for me, this was the best film in the series. megan fox is hot and was an adequate actor for the role she played in the first two. the new girl(huntington-whiteley) gets more material to work with (she actually plays a critical role in the fight against the decepticons), but isn’t as hot. my major gripe with these films is that they play down to a younger audience too much for my taste. they have these cheesy little jar jar binks type characters that are pretty much useless.
that said, the film pretty much roles along fairly well. we establish some stuff with our protagonist and his new girlfriend, his worried parents and his role in the new economy. kind of a lot of plot and much of it has nothing to do with saving the world, in other words it could be called character development. weird. but the real thrill of the film comes in the last hour which is prety much cgi/effects artists and michael bay showing off. and it’s about as impressive as it gets in my opinion. there are some stunning effects and the colors are as impressive as you expect from a bay film. it’s a spectacle that’s for sure. we watched it in 3d and he uses the format well, though i still am not sold on it being worth the extra $5 or whatever it is.
honestly, for it being 2.5 hours this movie went by pretty quickly. for me it’s pretty much all id when watching this stuff, but you need that kind of thing from time to time. if you’re a boy between 11 and 40 you’re probably going to like it. if not then maybe not so much.Watched in theater
