REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..too long, too dumb and too loud, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" is at least an improvement on its immediate predecessor..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
2.5 of 4

“..the story is one big "God in the Machine" tale, heroic but hapless humans wait for robot rescue..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the franchise remains as much an endurance test as a movie, but at least a better Bay has delivered a leaner, meaner, cleaner 3-D rage against the machines..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
1.5 of 4

“..rilliantly cut trailer makes it look like this might be the first entry into the series to tell a compelling story, but that hope is dispelled fairly early in the proceedings..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2 of 4

“..provides his usual Bayisms: bloated close-ups, manly slo-mo, visual hyperbole and glamour shots of a hot babe standing amid the wreckage..”
by Amy Biancolli [Houston Chronicle]
2.5 of 4

“..one can argue that summer is built for spectacle. Now if only it could be truly spectacular, too..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]
“..o confusingly frenetic that it looks like it was edited by a 5-year-old after consuming three bowls of LSD-laced Cap'n Crunch..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
2 of 4

“..more action sequences, locations, actors, historical events, machines, effects, monosyllables, weapons, and American-flag close-ups the movie shoves in its mouth and ours, the less we're able to taste..”
by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe]
2 of 4

“..might as well have been written by a machine, given its tin-eared comedy and noisy soullessness..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2.5 of 4

“..is about 45 minutes too long, and that's the dull middle section before everybody starts wrecking Chicago in a reprise of The Blues Brothers..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..high on any list of the worst blockbusters ever..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
Review rate : B

“..hardly a fleet production, but here Bay makes his best, most flexible use yet of all the flamboyant bigness at his command..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
1 of 5

“..Bay misses every opportunity to make something interesting out of his characters; instead, he's content to spend his enormous budget on grinding destruction so generic and visually convoluted, it's often hard to tell who we're supposed to be rooting for..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
1.5 of 4

“..as bad as the action sequences are, Bay fails spectacularly when he goes for pathos..”
by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer]

LATEST REVIEWS

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

“.."This Is Where I Leave You" leaves them all to their own devices. If they had a reunion free of this overwritten and clunkily directed movie, that would be worth going to..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

FORT BLISS :

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

RECLAIM :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
