Movie Review 4: Transformers 3

Transformers 3: Dark of The Moon

I somewhat feel like
I've watched a whole lot of movies before

Maybe after this I should
talk about anime?
We'll see..

The show starts about how in 1961, the Ark,
a Cybertronian spacecraft
carrying an invention capable of ending
the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons,
crash lands on the far side of Earth's Moon.
The crash is detected on Earth by NASA,
and President John F. Kennedy authorizes
a mission to put a man on the Moon
as a cover for investigating the craft.
In 1969, the crew of Apollo 11
lands on the Moon.

In the present,
the Autobots assist the United States military
in preventing conflicts around the globe.
During a mission to Chernobyl,
to investigate suspected alien technology,
Optimus Prime – the valiant leader of the Autobots
– finds a fuel cell from the Ark,
discovering it had survived its journey from Cybertron.
The Autobots are attacked by Shockwave,
who manages to escape.
After learning of the top-secret mission to the Moon,
the Autobots travel there to explore the Ark.
They discover a comatose Sentinel Prime
– Optimus' predecessor as leader of the Autobots
– and the Pillars he created
as a means of establishing a Space Bridge
between two points to teleport matter.
After returning to Earth,
Optimus uses the energy of his
Matrix of Leadership
to revive Sentinel Prime.

Meanwhile, Sam Witwicky is frustrated
that he is unable to work
with the Autobots
and is failing to find a job.
He also becomes envious of the
close relationship between his new girlfriend,
Carly Spencer, and her boss Dylan Gould.
After finding work,
Sam is provided information
by his eccentric co-worker
Jerry Wang about the Ark,
before Jerry is assassinated
by the Decepticon Laserbeak.
Sam contacts the now-independently
wealthy Seymour Simmons,
and together they realize
that the Decepticons and their leader,
Megatron, are murdering people
connected to the American and Russian
space missions to the Ark.
They locate two surviving Russian cosmonauts,
who reveal satellite photos of hundreds
of Pillars being stockpiled on the Moon.
Sam realizes that the Decepticons
raided the Ark long before the Autobots'
mission and intentionally left Sentinel
and five Pillars behind to lure
the Autobots into a trap –
Sentinel being the key to activating the Pillars
and the Decepticons lacking
the means to revive him.
The Autobots rush to return Sentinel
to their base for protection
but Sentinel betrays them
and kills the Autobot Ironhide,
revealing he had made a deal with Megatron
to ensure the survival of the Cybertronian race.

Sentinel uses the Pillars to transport
hundreds of concealed Decepticons
from the Moon to Earth,
and Carly is captured by Gould,
who is revealed to be in the service of the Decepticons.
The Autobots are exiled from Earth
at the demand of the Decepticons to avoid war,
but as their ship leaves Earth it is destroyed
by Megatron's second-in-command,
Starscream, seemingly killing the Autobots.
The Decepticons, led by Megatron and Sentinel,
seize Chicago as their agents place
Pillars around the world.
Gould reveals to Carly that the Decepticons
plan to transport their homeworld
of Cybertron to the Milky Way,
then to enslave Humanity
and use Earth's resources
to rebuild their world.
Sam teams with Robert Epps
to go into Chicago to save Carly,
but they are nearly killed by Decepticon forces
before the Autobots intervene,
having concealed themselves
during the launch of their ship
to convince the Decepticons they were destroyed.

Working together, the Autobots and Human soldiers
manage to rescue Carly
and destroy Soundwave,
Barricade, Starscream, and Shockwave,
with Optimus using Shockwave's arm-cannon
to blast the Control Pillar,
disabling the Space Bridge.
Sam confronts Gould as he reactivates the Control Pillar.
After a brief fistfight,
Sam knocks Gould into the Pillar,
electrocuting him to death.
Bumblebee and Ratchet arrive
and destroy the Control Pillar,
permanently disabling the Bridge
and causing the partially transported
Cybertron to implode.
Optimus and Sentinel fight while Carly
convinces Megatron that he will be replaced
as leader of the Decepticons by Sentinel.
Sentinel severs Optimus' right arm,
and is about to execute him
when Megatron intervenes,
incapacitating Sentinel.
Megatron invokes Optimus for a truce,
having the desire to become
the one-in-charge again.
Optimus attacks Megatron,
knowing Megatron's true intentions,
decapitating and killing him.
Sentinel pleads for his life but Optimus
executes him for betraying his own principles.
With the Decepticons defeated,
Carly and Sam are reunited
and the Autobots accept that
with Cybertron gone,
Earth is now their home.


There's a lot that I'd like to comment
about this movie.
I don't think I'm the only one
who thinks it this way.
From the beginning of the movie
to the very end of it,
none of the things that I see
I could accept and agree.

In Transformers 2
they already portray that
the Decepticons has been on planet Earth
since ancient history.
Now, they are trying to use Apollo 11
to say that The Ark arrived on
the Earth's moon during 1963.
It seems that movies with Apollo 11
or any spaceship from 1960's
is becoming really popular in movies
which is sickening.

Besides that the Matrix
again in Transformers 2
it was shown that the Matrix was
and how the hell can there be
another Matrix safely in
Optimus's chest thingie?
The conversation was too fast
too quick for anyone to understand.
I was finding it hard to understand
the whole thing.

Aside from that,
MEGATRON is being a pussy
in this movie =w=
Megatron...Lord Megatron
we're talking about Megatron here
where he fears no one
where he is known to be
the most powerful Decepticons
in the Universe and not
one bit did he shows any mercy
in other sources like comics and such.
Megatron surprisingly
listens to what a human has to say
about his position and status.
Normally he would sadistically kill
any human in sight.

Oh how I could have forgotten the mother ship!
I bet none of you remembered
didn't you?
because none of the characters
were paying attention
towards the mother ship!
No one even glanced at it!
What did they do?
They just kept on running and running
shot here and shot there.
Then ooh~ Megatron is dead =w=
Human is victorious~ bla bla~
What happened to the mother ship?
Oh the little autobots took care of it
from the inside.

Lots of people suggested that
Transformers 3
should be parted into part 1 and part 2
like Harry Potter.
But no~ we all don't know
what Michael Bay is thinking.
Maybe he's getting bored with the movie?

Transformers 1 was the best
Transformers 2 was 50/50
and a lot of people
are expecting Transformers 3 to rise back
But no~ it just went worse
with Megatron and Sentinel Prime dead
will there be a Transformers 4?

That's All For Now!
Thank You For Reading!
