Transformers: Dark of the Moon

This subtle, witty character drama delves into the sensitive issues of what it means to be human in the face of . . . oh, wait, no. This is a movie about good robots and bad robots. Bad robots want to enslave humans. Good robots want to help humans. Humans shoot little guns. Robots shoot big guns. Things explode. Humans yell. Go, good robots, go!

ClearPlay In Action!

ClearPlay filters out the usual suspects in this series of robot films: violence, language, crude talk, and some sensuality. With filters the film is perfectly watchable, and due to the fairly straightforward nature of the plot, the occasional skips won't trip you up.

Will the Movie Transform Me?…

If you liked the previous two, you’ll like this one; if you didn’t, you won’t. I can tell Michael Bay was trying to learn from the previous two installments by attempting to insert more character drama and make it easier to tell which robots were good and which ones were bad, but the movie succeeds the most when it just gives up on the character stuff and blows up Chicago. The money was spent on special effects, not on the script, so if you like a crazy CGI robot slugfest, the last third of the movie will be your movie paradise.

Rated PG-13 for intense prolonged sequences of sci-fi action violence, mayhem and destruction, and for language, some sexuality and innuendo; 157 min; Directed by Michael Bay
