'Transformers 3' Shockwave head shotThis is a spoiler-free movie review from Bruce Simmons of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, aka Transformers 3 or TF3. This is a working man’s movie review where I don’t get special invites to sets or early screenings. I go to the theater with you. I experience it with you.

With that said…

This third installment of the Transformers film franchise was directed by Michael Bay and starred Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, Tyrese Gibson, Patrick Dempsey, Frances McDormand, Alan Tudyk, John Malkovich and a cadre of old and new faces in the rest of the cast. It’s distributed by Paramount Pictures.

I watched it in 3D in XD large format at my local Century 20 movie theater. It clocks in at 2 hours and 27 minutes, but it didn’t feel like it.

Initial Thoughts:

Transformers 3 was a well thought out Transformers story from both the human and robot sides of the movie. It felt like the franchise had matured to this point in time. Points in the movie were pulled from the history of the franchise and expounded upon. There was back-story to help present this movie and other details that didn’t seem to contradict anything from the previous two movies. Plus, I think dads will love taking the kids to see the movie (I’ll explain later) and the spots of humor injected into the story-line are well placed and not over done. I think Kids will love it .I think fans of the franchise will really enjoy it.
