The greatest trick Michael Bay ever pulled was making his last Transformers movie so godawful that virtually any follow-up would look superlative by comparison. Mission not accomplished. Once again the Decepticons and their allies threaten mankind while political leaders opt for appeasement in hopes that the enemy will just leave them alone. Dark of the Moon shamelessly assimilates the vernacular and imagery of Sept. 11 (Chi-town is "Ground Zero"), but Bay's flag-waving would be fine if his film were any good. Instead, its an orgy of dizzying, interminable special effects and right-wing allegory. John Malkovich, John Turturro, Frances McDormand, Patrick Dempsey and former Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley comprise the pointless window-dressing for this loud, jingoistic metaphor for neo-con U.S. geopolitics.
