Talk about "transforming." Michael Bay tested the patience of even the most devotedTransformersfan with the second installment of the franchise,Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but the hyperactive director bounces back in energetic form with number three,Transformers: Dark of the Moon. From the long opening sequence (a zany alternate-history reading of the NASA moon program, complete with cameos by John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon) through the predictably extended action climax, Bay is actually on his best behavior. Sure, his taste is as vulgar as ever (is introducing your leading lady via a lingering butt shot part of the director's personal signature?), but the story line is streamlined and the action is coherent: the constant chop-chop of the fighting sequences inRevengeis gone, replaced by a long-take approach that actually shows us who's fighting who. Plus, it's hard to resist a tilting skyscraper that allows the protagonists to slide down its glassy exterior. I know, right? Shia LaBeouf returns, armed with a new and improbably bodacious girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley); although initially unemployed, he's drawn back into protecting the planet from giant outer-space robots, as the Decepticons menace the Earth once again. John Turturro and Josh Duhamel return to help, and Frances McDormand and John Malkovich join the club.

I recommend this to any fan of sci-fi. Get the Blu-ray.


The best movie yet in this series. The animation is fantastic and the scenes from around Chicago were so cool.

See it. Worth the time and money!


Amazing scenes of the Chicago Cityscape amidst the Autobot/Decpeticon battles. The voice of Spock himself brings gravity to Sentinel Prime. A stunningly beautiful Rosie Whiteley and excellent performances by John Turturro and Francis McDormand (of Fargo fame). I am not a raving transformers fan but certainly enjoyed this one.
