My good friend, KM Wilsher, and I are heading out to Harkins Theatres each month to watch a choice movie.

Now…onto the movie.
Synopsis from IMDB:
The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and to learn its secrets.
Okay, so, the action ROCKED. Kind of expected that, though, right? I came into the movie hearing, “There’s no plot” and “Not sure what I just saw, but it was good.”
I’m pretty sure of what I saw, and I didn’t really like it. I found a bit of a plot, but again, I didn’t like it.
We have the main character, Shia LaBeouf, who is a fine actor, just not one of my favorites. In the beginning he’s screaming his head off like a little girl but then magically morphs into this amazing super-dude who can catch falling women with a quick snatch of his hand, skid under cars and kick the crap out of dudes twice his size.
We have the heroine, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, walking around in skimpy outfits that left little to the imagination as to what was beneath the flimsy fabric. What was her role in the movie again? Other than to be a beauty on Shia’s arm….I’m not quite sure.
I thought the humor was distracting again as I did with the last movie. Really, the only thing that rocked was the action, and it flirted with being over done. It just went on and on and on.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE special effects, kick-butt action scenes, but a girl can only take so many in a movie. Jeepers.
Sorry guys, I have to give the movie Two Tickets:
2 tickets — See it, but by yourself on dvd
Now, head on over to KM’s blog to see what she thought about it: KM Wilsher
What’d you guys think of it? Was I too harsh?
