Priest, X-Men, Green Lantern- I love you all to death but Transformers: Dark of the Moon just ATE you. I haven't enjoyed going to the movies so much in a long time. You can now add Transformers to the list of great summer movies. It was spectacular. I am blown away.
I'm a sucker for good action and this one had it and in 3D with an interesting story. It wasn't deep and complex but it wasn't just an excuse for Michael Bay to blow things up. The storyline wasn't perfect but the movie was still awesome. If Transformers was longer with fewer characters then they could've polished their plot but, it was great for what it was. Just like the first 2, there were some hilarious, laugh out loud, moments. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and was completely engaged.
The Autobots sure do get beat up a lot which could've tanked the movie but man do they make up for it with some spectacular comebacks. I had to restrain myself from cheering during fight scenes. And, I don't usually care about soundtracks but the one for Transformers was on point. The special affect, the storyline and the soundtrack took even me on an emotional ride.
As I expected, the blonde female was there only to be hot but her utter uselessness didn't turn me off the movie. She got Sam from point A to point B. She did her job. Because I wasn't expecting much from her, she didn't annoy me. I can't fault them from casting her to be pretty. From what I read beforehand, one of the reasons people saw the movie was her. A lot of females, including me, enjoy Transformers but, when it comes right down to it, Transformers was made for guys. One reviewer pointed out that only two females were in the movie. It's true but I didn't noticed while watching and even now, it doesn't bother me.
I was really surprised by user reviews. A lot of people didn't like it but, for the life of me, I can't understand why. People said they couldn't follow the plot but I didn't have a problem understanding what was going on at any point. Others said there wasn't any character development which is true but the characters were developed during the first two movies; they'd done all the growing needed to overcome their many obstacles. Other people even said the special effects weren't anything special which completely blows my mind. The special effects were amazing.
People are just taking it way too seriously. Simple- if you liked the first two movies, you'll love this one. It's meant only to be entertaining. The movie was exactly how the previews portrayed it. Is it flawed? - yes but Transformers: Dark of the Moon was far more epic than I expected and totally worth watching in 3D. I haven't enjoyed a movie this much in a long time.
I love the music for this trailer but unfortunately, iTunes doesn't have it. So sad. I really want it. Next up is the movie I've been waiting for since like last year- Harry Potter 7 Part 2.
I never get tired of watching this.
