So how does Michael Bay justify making a third? Why, by making the film a little dense as to plot, and giving it perhaps the longest climax ever in Hollywood history.

The obnoxious and ungrateful shall inherit the Autobots, the power and the cash.

the actual Transformers action in Transformers: Dark of the Moon looks great and should please those who enjoy the format. Getting there, however, transforms what should be a brisk set-up into a long haul.

Like its immediate predecessor, Dark of the Moon is loud, dumb, and dull. It's as much an assault on the senses as it is on the intelligence

There ought to be a way to make a live-action film about giant shapeshifting robots that's either a) fun or b) awesome... It's blatantly evident that Bay can only just about manage b) long enough to provide the shots needed to cut into a trailer.

As with most of his films, Michael Bay doesn't take the less-is-more approach when it comes to spectacle. That he saves for his convoluted screenplay and flat human characterizations.

Where I do not give Bay any kind of pass, the problem I identify as uniquely his own and the reason I think that, no matter how technically proficient he is, he is a bad filmmaker, is his utter tone deafness to stereotypes and characterizations.

Never mind the ridiculous subtitle. It's really just a precursor for what is to come from the rest of the movie. And Transformers: Dark of the Moon doesn't even try to play down its idiocy.

Nowhere near as jaw-droppingly racist as the previous two installments. Is that damning with faint praise?
June 30, 2013
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.

Easily transformed into the worst summer blockbuster of the year.

[Bay], having seemingly learned nothing from the last film, allows just about all of the same mistakes to be made yet again.
April 13, 2012
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]

Remarkable action set pieces and stunning effects, but this third outing of Transformers is sometimes just as clunky and irritating as the second.
October 20, 2011
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.
September 28, 2011
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.
September 24, 2011
...it takes a certain talent to create as much action as Bay does without generating an ounce of excitement.
August 16, 2011
Better than the second film in the franchise, this film is still as hollow and unimportant as its predecessor.
July 18, 2011
The third outing for a herd of toys that should have stayed in their boxes.
