(lots of action, funny, long, confusing)
Apparently, the race to the moon in the 60’s was spurred by the crash of an alien spacecraft on the moon. The U.S.A. wanted to get there first. Since I remember watching the landing on TV, the scenes of that historic event were really cool. I had no idea that Armstrong and Aldrin found that spacecraft….
Shia LaBeouf (as Sam Witwicky) is having a hard time finding a job , but, has another awesome girlfriend, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (as Carly). With a medal from President Obama, he does not understand why his first job might have to be in the mail room (after all he saved Earth twice!). Well, get over it….
He did, but as luck may have it, one of the people targeted for extinction by the Decepticons works in the same office, and Sam soon finds himself back in the action.
The rest of the movie is action, action, and more action. The part where the Navy SEALS pop up out of the water is scary real, and the people flying through Chicago (I saw a news report that they actually did that!) was awesome! The special effects are likewise awesome. BumbleBee rocks!
The only problem, for me, is that “Transformers: The Dark of the Moon” is a bit long, and the constant action is not just confusing (like who is the bad guy and who is the good guy), it is also tiring.
The ending is predictable, but, everyone clapped (hmmm, maybe they had to pee?).
Good movie worth the price of admission, just empty out before it starts. OK for kids, but, a bit intense and visually overwhelming.
Drive Safe! Never Forget.
