Transformers Dark of The Moon Review

Update: You can now read our Transformers 3 Movie Review.

Total Film has just released their review of Transformers Dark of the Moon and its one of those reviews you have to read and think about to decide the film verdict.

Rotten Tomatoes has flagged the review as Fresh and admittedly it has good things to say about Transformers 3 but it also has some really negative things to say.

Here is a quick key snippet of what they have to say about the movie, the story, the action and lets be honest what we really want to know… how good or bad of an idea it was to replace Megan Fox with a Victoria Secret model with 0 acting experience.

Total Film writes that the movie took an incredibly long time for the characters both flesh and metal to actually reveal which side they were on and as Total Film puts it ‘show their true colors’. As we have heard in other early reviews the film is incredibly long and drawn out and takes an overly long period of time to get to the meat and potatoes of the film with a heavy emphasis on character development which can be good and bad depending on whether you can stick with the movie.

Much like in the review that AICN did they also say that the final one hour of the movie is a complete blood bath as Chicago is ripped stem from stern and completely and utterly destroyed.

Transformers Dark of The Moon Review

They say the film features not one, not two, not three but four climatic showdowns in the final hour of the film. They also had some choice words about Megan Fox’s replacement Rosie Huntington Whiteley. They write that her acting is awful… with heavy emphasis on awful.

Her acting they say is so bad that she ends up impacting the other actors characters around her especially Shia LaBeouf’s character Sam. They say that Rosie is so bad that Shia who isn’t the greatest actor to begin with suffers as well.

To sum it up Total Film indicates that the movie is extremely long, very winded, and works its way to a money shot action sequence that features an hour of insane robot induced destruction. ( read the entire review at TotalFilm this is but a small snippet ). The fact that Huntington-Whiteley sucks as an actress should come as no surprise. This is not me being a prick or bagging on her its facts. It would be no different than Michael Bay tapping me to star. I have never acted and it would show. Total film gives Transformers Dark of the Moon 3 out of 5 stars.

About a month ago AICN also posted their review of Transformers 3 but they were alot more excited about the movie then Total Film appears to be. Regardless of how long the movie is or how bad the acting of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s is I will be going to see this movie. What did you think of Transformers 3?

    Movie was epic! Who cares about Rosie the movie is called Transformers!! Be happy a movie is even being made of such a classic cartoon. Too much complaining! Just go out and enjoy an escape of reality and stop worrying about oscar performances. Its suppose to be fun!

    reviews can SUCK IT!  It was an awesome film and I loved it!  and the girl is HOT!!! Better than Megan Fox!

    Just saw the film-I never go to the theaters unless I completely know the film will be worth it, regardless of what the critics say. With that said, TF 3 is worth the price of admission-you should have no doubts about paying for the film or sitting for 2 1/2 hours, it’s fast pace with good plot twists, and overall a great film to cap off the trilogy….there’s even some humor–look for the scene where shia’s character poses for a photo with President Obama.

    I hated the first half of the movie. All the talking and stuff was boring. Second half of the film was pretty good, autobots were awesome. But it’s just really like, “oh the film’s already done?” 
    I liked the first and second movie more, and moreover I think if Megan Fox wasn’t replace there’d be a better story than that of the new film. Just saying, just saying.

    The person who wrote this must be crazy… Megan Fox is not and will never be a good actor either so her replacement doesnt even matter she cudve been replaced by a broom for all I care. Furthermore, the female role is eye candy, if no one else noticed, they don’t add value to the movie, and I’m pretty sure all Rosie’s lines cudve been fit on a page its not meant to be award winning stuff ppl give her a break, the movie surpassed the previous 2

  11. the movie was freaking awesome!!! the 3D version was sold out so i had to watch regular :(, but i think i’ll watch it again but this time in 3D!!!

    TF3 was a yawner. The plot was bad, script was slightly better than the last. The action 3D scene was beautiful. The cut scene cut too fast, that the show feels like a lump of barely joining scene stitch together poorly. The Final Chicago war was dumb. The rag tag team of commando was dumb. The final fight scene was dumb. Rosie Huntington is hot, and that is it. Megatron should have squash her than kill Prime. Only thing i enjoy was the 3D.


  13. Leonard Lepadatu

     I saw the movie yesterday evening .. not bad , I must admit, if you are under 12. otherwise it is too long and too boring  and too predictable – besides the  crappy acting ; I had to leave after two hours of trying to figure out if I can get some value for the money paid fr the ticket.. Rosie Huntington or whatever her name is could only make me laugh .. she is very good playing the `naive blonde` if you understand .. my advice : don´´t waste your time and money

    Impressed with the effects but not with the story of the movie. I am a go on the action and explosions, but it was too draggy in this movie. And the girl was annoying for me because all she does was scream. Unlike Megan Fox, she fights and really has a part with the transformers. Maybe the movie will be a bit better if the girl isn’t a coward.

    Megan Fox wasn’t good but Rosie Whiteley is AWFUL!  Sam absorbed autobot knowledge and was made a prime last time.  This movie he’s wimpy.  Some good laughs and special effects but the movie could have been much better

  18. You can take from this what you want…I have no idea what transpired in this movie.  Don’t get me wrong, I watched it all, and was impressed with the high quality of computer effects, but plot-wise…it was incomprehensible.  To borrow a line from Mr. Plinkett, “It’s like someone threw 5 jigsaw floor and gave you an hour to put them back together.  It was great to hear Leonard Nimoy, and I absolve Shia of all wrong doing.  Still, it’s a jumbled mess of logic, where characters motivations make no sense, and once again, we’ve rewarded Michael with a boat load of cash. Maybe he is a better director than I give him credit for, because he keeps getting away with it. If you’re 18-24, and suffer from ADHD, by all means go see it.  You’ll probably love it.   


  19. Funny comment Doctor Mario about ADHD because I can see
    where you would get this opinion since there is little background to get us to
    where we start; however, there are some things that were markedly better than
    the previous installment I feel.  The
    action was easier to follow as it was slower and less cuts and the plot was direr
    for the destruction of the world which kept me on the edge of my seat.  I haven’t bought the second movie on Blu-ray
    yet but I will definitely watch this when it comes to my DISH Network employee
    service.  I don’t even buy the digital copies
    of movies because my terabyte DVR holds all of my favorite movies and I watch
    them on the go with my Sling adapter. 
    Saves me money from buying the same movie twice and I don’t even have to
    buy an Blu-ray if I don’t want to.

    well to say it briefly, storyline was 2 predictable, actors well didn’t live up to the first or second movies, if i didn’t know better i’d think travolta had made another movie.

    If you want to watch a movie that has only non-stop aggresive actions without any sense and meaning, watch Transformers 3. Its created for people who are addicted to violent computer games. Stupid, stupid, stupid. A thousand times stupid. Money waster, and not worth seeing. It dosen’t deserve to be called a movie, its a freakin violent computer game! Megan Fox is wayyy hotter than the blonde girl. I would rate this movie not even 1 star. I left in the middle of the movie and lots of people followed me out of the movie as well.Cause it just sucked, horrible movie director.

    Megan Fox and Shia had better on screen chemistry and were much more comical together. This Rosie did not do the film justice and was a very boring character. I would suggest that if there is a number 4 ever in the future, someone needs to work some kind of magic to get Megan and Shia back together on film.
