Hews to The Rule of Three ... darker in tone, more frenetic, assumes insider knowledge on the part of series aficionados, and, most importantly, it ups the ante in sophisticated CG battle effects.

Director Michael Bay's latest foray into endless, vapid dissonance is Transformers: Dark of the Moon. This time out we sit through 2 1/2 hours of CGI -- complete godawful inanity. The last hour is not equal to what animator Chuck Jones did in a minute.

Michael Bay's mission, and he chose to accept it, was to make a Transformers movie sequel that was not as bad as the last one. The bar was set very low for the success of this mission and Bay cleared the bar. This sequel is better than the last one.

There's no doubt it could have been much worse. It could have been Transformers 2.

Are there any ideas here? Other than to make more than $1.5bn, what is the point of a Michael Bay movie?

John Malkovich saves Dark of the Moon, the Transformers franchise, and the very concept of the effects-driven summer movie, but he is sadly only in the film for about ten minutes.

Bay's fascistic tendencies aren't quite as pronounced as in the last installment, but there isn't anything this man won't do for the sake of arousing himself.

More loud silliness.

Mindless escapist fare designed with the attention-deficit millennials in mind.

Michael Bay's third "Transformers" installment in four years is a rambling mess of bastardized news reel footage, over-stylized CGI talking toy jousts, and light-hearted scenes with the comedic timing of Dick Cheney's pacemaker.

...trades in casual racism, sexism and murder, as well as an obsessive fetishization of war - all under the guise that it's just silly robot-bashing fun.

It is the 21st century nightmare, played out with a boy's toys and a boy's idiotic sensibility.
July 1, 2011
This time it's much easier to tell good guys from bad, which makes it a tad more engrossing than the first sequel. But this is still Transformers.
July 1, 2011
Perfectly fun action, effects, and 3D use marred by some lazy storytelling.

Even though the astonishing special effects and stunt work are a sight to behold, just remember this: Your eyes will be the only organ in your body that will receive any type of stimulation.

'Dark of the Moon' is a slight improvement over the last film, and one can only go into seeing it as mindless fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

A ridiculous and ridiculously fun 154 minutes of utterly unhinged, completely over-the-top robotic mayhem. And with a moral, no less.
