    I am watching it in 2 hours. No spoilers please. And I don't trust movie critics who think that expecting an Inception-esque movie out of Transformers is a sign that they are an intelligent audience.

    But I just wanna know if it is better than the first.

    Yeah, on par with the first in terms of quality but totally different tone. Much darker this time around.

    More coherent and epic than RotF, MUCH less toilet humour.

    Yep their equal for me, this has better plot and better action, but the original still has that certain magic about it.

    Okay, of course nothing can rival the first due to the novelty. After all, it was the first time the concept was introduced. I just need assurance that it is a worthy successor to the first film. IMO, the second wasn't. I was so embarassed of the second one, I never watched it ever again after the theater showing. Never bought the DVD.

    I thought it was leaps and bounds better than the first. I was damn impressed.

    Nope, it is definitely better than Revenge, but the first is by far the best of the trilogy. I just watched it at 9:00 in IMAX 3D, then again at midnight in 2D and I will definitively state that the CGI in DOTM looked fake and unconvincing while the TFs in the original looked absolutely freaking real (they were undeniably robbed of the Oscar they deserved). In addition, the story of DOTM is ok, but it was very much fleshed out in the first and a very good story overall. I really prefer the first movie over the two sequels.

    I was initially ok with the first movie but liked it less and less each time I saw it. I felt quite meh about ROTF but gave it three more chances to be sure. Those subsequent viewings did little to sway me. Too many things bugged the hell out of me.

    So...now we're at round three. As with the second movie, I want to be fair and give it another shot, but right now, I'd say I walked away from DOTM even more disappointed than I did with ROTF. (To clarify, I'm referring to initial reactions only I don't mean I think ROTF was better - I can't say either way on that at the moment) It's actually to the point that I really have little desire to spend any more money on seeing it again. Right now my favorite of the three would be the first...I guess.

    I don't think I deserve any shit for that. Despite not being happy with the first two I still gave the new one a chance. I didn't go in wanting to hate it. I would have preferred being happy with it, but it didn't work out that way.

    I think the most frustrating thing about the trilogy is that there are great movies in there dying to break out but they are denied true greatness by recurring flaws.

    The main problem I have with the series as a whole is that there is really no overall story arc to them. They almost seem like different episodes in a non-serialized TV series. There are a lot of different parts of the TF mythology that Bay and Co. tried to bring out but the execution in bridging them together into a coherent trilogy is almost non-existent.
