Review: Transformers: Dark Of The Moon

Jun. 28, 2011by: Chris Bumbray

PLOT: When the Autobots learn that a long-lost Cybertronian spacecraft is being hidden on the moon, they must fight to keep it's secrets from falling into the hands of the Decepticons, who want to use it's power to enslave mankind.

REVIEW: Good news TRANSFORMERS fans. After an absolutely putrid second entry, the TRANSFORMERS franchise is once again in it's (Optimus?) prime, with a slam-bang installment that lives up to the promise of the first film. Of course, being a film about giant robots beating the shit out of each other, you shouldn't go in expecting THE KING'S SPEECH. This is pure, turn-your-brain-off, munch some popcorn, enjoy the explosions- summer fun.


As far as all-types of eye candy go, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON is tough to beat. I always thought that TRANSFORMERS was the perfect vehicle for Michael Bay who, let's face it, is not one for subtlety. In a film like this, who needs it? This franchise seems to fit Bay's sensibilities like a glove, and unlike part two, this isn't bogged down by too much obnoxious humor (with no sign of the Twins, thank God), and instead of some shit about the Cybertronian after-life, we have a cool, alternate history plot about Decepticons threatening to take over the planet. It's silly, but it's fun, and in a film like this, that's all you can really ask for.

I'd say, as far as the franchise goes, this is the equal of part one. I guess Bay realized how much everyone hated REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, as he's dropped Sam's (Shia LaBeouf) annoying college roommate, and severely cut down on the involvement of the Witwicky parents (Kevin Dunn & Julie White), with them having little more than a cameo early in the film.

Also gone is Megan Fox, who's been replaced by the possibly even-more-gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. While a few nasty digs are made early on explaining Fox's absence, Whiteley pretty much serves exactly the same role, and it wouldn't surprise me if it turned out that an early draft of the script featured Fox's Mikaela having the exact same character beats (with Whiteley's Carly even being into cars).


Considering it's her first film, Whiteley is fine (and FINE!), but she doesn't have to do too much in the way of acting other than running from explosions, screaming, and looking insanely hot at all times. No matter how intense the action gets (and it gets crazy, with Chicago being almost totaled by the time the credits roll), her hair and makeup are always perfect, giving Bay lots of chances to just stop the action and ogle this smokin' specimen of human hotness. Bay shoots her like she's still doing Victoria Secret videos and the first shot following the alternate history epilogue is an extreme close-up of her delectable derriere. No complaints.

As for Shia LaBeouf, while I didn't really care about the early part of his character arc, revolving around his career frustrations, he delivered in spades once we got to the action, and he's growing into a solid leading man. I also liked his rivalry with Patrick Dempsey's character, which pays off in the final stretch, giving Sam a heavier role in the action. Being a Michael Bay flick, there's also lots of humor, with John Malkovich chewing some scenery as Sam's wacky boss (and sporting a bad toupee), and John Turturro returning in a somewhat reduced function- with a hilarious Alan Tudyk in tow. Josh Duhamel, and Tyrese are also back, although both take a backseat until the final, balls-to-the-wall action sequence, which runs a good forty minutes. Heavy-hitter Frances McDormand is on-board for expositions sake (and to play foil to the amorous Turturro), and we even get the seemingly now-requisite Ken Jeong cameo, which seems to be a necessity for ninety-five percent of the movies coming out these days. That said, I like the guy and he's still pretty funny, although he could have been completely excised from the film and it wouldn't have made a lick of difference.

Which brings me to my one big complaint with DARK OF THE MOON the length. Like the other films, this runs close to 160 minutes and they really could have cut a good half-hour out without sacrificing much. That said, it never drags and the last hour of carnage is a blast.


While the action in FALLEN was indecipherable, Bay really pulls back here and makes the action easier to follow, allowing you to actually get a handle on what's happening on-screen. I suppose this was a concession to the 3D and if this device forced Bay to tone it down a bit, it's the one time this format has really benefited a film. I should also mention that the 3D (a format I honestly can't stand) is actually quite good here, and Bay, to his credit, really knows how to work with it. The film is brightly lit, meaning no eyestrain, and we're not subjected to endless scenes where things come flying at the audience.

As for the Autobots and Decepticons, I don't want to give too much away, as there are a lot of fun twists involving a new character, Sentinel Prime, as voiced by the one-and-only Leonard Nimoy (with a great Spock shout-out). Peter Cullen is back voicing Prime, as is Hugo Weaving as Megatron, despite the fact that I'm pretty sure he's been killed at least twice in the last two films (although I remember almost nothing about FALLEN). The CGI work is flawless (other than an odd-looking CGI JFK in the prologue), and the robots look even better than they did in the last two installments. The whole last hour of the film is probably the best pure eye-candy you'll see this summer, and I had a blast watching it (although it has to be said, Steve Jablonsky's score owes more than a little to Hans Zimmer's INCEPTION).

Overall, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON gave me exactly what I wanted from a TRANSFORMERS flick. It was a solid evening of eye-candy, and a lot of fun. While I doubt it's something I'll revisit too much in the future (Bay's films, other than THE ROCK, have been mostly one-shot deals for me), I enjoyed it while it lasted, and it gives audiences their money's worth- even if they pay ridiculously high IMAX 3D prices. This is one worth seeing on the biggest screen possible. If this is indeed the final TRANSFORMERS film as Bay has repeatedly stated, it's going out on a high-note.

I finally saw it in 3D, and I was blown away. Your review analyzes the movie perfectly. I agree with trimming some parts - probably Ken Jeong's part. I had a blast and lost all senses of reality for 160 minutes. That's all I wanted from a movie like this.

