Nowhere near as jaw-droppingly racist as the previous two installments. Is that damning with faint praise?

An overlong ordeal, devoid of excitement and intrigue.

This movie is actively making the world a worse place to live. I am certain Michael Bay considers it his masterwork. He's right. God help us all.

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is one of the best blockbuster I've seen in years. No other action film can compare to what is undoubtedly Michael Bay's magnum opus, this is the film to beat this summer!

By a thin margin, the best film in the series. Funnier. But that's not saying much.

Easily transformed into the worst summer blockbuster of the year.

Despite an over-long and underwhelming build-up, the final hour of Dark of the Moon is an all-out action fest with some of the coolest visuals ever put to film.

If you like mindless spectacle, this is undoubtedly the frontrunner so far this year.

[Bay], having seemingly learned nothing from the last film, allows just about all of the same mistakes to be made yet again.

Intensely juvenile, casually sexist, and blatantly stupid in ways that few if any over the age of "T for Teen" or bereft of a Y chromosome could enjoy. [3D Blu-ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Remarkable action set pieces and stunning effects, but this third outing of Transformers is sometimes just as clunky and irritating as the second.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Loud and long, this 3rd installment boasts a better plot and impressive CGI while maintaining its juvenile level of comedy - the target audience will likely love it.

You either take it on faith that the succession of scenes and exposition actually add up to a story and enjoy the ride, or sink 2 1/2 hours into the most expensive abstract disaster film ever made.
John J. Puccio
Movie Metropolis
September 24, 2011 takes a certain talent to create as much action as Bay does without generating an ounce of excitement.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Transformers 3 is the archetype of a summer blockbuster-all explosions and chest-swelling bravado and snarky sidekicks and big guns and hot chicks and hero shots.

Better than the second film in the franchise, this film is still as hollow and unimportant as its predecessor.

The third outing for a herd of toys that should have stayed in their boxes.

Michael Bay's latest adolescent fantasy for grown men is a moderate improvement over both of its predecessors, which is about the best thing it has going for it.

The Transformers series comes to a merciful close with this hopelessly anticlimactic installment that is, as expected, just as underwhelming and unwatchable as its predecessors...
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
Kevin A. Ranson
July 12, 2011
Once the film stops trying to endear you to Shia's employment and girlfriend problems, the meaningless destruction and mayhem does have a measure of entertainment value.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4.0
