1.0 out of 5 stars Michael Bay, you have ruined my childhood!, October 26, 2011
This review is from: Transformers: Dark of the Moon (DVD)
Why would you take a franchise that had so much promise, and turn it into a monstrosity of a movie?

When the first Transformers film was released back in 2007 as an `80s child I was highly anticipating my shape shifting robots on the big screen. When I found out that they took the time to gather Peter Cullen to go back to his roots and voice Optimus Prime I was awestruck. After a fantastic film that didn't really give me enough robots that I anticipated I was eager for more. Then came `Revenge of the Fallen' More robots, intense action, but unfortunately more humans and horrible acting in a over 2 hour film. After that a promise was made by Michael Bay that the third film was going to be one of the greatest action films ever and yes there would be more robots and more character development.

`Dark of the Moon' came, there were some amazing action sequences, and yes more robots...BUT...no plot, no acting skill and just a bunch of special effects and explosions to cover the mess all up. This movie has the word fail written all over it I don't even want to purchase this DVD. Hell, this movie makes `Revenge of the Fallen' look good and that says a lot! At this point I am devastated after 4 years of what could have been one of the greatest stories ever told on film based on a true animation revolution, I was left with disgust and sheer disappointment. Take these movies...maybe not the first and bury them deep underground and let's never speak of them again. If there is a Transformers 4 or a Transformers reboot, you can bet your money that I will not be sitting in that theater.

I agree with this review. The special effects were great, but the plot ruined everything.

No list of this sort is complete without including "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace." It was stunningly incompetent then and remains so today. No-one was even trying.
