There was not one specific part of this movie where I laughed.
Honestly, there was not one funny hit in this movie. The reason because
I saw this movie was because Cameron Diaz is in it. She's sexy,
attractive and charismatic. For me, her reputation has significantly
dropped. I do not know who was the genius that thought Cameron Diaz was
a good actress for the role of Elizabeth Halsey.
Justin Timberlake does it again. OH MY GOD! What an awful choice. Isn't he supposed to be a singer at least? Nope, not that either. Really bad I must say. The only somewhat funny character in the movie is Ms. Squirrel. And the character is also extremely weak.
It is hard to believe that this movie box offices $97,000,000. What's wrong America? By what I've heard from other reviewers, the movie depicts America's society. I guess I just don't understand that type of comedy. But still, the movie is PATHETIC, BAD and PAINFUL.

A huge disappointment.
I just came back from watching it and it just feels PAINFUL to have wasted this much time of my life.
First of all, a super hero is commonly based on his childhood and how it changed him in a way that makes him unique. Batman watches his parents die, Spiderman sees his uncle die, Superman's parents send their son to Earth because their planet is in peril... The stories go on. Green Lantern hangs loosely on his dad's death. During some parts of the movie, Green Lantern is recalled about his dad's death and is somehow used as a lame excuse to call Green Lantern a super hero. I would personally say, Super 'zero'. The story of his dad is not convincing at all as he shows to great affection towards his dad except for the picture he carries in his jet at the beginning of the film. We seldom hear from his dad again.
Secondly, I find it hard to believe that this movie cost around $200,000,000 as the actors seem weak and untrained, the settings look cheap and the script somewhat resembles a horrific parody of Green Lantern. Ryan Reynolds did not convince me about GL's personality. In fact, he lacked all of it. What does GL like? What does he dislike? How is he changed by his environment? WHAT MAKES HIM SPECIAL? WHAT IS HIS WEAKNESS? And many more questions pop up in my mind. Blake Lively... Stay in Gossip Girl please? I really didn't like her for the role of Carol Ferris, as she, like Ryan Reynolds, does not portray the character as it should be. I really don't know how Tim Robbins signed for this film as it bring his whole acting reputation just a tad down. Poor performance from all of the actors, not to mention Peter Sarsgaard... He was not born to be this villain, I'm sorry.
Thirdly, the 3D effects are just blindly bad. I watched 90% of the movie without the glasses because it looked like I was wearing SUNglasses. Some of the scenes were 2D, so no excuse for charging extra. The sound of the movie was 5/10.
Lastly, I really don't know who decided to write the script and who to edit it but they did a really really poor effort. I really can't think of anyone that would be sitting in their seat after watching this film going 'WOW WHAT A MOVIE!' I really can't. The storyline is lousy. It takes the movie 100 minutes to show us who this Hal Jordan guy is, why he has been chosen (not clear as nobody knows his weakness, not even him OR the ring). The editors and the screenplay writers then decide that it should only take 7 minutes to destroy the bad guy and then another 3 to show how the other lanterns care for Hal Jordan. Then 30 seconds to kiss the girl, and OH another 30 seconds for the TOTALLY UNEXPECTED SCENE AFTER THE CREDITS.
Really pathetic excuse for a super hero movie. Warner Bros, please step up your game.

If you are someone who is looking for special effects, loud explosions
and robot wars, then this is the movie for you.
The storyline isn't that good but the special effects compensate for it. The viewer quickly forgets about Sam's life as he struggles to find a job and his girlfriend leaves him. The viewer forgets soon enough why the decepticons are on earth, but in the end, a short recall aids the viewer.
It is certainly an action packed film which is enough for me. Since I was a kid, I remember the Transformer toys and these Transformer movies make it just so much more exciting. The special effects that are employed in the film are excellent. The sound is outstanding as well as it engulfs the viewer in this fictional world where the human race is at peril.
Most people out there enjoy having a film where the human race is in danger of extinction and this one does not come short.
From the beginning to the end of the film I was at the edge of my seat waiting for more and more battles.
Friends of mine thought it was endless as the movie expends over 2 hours in length, and I'm afraid I do have to agree with this.
Other than that, I thought that it was a very well done movie as all the other Transformer ones in the past.
