    wow, are these reviewers for real? I'm shocked that they all seem overly positive, I wonder what the newspaper and magazine critics will say about this, wonder if those will be as positive. I was going to wait to see this but if it's as good as they people say it is, I might have to go next week.

    it might actually be because of 2...that's fate for you.

    my only concern with this is that a lot of these reviews are coming from places I myself am not familiar with. There are a few key players I'm waiting to hear from.

    That being said, these this was definitely not the response for ROTF

    I have a feeling a lot more of the reviews will be more about their thoughts on bay than the film itself.

    Here's HitFix' Drew McWeeny's take.(one of the people I was looking forward too)

    Or some of it anyways. I look forward to reading the rest.

    Looks like Bay redeemed himself Big time from ROTF (Which I remind you wasn't a box office failure , it still made a massive killing at the box office despite the movie critics rants .) But I think Bay wanted to leave on a high note by delivering a huge bang to his final run on this franchise and if the rumours are true of Spielberg directing the next three films then this franchise will continue to thrive on success .

    I'm excited to see this. I loved the first one. Revenge of the Fallen entertained me, but was just terrible as a movie. I'm just a sucker for action movies, and special effects. Say what you will, the series may have ***** stories, but the special effects are outstanding and impressive. I mean, the first Transformers that came out in what, 2007? The visuals still look overly passable. But yeah, I can't wait.

    the IMDB is 73percentile at the moment, with a lot of positive reviews and one "really low" that reads like this

    gotta love TF fans lol

    LOL that negative review sounds like someone who didn't even see the movie and only watched the trailers. Why was there no mention of the 3D?

    Hahahahaha you can't even take that review seriously. I'm not to discredit reviews just because they say bad things about a movie I like but wow that review isn't a review, the dude has never seen it. Plain and simple.

    I saw Transformers 3 last Thursday (two days ago) at a press screening. Unfortunately there is a critical embargo until 27 June (with an official paper signed before entering the cinema).

    So I can not say anything except: :wow:

    And give some tweets (translated from French):

    - OMG
    - Keyword: "Blak Hawk Down"
    - Embargo so we do not detail, but 2:37 not make us want to puke, thank you 3D: Michael Bay has learned to make long shots.

    I can't wait to see it again in IMAX 3D. It must be totally crazy.

    Predicting at least a 70% tomatometer. Everything I've seen so far points to this being a legitimately good action flick.

    that much was evident the minute they said it would be, promised and then backed it up month after month with nothing but impressive choices and positive feedback/buzz.

    I have a feeling it won't be till july 16 that the healthy skepticism finally stops or rather will be called out for what it actually is.

    -bays been doing long shots since the 90's
    he just likes to pick his spots.

    Looking forward to the tweets.

    WOW! Even though these are only local news channels, I'm still happy to see it's being perceived well. I really am interested to see what the critics say who hated TF2 in 2009.

    I like what movie web said about T2.
    that films action wasn't insane based on premise alone, it was dope because of context, setup and tension.

    It's highway scene for example.
    I hope that's what he's getting at with his comparison.

    I wouldn't go by any of those top reviews. Those are the kind of outlets that get put in commercials where the quotes are as big as can be with the source small as can be, and that means the movie isn't good.

    I'm not dismissing this yet, I just wouldn't go by those reviews.
