281. Transformers 3D: Dark Side of the Moon

In Action on September 27, 2011 at 2:03 PM

Dir. Michael Bay

The Autobots and Decepticons race to learn the secrets of a hidden spacecraft on the Moon.

MY TAKE

Few franchises elicit such equal amount of fan-boy contempt and cash as Transformers.  Director Michael Bay, the one-man Nickelback of Hollywood, once again creates some of the most amazing scenes we can barely even see. Filming in 3D forced Bay to ease up on the average shot length, but the story is still typically convoluted nonsense and the characters are completely interchangeable. I will, however, defend Shia Labeouf for bringing his A-game “holy shit” face to the action, plus the extended climax of a collapsing building and winged skydivers got me pretty pumped.
