When a mysterious event from Earth’s past erupts into the present day it threatens to bring a war to Earth so big that the Transformers alone will not be able to save us.
It’s been a while since the first Transformers movie, way back in 2007 it made quite a splash. It was pretty much movie of the year, then came Transformers 2 – which was so bad…I didn’t even blog about it in my expansive Movies category – because it depressed me.
When the rumours started about Transformers 3 coming soon – I honestly wasn’t very excited, especially after Iron Man 2 last year – which was weak.
Anyway the next franchise reboot I’m looking forward to is Spiderman – it’s been a long time coming and I’m excited now after X-men: First Class was SO good.
Well back to the movie in question – Transformers 3, is it as good as the first one? No, not really. Is it better than the second one – yes infinitely so. Is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley hot? Goddamn right she is.
Oh yah and I love the SLS too 😛
Was Shia LaBeouf annoying – yah mostly. Oh and for the ladies, McDreamy is in there playing a douchebag too (Patrick Dempsey). Was the action absolutely spectacular? YES IT WAS! You could actually see them fighting this time – they pulled the camera out and made it a little less frenetic.
The pacing was incredible though, altogether a very gripping film. Well filmed, well scored and the focus was on the robots – there was some good storyline development, character development and for once the plot followed the comic book.
The action tho…wow! Once it got going, it was really intense. Soundwave/Driller was EPICBALLS.
I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the movie but the ending was HORRIFIC, really seriously? What was with the “Don’t let go” – is it Titanic all over again? That was cheesin’ man – really cheesin’ max.
They should have ended with Optimus Prime standing on the bridge with one arm like a total bad mofo having just slain Sentinel Prime and Megatron. It’s not doing too bad on IMDB right now with 6.9, I think it might push into 7.x territory at some point.
It’s also thankfully absent from the pee/poop jokes that littered the second movie.
For me, even with the ending, I still really enjoyed the movie and I give it a solid TRANSFORMING 8/10.
SHOCKwave’s the one with the huge drill. SOUNDwave is a different bot altogether. I still think it was a little too long though. And rosie can’t act for nuts. Almost makes you wish megan fox was back. Which i do.
there’s no acting required from the leading lady in this film and megan fox cannot act! rosie is crazy hot
I personally enjoyed Iron Man 2! I want to see this as well sometime 🙂
actually there’s no acting required for anyone in the movie, bring them botssssss
Is this movie worth watching? I’ve seen the first two Transformers movies already. Is it better to watch in 3D or standard?
Eyeris: Oh yah, my bad 😀 Either way it was awesome and yeh first 1/3 was way too slow.
kimberlycun: Yah just look slammin’
klo: Do check it out 🙂
KY: Hahahaha, TRANSFORM!
easyriderlovescs: Absolutely 100%, watched it for the second time at Times Square on 3D MAXX – totally worth it.
Awesome review mate. They should release the uncut version of this. Is like they are trying to squeeze in a 6 hour show into 2.5. Prime is gonna get a new power arm in TF4 imho. lol.
