Plot: In 1961, a spacecraft named Ark crashed on the moon, which was detected by NASA. It carried an invention which was efficient enough to end the war between the beneficent Autobots and the Maleficent Decepticons. President John F Kennedy asks NASA to land a man on the moon to investigate, in the fear that the Russians will find out about the object before them. In 1969, Apollo 11 along with Neil Armstrong (Don Jeanes) and Buzz Aldrin (Cory Tucker), secretly lands on the moon and investigate about the craft.

Analysis: From all the parts, Dark of the Moon is the best and the first one which has shown some results of the events occurred. Bay has improved the 3D action and the light level. Robots being the real reason why people go and watch Transformers and that too better than the previous ones. May be it did not proved to be a great film due to some or the other reasons, but it was a fun watching the film.

Star Performances: Shia LaBeouf (Sam) has always been the reason why people spent so much on this series. He proves through his acting that no other can be cast in his place. McDormand and John Turturro are playing the main supporting roles. Turturro has again built his own importance as an FBI agent, though having less part. Rosie Huntington- Whiteley also played well as the sexy girlfriend, replacing Megan Fox She’s known to be one of the “Sexiest Woman Alive” >> Read More... Megan Fox . Ken Jeong’s character was also enjoyable as the co-worker of Shia.

What’s there?

The timings, the action, the plans – these all made the movie. The credit of success only goes to the amazing 3D action scenes.

Due to which, the battles and the thrilling parts seemed more vibrant and entertaining. The action scenes are very better than the first two parts. Also, there were awkward and unfunny scenes from Ken Jeong and John Malkovich.

What’s not there?

There could have been more story, more acting from humans. No doubt, robots did a brilliant job but expected this from humans too. The use of abusive language is very excessive which is not suitable for the kids or teen boys.

Also, somewhere the subtitle ‘Dark of the Moon’ seems confusing as the word ‘side’ is missing. It gives no meaning to the subtitle without the appropriate word. The director, Michael Bay Michael, who was adopted by Harriet and Jim was ra >> Read More... Michael Bay , should have included more of the story, but he focused only on the violence, tall robots, falling of buildings, battles.

Verdict: Kids with the interest in robots, toys and having toys of Hasbro, then this movie is for them. Amazing 3D visualization with big robots and their battles, all in one movie, you’ll definitely have fun watching it.
