TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON 8.30PM, TEN Filmed spectacularly in 3D for the cinema release in 2011, the third Transformers was the noisiest, boys-iest of the bunch. Clocking in at a mammoth 2½ hours, this is a rambunctiously hollow echo chamber of smashing glass, clanking steel and exasperated grunts. Stars Shia LaBeouf. THE MASK OF ZORRO 7.30PM, TEN A swashbuckler with swagger, taking a pretty snappy line in tried-and-true adventure stylings. Young blade Antonio Banderas goes into training to learn how to be a Latin American Robin Hood from a retiring Anthony Hopkins. After clapping eyes on the beautiful Catherine Zeta Jones (playing Hopkins’ daughter, kidnapped at an early age by his mortal foe, the evil local governor), Banderas swivels his hips, cracks his whip and incorporates a dash of Casanova into the Zorro mix as well. A lot of fun.
