Early reviews had it as being too long which I do agree with for once. There was too much filler and it did sag in the middle a bit. Early reviewers also said that Sam Witwicky's parents were not needed. I am sorry but I have to disagree. His parents are always needed. I think they are unbelievable in all the movies especially the mom (Julie White). I loved the second one (Revenge of the Fallen) so much because they had a much bigger part. Now, on the subject of Megan Fox's (MaKayla) replacement, Rose Huntington-Whiteley (Carly). Yes, a tad bit better actress than Fox, but I have to admit, I missed MaKayla. Despite the "so not Oscar worthy performances" of the previous movies, she is still a part of them in my eyes and I have to say, I missed her. Also, she could have gotten dirty just a bit. I know if I slid down a skyscraper, I would have at least gotten some smudges somewhere on my person.
KUDOS! I say again, KUDOS on the new supporting cast. Frances McDormand portrayed a USDA prime rated bitch and did it with class. And yes, Patrick "McDreamy" Dempsey was deliciously bad and certainly pulled his weight in this huge summer blockbuster. John Malcovich was simply brilliant as always. His comic timing was on point at all times.
Aside with the length, the movie was great. It's thoroughly enjoyable but it's time to end the franchise. It had surpassed what it can do on the big screen. It is, dare I say, "More than meets the eye."
Thank you and see you at the next blog.
