(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
