I had a lot of problems with “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, there is no denying that. What may have gotten lost in translation is why I so viscerally despised the storyline. I alluded to plot holes but didn’t really give specifics. In order to avoid spoilers I edited my review. What I present below is my writer’s cut. It should be patently obviously but if you haven’t seen the movie yet and do not want to be spoiled you should probably not continue reading.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon marks an uptick in quality for the franchise. After a sickeningly disappointing second outing the third movie is a much better time. There are still tons of problems but I enjoyed it. It’s a fun ride full of insane special effects and action. That stated I know this is going to get very negative, very quickly, so I want to give you my final score now and just let this shit descend into madness. I give Transformers: Dark of the Moon a 7 out of 10. Now let’s rev up the hate machine.
Before I delve into my review of “Transformers: Dark of The Moon” I feel like I must confess something vital to my opinion on the third film. Let’s get this shit over with, I hated “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” with a passion. After a good start to the franchise, the sequel was one of the more disappointing movies I have ever seen.
