Transformers Thoughts

This isn't a review. I really don't care to even take the time to review TRANSFORMERS (Michael Bay, 2007). It didn't do a lot for me. Mostly, it left me confused. Not in that PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 3 head-scratching way, but in that "Confus-O-Vision" way that too many action movies are filmed in lately.

Moreover, the logic of the film eluded me at times with the biggest gap coming before the third act when a group of military guys decide to take the movie's MacGuffin from a relatively isolated area to a metropolis; a place with lots of buildings to damage and civilians to injure or kill. That's what they call military intelligence and the need for spectacle.
