Transformers 3D Rocks it.
Movie Grade: A-
It’s never easy to make a successful third in a movie series, but Michael Bay and company did just that with Transformers 3. They built off the same story line as the prior two films, but revealed a new secret of the history of the autobots past.
One of the great components of the prior Transformers films was the coupling of action with humor. This film still combines wonderful (perhaps the best) action scenes with the hilarious and neurotic characters of the past.
Shia LaBeouf does another great job. Supermodel Rosie Huntington replaces Megan Fox and LaBeouf’s girl. There was some criticism to her acting (when isn’t there criticism of acting?), but she does a very good job and certainly can’t be said to not have done just as well as Megan Fox.
The action scenes take place in downtown Chicago and one of the coolest scenes when the characters were getting away from the evil autobot Worm in a building which kept turned over and over.
Another great scene, of course, was the no-green screen shot of the characters in winged suits flying throughout the city. See how they made that here.
The one dry stint in the movie came towards the middle and end when they attempted to retake Chicago. There was a lot of straight action, without much comedic relief we have known Transformers for. Other than that, this movie did a great job, and I highly recommend a view in 3D.
