I can take only so much pointless effects set to dramatic music. I like cool special effects and this movie had lots of them, so many in fact that I felt it was over done. The whole movie is pretty much explosions, robots transforming into vehicles, fighting, robot sounds, and destruction. I usually like this kind of stuff, but it went on way too long. It was just ridiculous and made me feel old.
Every time one of the Autobots and Decepticons spoke it almost made me laugh since that they took themselves so seriously. To quote Optimus Prime "In any war, there are calms between the storms. There will be days when we lose faith, days when our allies turn against us. But the day will never come, that we forsake this planet and its people."
I can't blame Michael Bay for continuing to make these movies since people still go see them and they make him money. If he offered me to be in another Transformers movie, I'd gladly accept. That doesn't keep me from giving Transformers "Dark of the Moon" also know as "Transformers 3" by people like myself who refuse to give too much respect to the move just 6.0 stars.