Impotent GL fanboy rage... GO!

GL was the single greatest movie ever made! How dare you give TDOTM (a movie I have yet to see) a higher rating! Did you not see the perfect acting in GL, the magestic CGI, the intelligent script? Maybe GL was just too cerebral for you.
I had my mother make a GL mask for me to wear on my hand, which I make love to every night! Anyone who doesn't feel the same as I is a person I hate!

Seriously, good review. Glad to hear this is better than TF2, but I'm still going

it was overwhelmingly disappointing as far as character development or having a script worth givin a shit over, but as far as cool moments it did have a few applause worthy scenes. I just hated how they made optimus ruthless which he is NOT!!!!....the final hour had one too many anti climactic scenes and yet again the transformers play second fiddle to the decepticons. also there were many horribly put together scenes. one second tbumble bee is fighting and the next second he is captured? um

SHOW US THIS STUFF, but again the over usage of soldiers and humans in the finale was distracting from what i wanted to actually see. just bad story telling on many parts. better than the second movie but geez. Michael Bay needs to take a chill pill and revise the actually PLOT and develop actual characters. we could have learned more about the home of cybertron when things were peaceful and if they had romance or not etc...i wanted to learn more than the previous movie about the actual TRANSFORMERS!!!! not the human beings etc smh

This movie was really amazing, truly. Not so actioned packed as the second one yet still knocks you back and pulls off some nice sequences. Although my only problem with this movie is not so much the movie it's self but the horrible 3D. It was the first time I watched a 3D movie and I have to say get rid of that garbage. It does really nothing nor offer anything of importance. Overall though amazing movie.

just saw it!

IT WAS BADASS!

Just wondering if anyone else noticed the shot taken from "The Island" during a freeway scene early on in the flick? Swear to God they took a shot right out of it and added a Transformer into the background. Not a big deal but was on my mind for a bit lol

Great movie thought, tons of fun and Rosie was actually pretty smokin hot in the movie. Not a bad actress either. Kickass way to come back after that trainwreck of a second movie.

Optimus is one bad mutha...

Caught a 9 o'clock showing of this on the EST side of the world and was definitely pleased. They gave us more of what we want (ass kicking robots) and less of what we don't (annoying parents, ghetto robots). By far and away redeems the franchise after number 2.

But Chris, how am I supposed to turn my brain off for 2 1/2 hrs and still be able to drive home afterwards? The transformers movies are all terrible at this point I'm just going out of nostalgia and my blind love for the property. I really hope this is Michael Bay's last Transformers movie and it's taken over by someone who "gets it". None of us grew up with a Sam Witwicky doll and giving these movies that brutal length has always been monumentally stupid for me. But hey, I'm glad you liked

You are so right. Please can someone stop Bay from DESTROYING this series even more. All the ppl who love these movies have obviously NEVER seen the cartoons. I mean even the WORST episode has more character/story than any of these films.

The writing and dialogue was messy, the comedy grating and unfunny and the action scenes beyond ridiculous - even for Bay. I couldn't believe this film was actually made.

MUCH better than the 2nd one

Just came back from screening it and it was definitely better than the 2nd and about equal than the first. The 3-D was really good and the stupid humor was toned down a lot. Most of the "dumb" humor comes from Malkovich who looks like he's having fun and Jeong who didn't need to be in it. I like him in Community but every movie he's in his characters suck. Parents were toned down which is good and I thought the one line the mom said about Sam's new pos car was gold. But everything that was

But everything that was wrong with 2, the poor pacing, stupid humor, the twins, the roommate, etc. is gone from this one and the action is very good.

Also glad I wasn't the only one who noticed the score at times sound a little Inception-ish. Towards the end there's one that sounded a bit like a different version of the trailer music for Inception. I remember the first Transformers some tracks sounded a little like they were from Batman Begins, another Zimmer score.

A little surprised. I enjoyed the first one, didn't think it was great, but enjoyed it. Wasn't planning to see this one, but I got a bunch of friends going, so I guess I am going with now. Glad to hear that this is more like the first film and nothing like the second. Should be an enjoyable waste of time.

I'm worried, as are few others, when I hear things how this film is on par with the first film. That first film wasn't good by any stretch and so far none of the films have come close to approaching the best of the transformers animated series or movie. Can this one some how capture the real characters of the transformers? Other reviews tell me that this time we get to see Optimus as the badass from the cartoon. Again I wonder who the hell saw Prime as this. Just give me a Prime who would

Again I wonder who the hell saw Prime as this. Just give me a Prime who would sacrifice himself, no matter the cost and that's what I'm looking for...And a Skylinx vs Predaking scene would make me pretty happy as well but I won't get my hopes up. Probably wouldn't resemble either character anyway.

I don't know how many reviews I've read on joblo that are content to award movies 7's or 8's for meeting the lowest standards anyone could develop for them - with some qualifier about not being Citizen Kane. I'm not against fun, but unless this is a wild improvement on the first movie ...I'm willing to bet it won't actually be "fun" at all.

Although when it's a comic book movie the Citizen Kane qualifier is replaced a Dark Knight qualifier.

Glad to hear it's on par with the first film, I'm definitely checking it out this weekend.

So no sign of the racist Twins, robot heaven, chatterfuck roommates, or parents acting like weed is cocaine? Shit that's all you had to say!
But if I see one goddamn robot testicle...

"lives up to the promise of the first film....." "...this is the equal of part one." In other words: Transformers 3 is shit.
