Transformers: Dark of the Moon(2011)

And I am being forgiving. It started slow with flash backs to the 60s, black and white footage of Kennedy and Johnson, then bad recreations in color with actors that didn't look anything like Kennedy or Johnson. Then a recreation of the moon walk discovering Sentinel Prime's ship, all stuff we knew from the commercials was going to happen, did not develop the plot at all and we could have learned as the story went along.
There was a section of exposition explaining why Megan Fox wasn't the girl friend. There were way to many comic relief characters and scenes, unless they meant it as a comedy, then there were way too few.
About 45 minutes of the last hour was a continuous fight scene blowing up most of Chicago, the whole time Sam, his core seal buddies barely get scratched, and his current hottie girl friend manages to keep up, still in high heels, without even getting a spot of dirt on her white jacket. And in the misted of the battle they make time for a scene with here running across the road, in slow motion with the wind blowing her hair as she shakes here head like she is strolling down the runway at a fashion photo shoot.
All in all the plot development all of about 20 minutes, the rest was filler and explosions.
