Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Patrick Dempsey
Director: Michael Bay (Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, The Island)
This is the 3rd film in the “Transformers” series, again directed by Michael Bay and starring Shia LaBeouf as the main character. Typically, movies tend to get worse as the series gets longer. So does “Transformers 3” also fit this pattern?

Well, the answer to that depends on whether you’re a hardcore fan of the original cartoon or only a fan of the movies. But first, let’s briefly go over the story.
Story: During the original Cybertron war (Transformers’ home planet), an Autobot spaceship evacuated with a secret technology. However, it crashed on the moon later to be discovered by American astronauts. When the Autobots find out about this, they must find the ship and the secret technology before the Decepticons.
I must admit, I was a huge fan of the original “Transformers” cartoon as a child. So I appreciate the effort put into the “Transformers” movies, however they are quite different than the original. I also must admit that I am a fan of Michael Bay’s other movies (e.g. “Bad Boys”, “The Rock”, and “Armageddon”) so I love the way he makes action movies.
Shia LaBeouf plays the same character and most of the original cast is back. The only noticeable change is that Megan Fox’s character has been replaced by a new beautiful girl by the name of Rosie Huntington-Whitely who plays basically the same character.
On a simple level, this edition has nothing new to offer from the first two. If you love good action scenes and don’t care about the story so much, you will love this movie. There are indeed some breathtaking action sequences. However, if you are diehard fan of the originals like me, you might be disappointed because there is very little connection to the original cartoon.
But no matter what your background is, you have to give credit to Mr. Bay—he sure knows how to make a movie LOUD, how to make action look great on screen, and how to make a lot of money!
