I am old enough to remember the Transformers series of the 80's. Yes it was cheesy, but I loved it.

The rebooted live-action has been hit-and-miss with me, and sadly this is more miss than hit.

The plot is that the Autobots discover a dead leader on the moon, who turns out to be more than meets the eye, and the Decepticons attack in order to bring Cybertron to Earth and enslave humanity.

If you are a fan of the previous two films, you will love this; transforming robots, big guns, bigger explosions, lot of running around, some very hot women, a major crisis... you get the idea.

However, for me, this movie suffers with the same problems at Revenge of The Fallen - what plot there is (and it is limited), makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

SPOILER WARNING
If Sentinel was defecting to the Decepticons at the beginning of the movie, why did they shoot him down and lose all that cool technology?

Optimus and the Autobots spend large chunks of this movie, not being where they should be and thus making a bad situation worse... but with no explanation.

When they do turn up, it is evident that the Autobots have been to the General Custer school of military tactics - they allow themselves to be divided, with no attack co-ordination.

Why do the bad guys have to tell their captives the one weak spot in their whole plan? I mean come on!

Ultimately, the action pieces are fantastic and the CGI is near perfect... but the script is full of holes that made me feel like I had wasted my time.

I absolutely hated this film. Below, more of my impressions with some limited SPOILERS. Also, contrary to my principles, I will try to keep that one short.

"Transformers" movies have for only purpose to entertain and amuse us. The first one was in this aspect rather succesful, the second was absolutely not and this one is much worse even than the second one, for following reasons:

- even an action film about giant robots needs a scenario; it shouldn't be so hard to write the scenario of a film about giant robots (my chipmunks wrote a couple of those); but in this film there is no scenario. At all. Meaning somebody in Hollywood took a great lot of money for doing absolutely nothing. Lucky b@st@rd.

- the film is impossibly boring and much too long

- there is no humour; not even ONE good joke (some lame ones though)!

- too much of darn Sam Nitwicky (which also means much too much of darn Shia LaBeouf). This character was the least succesful thing in the first film, was more or less annoying in the second one and in this one he is simply unsufferable.

- Sam parents were supposed to be funny - they are just obnoxious jerks

- Megan Fox is gone and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a poor substitute; OK, granted she has a great figure - but her character is perfectly useless, hardly says anything and for most of the film she only runs after a bunch of soldiers so they can save her when she gets in trouble

- you can't really watch this film with your kids - the language is too strong, even for a 12 years old (it should really be rated "15");

- noble Optimus Prime acts in this film like a total @hole - and also a murderer!

The latest live action Transformers movie comes to dvd.

Once again we touch in with Sam Witwicky, who is now out of college and looking for a job. He's lost one glamorous girlfriend. But gained another. The Autobots are still working with humans and fighting the Deceptions. But the latter have another dastardly scheme in the works.

As this comes to light secrets of the Apollo programme and the war that led to the destruction of the robot's homeworld are revealed. The Earth comes under threat. Humans and Autobots must fight together to save it.

After the hostile reviews of the second film, this doesn't really do much to fix the problems people had with it.

Firstly, Mikaela is no longer around. Because of well documented problems between Megan Fox and the production team. She is rather cursorily written out. In a manner that, given the emotional journey the two characters went through in the first two films, just doesn't really convince.

Sam's new girlfriend Carly is played by model Roise-Huntington-Whiteley. In her first acting role. Once you get used to her accent she's not terrible but she's ill served by a character who might as well be Mikaela all over again, as there are times when you feel she might just be saying lines that were originally written for Megan Fox.

The goofy humour of the second film has almost disappeared. Save for a few moments early on. And there are less adult references. But this is still a twelve certificate, thanks to some of the fight scenes.

The plot is serviceable enough, and the film does get very strong in the middle when all hope seems lost and people have to rise to the occasion. This all leads to a huge battle sequence that goes on for the final third of the film.
