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.

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
