    Find the first Transformers: Dark of the Moon full movie review here. The reviewer gives away no spoilers, except for a few minor details that some of us didn't already know
    (e.g. The Twins are in it).
    He was one of a few lucky people who got to see a rough version of the film's full cut.

    Enjoy!

    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    EDIT: The initial writer of the review (Capone) went on to say this after the whole 'Twins' saga...

    "Hey, everyone. Just to be 100 percent clear, I'm not referring to the "The Twins" here; they are most definitely not in this film. I'm actually referring to
    Wheelie and other similar smaller robots, who act like streetwise teenagers.
    "

    Love it. That sounds really, really promising. Yay for not having Sam's parents.

    I just woke up to read an article on Yahoo that was specifically about them being yanked from the movie.

    Interestingly, that article's no longer on the site.

    Sounds great, and looks like he confirmed the film is longer indeed: First hour and half is story, last hour is Chicago, at least 2 and half hours so people can chill out about the length.

    Think he might mean Wheelie and his buddy. That thing with Megs having spiders crawling in and out of his open wound sounds creepily awesome!

    Sounds like the movie is going to be great! I hope they end up releasing it early like they did with the other two!

    It is a little disappointing to me that Sam's parents aren't in it much but if the tone is a little darker then it's understandable

    Twins being in it is awesome also! I hope they aren't toned down too much though I loved them in ROTF

    I wouldn't think so? he said Yes, they're back too, but let's just say they're toned down.
    Brains wasn't in the previous movies that I know of to be back

    I for one am dead chuffed about this. A positive review from the off is certainly a good start. Especially from someone who admits to not buying into the Transformers fandom. July 1st cannot come soon enough.

    I am however ticked off; on a side note some bell end on YouTube put up a massive spoiler where the recent trailer has been placed. I won't divulge but if you see the trailer on Serrr123's channel, don't look at the comments. Can't tell if it's true or not.

    Do a search on AICN for Capone's reviews of the previous two movies. They were REALLY negative, so I think his opinion here is a little surprising to me. He usually does reviews every week on AICN, so he's pretty legit.

    I will give it one caveat, though: He was brought out to the set at one point, so maybe that biases his opinion a little bit. But I don't think he'd BS just because he got to see a behind the scenes look.

    as to trustworthyness, any review is an opinion and you have to READ the review to see if you agree to the points he makes. AICN tends to be very agreeable to films of this nature, many of them are nerds there.


    battle in chicago lasts an hour? now that is amazing.
