3 in 1: Transformers Trilogy
"Their war. Our World."
Story: The story is about Sam Witwicky as he is pulled into the middle of an alien war as both the Autobots and the Decepticons look for the glasses of Sam's grandfather, Archibald Witwicky that may hold the key to the survivial of the human race.
Acting: The acting in this film was very good, I never heard of any of the actors in this film except for Jon Voight and Anthony Anderson, who both did a great job in this film. Shia Labeouf did one of the best performances in his career, while Megan Fox did a decent job. Josh Duhmael did a good job as well as Tyrese Gibson. John Turturro did a awesome job in this film for having a small role.
Directing: Michael Bay isn't the most popular director but he DOES know how to make a good action movie, oh wait.. that's been all of his films. He was the perfect fit for something like Transformers and he did a very good job directing it.
Visual Effects: Visual effects are the best I've seen for any movie, let alone a huge actiong film. ILM, you score again!
Score: Steve Jabolnsky is to me the best composer in the buisness and he does a brilliant job composing the score for these films.
Overall: Like him or not Michael Bay brought the childhood toys to life with the help of writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman in way we never thought we would expect or enjoy. This is for an action film, truely magical and that's why I'm giving Transformers 9/10.
"Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing."
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Story: Sam Witwicky is in college now and is trying to maintain a normal life. But after he starts seeing symbols from the touch of a fragment from the all spark, he, Makayla and their new friend Leo are on the run as they try to solve the mystery of who is The Fallen as the Autobots prepare to once again take on the Decepticons.
Acting: The acting in this film isn't as good as the first but is fairly decent.
Directing: Michael Bay let this one slip and it cost him and us dearly.
Visual effects: Better than before.
Score: Still very well done but not as well done as could've been.
Overall: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen proves that action isn't everything and if you don't have a well written story and script to go with the action, then it's never gonna be as good as it could've been. Revenge of the Fallen gets a 6/10.
"You may lose your faith in us, but never yourselves. From here the fight will be your own."
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Story: Couple years after the climatic battle in Egypt, Sam is in post-college failing to find a job. But when the Autobots discover that a piece of Alien technology from a lost ship was found in human possesion, question of the governments loyalty has the Autobots furious as they also discover another long lost item that may end the war once and for all.
Acting: The acting in this film is the best of the trilogy, Shia Labeouf unforutnately can't show his acting skills half of the time because he is written to scream at people. Everybody else does a fairly decent job and Rosie Huntington Whitely is pretty good for her first acting job.
Directing: Michael Bay swung and successfully hit the ball this time. He finally delievers a war movie unlike any other and he knew he had to make it better than Revenge of the Fallen and succeeds.
Visual Effects: Should've won the academy award damn it! lol
Score: Beautifully well done, and fits for the correct scene everytime.
Overall: This film should've ended a trilogy instead of spawning a new film, It was the perfect ending for a trilogy. I'll admit, a couple times watching it in the theaters I nearly cried. Suck it up, you haters. The film brings it's act together and brings a close to not only the trilogy but the best film in the trilogy. It combines the best of horror, action, comedy and drama into one. I give Dark of the Moon a 10/10
All I have to say now to bring this to an end is, One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall.
