WESTON, Conn. Actor Shia LaBeouf helps save the day in a war between the Autobots and the Decepticons in the third film in the action sci-fi series, "Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon."
The opening scene shows a 1969 space race and man's first step on the moon when astronauts found a Cybertronian spaceship, bringing the Decepticons back. LaBeouf, who plays Sam Witwicky, chooses to leave his boring job and help the Autobots save the world again.
Sam with Lennox (Josh Duhamel), Epps (Tyrese Gibson) and Simmons (John Turturro) fill the 157-minute film with action scenes which can be exhausting at times. Some scenes could have been cut to make the movie shorter so I wouldn't have been checking my watch on several occasions.
I think boys might enjoy this movie more than girls because of the cars, girls and, of course, the Transformers. I loved all of the scenes that involved humans which were funny, especially the ones that included Jerry Wang (Keng Jeong from "The Hangover").
I give "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" a 5 out of 10 for its great human scenes, and its tiresome Transformers scenes.
