dies” for the third time, you cease to give a crap, Witwicky is an annoying little twerp, during this movie I wanted to punch him in the face, which would be good if he was the villain, but he’s the protagonist, your suppose to sympathize with the protagonist.
I know that you do not always need to like the main character of a movie, by the time gone with the wind was over I wanted to punch scarlet. But when it comes to a movie based on toys, and an appeal that can be is summed up in the words “explosion” and “boobies,” don’t you think that simple is better?
This movie was one of the worst I’ve seen all year, so do not see it. Michael bay is rich enough already.
A lot of people paid a lot of money to hate Transformers 2. The movie made enough money for Michael Bay, the director of the movie, to live without a job for the rest of his life. However, many people loathed it because of all the disappointment people had on Transformers 2 with having stories that does not even make any sense. So with Transformers 3, Michael Bay has made a movie about how dumb people were to hate Transformers 2, and how much people hurt his feelings by not appreciating the movie. In Transformers 3, Shia LaBeouf continues his role as Sam WitWicky, and Carly, starring Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, replaces Megan Fox in the new movie. The movie is just filled with action. Well, not the entire movie, but a lot, which is more than enough to entertain you.
The story is about the Autobots, the nice robots who help the earth from Decepticons, to recover the Arc, a Cybertronian aircraft that holds the key to save the planet Cybertron, before the Decepticons. The Arc holds the secret which, if it falls in the hands of Decepticons, will spell disaster for Autobots, and more importantly, for Earth. However, the Autobots soon learn that what they strive to protect, has a deeper and a darker plan than they could imagine. They must race against time and the Decepticons and fight one of their own to save the planet and the human race from the Decepticon’s nasty plan.
The dialogue in the movie may not be the strongest point of the movie, but that, in no way, holds the movie back from people watching it. There are some intelligent exchanges and more advanced computer graphics with the movie compared to the previous versions of the movie, Transformers. The screen comes alive with all the action, backed with strong special effects. Also, the all new 3D effects give you an extraordinary experience while watching the movie. Many different backgrounds such as the shades of the African Savannas or the black surface of the moon are also enhanced. The music consist, mainly rock. Tracks from Staind, Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance and Goo Goo Dolls, among others, make up the amazing and impressive soundtrack for the movie to sound better than the previous movie to the audience.
Michael Bay delivers a few of the smoothest, most gorgeous action scenes he’s ever created. There’s about 30 minutes of stunning fighting, urban destruction and joyriding buried in this two hour, 34 minute movie. Several of Transformers 3’s action scenes are definitely better than the confusing mess that was included in Transformers 2. There’s a scene where a giant robot snake tentacle surrounds a building that Shia LaBeouf is in, and manages to make you hold your breath with its vividness and the stunning background music. Also, the new 3D formated movie makes many action scenes stand out from the rest, so viewers will mostly not hesitate for the extra few bucks they would spend.
These days, the computer graphic is smooth enough that we can see the robots changing shape as they roll/jump across the screen, with no pause or anything. I could really say that was what I liked most of the movie because of new gorgeous action scenes. All the action, 3D, and new characters make the movie even better. Shia LaBeouf said: “Michael Bay’s ideal movie shifts from action movie to teen comedy to political drama with the same well-lubricated ease that his cars become men”. By the time you’ve finished watching the movie Transformers 3, you will then, understand Michael Bay. And only then will you develop a full appreciation for Transformers 2, the movie that you, and many others hated. I know many of you hated Transformers 2, but the third version, will not disappoint you in any way.
Transformer’s is a franchise that was hurt majorly by two things over its 2007-2011 journey. The first was the writers’ strike that made the first sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, fantastically atrocious. The second and most horrendous part of it was bringing Megan Fox into the world of film with her stale acting, conceited attitude and complete mindnumbingly idiotic quotes. The first film was fun, the second made you wish Hasbro never brought these toys into existence and the third one should be seen just for the last half of the film.
