Few days ago, last day of June, I went to watch Transformers: Dark of The Moon with new set of friends.
It was awesome but..There's a but in my statement!
I couldn't say I had a pretty full course of satisfaction right after I watched it. It's like there's something missing. I've waited quite long for this film to hit cinema and yes I was agitated to watch it. But umpph, there's something missing.
I honestly think the CGI is marvelous. All the robots looked uber-cool in defined details, the action looked compelling and convincing. All of us audience could follow the pace of the actions unlike in the 2nd installments.
But the film sans the cheap romance and jokes would have been better. The jokes were cheesy and lame.
The new cast,Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was another eye-candy after Megan Fox. Both have the similar attributes, they can't act for sure! But in a heartbeat, I'd choose Fox.
The villains on the other hand lacked of something. There were few plot holes in rising the villains' plot of making their own ploy. Sentinel Prime's betrayal didn't look convincing at all.
Sentinel Prime, the main villain looked frail to me. Shockwave, the serpent-like robot is very amazing, it looked cool but yeah, he didn't do much of anything. Megatron barely existed in the movie.
The flow of the story is not even coherent. It's like there's not enough relation/explanation from one to another scene. Not even sync to the previous installment. What happened to the Cube's knowledge in Sam's brain? Too many questions in my mind. Forget it.
All in all, the movie was still awesome with stunning effects. It's far better than the 2nd installments.
The most eye-popping moment, is by watching at the sleek autobots (Mirage, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Sideswipe) in their car modes. Did you see Mirage in car mode? It's red Ferrari 458 Italia. Sizzling hot!
Well I always have a thing for sports car. As a matter of fact, when I was a kid, I wanted to be a racer. Pfft..How pathetic. haha.
Okay. For those who still haven't watch Transformers, watch it and entertain yourself but don't expect too much. Haha. :D
P/s: Laserbeak is cool..!
