Kathryn Schroeder of FilmFracture writes: "If there were ever a time when Michael Bay would make an epic film this just may be it, with Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The film is BIG, on all accounts. Big on story, big on effects, on action, and big on character. While referring to the film as an epic may seem like quite a stretch, this is Michael Bay after all--the director everyone seems to love to hate--he has mastered the fine craft of delivering movies on a large scale, and thus of epic proportions. This third installment in the Transformers franchise does not skimp on any element one might expect from this "type" of film, or a Bay film to be exact, but it is not the all around heart pumping popcorn flick extravaganza a viewer is hoping desperately for either."
