Directed by the director who directed another movie as a director.

Pure garbage where once you strip away all of the GCI it's an unbearable movie with characters that really stink.

Strictly for the under-15 set who never think anything through.

Directed by Michael Bay in 2011 as the 3rd installment of the series and set three years after 2009's "Revenge of the Fallen", this American SF action drama follows the warring Autobots and Decepticons as they battle to possess powerful technology from their homeworld that had crashed on Earth's moon.
The first hooking sequences appear fascinating and promising, but the rest of the film seems down at heel.
Although the visual effects look great, the storyline lets me down with lousy characters like Carly Spencer and Jerry Wang, who appear as nothing but distractions.

Got tired of the "crash and bang".

It was ok, a little bleak and not fun.

This movie is far and away better than Revenge of the Fallen, and feels much more tense and emotionally invested. I just would've wished that Megan Fox had been able to reprise her role... for continuity's sake.

It was very difficult to become invested in a self-righteous character that was at once both an irrelevant mail room clerk & presidential medal recipient. The special effects are totally over the top; it's a CGI test reel straight from Digital Domain. The problem with the story is that I didn't care about the outcome & it was sometimes difficult to identify the "good" & "bad" guys; however, I would have been very engaged if everything had just blown up at the end - Boom, gone! Now that would be unpredictable.

Not the best of the Transformers movies, although it is still decent. The humans and Autobots discover a piece of technology that was found during the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. During the Apollo 11 mission, a large ship was found and inside it was Optimus Prime’s old mentor, Sentinel Prime. Tensions between Autobots and humans are high and the Autobots supposedly leave earth. Things go awry when the Decepticons attack as the humans are unable to handle them. An unexpected traitor is also part of the attack. Also, a new villain features in this movie named “Shockwave”. The latter part of the movie consists of a long battle and is pretty action packed. Expect a few surprises in this movie.

This is a great film about intelligent robots or aliens that battle each other for domination that are better or for worse. They are distinguished into two groups called Autobots whom are the good robots protecting humans and Decepticons striving for world domination and extinction. These robots transform into any vehicle or technological device and that’s why they’re called Transformers. My opinion on this movie is this was a great and amazing movie that is enjoyable for the family and anyone that loves action movies. I really liked the action scenes with the Autobots and Decepticons fighting each other. Also, I liked the actors in this movie as they performed their role greatly and made it believable. Action scenes were fantastic especially when these robots clash together allowing only one victor to survive. There were many comedic moments that made the movie even better. Also, actors such as Shia Labeuof were an amazing in this film as he performed both action and comedic aspects. The CGI of the robots were outstanding as I saw each of the main protagonists and antagonists robots interacting with humans and each other and when they transformed into vehicles and other technological devices. The Director, Michael Bay did a fantastic job on the making of this film and giving fans and others a movie that will leave them surprised and amazed. Overall, this was a great movie to watch, I would recommend this to anyone that would like to watch an action movie and or anyone that haven’t watched this movie yet.

Optimus Prime: In any war, there are calms between the storms. There will be days when we lose faith, days when our allies turn against us. But the day will never come, that we forsake this planet and its people.
