Straight up, unwatchable piece of shit. One of the worst screenplays written. In fact, as a whole, the script is one of the worst pieces of writing in history. Every time someone watches this movie, God cries. Did I mention it is a piece of shit?
Yeah it's bad. And not in a good way. It's bad in a bad way. There isn't anything here that you can't see elsewhere, better. Bay insults his viewing audience once again and, in a horribly depressing way, proves that this is all that most of that audience needs put in front of them to stay seated for 2 1/2 hours.
If you want to see a great bad film, get "The Room".
Move along. Nothing to see here.
The annoying blonde actor who always appear with a perfect hairdo in every scene regardless while she is at work, fighting with his pathetic boyfriend, scared of the robot, or just plain dumb is merely represent what this movie about.
Is there really anybody that care about those puny humans except to get a few candy shots of Megan Fox? The action set pieces are confusing consisting of shaky cameras and mediocre robot designs making it impossible to get a hand on who is fighting who. Worthless comic sidekicks and story add to the agony of it all. It is like hearing the sound of nails on blackboard - only the nails are scratches your brain instead.
In a competition for the worst, most offensive film ever made, this is perhaps outdone only by its sequel. Bland, incoherent, badly acted, terrible sexual politics, a quasi-racist robot and..... Did I say it was bad?
The fascism is worse than the filmmaking in this case, even if it do play a part of said fascism. I did not hate this movie. The most offensive of the "original trilogy" or whatever. I watched it on my laptop so I wasn't trapped with it, but, like, even if the style cares not for characters or themes or plot it's not hard to watch.
