    As a performance-art act of juvenile Id-fulfillment, it's magnificent. Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Dark of the Moon is hardly a fleet production, but here Bay makes his best, most flexible use yet of all the flamboyant bigness at his command: Computer-drawn characters and human actors seem to occupy the same narrative for once.

  • Steve Persall

    Not rocket science by a moonshot but sporadically dumb fun.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Bay doesn't care about your soul, he just wants your money - but he at least makes sure you go home feeling exhausted and spent rather than vaguely dissatisfied. It's a fair exchange.

  • Jaime N. Christley

    While I still protest Bay's too-hasty cutting (many shots are good enough to warrant a few extra seconds), his set pieces, and his sets, are magnificently entertaining.

    Moon delivers the popcorn in gigantic fist-fulls of fun.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Nothing you see makes any sense at all, but the sensations are undeniable, and kind of fun in their vertiginous, supercaffeinated way.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Not a great movie -- not even a great sci-fi action movie based on toys. But it is brisk and eye-catching, it builds to a truly impressive action set piece, and it's the most fully-realized 3D film since "Avatar."

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The scorekeepers at the various sites that rate critics' enthusiasm for a film shouldn't even try to elicit a Pass or Fail grade from me on T3. I'm a fascinated, stupefied outsider. Just mark me Present.

    Pass the popcorn, dude; this shit rocks.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    Its urban devastation knows no peer. Robots smash into each other with steely ferocity, and the humans - well, they do a fine job providing comic relief.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    If you're going to make a movie in which some of your stars are animated toys and much of downtown Chicago is reduced to rubble, this is the way to do it: shamelessly, with no expense spared and no cliche avoided.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The franchise remains as much an endurance test as a movie, but at least a better Bay has delivered a leaner, meaner, cleaner 3-D rage against the machines.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Solidly mindless, breathless summer fun.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    He concocts a climactic war that flattens downtown Chicago. Bay is such a little boy's director. You know he picked that city because it's the one with the best rock-'em-sock-'em street names. Wacker! Wabash!

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    The result may still be a big, bloated spectacle, but it's a big, bloated spectacle you can just about follow.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Dark of the Moon is capable of having a little fun with itself. In one scene, mini-Autobots watch "Star Trek'' on TV, not noticing that Spock has the same voice as Sentinel Prime, the formerly moon-stuck 'bot who's rescued and revived in order to play a major role in this installment.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Stinting on story, dialogue or character development, Bay leaves us with little more than destruction and a hollow, clanking spectacle.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    But don't worry about remembering the characters - the movie certainly doesn't.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    One small step for action movies, one giant leap into the abyss of mindlessness.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    This "Transformers" is better than the second film (though that's not saying much), with some enjoyable bits here and there.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    The millions of man hours put into producing this techno shock and awe must be staggering. Everyone got his job done, but somewhere along the way, the movie got lost.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Oh, what a hollow experience Dark of the Moon is! Bay is so afraid of boring his audience, he pitches every scene at the same high volume right from the first shot, and the effect is exhausting.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The only saving grace is that this time around, the script (yes, there is one, and it was concocted by Ehren Kruger) has occasional wisps of lucidity, and Bay delivers – overdelivers – on the mayhem.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Marveling at its grotesque gigantism doesn't make this two-and-a-half-hour-long movie any less dull.

    Slate Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    All the problematic aspects of the Hollywood bad boy's filmography - reactionary rah-rah patriotism, sneer 'n' drool female fetishization, callously detached bloodletting - remain in soul-shattering force.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    An improvement on Transformers 2, but then what isn't? To paraphrase the Bard, it's a tale, full of sound and fury and extremely stupid dialogue and nonsensical plotting and preposterous stunts and robots punching each other's heads off, signifying nothing.

    Empire Full Review
  • Todd Gilchrist

    It's true epic filmmaking that's toppled over its tipping point: after the 20th explosion and 64th wall of shattering glass, its enormity undermines its impact.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    Amid the windy speeches, fiery explosions, exposition dumps, and product placements, there are a few treats to help the intelligent moviegoer - drawn to Dark of the Moon by peer pressure or kitsch factor or an insatiable desire for overstimulation - through the ordeal.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    The overwhelming sci-fi action spectacle is a merciless sensorial assault that leaves you with something akin to post-traumatic stress disorder.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    LaBeouf, who appeared to hit a low in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," has sunk to greater levels of incompetence here.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    A work of ineffable soullessness and persistent moral idiocy.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    A visually ugly film with an incoherent plot, wooden characters and inane dialog. It provided me with one of the more unpleasant experiences I've had at the movies.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Anyone hoping to engage even a single brain cell, however, is out of luck. Which is too bad, since popcorn blockbusters don't actually have to be mind-numbingly stupid or soul-suckingly empty.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Director Michael Bay, Hollywood's answer to the Antichrist, isn't primarily interested in your soul, though his movie does a pretty effective job of sucking that away (and sucking, in general).

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon - high on any list of the worst blockbusters ever - is a movie bereft of wit, wonder, imagination, and any genuine reason for being. Watching it makes you die a little inside.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    The first ten or fifteen minutes of Michael Bay's movie tremble, unaccountably, on the verge of being fun. [11 & 18 July 2011, p.101]
