Transformers are such a force in today’s movie market. Movie Critics can trash these movies all they want. It just doesn’t matter. The last Michael Bay Transformers flick, “Revenge of the Fallen” grossed over 400,ooo,ooo dollars in North America alone. In the 3rd go round, Sam Witwicky, (Shia LaBeouf) has a new squeeze, Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) I know why Sam can’t keep a steady girl. Instead of putting her in a secure basement, where she might be safe from evil alien robots, he drags her by the hand into the mechanical jaws of death over & over. I guess some chicks like that from their men.
CAUTION: THIS PARAGRAPH CONTAINS SPOILERS. SKIP TO THE NEXT PARAGRAPH TO AVOID, THANKS. As you’ve seen in the trailer, this story originates on the lunar surface of the moon. The government has covered up the existence of Cybertronian spacecraft since the Apollo 11 mission. In on the secret were just 35 people. This included iconic astronauts Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin. The story also offers a twist on history concerning the Russian nuclear meltdown disaster at Chernobyl.
Transformers is the epitome of a really fun summer popcorn movie. Unless you don’t mind paying an extra four dollars at the box office, I’d still suggest seeing Dark of the Moon in 2D. My reasoning, the very first Transformer film was presented in 2D & it’s still the best one of the series. At the end of the day, they’re just movies folks. Try not to over think it. It’s Autobots vs. Decepticons. What’s complicated about that?
Optimus Prime has instructed all Autobots to be outfitted with the Film Freak iPhone/iPad App. It’s the movie app that saves you money on movies. Jest search Film Freak
