Movie Reviews

  • too long, too dumb and too loud, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" is at least an improvement on its immediate predecessor
    2.5 of 4 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • the story is one big "God in the Machine" tale, heroic but hapless humans wait for robot rescue
    2.5 of 4 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 ]
  • 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
    1.5 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • provides his usual Bayisms: bloated close-ups, manly slo-mo, visual hyperbole and glamour shots of a hot babe standing amid the wreckage
    2 of 4 by Amy Biancolli [Houston Chronicle ]
  • one can argue that summer is built for spectacle. Now if only it could be truly spectacular, too
    2.5 of 4 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 ]
  • 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
    2 of 4 by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe ]
  • might as well have been written by a machine, given its tin-eared comedy and noisy soullessness
    2 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • 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
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • high on any list of the worst blockbusters ever
    by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • hardly a fleet production, but here Bay makes his best, most flexible use yet of all the flamboyant bigness at his command
    Review rate : B by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • 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
    1 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News ]
  • as bad as the action sequences are, Bay fails spectacularly when he goes for pathos
    1.5 of 4 by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • 3 of 5 Reviewed by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • 1.5 of 4 Reviewed by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
