Consensus: Its special effects -- and 3D shots -- are undeniably impressive, but they aren't enough to fill up its loud, bloated running time, or mask its thin, indifferent script.

The third outing for a herd of toys that should have stayed in their boxes.

For good or ill, Bay is the soul of a new machine, the poet of post-human cinema, the CEO of Hollywood's military-entertainment complex.

An overlong ordeal, devoid of excitement and intrigue.

Despite its manifest improvements, there is something so sour and unpleasant about the new film that it left me almost nostalgic for the innocent idiocies of its predecessor.

Marveling at its grotesque gigantism doesn't make this two-and-a-half-hour-long movie any less dull.

If you're going to make a movie in which some of your stars are animated toys and much of downtown Chicago is reduced to rubble, this is the way to do it: shamelessly, with no expense spared and no cliche avoided.

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is one of the best blockbuster I've seen in years. No other action film can compare to what is undoubtedly Michael Bay's magnum opus, this is the film to beat this summer!

How do you rate something that is so awesome and so cheesy at the very same time? From a technical and visual standpoint, it's a mind-blowing action-fest.… More
