Over half of the film was converted to 3-D by Legend3D. In fact, forty minutes of non-visual effects, and 38 minutes of visual effects shots were converted. This includes much of the robot battling chaos during the final forty minutes of the movie, as well as close-ups and medium shots of actors on 35mm anamorphic film. See more »
Optimus Prime's mouthshield goes from flat to vented during some shots whilst fighting. The flat mouthshield is the most current version, whilst the vented mouthshield was used in the previous two films. Nothing says that his mouthshield needs to stay exactly the same as the previous two films. See more »
We were once a peaceful race of intelligent mechanical beings. But then came the war between the Autobots, who fought for freedom and the Decepticons, who dreamt of tyranny. Overmatched and outnumbered, our defeat was all but certain. But in the wars final days, one Autobot ship escaped the battle. It was carrying a secret cargo, which would have changed our planet's fate. A desperate mission, our final hope...

The camera zooms into Sentinel Prime's head as he lies comatose inside the Ark, and the moving gears and components forms the opening title. See more »
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.
