Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the sequel to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
SPOILER WARNING: Plot and/or ending details follow.
Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon"
The film begins with a footage showing the 1961 when The Ark the last ship that escaped a Cybertron war crashed landed onto the moon and is discovered by Apollo 11 but the discovery is hidden from The Autobots.
Back in the present, the Autobots have been stopping humans from destroying themselves. When the Autobots discovers a fuel cell from The Ark that the Soviet Union attempted to use as a power source, Optimus Prime is furious and confronts Charlotte Mearing (Frances McDormand), the Secretary of Defense. Consequently, the Autobots travel to the moon to retrieve five pillars and revive Sentinel Prime not knowing that they have been setup by the Decepticons.
Meanwhile, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) the hero in the previous two films has just graduated from college but is unemployed as he has a difficulty in finding jobs despite having a medal of honor from Obama. However, despite that setback, he has a a new love interest who looks like a supermodel, Carly Spencer (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) and works to feed both of them.
Unlike the previous two films, Transformers: Dark of the Moon has a wider focus rather than revolves around Sam Witwicky or his new love interest.
In the end, the Autobots win yet again with the help of the human, of course. I’m going to save you from the spoiler details though.
Overall, Transformers: Dark of the Moon is spectacular with more fighting sequences and plenty of actions and a solid storyline. However, something just seems missing and if you have guessed "Megan Fox", then you’re absolute right.
- 7 out of 10
- Watch it for the actions and entertainment value and of course, as a Transformers fanboy.
- During the mid-credit scene, Agent Simmons (John Turturro) is arrested after stealing a kiss from Meaning.
