I'm pretty sure whether I love this movie like the first one or hate it like the second film, this is gonna be the first Rotten review out of about 200 of these things...

Blah Blah Blah you've said nothing but the same tiresome nonsense that people I've been saying about the films for years quite frankly I don't give a damn I just want to read one review where someone has something interesting and informative to say but I suppose that's asking to much from the critics of this site huh.

How is he a troll for delivering his opinion on a website for critics? Especially since this is a thread linked to a negative review, not a positive one. He's not a troll and I think you know this will be the first of many rotten reviews.

Go develop a not awful taste in movies somewhere else (now that was trolling, even if it's the truth)

I love that the word boring is everywhere. How? seriously! Watch 2012 for bordom.

They're boring because the Transformers movies are 90% People yelling, complaining, or doing painfully unfunny bits. The remaining 10% of the movies are an ugly confusing mash-up of robots.

2012 wasn't boring at all, it was f*cking hilarious. God, that movie was so awful that me and my friends laughed until we had tears running down our faces.

Now Transformers 2 on the other hand, that movie was so awful, long, stupid, and boring that I had to bite my lip to make it through the whole thing.

Superzone... and 2012 wasn't long?... it was the same length and biting your lip, you much have bled a lot then. Boring is not the word for it... maybe tedious.

Agreed...Go see a movie for yourself to make your own judgment. Every movie deserves a watch.

You just want a critic to write a review that you agree with. That's not their job.

You just want a critic to write a review that you agree with. That's not their job. You obviously do care what critics think or you wouldn't bother commenting.

You just want critics to write reviews that praise the film and then you'll like their reviews. That's not their job. You obviously do care what critics think or you wouldn't bother commenting.

If you know this then why are so interested in the reviews. When a franchise i don't care much for get terrible review it's funny but explaining why there bad on the review comments is just plain sad after all it's prolly the 50th you have done so

These people are merely stating their opinion of the last 2 films and how they predict the third will turn out. Nothing out of the normal there.

Why do I have a feeling I am going to be agreeing with Mr. Caldwell ... this one looks like another wait-for-Netflix movie so far to me.

A pretty fair review until he starts talking about politics!!!!!

Are you kidding? Transformers is the biggest right-wing fairy-tail ever created, and Caldwell is right to call it out as such! Don't hate the messenger, hate Bay and his stupid politics.

This coming from a guy who says
The Fighter is on par with Scream 4 (decent film, but leagues behind The Fighter and also
Kung Fu Panda 2 (full of cheesy commedy) is better than both the former movies.

You Thomas should quit the complacency and the licking of your sites behind, and review with some reason, not the same old nonsense. You have lost all, if you there is any, credibility.

*yawn* Congratulations, you've picked through a critic's former ratings and found one (going back six months, apparently) you disagree with. No one on Rotten Tomatoes has ever done THAT before. How original you are, how clever.

I have to agree with you, picking this reviewers rotten reviews from good films is a retarded excuse.

Everyone has different taste and different opinions. Its tiring seeing everyone try to state their opinions and facts. All the comment sections are the same....fanboys bashing the negative reviews and the haters calling everyone who likes the films some type of name. Ive been called and idiot, retard, virgin, 10 year old, and countless others on this site alone just for enjoying these films. Rather sad.

I agree..people have forgotten how to just have a good time with a film..instead everyone loves to critically tear a film apart.

Have you ever considered the movie is so bad they didn't enjoy it.

That's true. Usually the negative reviews get more attention. It's also OK to dislike a movie, but I hate the fact that some people base their movie decisions solely from others' opinions. I had a friend who was so excited for Thor, but at the last minute, decided not to go because she "heard bad things about it"...I said "F*** that, it looks cool." and from my own decision to go, it turned out to be an excellent and enjoyable adapted film.

People who don't like the two Transformers movies, it's guaranteed, they won't like the 3rd. But they shouldn't tell people who are interested in giving it a chance for themselves not to see the movie with the same biased reasons to why they hated the franchise in the first place.

At the end of the day, don't like Transformers then don't see it, but if you're actually contemplating, give it or any other movie for that matter a view..."Make your own god damn popcorn," I mean "decision." LOL
