Transformers: Dark of the Moon Review Round-Up

Posted June 28, 2011 by Max in Featured


Transformers: Dark of the Moon comes out tomorrow and while the reviews aren’t excellent, the consensus is it’s at-least better than the second film. That isn’t saying much though. Here are some looks at critics reviews:

Josh Tyler of CinemaBlend:

Sure it’s far too long, a little exhausting, and it doesn’t really seem to contain any actual characters let alone a story for them to be in. Those of you worried whether Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whitely would be able to replace Megan Fox should have remembered that. She’s not in this movie as an actress, she’s a posable action figure for Michael Bay to slide his camera over…We’d probably all be happier watching another movie like Inception, but as long as those movies still get made, I guess there’s nothing wrong in sitting down with a Transformers: Dark of the Moon, once in awhile.

Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter:

When the 154-minute Transformers: Dark of the Moon finally ends, your feeling is one of exhaustion, not exhilaration. Pleased with his first effort but downright apologetic about the second Transformers movie, director Michael Bay has thrown every imaginable visual effect, CG animation and physical stunt, all in 3D, into the battle for planet Earth. Bay really needed a gag shot where one alien transforms itself into the kitchen sink…The millions of man-hours put into producing this techno shock and awe must be staggering. Everyone got his job done but somewhere along the way the movie got lost

Stephen Whitty of The Star-Ledger:

“Transformers: Dark of the Moon” is a big wannabe blockbuster starring some nearly lifelike, extraordinarily noisy mechanical creatures that destroy most of Chicago.
It also features some robots.


@the_moviebob: The nicest thing I can say about “Transformers 3” is that it’s not as bad as “Green Lantern.”

@johncampea: Regarding TRANSFORMERS 3, saying “yeah, but the 3D was good” is like saying “yeah, but the camera was in focus”.

@devincf: I think I saw TRANSFORMERS yesterday. I have vague memories of endless comic relief characters.

@TheFilmStage: I hated Dark of the Moon less than Revenge of the Fallen! Decent action, great 3D and almost everything else was just as terrible.
