As far as Transformer movies go, this one is pretty good. But you must remember, that is compared to other Transformer movies...and that is a VERY low bar.
The good news is this movie actually offers some character depth, relationships, and emotions. Usually it just a bunch of explosions with the semi-truck running around yelling, "I am Optimus Prime!" For those of you that like the explosions, there are plenty. But for those of you that actually like a plot, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
This is still a movie that you can't use any critical thinking while watching it, otherwise the whole thing falls apart. But if you are looking for a decent action flick with a decent plot while you munch on a bucket of popcorn, this movie will fill that need. Just be aware that if you run out of popcorn before the movie ends you might find yourself asking, "why am I still here?"
