Review
TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON was much better than the last movie in the series, REVENGE OF THE FALLEN (click here), but this one now includes the less overuse of humour and finally, no Skids and Mudflap. I still love the heart-pounding action and the CGI effects, the script isn't too bad at least, I like a lot of plot twists. I'm surprised that Leonard Nimoy aka Mr. Spock from Star Trek does the voice of Sentinel Prime and this is the second time that Nimoy did a vocal performance in a TRANSFORMERS movie since the animated version (click here). I have a few disappointments over the movie which I forgive is that the previous actress Megan Fox didn't return to this sequel with her character, got fired and replaced by the new lead actress.

As I loved the 3D aspect of this film and not only I think DARK OF THE MOON is the last of the Michael Bay trilogy. It's the strongest improvement to we had this coming in theatres. I invite all my viewers to comment on the name of the movie of what they think of it.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever

 and I'm a bit disappointed that actress Megan Fox didn't return to this sequel, probably because she got fired and replaced by a new actress. Not only is DARK OF THE MOON the last of the Michael Bay trilogy, but it's also the strongest and most likely the best 3D film ever. I invite all my viewers to comment on the name of the movie of what they think of it.
Star Rating: (5/5) Best Movie Eve
