Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Yesterday, it was the day Transformers 3 came out and it just happened to also be Orange Wednesday's meaning 2-4-1 offer. Perfecto for me and my boyfriend who both love the Transformers franchise.
Obviously, there has been a lot of drama surrounding the third and probably final part to the robotic story. Apparently, there has been mixed reviews due to the confusion of the narrative and of course the new female role.

The plot surrounds the end of the world as humans know it. Cybertron is the original home of the Autobots and Decepticons and now, it is coming to earth. This is the main storyline - about the decepticons taking over the world and using the human race as either slaves or to they would become extinct. Plus, a twist in the narrative, someone switches sides but I won't say who or which side.
It is jam-packed with action, especially the last fifty minutes with the huge battle scene which always gets the audience on the edge of their seats. The camera flips from scene to scene quick, easy so that the audience doesn't miss one thing.
Even Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whitely) plays her role in the huge battle like Megan Fox did in Transformers 2.

This brings me to the battle of the girls.
Megan Fox vs. Rosie Huntington-Whitely

The Transformers girls are always near cars, it seems...

So, there are different rumours as to why Megan Fox is not in Transformers 3. From her point of view, she wanted to leave the franchise. I, however, believe the other side: she was sacked. Who would want to leave one of the biggest selling franchises in the world? She would be a complete psycho for leaving! I believe she was sacked and I know that it hurts me to say it because I loved her in the previous two films.

Rosie Huntington-Whitely wanted to try new things and different career paths as she has been a model for the past nine years. She was excited to be chosen, especially as a newcomer to the Hollywood business. She is a Brit which obviously means she brings that sultry, well spoken voice to the film making her seem like a very sexy choice for the new female lead.

Acting wise, it is obvious that Megan Fox has more experience, but give RHW her due, she does do a good job and she makes the drama more dramatic which is what the film needs. One annoying thing (which in the situation any girl would) she screamed a lot! She was more the girly girl character whereas Megan Fox would have toughened the role up a bit. It is a change in character afterall.

Both women are young and sexy. No-one can deny that and if you did and you did it in front of me, I would shoot you, in the face.
I wouldn't but you can't deny it.
Anyway, both girls are at complete opposite ends which is a good thing because if Carly was exactly the same as Michaela, the fans would think that this new girlfriend was just a copycat of the other.
Fox is the dark haired beauty whereas RHW is the angelic blond and both actresses bring their beauty to very different roles.

As I was watching the film during the take over of the world, I was wondering where Megan Fox's character would be right now. Would she be dead? Or would she be on a motorbike somewhere in the dessert, racing away from the Decepticons. I'd like to think the latter. Also, I thought: is Sam thinking about his last girlfriend right now? Hoping that she's okay? I doubt it because he was so set on saving Carly.

That brings me to Shia LeBeouf. What a great actor and comedian. He makes me laugh so much! The way he reacts to things in the film is hilarious because he is overexaggerative and he screams for about five seconds longer when he is safe which some might see as something to get over. Nevertheless, he shows an emotional side throughout the film to his friends, the Autobots, especially bumblebee when there is a scene in the film full of suspense filled with emotion.

I have just read that Shia LeBeouf has just resigned the Transformer franchise stating that there is nowhere for his character Sam Whitwickey to now grow to. LeBoeuf feels that he has done all that the character will allow him to do.


What do you think of it?
