Final verdict, mixed reactions. The story first; the Autobots are living peacefully on Earth and are helping humans resolve their worldly conflicts. As they continue to help, they are searching for any clues about Megatron, their enemy, and Cybertron, their home planet. Sentinel Prime (Nimoy), the leader of the Autobots, was carrying a technology that could save their race but was intercepted by Decepticons and his space craft crash landed on the moon. Neil Armstrong found this site and NASA has kept this information a secret from the world. Optimus Prime (Cullen) learns about it and revives the Sentinel to lead the Autobots once more. However, unknown to him, Megatron (Weaving) has a cunning plan up his sleeve to take over planet Earth once and for all. Sam Witwicky (LeBeouf) basking in his fame and glory after saving mankind twice, cannot find himself a job. Along with that, he is not being involved in the Autobots missions which has made his life even more frustrating. To add more fire, the boss of his super-sexy girlfriend Carly (Whiteley) is showering her with gifts and compliments that Sam cant take anymore. The action sequences and special effects of the movie are mind-numbing. The insane new technology has provided the utmost clarity and detail that this movie demands. However, there are some scenes which look like a video game but that aspect can be overlooked. Shia LeBeouf's role has been over-shadowed by the Autobots and he seems to be a forceful addition since he was present in the earlier movies. What was even more disbelieving were his insane stunts and falls that left him with little injuries and minor scratches. All in all, the movie is worth watching only to enjoy the clarity of the special effects that too in 3D and no more. The movie is all about its graphics and loses out on all other aspects.
