Sound Off: Michael Bay's 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' - Thoughts?

Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It all began when Michael Bay took on a live-action version of one of the most beloved toy franchises back in 2007, kicking off the start of his trilogy. Now it all comes to an end. Hitting theaters in 3D, IMAX or just regular ole 2D this week, is Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the third (and presumably final) movie in Bay's Transformers series. So how is it? Is it as bad as the second one or possibly even as good (or better) than the first? How are the effects and action scenes? Is it entertaining at least? If you've seen it, leave a comment below with your thoughts on Transformers 3!
Autobots, roll out! I just returned from seeing Transformers: Dark of the Moon for a second time, and I will honestly say that I really, really like this movie - a lot. I think it's hands down the best Transformers movie and one of Michael Bay's better movies. He really has redeemed himself with this. Some of the visuals and effects in this are jaw-dropping/mind-blowing (the entire one-hour final showdown in Chicago), even after Avatar, and seeing that alone was worth it. As for the story, to touch upon that briefly, it was satisfying and I don't feel the need to nitpick. There's a lot going on, it's confusing at times, the comedy is way overplayed, sure it has problems in that area, but for the entertainment it delivers, nothing even comes close this year. Bay has done it, he made the unbelievably awesome Transformers movie I've been waiting to see.
