Thoughts on Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Great! The most anticipated Transformers: Dark of the Moon is already on the silver screen.

Know what I noticed? Everyone seem to be frantically buying Transformers 3 tickets as though it’s going be the end of the world – when the Deceptions plan to rebuild Cybertron on Earth.

Oh no, spoiler alert?!

Nah… bet you have watched it once, if not more. I know some Transformers fanatics re-watch countless times (ego boost?) in the cinemas, but I won’t bother watching again.

So… this isn’t exactly a Transformers 3 review. It’s just some personal thoughts and opinions on this blockbuster movie.

Alright, one word for Transformers 3 – Disappointment. Oh wait, I think someone just went “WTF? It’s damn awesome OK!”

Let me justify my statement. Pretty much the same storyline as the previous installments. Decepticons almost win, again, but eventually defeated. It’s simply predictable.

Started off with Sam Witwicky trying to live a normal life that obviously will never happen because eventually again, he’s the first to discovered Deceptions’ dirty conspiracy plan.

Same plot – he warned the Autobots, faced obstacles, tagged chick along, yada yada, Bumblee Bee appeared out of no where, Megatron returned, Optimus Prime believes in freedom and a gigantic battle ensued.

New girlfriend Carly Spencer (by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) is a beauty, but just not right lah. Too tall for Sam. She can run, jump buildings, climb and survive with high heels. Her white outfit doesn’t seem to get dirty. No cuts whatsoever after smashing through window panes. Wut?

You know, she surprisingly knocked some sense into Megatron! Then, Megatron tried to kill Sentinel Prime – but Optimus Prime double-killed them instead. 10 seconds kill. Wut?!

Moving on, despite the predictable ending – there were only 2 unpredictable parts. First, Sentinel Prime turned sides. Second, prince charming Dylan (Patrick Dempsey) was actually assisting the Deceptions as well.

Evil prince in this movie, no doubt.

IMHO, Transformers 3 wasn’t mind-boggling – didn’t go “WOAH damn awesome!” at all. I was quite laid-back throughout the movie. After all, it’s just robots wrestling against each other.

I thought newcomer Sentinel Prime is gonna be the ultimate hero but he turned out to be a bad ass Autobot.

Shockwave, on the other hand, should have done better. With his worm-drilling companion, together they were unstoppable. But despite being gigantic, the worm eventually got chopped to death by tiny (when compared size) Optimus. Pathetic.

Not long after that, Shockwave got gang-banged by a bunch of puny humans. It suddenly became weak and was pathetically destroyed as well. Wutafak man?

One thing worth complimenting is definitely the Computer Generated Imagery (CGI). The graphic illustrations are realistic. The incorporation with the real world is almost flawless.

But it’s funny how a tiny bunch of Autobots and an even tinier bunch of humans managed to defeat a plethora of monstrous Decepticons. Oh come on, they have friggin’ massive warships…!!!

With hundreds (I assume) of Deceptions on fighter jets! But still.. cannot win against a handful of Autobots. They damn suay lah, no wonder Autobots so lucky.

Oh by the way, with stunning and fast cars being featured on Transfomers 3, I thought it could be good enough to be a Fast and Furious edition.

Don’t you wish you own one of them? I want the red one!

Anyway, I think that Transformers 3 would have been better if it ended with a Decepticon victory! If the Decepticon had won, there will definitely be a 4th installment!

Probably… Transformers 4: Return of the Good.

Oh yeah, I still gotta say – Megan Fox is better than that British blonde. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley isn’t “dirty” enough for a hardcore Transformers movie.

Megan Fox’s Mikaela Banes was a total junkie, a damn hot automobile junkie. She’s sexy and gorgeous.

Actually, Rosie is not booby at all. The Victoria Secret model admits to using ‘chicken fillets’ for a quick boob enlargement. Read Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and chicken fillets.

Hence, Transformers 3 is missing the trademark slow-motion “running” Megan Fox used to do in Transformers 2.

Run with skimpy top ahhhh!!!

And that’s where Transformers: Dark of the Moon sequel has lost its special “feature”…

Ahh Megan Foxy… you definitely look stunning with this pose! ;)

Food for thought: If both Autobot and Deception came from the same planet, why do Autobots look decent while Deceptions look gloomy, monstrous and insect-ish? Typical stereotyping between good and evil?

  1. i kind of agree with you bro. Damn lots of “WTF” moments. And the last scene where Optimus prime kills off the 2 decepticons was the major WTF moment, how can the final big fight end so fast.

  2. Actually, I felt Megatron has been relegated as he was only armed with a “shotgun” whereas Optimus has energon sword, energon axe, blasters, jet pack and shield. Almost all Optimus arsenal is stored in his trailer.

  3. I love Transformer 3!!!! But I gotta agree on some point that you pointed out, such as Carly’s dress never getting dirty, Carly’s high heels, Carly’s without wound or cuts and the stupidest part is when Carly managed to convinced Megatron. If I’m megatron I’ll just flicked her off. LOL. But I totally love the action in this movie, super awesome!! yEP, MEGAN FOX FTW!!

  4. To be honest… doesn’t all movie shows the good always win?

    Look at Harry Potter :P Didn’t that happen too? (doesn’t know didn’t watch the Part 1 of Deathly Hollows sorry).

    But yes, they came from the same planet… but totally different family :P. Can’t look the same even though we come from the same family anyway haha!

    Yes I agree Rosie what’s her name (that I can’t even remember because I think Megan Fox was better)… is not as good. She seems all out of place >.<; and did you noticed other then then clean clothes, and jumpy runny crashy… her shoes changed from heels to flats… a number of times :P. Least what I saw haha! I think rosie makes a better Decepticon side person :P

  5. Have not seen any of the Transformers movie in cinema only once over TV. Think now I know why not that keen in seeing the movie got confused who are the good robots or evil ones coz they looked almost the same Bananaz got CVD cant differentiate the colors fast enough or the moves were to fast need more slow motion maybe.

  6. oh, i have not watched this but will be watching it soon perhaps next week, guess it’s still difficult to get the tickets now.. i’m looking forward to this movie after watching the trailer, and it’s gonna be good right?? :)

  7. lol..all that point seems true..good point bro..yeah, megan fox r damn hot!! klise story line huh? just like malay film..wtfark

  8. Yeah, I prefer transformers 1 better. but, so far it was quite good. (:

    But, I’ve expected more of it though. :P
    Yeap, their graphics was greatt!

  9. LOL! Typical storyline of Transformers. I actually stopped watching after Transformer 2. Seems like a lot of logistic faults. Tranformer 1 was always the best. IMHO.

  10. its quite true that with so many Decepticons, they cannot even sense the Autobots moving into the city… maybe they turn a blind eye so movie can last for 3 freaking hours.. :P

    Never mind, just watch for effects already worth it!

  11. I definitely agree with you on Rosie Huntington part. She’s not that good if compared with Megan Fox.

    It is really surprising to see Optimus Prime double-killed Megatron and Sentinel Prime in really LESS THAN 10 seconds! really WTF here..so fast..

    disappointed? Yeah..me too….BUT i’m going to watch it 2nd time..free ticket eh!! :)

  12. holy shit this review gels well exactly with my sentiments EXACTLY! i went WUTAFAK at all the things u mentioned exactly! decepticons should have won then 4th installment would be exciting. but no. micheal bay went disney on this entire series. 200+ decepticons fails at defeating 9 autobots. its not even mathematically logical!
