    I went on the opening day to see Transformers 3, because i was a bit too excited. First of all i must say the 3rd movie surpassed my expectations. There was a lot of twist in the plot which i liked because i couldn't tell where the story was going. The plot was well done IMO. The Visuals was great as expected (i saw it in 3D). On the battles/action side of things i was not that impressed. Some stupid things happen in battle (it's expected) but thankfully it was not that overly stupid. The battle scenes were a bit on the short side. Nonetheless there was epicness in battles with slow-mo's and what not, which was pretty well done. All in all i would rate this movie 8.8/10. Best movie for the year thus far. Have you seen it yet? What do you think?

    I seen it Tuesday night. Hands down, better than the first two films. It was still a drag with the length though, since we went in at 11:30 PM and came out close to 2:30 AM, but overall a great way to finish it. IMO, The 3D was amazing and the film actually kept me interested with it's plot.

    On the spot, I give it an easy 9/10
    EDIT: Yeah... it's the best flick I've seen this year. Even if you hated the second movie I still suggest going to see it. One of my friends hated it and purposely went to sleep during this movie because he figured it would be just as uninteresting (in his opinion) as the second which it was not.

    I have to say I was quite disappointed with it. I think pacing is something very essential in a movie and this one really didn`t got it right. I also agree, that some things just happen for the sake of it without having any impact on the cast, which imo wasn`t as good as the technical side of the movie.

    Still worth watching, if you like action movies: A solid 6,5/10 from me!

    What I really liked is that now they actually managed to deliver a good 3D-experience without loosing too much colour. It is not as crisp as without the glasses but it really isn`t as bad as it was before... no doubt a step forward!

    I plan on seeing it eventually.
    I dont plan on it being a good movie. Especially after the first two.

    This was ultimately the best Transformers movie so far. The Plot was Meh and the Movie was pretty much a Generic Transformers Movie until the last hour. That is when everything went down the special effects were amazing though the 3D and CGI was purely top-notch.

    Wondering whether to see it just to see how bad it was after the absolute crapfest that was Transformers 2 (I once had an argument with some friends who said it was amazing. I'm sorry, it was shit.) Likelihood is that I won't though.

    I thought it was total fucking shit.

    It was basically composed of a horrible and convoluted plot with pretty CGI effects scattered all over to make it look good (I thought it looked mediocre) and make the masses buy out 3D screenings. If you think that the plot was good, then you might want to watch more movies. And I was annoyed as heck when it seemed that everyone in the theater was in total bliss.

    It was painful to watch. .5/4

    The series seems to be getting horribly worse and worse.

    Transformers: 3/4
    Transformers 2: 1/4
    Transformers 3: .5/4

    I'm going to see the movie next week.

    There's something odd about me and Transformers movies. No matter how shitty they turn out to be, I still enjoy watching them. This movie doesn't seem too bad.

    I can agree with you here [​IMG]

    You're gonna enjoy this one.

    I watched the first two Transformers films again in anticipation of this. I have to say that the second wasn't as bad as I remember, apart from those annoying racist stereotype robots.

    As for the third film, it was good, but far from perfect. I watched it at imax in 3D, and it was one of the better 3D films I have seen, I would say I like the 3D effects more than Avatars.

    Transformers 3's main failings are that it is badly paced and far too long. Also it lacks both action and transformers in the first 90 minutes. The film focuses on Shia LaBeouf far too much for my liking, especially the first half, which doesn't even feel like a transformers film. If anything I would say that I felt as if I had watched two films by the end of it, the first 90 minutes being a comedy and the last hour an action flick.

    The first 90 minutes had genuinely hilarious moments, but it didn't feel anything like a transformers film, at times I even forgot that's what I was watching. I think if 30 minutes of comedy had been cut out it would have been better for the overall film. The transition between comedy and action film was really abrupt, which made it feel even more like two films for me. And by the last half hour I just felt drained.

    Also the addition of Sams new girlfriend, played by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, felt really unnecessary. She is even more redundant than Megan Fox's character, and I will even go as far as to say she is a worse actress than Megan. I just found her really unconvincing in every scene she was in. I don't think transformers needs a female lead who when the action starts, does nothing but run around and look worried.

    Like I said overall I think its a good film, but Michael Bay just did a really sloppy and self indulgent job. The film would have gained a lot with better editing to reduce its length, and it really needed more action scenes and less Shia comedy hour in its first half.

    This is what i wanted to say but i don't like typing long shit...

    You called everything i felt, the first 30mins was good then there's a hour of comedy/unnecessary human stuff. Then the rest was action and what i really wanted to see. To me they involved the humans heavily, a bit too much.....

    Its an absolute mess of a film, its just Bay slapping his dick on the screen thinking its huge when in fact a mouse is laughing 'cos his dick is bigger.

    The first one was ok, some shit parts here and there but its pacing wasn't too bad, this isn't as bad as the second but still full of very generic characters. Also I never thought I'd say this but I wanted Megan Fox in this! She is a monumentally shit actress who is only attractive to 12 year olds but MAN she is a whole ton better than the excuse of an actress they have on this film who lets say is only good for gonzo porn.

    That was the actress' first time. Yes I looked it up. Turns out she is a model and Transformers was her first ever acting. I must say though its not bad. But honestly to hate the movie because one person isn't in it is retarded in my opinion. It was an incredible movie. Best out of 3 in my opinion. Least they got the 3rd perfect. But anyways all I gotta say is the movie was epic and I will watch it again and again. In fact I'll go watch it now on my iPod. lolz [​IMG]

    I quite enjoyed it, but it had some things I disliked. Most of these are already stated (quite a long time without action, Carly etc.), with one addition: Dylan.

    Movie was easily the best out of the three. Lost of things go wrong, lots of plot twists, kept me going, I liked it.

    Parts of the movie just made me wanna yell, "YEAH BITCH."

    New girl is ten time better than Megan Fox just cuz I'm more of a blonde-girl guy myself and Rosie Whiteley is stunning.

    Good balance of comedy and action, I'd see it again.
