Transformers: Dark Of The Moon (12)
Friday 25 November 2011
How's this for damning with faint praise: the third dose of robot Bayhem isn't as bad as the last one.
If Transformers was an overly busy romp, then Revenge of the Fallen was cynical eye vomit. Hopes for the threequel weren't high, especially with 3D promising an extra dimension in queasiness. But it's "okay" – just. There are massive problems – star Shia LaBeouf is an irritant; primping twig Megan Fox is replaced by pouting plank Rosie Modelling-Emptyhead; the story is a slave to illogic – but it moves at a lick, the visuals are easier to digest (on 2D disc) and you don't feel like you've got a migraine when it's over.
