Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) is back with a new girlfriend, Carly (VS model Rosie Huntington-Whitley) and more Transformers action. When discoveries from the 1969 expedition to the Moon bring about new hopes of rebuilding Cybertron, Earth is in danger!
I think I prefer Megan Fox as Shia’s love interest, she seems more relateable and believable… Rosie is hot, yes, but I don’t think she was very convincing when she confronted Megatron. Plus, she didn’t look very comfortable with the robots. As with any Transformers movie, it is so very sad to see “good” robots die/lose parts! But it always seem that the “bad” robots wreaks the most havoc because they have flashier skills (ie. Shockwave). Quoting Epps (Tyrese Gibson), “why do the bad robots always get the cool shit?!”
I thought there was a brief bromance moment when Megatron helped Optimus Prime in the big fight but I could still be in the cloud of X-Men: First Class. Bumblebee is still as adorable, and I really liked that scene where he transformed while Sam was still in the car – LaBeouf’s express was hilarious! Plus, Patrick Dempsey is a bad guy! WHY??? But he was quite good at playing bad actually and he seemed to enjoy it. Plus, him fighting LaBeouf is good fun!
