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.
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.
I did a presentation on this film that involved me getting a class to create a film idea in the span of 20 seconds. It was called Loose Lips, and starred Nic Cage as the President of the U.S. who had to make a big speech that would save the world, but he lost his lips, and therefore, couldn't speak. So thanks, Michael Bay.
Really quite embarrasing this is one of the top box office films of all time. A study in effects over all else. One giant set piece after another creating just a numb experience for the audience. Created by one of the worst directors to come out of Hollywood with two of its modern most inept stars.
