Review: Third 'Transformers' film beautiful but brainless

(Continued)

THE FINAL SCORE: While filled with a cavalcade of mind-blowing effects, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” once again relies on those effects to make you forget the movie is supposed to be telling a story — and a better one than the first hour is mired by.

That being said, it’s perfect for children who loved the first two films (though parents may want to exercise caution with kids sensitive to violence) and adults looking for a film they don’t have to think through.

EXTRAS: Several big league guest stars have secondary roles in the film, including Alan Tudyk, Ken Jeong and John Malkovich.
