Transformer: Dark of the Moon
First of all whoever does the voice for Optimus Prime has thee best voice of all time! Now with that out of the way. This movie was too long and sappy for my liking. It had it's good moments but ehh the movement of the film is too up and down. Plus too many gimmick points for me. The nerve watch, the "using the girl as bait," the "human traitor" really the list can go on and on. The fight sequences are good and the actually transforming never gets old. I didn't like anything about the storyline. They should have had Sam working with the Government from the start instead of him looking for a job and a cool but unnecessary John Malkovich and Ken Jeong cameos. Where is Unicron where is Ultra Magnus? Let's get some actual good story lines and prominent characters. The Rackers and the "Twins" and all the tiny weird other Transformers that serve as robot filler are a waste.
I applaud Mr. Bay for the way he cranks these things out but at some point they should chill a year and work on the content a little more. I how come Optimus can't fight or gets killed or nearly gets killed ever movie. That cloth Megatron was wrapped in was pretty awesome though. Shockwave was kinda impressive. I still don't really get what the Decepticons were trying to do though. I thought they were trying to rebuild Cybertron but then they were bringing Cyberton to Earth. Ahhhh stop the madness. Plus it was soooooooooooo longgggggggggggg. Good grief. They probably shot the whole 4th movie while I was in there. Shia kicking the hell out of the engine was the funniest part of the film.
