If you liked the first two, you'll probably like this, it's not quite as awesome as the first one, but a bit better than the second, I think.
It was standard explosions and slow motion robots. There were a couple times I laughed so hard I cried a little, once at something John Malkovich did and another time at something rather absurd and ridiculous.
Acting wise it was alright, and there were a couple of minor twists I wasn't expecting, some scenes ran on a little long, but it was okay. I saw it in 3D and I'm glad I didn't pay for it because I don't feel that the 3D effects were that mind-blowing or wow-ing.
