REVIEW:Over the July 4th weekend, we watch the third installation of the Transformers franchise, I paid for $6.00 ticket, which is a great steal and every penny of that was worth it.
Megan Fox was not missed, at least not by me and my friends. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Carly) played the new girl in Sam's (Shia Labeouf) life. They met when Sam was given a medal by President Obama. It is crazy how they incorporated man's first trip to the moon with this moon. Know we know why we haven't been back to the moon. haha. All kidding aside, that went well.
I've seen Thor and Green lantern and while they have great CGIs, they lack luster on their script. The humor has been always great in all Transformer movies. The banter between parents and son was always so hilarious. I read a lot of user reviews on Yahoo and many of the movie goers said they did not like it. It has something do with with the unnecessary presence of the girlfriend, hooker clothes, Sam being arrogant, and soldiers not learning anything from the first movie. I think I can see where they are coming from and once upon a time I was that critical too. But now I realize... this is an ACTION movie, and ever since the beginning it was not really geared to have such great plot lines. You kind of need to fill out the missing pieces, they cannot explain every single scene in the movie. And really when it comes out down to it, its all business. If you wanted a great story line go home and watch Good Will Hunting or Pursuit of Happiness. They put the girlfriend in there because they learned that sexy women in the middle of a battle field; sells. Sam was arrogant in that one scene because he is frustrated with his life and saving the world is what he is good at? But you know that's just me. I was immensely entertained and impressed.
