Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Michael Bay’s wet dream

Short review.  The moral of Transformers 3 is don’t date Shia LaBeouf.

Seriously, I was mildly surprised by Tranformers: Dark of the Moon.  I never saw the second film due to its ubiquitously terrible reception, and I don’t remember the first film oozing in witty dialogue.  But Transformers 3 made me laugh a few times and the supporting casting was superb: John Malkovich, Ken Jeong (Chow from Hangover), and Alan Tudyk (Alpha from Dollhouse) to name a few.  Leonard Nemoy was also the voice of Sentinel Prime, something my friend had to point out to me, even after the numerous Star Trek references.

Despite the obvious action film flaws, like the girl having a miraculously clean white blouse post-apocolypse, it delivered what it advertised–really cool fucking robots.

 

My main complaint is that the editing could have been tighter.  They could have shaved 30 minutes off the 2.5 hour run time.  Still, the ending scene, which was more like 3 ending scenes blended together, had some really badass robot carnage.  And Michael Bay got to destroy Trump Towers.

I give it a B- for a regular movie, and A- by Michael Bay standards
