And... meeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I really don't know whether I liked it or not. It was okay I guess. Barely made any impression though. It was too long though, I know that.

The plot, well you all know the plot. Decepticons wreck shit for 2 hours then lose, while human characters get in the way. Except this time there was a human villain, and Sam's parents were barely in it, and that girl they to replace Megan Fox, despite not being an actress, was a better actress than Megan Fox. So actually the humans weren't as annoying as they were previously.

However, humans got waaaaaay too much screen time in the final action scene. It must have been like 70% humans and 30% robots. Plus the film just ends as soon as they win. It was like; Bad guys dead, 5 second voice over from Optimus, roll credits.

Also, there was hell of a lot of plot-induced-shitfuckery. For example, transformers need spaceships now? They did space travel just fine without them in the first two films.

Spoiler:
 

Megatron seems about 20 foot shorter as well for some reason.

Bay used special effects footage from another movie. That's just laziness. I don't think he cares anymore. Lebouf was so dissapointed that he said he's done with the series. AND NO ONE TOLD ME FOX WASN'T GONNA BE IN THE MOVIE. She was the only reason I watched those mediorcre explosion fests.

Were there any cool Transformers in the movie, like Shockwave, Omega Supreme, or the Dinobots?

Apparently he used footage from a movie he directed a few years back, The Island (2005). I actually didn't notice during the movie, but I saw articles about it and it's true.

And I don't care about acting skill, not many in that movie have much. I just cared about how hot Fox was (even if she does have toe thumbs).

Oh, I forgot the most important thing.

It was better than Revenge of the Fallen.

(although the fight in the forest in RotF is probably the best action scene in all 3 movies)

Starscream also died, Had his right eye grappled by LeBouf and then had a Spiky Time Bomb shoved into the other. Atleast Megatron jobbed like a boss, Starscream jobbed to LeBouf Shadow of The Colossus style.

...So, I guess that means no more Transformers movie? Or atleast one made by some-one else?

I just checked the character list, and I was ashamed that Mirage, and Wheeljack were changed.

Starscream's job in this film was to get plans explained to him very slowly so the audience could understand what was going on.

I don't get why people think it's better than the first one.

There's a lot of people who hated Jeong's character.

It is a bit much when he's just suddenly there and being Ken Jeong. It's like Bay didn't bother to introduce him properly because he figured the audience would instantly be at home with Ken Jeong being crazy and no one would care how haf-baked it was.

Because in the first one the autobots were little push over bitches who coward'd to Starscream. Optimus didn't have his Trailer, too much useless parent/ /girlfriend/bs side story that didn't have to be in the movie, at least in TDOTM the side story with his g.f progressed the plot along.

But it was sooooo boring compared to the first one. DotM felt about 5x as long as it actually was while the first one was reasonably paced.

I agree there, the pacing in the new one was really slow. I felt like passing out about half way through.

But I was kind of disappointed with Optimus' performance in the first one whereas he got buffed in the following two.

Ridiculously buffed. And I didn't like his attitude in the sequels, especially the third one. He literally yelled "WE'LL KILL THEM ALL!" before going into battle in the final scene. Then at the end the bad guy is broken and crawling along the ground and begging for his life and Optimus just friggin' executes him, point blank.

The idea of the Autobots going on black ops missions in the middle east on behalf of the US was also really weird.

I just got back from seeing this, and to be frank it was awful, Michael Bay at his most self indulgent; way too long, the pacing was all over the shop and the story itself (which started out quite strongly) soon lost its way in amongst the one note EXPLOSIONS and SLOW MOTION. (If anyone could make a cohesive and completely non-contradictory timeline to cover all three films, I'd be astounded.)

On the other hot subject; no Megan Fox. Not that big a deal, because I don't really think she's anything special, but just to say "she dumped him" was BS. She was willing to go through hell for Sam in the first two films, and then she decides to dump him, despite them finally proclaiming their love for each other in the finale to RotF? Yeah right. If you're going to replace someone, at least have a half decent in-universe explanation for it. Also, Megatron getting about one minute of screentime before jobbing to Prime. WTF was that all about? That was over in literally five seconds.

RotF was a better film. Yeah, I went there.

Hey now, let's not go nuts. RotF had better action, but it also had the twins and Sam's mother getting high.

Yeah, but DSotM felt like two and a half hours of Michael Bay punching me in the head.
