You know a project is really dumb when Megan Fox (of all people) walks away from it. So Transformers 3's fate is sealed even before it starts - rightfully so. But give them credit; at least the visual effects implemented in action sequences here are beyond imagination. Just that there's no story. Or acting. Or sense of direction. What happened to the director of fun movies like The Rock and Armageddon? You can watch the entire movie with the volume muted, as there's no need for dialogue in 2 and 1/2 hours of robots transforming into chairs, wallpaper, or yogurt.
PS: And they got the Iranian flag upside down.
