(Shia LaBeouf) is caught in the eye of the storm, joined by his pretty girlfriend, Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley). While Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen), Bumblebee and the other Autobots protect the humans, field commanders Major Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and Master Sergeant Epps (Tyrese Gibson) spearhead the final stand against the Decepticons, comprising Megatron (Hugo Weaving) and his menagerie of terrifying predators. Once you accept that Transformers: Dark Of The Moon junks logic and the laws of physics at every turn, it’s a high-octane hoot that delivers all the thrills and spills you could ask for. Aside from James Cameron, there isn’t a better director of all-guns-blazing action than Bay. He orchestrates some truly jaw-dropping sequences here including an explosive highway pursuit and a breathtaking escape from a toppling skyscraper. Bay also embraces the 3D format with gusto, not least when stuntmen in wing-suits sky-dive through Chicago and we get a thrilling sense of height and speed as they swoop between buildings with dizzying precision. LaBeouf wisecracks opposite an impressive supporting cast including Frances McDormand and John Malkovich, while John Turturro reprises his role as conspiracy theorist Simmons. Huntington-Whiteley is a worthy successor to Megan Fox. Like Fox, HuntingtonWhiteley possesses that rare ability to maintain perfect hair and lip-gloss in the midst of robot Armageddon
WISECRACKS: Shia LaBeouf returns as Sam Witwicky.
