If you didn’t like the first two Transformers movies, don’t bother with this one; you’re not going to be converted. But if you are a fan, or just a little set back by the complicated story of “TF2,” you’ll be happy to know that Michael Bay delivers.

The improvements are easily recognized with a good balance between an expectable amount of transforming and a plot that is more interesting and a little less confusing.

Although there are a few imperfections, this one was worth the price of admission. Watching Optimus Prime go all robot psycho on the bad guys is my kind of summer fun.

“Freakin’ awesome,” were the first two words I heard at the end of the movie, and I agree 100 percent. Rarely does a third installment of a movie take my breath away, but I was totally blown away.

“Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon” will go down as having the best action sequences to date. However, this movie had some of the best Hollywood hotties to substitute for lack of a better story line. No doubt the ending was phenominal. There was so much to see that you shouldn’t sit too close to the screen. I highly recommend seeing this movie.

This is the third installment of the “Transformers” series. Automatically you expect the special effects to be larger and more spectacular than previous movies. You will be entertained by the powerful explosions and the violent action packed scenes.

The traditional theme of good vs. evil will certainly provide an enjoyable plot. Slowly the story unfolds and each character reveals their true allegiance. An enjoyable movie.
