Transformers: Dark of the Moon a WILD RIDE!

TF3 has to be one of the most exciting movies I have scene this summer so far! The action sequences are Amazing and the use of CGI in a live action movie has to be the best I have ever scene since the Star Wars Prequels.

Humorous in the right areas of the Movie. Rosie Huntington-Whitely gives a strong performance as Sam’s new girl in his life in his struggle to have purpose on earth, especially in the Megatron Scene.

I saw the movie in 2D and will see it again in 3D! You have to remember this is a TV cartoon Series adapted to a feature length movie with many moving parts I think the adaptation is well done IMHO. In Closing, a GREAT Summer Movie that doesn’t take itself too Seriously! Go see this one.
