***THIS REVIEW WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED HERE FOR THE HOLLYWOOD NEWS ON MAY 15TH, 2013***
Director: Justin Lin.
Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Sung Kang, Tyrese Gibson, Luke Evans, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Gal Gadot, Gina Carano, Jordana Brewster, Elsa Pataky.
Running Time: 130 minutes.
Synopsis: Former soldier Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) and his team are being hunted by Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) for their vehicular warfare crimes. Knowing the only way to outwit them is by playing them at their own game, Hobbs enlists Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and crew to outmatch them in London, while a personal connection makes things harder for Dom.
Dubstep. Short skirts. Dodgy one-liners. It’s safe to say that FAST & FURIOUS 6 knows what its audience expects. Opening with a self-gratifying montage that’s as laughable as it is helpful, the franchise’s confidence is as loud as its revving engines. Reacquainted with bromantic bezzies Dom and Brian racing through the Spanish mountains to the birth of a new addition to the Swiss Family Petroleum, the modern-day A-TEAM are spread over the globe after their mega lucrative Rio heist. Competition may be temporarily out of the water, but the promise of full pardons from sometimes friend, sometimes foe Luke Hobbs is too good for the crew to resist. Continue reading

SYNOPSIS: Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf) is living an easier existence with a steady girlfriend (Huntington-Whiteley) and no Decepticon disruptions. But when a colleague (Jeong) at his new job tells him about the secrets of the Moon Landing to coverup a Cybertronian spacecraft, Sam finds himself in the middle of a race between his Autobot friends and Decepticon enemies to reach it first.
Oh Michael Bay, where do I even begin..
Transformers: Dark of the Moon does exactly what you’d expect. It gives you Shia LaBeouf accompanied by another ridiculously beautiful girlfriend on another crazy adventure with best mate Bumblebee and friends. If you’re looking for mindless action, hot girls and shiny metalwork then you already know this film’s for you. If you’re looking for more, you won’t find it here. Summer blockbuster it is, in-depth and philosophical it ain’t. But hey, why break with tradition. Continue reading
