    Mr.Nelson has revealed that the runtime for Dark Of The Moon will be 134 minutes which is 2 hours and 14 minutes! That's a long time to sit in the movie theater but hey with Popcorn, Drink, and your Cinemask and watching the greatest movie of the summer it won't seem like it was 2 hours long!

    Interesting, So it's about 15 mins shorter than ROTF and the original.

    Thats great news imo. Hopefully this means the movie will be much leaner than the last 2. ROTF did NOT need to be 150 minutes

    It's not a good sign at all. It's the final chapter and it has a shorter runtime than the first two movies.
    It's going to be disappointing way more than expected.

    Are you kidding with that statement? 14 minutes is going to make or break whether it's good or bad? please do not make anymore statements pertaining to this movie again, ridiculous. I think it's good that it's shorter, with 3D added people will not want to sit through a movie that was 2 1/2 hours long, that extra 15 minutes can be a killer, case in point, ROTF, Saw it with my wife and she complained how long and drawn out the last part of the movie was, if they trimmed the fat it could have been better, If they trimmed Leo the movie would have won an oscar! lol

    Who are you to tell me what I can or can't say?
    If you don't like what I write don't read it then.
    It won't change the fact that a shorter runtime is a huge disappointment already and it means that the production knows that the movie is flawed otherwise being it the final chapter of a trilogy it should have been longer than the previous two, not shorter for sure.

    Also that train wreck of Avatar was in the 160minutes range in useless 3D in theaters and only thanks to marketing people spent a lot of money to watch it multiple times (the best way to go blind).. so going around telling that people wouldn't watch a longer runtime 3D Transformers movie is a really moot point.

    Oh, don't talk such utter nonsense. Longer in absolutely no way means superior. LENGTH was always an issue with these movies - even in the fairly positively received first movie, critics said the final act lasted too long, and ROTF's final battle was a *joke* it lasted so long. Paring a solid quarter-hour off the running time hopefully means the story is tighter and focused. It's a smart move and I'm happy to see it.

    This seems like a satisfying length to me. That's also what she said.

    It has already been reported that the final battle on this 3rd movie lasts approx 1 hour non-stop. So what is your point?
    What critics say doesn't matter, they are paid either by producers or competitors to write negative or positive stuff.
    Bay and Paramount didn't care about them and the first two movies were a huge financial success despite competitors paying critics and invading forums to brainwash people minds with hatred to bring down the movie at any cost--they failed completely the second movie got an higher worldwide boxoffice gross than the first one and it sold tons of DVD/Blu-Ray discs more than the first movie. Just because many people all over the world chose the movies, they liked the movies.
    Now that Paramount and Bay are paying critics to write good things about this 3rd movie shows that they are worried of having a lower quality product and so they go for the brainwashing people mind machine to sell it, which differs from clean marketing, it's dirty business.
