Hmmmm, not great...not bad, but not great.
Action is great when it finally gets to it. I liked the very beginning how they tied in the moon with the story, but as soon as that was over, I didn't like the storyline. Great fight scenes, great special effects, but until the end even my 6 year old wanted to go home. I still liked it, but I surely didn't love it. Megan Fox's replacement....they didn't need her in the movie at all. Patrick Dempsey's character and story line sucked, but John Malcovich's character was a breath of fresh air (and funny). They turned Agent Simmons' character into an idiot. Get rid of the lovey dovey crap, make it about unsympathetic aliens wanting something on Earth and having to fight for it. I say YES to a Transformers 4, but ditch every single human character from these movies. They are "played." Stop with the "cutesy" crap, stop with the attempt at Autobot humor, ditch Autobot Wheelie too and any other little wise cracking robots. Make it like the first one but with better action scenes!!!
