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.
