Michael Bay’s third installment of ‘Transformer’ franchise – ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ seems to be an apology despite featuring mind-blowing visual effects, computer generated animations and gravity defying stunts in 3D.
‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ begins with a prologue to America’s space program during the 60s and 70s where the US and the Soviets battled out each other to reach the moon, where an alien spaceship crashed. However, what the astronauts brought back from moon unleashes the wrath of evil robots.
Once again, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) is back in action, who has a secret medal from the president which can the save the world and a super sexy girlfriend Carly Spencer (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley).
Apparently, one third of ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ is dedicated to destruction of Chicago – crumbling buildings, charred bodies and alien airships going on rampage.
When the entire world is burning, it’s LaBeouf and his band of humans who miraculously survive only to save earth.
Scenes where mean machines slice their way through the streets of Chicago city are worth your money.
‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ is all gloss, scoring only in its use of technology and ending as a whimper!
Ratings: Three cheers for this one!
