Simple Review - It's Pretty Good
on January 10, 2012
If you have liked the first two of Director Michael Bay's Transformer movies, you will like this one as well. If you thought Transformers was good, and Transformers: Revenge of the fallen was just OK, then you are in the same boat I am, and you will be pleasantly surprised by Transformers: Dark of the Moon. If you hated them both, then you're not reading this.
The visuals are, as has been the case with this iteration of Transformers, outstanding. The Blu-ray quality is a must in my opinion as the details in the action sequences are spectacular. I personally don't have a 3D television so I cannot comment on that feature, but, the video and audio quality made watching in high definition with an average sound system a very fun experience. The visuals are very clear, the colors look great, and all of the explosions rumble proudly.
The story is, well, good enough. I wasn't watching for the story. I was watching for big robots and stuff blowing up. The story delivered that in large supply. If the goofiness of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen turned you off, I can honestly say that it has been toned down here, and the action, not the dialogue, carries this film. You will have a much easier time believing that giant transforming robot aliens exist, than believing that Rosie Huntington Whiteley chooses to date an unemployed Shia LaBeouf however, when there is a billionaire "McDreamy" Patrick Dempsey knocking on the door.
Overall, transforming robots look really cool blowing up a city, and that's what this disc is all about. Enjoy.
