TRANSFORMERS 3 Review: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley No Megan Fox

Total Film has reviewed Michael Bay's latest opus, potential Academy Award Best Picture nominee Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Well, why not? Stranger things have happened.

Below are a few snippets from Neil Smith's review. Transformers 3 opens in the US on June 28.

Transformers 3 … might struggle to equal the sheer exhilaration of Bay's 2007 trilogy-starter, but it's a whole lot more coherent and fulfilling than Revenge Of The Fallen.

Admittedly, it takes a while for the pieces to fall into place and for characters (flesh and metal) to reveal their true colours. But once they do, the stage is set for a final hour of über-destructive robot wars in the streets and skies of Chicago

Now for the bad news. British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is awful – awful! – as LaBeouf's new love interest, sucking the life out of every scene she appears in like some pneumatic Dyson sexbot.

Introduced with a leering pan up her Victoria's Secret pins, she achieves the unlikely feat of making Megan Fox look like a proper actress, particularly at moments where she is required to be in peril.

Huntington-Whiteley is so terrible, in fact, she makes her co-stars bad too. LaBeouf, for one, has rarely looked so sweatily desperate than in scenes where he is obliged to simulate ardour.

  1. emre

    Person who choosed Whiteley for the movie (Casting by
    Denise Chamian ) should give up that job and find another job. He ruined a million dollar movie.

    Megan Fox had emotional and natural acting, Whiteley has no acting but stayed there like a fashion model, made movie very unrealistic.

  2. Tim

    I agree, the girl was terrible and completely ruined the movie. Like, she was there only for the looks, there was no emotion involved with her acting.

  3. susie sullivan

    Between her lips looking like they were inside out because she had injections top and bottom, and her breast implants, plus her false eyelashes, I could not stop thinking of her when the other scenes were shown. Why in all that is holy, do women destroy there lips to look like a birth defect!!!!!!!!

  4. transformerfan

    I think Rosie is quite a stunner, yes I am sad that Megan is out, especially for her character as I think she and Sam deserved to be together after going thru all what they have in 2 earlier movies so its difficult to believe they just broke up like that, but to be fair Rosie ensures that the oomph factor that Megan had brought to the franchise continues unabated…LaBeauof is sure lucky! and yes Transformers 3 rocks!

  5. Leebog

    Seriously, this young woman looked fabulously sexy. Unfortunately for her, Megan Fox looked much better. My wife and I watched the 3D version this past weekend and both said the same thing. She was only in the movie to look good and every scene she was in just did not work. She was not a part of the films story except to goat Megatron and see really was not very good at that. Somehow they need to bring Megan back.

  6. Joy

    You know what, I completely agree. She was painfully emotionless and every scene she was in was brutal to watch. She had no role in the film other than looking good and whether she was hiding from Decepticons or about to be killed, you could tell she was focusing only on looking good. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I wish Megan Fox had kept her mouth shut and stuck it out to finish the trilogy.
    When Sam was determined to save Carly, I wondered "why would you want to save that bitch?" I didn't see any sort of connection between them; to me she was disposable.
    She's not even that pretty.

  7. Now that was harsh. Wow. This was her first acting role though and I plan on seeing the film at some point. Besides, she's beautiful.

    Also keep in mind that acting in a film like this isn't really required.
