“Transformers 3,” which I didn’t see, hasn’t gotten nearly the bad reviews as the second film, but there were still some pretty good ones. Will Leitch:
Bay’s “humor” has often been compared to that of a 14-year-old boy, but I think that’s being unfair to 14-year-old boys; it’s closer to that of someone with a serious mental defect who also is just starting to learn the language… This is soul-crushing, brain-rotting drivel to an infinite degree, expertly produced and displayed the way only the truly cynical can pull off. Future generations will look back at this film and see, again, why the American empire was doomed to fall. This movie is actively making the world a worse place to live. I am certain Michael Bay considers it his masterwork. He’s right. God help us all.
