This has always been my favorite TransFormers movie due because of how action-packed and mayhem it has in the movie. And I still believe it’s still good, but if it’s still my favorite, that’s for me to decided after watching the rest of them. But this one in particular was just fun, and action-packed and when I first saw it pre-teen age, of course I loved it. Now, it’s okay and I still enjoy thw action-packed moments, but it is a mess of a movie!
The movie is a follow-up/sequel to the last movie, TransFormers: Revenge of the Fallen. It follows Sam Witwicky (Shia LeBeouf) who has graudated from college and is struggling to find a job. After he secures a job, he’s hardly working when he’s told about the Dark Side of the Moon. He partners up with the Autobots to stop evil from destroying Earth to get their own planet, Cybertron.
Going into this movie, you have to have a mindset knowing this movie has a plot but it’s main goal is to go all out with the action-packed PG-13 rating. In my opinion, it’s a hard PG-13 to a light-rated R restriction due because of how intense, violent this movie is. The swearing is constant, with a few F-bombs scattered throughout (I think). So without a doubt, this movie has a collosal amount of fun with the action side of the movie. But on the other side of the movie . . . it feels like a mess, and something that wasn’t taken time.
The plot is easy and simple . . . but this movie is everywhere with the plot that it is easy to get sidetracked from the main plot. There is so much happening in this movie that you feel like it’s a non-stop moving movie that has to slow down and take its time on going more into depth of the plot and character building. In fact, besides Sam Witwicky who by this point, if you watch the movie series in order, we know enough about that we care for him(ish) all the other characters in this movie are unmeorable and people you could care less about!
This movie is the pure nature of constand action without letting go once. It dervies from the other movies being action-packed, but this movie is beyond action-packed. It’s action in nearly scene (I say we have 2 hours of action, and the rest of the 30 minutes of the movie is hardly anything to remember), and it’s so constand that you wonder if this is the pure definiton of action . . . and for me, it sounds about right! Micheal Bay is known for his action movies (his latest movie, Ambulance was a non-stop thrilling ride in an ambulance), and whenever I think of him, he’s the guy you want to go to if you want mayhem and action constantly . . . because he’s our guy!
Now, the action sequences in the movie are a heck lot of fun . . . they’re still fun even not watching this movie for over 3 years. It’s what keeps this movie from being stale and dry and what redeems the rest of the movie poorly written side of it. It entertains me so much, that I just it outweighs a lot of the negative side (I rate movies mainly of entertainment, and if there’s other good things I add it to the Rate of Scale Measure). It’s a movie you can’t take too serious, but it’s one I can actually watch now & then. Yes, it’s a mess, but yes: it entertains me a lot!
This moie is a mess. No doubt about it. It’s a movie that frustrates a lot of people because of how messy it turned out to be, and how wild-frenetic the movie turned out to be. But it’s a movie that you just have to stop, and just relax and just enjoy the Bayhem action movie. People struggle to watch these series, but for me: they were the movies I grew up during my pre-teen/tween tears. They were once one of my favorite movie series!