Shia Labeouf returns as Sam Witwicky, who is a recent college grad who has saved the world twice with the Autobots but can’t find a job. He has new girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), just as beautiful as the last one but who is forever supportive of him in his struggle. He once again gets entangled in a new earth endangering plan by the Decepticons. This time it is because there was a huge cover up during the first manned mission to the moon. There was a crash of an Autobot spacecraft that the US found on the moon and hid from everyone. What was in the ship was the old leader of the Autobots, Sentinal Prime (voiced by Leonard Nimoy) and he had a weapon that the Deceptions want. So starts the story of the new adventures of the Autobots who have become an elite military unit, sent on worldwide missions for the US.
The movie is usual Michael Bay fare, beautiful women, quirky characters and action, action, action. The story, far surpassing the last film, is interesting enough, but will it keep the audience engaged? If not for the great action and effects, it would not. It’s just a story that is written around multiple action scenes. The American military is once again portrayed as true sacrificial heroes in this one, as the films previously did. The theme of freedom over tyranny is always welcome when Hollywood films and players usually don’t make movies like this in a positive light. Michael Bay has never shied away from that. Shia comes back with his usual fast talk, high-pitched scream and quick sarcasm. The addition of Huntington-Whiteley over Megan Fox is a strong improvement. John Malkovich as an oddball character works well for laughs, even though that is a point of contention for most reviews I have read. He does well when just being a goofball, and I found it worked for what we have come to expect in these films. Francis McDormand plays the usual annoying government character, and she annoyed the snot out of me, so she did a good job with that.
The special effects on this film were fantastic. The last half of the film, which demolishes almost an entire city, is done so well, you can’t tell what is real and what isn’t. That last hour was well done, effects wise, camera wise and action wise. The film is definitely not worth the price for 3D though, just wasn’t noticeable really. It was unfortunate though that the effects at the beginning of the movie, trying to pull a Forrest Gump in trying to recreate old footage, were horrible. It was like a really bad moving Photoshop of President Kennedy. To give you an idea, it gave the Photoshop’s on this site look award-winning in comparison.
My biggest gripe about the film was the main characters struggle to find a job. I realize the writers were trying to be relevant in today’s world of 9.2% unemployment, but three months, really? You’re talking to a guy that was out of work for over a year and a half and finally settled for a job below his skill set to provide for his family and there’s many more with the same story. I found it insulting and irritating. Though I did agree with the characters frustration that he helped save the world twice and the government he helped wouldn’t even help him get a job. President Obama did give him a medal and send him on his way without any help, so at least that was more true to life; he had the hard work of the country to work out, like squeezing in another few holes of golf and another vacation. Being President is so haaard.
This latest installment in the Transformers universe is decent enough, but I could have waited to see it at home. Action is great, intense action is even better, but when you can’t connect someway to the film as a viewer, it’s just a time filler. Also, parents, be discerning in which child you might bring to this. This was a violent movie, showing humans dying in droves, as well as very anthropomorphic death scenes from the robots themselves, it was kind of shocking to see. Some youngins might get scared with this one.
I cant believe i am saying this but Michael Bay has done it he has finally made a big action movie with huge explosions good...which is not only amazing but breathtaking.I am going to start this review by giving you small plot details.
During the final days of the war that devastated the planet Cybertron, a spacecraft known as The Ark attempted to escape. Piloted by the great Autobot leader named Sentinel Prime (Leonard Nimoy), the ship was said to contain special items that could help the Autobots win the war over the Decepticons. However, the ship was hit by enemy missiles, and the ship and its crew were lost into the far reaches of space.
Yea a plot that sounds like that could mean the worst movie of all time...but nope.
This movie is amazing it has fantastic acting,editing,writing,and directing.
Plus the 3D is amazing, I was really worried about paying 11 bucks to see this in 3d but it was well worth the price of admission.
There's so much stuff in this movie a fantastic story in a Michael bay film is hard to come by but this movie has it which is amazing and i was on the edge of my seat most of the time. I actually cared about the good guys in this which surprised me. This is definitively a winner of a movie. I Cant really talked much more about this movie or i will give away allot of the movie which i really don't want to do because this movie is a real treat.
Cons:there is still unneeded Comedy but not as much as ROTF
Starts of a little slow.
