Transformers: Dark of the Moon Review

          The 3rd part of Michael Bay's Transformers movie has the dumbest title Dark of the Moon. That right there is a good indicator on how the movie will be. The movie was dumb. 
    I'm going to start out by stating the positives. The score was wonderful. It was fun music and it gave the film the little boost it needed to make it enjoyable. Shia Labeouf was good again. This is his weakest performance in the franchise but he was still the best performance. Megan Fox is not in this one! The script actually seemed good in this one because she was not delivering any lines. She had OK chemistry with Labeouf. It's also sort of a negative to have here gone. She was replaced with first time actor Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. To my surprise she was actually a better actress then Fox. It's always nice to have two out of two of the leads be good actors. Michael Bay really knows how to direct action. The big 45minute action sequence at the end was beautifully done. The visual effects were stunning like always in these movies.  
    The script had some week spots with the dialogue used by the Transformers. It was terrible. Some of the transformers were really annoying. One thing I hate more then anything is comedy relief that doesn't work. This had a whole bunch of that. It got really annoying. This movie is long like the others. This one clocking in at 2hours and 34 minutes. It felt like it dragged on for ever. 
    Transformers: Dark of the Moon was a decent film. It seems like no matter how much the movie sucks, I always seem to like it. I just love Transformers so maybe I'm giving it a higher score then it deserves. I give this movie a 6.5/10.
