Transformers 3 is depressing

Saturday, August 06, 2011

Me & WL only managed to watch the final instalment of Transformers a week after our return from Bangkok. Well, it's better late than never. I'd have to admit that I was quite disappointed with the movie. Firstly, the plot was kinda confusing like there was no focus at all. One minute, you see that Sentinel Prime holds the secret to a technology that will revive Cybertron; a hope for the Autobots. The next minute, you discover that Sentinel Prime betrays his own kind & is an ally with Megatron to bring Cybertron to Earth, hence turning humans into slaves.

Secondly, there is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as the damsel in distress. Far worse than Megan Fox, you'd tend to wonder what else she's good at besides baring her skin & screaming at the top of her lungs when she's in deep trouble. Ahhh...I know. Showing off her booty in a panty at the beginning of the movie & standing there doing nothing but look beautiful while robots battle & blast at each other are her expertise. A waste of resources, isn't it?

No doubt the CGI is awesome but it's nothing new anymore, right? After watching the two earlier movies, I'm sure you would have expected the CGI to perform equally good, if not better. What's important is to get the plot right in which this movie failed miserably. Deliberately prolonging the movie up to 2 1/2 hours was totally unnecessary. Well, it's just action flick for pure entertainment. Maybe I shouldn't take it too seriously, eh?
