Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The third outing for a herd of toys that should have stayed in their boxes."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"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."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"An overlong ordeal, devoid of excitement and intrigue."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"By a thin margin, the best film in the series. Funnier. But that's not saying much."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"If you like mindless spectacle, this is undoubtedly the frontrunner so far this year."
‑ Ali Gray,
"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."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Marveling at its grotesque gigantism doesn't make this two-and-a-half-hour-long movie any less dull."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"This movie is actively making the world a worse place to live. I am certain Michael Bay considers it his masterwork. He's right. God help us all."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Easily transformed into the worst summer blockbuster of the year."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"[Bay], having seemingly learned nothing from the last film, allows just about all of the same mistakes to be made yet again."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"At 157 minutes, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" isn't just a movie. It's a sentence."
‑ John Anderson, Wall Street Journal
"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."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Reader
"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!"
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"Despite an over-long and underwhelming build-up, the final hour of Dark of the Moon is an all-out action fest with some of the coolest visuals ever put to film."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"Intensely juvenile, casually sexist, and blatantly stupid in ways that few if any over the age of "T for Teen" or bereft of a Y chromosome could enjoy. [3D Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
