Saw it last night. And Its defiantly the better Transformers movie… But as well as know that's not really saying too much. But this movie (as a transformers fan) has the most going for it out of the previous 2.
I was just excited that the transformers (when on screen) has personalities. Previously the most personality we got out of the robots were the twins... But this time around we got to know Bumblebee a little bit, they finally decided that make all the robots gray moving metal as a bad idea, and gave each Autobot its own color and you can now tell them apart.
I perfer the first half of the movie over the second half. Mostly because as much fun as actions scenes are they get really boring quick (at least for me).
Even though this isn't the Transformers story, I did like the protagonist. Sam is kind of a dick, but in the I like to watch it like I watch House kind of way. Also Carly just made me the laugh the entire time. The movie spent way too much time glorifying her. Also did anyone else notice in the ending how they made sure Not-Megan Fox's thumbs were in every shot?
Overall the plot just kind of bounce here and there. The editing was complete shit. Its like they gave up, and said edit this movie like its a trailer. CG was great, but I mean we knew that going in. I didn't see it in 3D, but I could tell that there was multiple shots that would've looked great with the gimmick glasses.
Also did anyone else get bothered by the Squirrel-suit Parashooters 5 minute side adventure? That could've been easily edited to less than 30 minutes and it wouldn't effect the movie at all.
But then again, this guy makes a lot of good points; http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/escape-to-the-movies/3634-Transformers-Dark-of-the-Moon
