Well its better then the total garbage that was Revenge but that isn't saying a whole lot. Uneven action porn at its finest, Transformers is complex where it should be simple and simple where it should be complex. However all that being said my main issue is that the characters do not grow. You know that thing called "character development"? Transformer skips that (and in some cases regresses).
I just imagine the studio execs had a check off list of things that had to be in the Transformer franchise because they worked in the first movie...
Item 1: Sam must be dating a hot chick that is totally out of his league. His parents must also harp on him about snagging said hot chick as he is unlikely to do better.
Item 2: Bubblebee must talk in radio speak (this is the character regression I spoke of before).
Item 3: Everyone must give Sam a hard time even though he has proven himself in two previous films (The best job he can get is copy boy? really? really??).
Item 4: Even though they work together the Humans and Transformers must learn nothing from each other.
Thing is I could just go on and on.
Also may I add the only reason I watched this movie is because I got it from a family member who won it in a raffle, I swore after Revenge I would give no more money to this franchise and I have kept my promise.
