“Remember this: you may lose your faith in us, but never in yourselves. ” – Optimus Prime
Number of Times Seen – 2 (3 Jul 2011 and 4 Sep 2014)
Brief Synopsis – The Autobots and Decepticons race to uncover ancient artifacts left on the moon 50 years ago.
My Take on it – Yes, like most of you, I started to feel that this was getting to be too much.
I enjoyed the first two movies of this franchise, but this one no longer can be classified as above average entertaining sci-fi.
I felt that they were just trying to hard to change things a bit and in the process just skewered the concept and left us with very little originality to enjoy.
Being a HUGE fan of the space program, I did like the way they weaved the space race into the story. It was actually quite clever.
I understand why this was the final movie with Shia LeBoeuf and I think it was a smart move to ‘retire’ his character since he has been useless in both sequels. His presence in the first one was warranted tho.
The special effects are once again wonderous and I will always love the way they integrated the Transformers into the realistic world especially during the combat scenes.
If your a fan of the franchise than you might enjoy this enough to see it once or twice, but it isn’t deep on any level and feels like a mediocre installment to something that actually started out on the right foot.
It has slipped up too many tines since then tho.
Bottom Line – This series just gets less interesting as it goes on. Very cool integration as always between special effects and real world. Only for the real die hard fans of the series.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy

Ended the franchise on a bang. Except for when it the franchise continued three years later, oddly enough. Good review.
Guess that happens too! 😀
