Cinema Sound Off…Transformers 3

My good friend, KM Wilsher, and I are heading out to Harkins Theatres each month to watch a choice movie.

We’ll let you know if it’s worth you spending your hard-earned money or not.

Now…onto the movie.

Synopsis from IMDB:

The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and to learn its secrets.

My review:

Okay, so, the action ROCKED. Kind of expected that, though, right? I came into the movie hearing, “There’s no plot” and “Not sure what I just saw, but it was good.”

I’m pretty sure of what I saw, and I didn’t really like it. I found a bit of a plot, but again, I didn’t like it.

We have the main character, Shia LaBeouf, who is a fine actor, just not one of my favorites. In the beginning he’s screaming his head off like a little girl but then magically morphs into this amazing super-dude who can catch falling women with a quick snatch of his hand, skid under cars and kick the crap out of dudes twice his size.

We have the heroine, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, walking around in skimpy outfits that left little to the imagination as to what was beneath the flimsy fabric. What was her role in the movie again? Other than to be a beauty on Shia’s arm….I’m not quite sure.

I thought the humor was distracting again as I did with the last movie. Really, the only thing that rocked was the action, and it flirted with being over done. It just went on and on and on.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE special effects, kick-butt action scenes, but a girl can only take so many in a movie. Jeepers.

Sorry guys, I have to give the movie Two Tickets:

2 tickets — See it, but by yourself on dvd



Now, head on over to KM’s blog to see what she thought about it:   KM Wilsher

What’d you guys think of it? Was I too harsh?

  1. I’ve got the first 2 on DVD so I’ll wait for this to come out on DVD and get it to complete the collection. I think the first film will remain the best one as often happens in series!

  2. Lynn, I love it when :”normal” people write reviews! I have no intentions of seeing this movie, despite it making $140M already. I’m not really a summer blockbuster kinda guy unless it’s is *actually* (gasp) a GREAT movie. Keep ’em coming

  3. I have not seen this one yet..It looks good but I have to wait and see if it really is…

      Action, humor, better story than the other 2,whiteley way better than megan fox,surprises,patrick dempsey as a great bad guy, its an insult not to watch this on the big screen. I guess im not “NORMAL”. Dont go into this movie unless you want thrills excitement and action. I couldnt disagree with your review more.

      Thanks, Lori. It sure is a subjective industry…kinda like the book world, huh? One person likes it, one person doesn’t. LOL

    I haven’t seen any of the Transformer movies…I used to watch the cartoon with my brother when we were younger and it just doesn’t seem right that a movie was made from it *sniff*. Kind of like Smurfs…really? I’m going to waste 2 and a half hours of my life to watch a Smurf movie? At least it was only 30 minutes when I was a kid…seriously, a movie?

  7. Ok then, this will be a no for me!

  8. Ciara Knight says:

    Yeah, I’m thinking DVD at best. Not paying for the movie.

  9. KM Wilsher says:

    Wow. We said some of the same things . . .lol. I only gave it the three tickets because there is no way one should watch this on DVD. IF IF IF, you are going to see it at all, see it at the theater 🙂 And if you can, have someone else pay hee hee.
    Can’t beat the company tho, Lynn! 🙂 You rock!
    (sorry everyone my review was sooooo late . . . can’t get the auto to work on my blog!)
