“This Blu-ray 3D of Dark of the Moon will blow you away.  If you’ve been waiting for the right time to get a 3D television, this is it,” said director Michael Bay.  “For fans who’ve been waiting patiently to bring Dark of the Moon home, this Ultimate Edition release delivers the goods.”

Synopsis
A mysterious event from Earth’s past threatens to ignite a war so big that the TRANSFORMERS alone will not be able to save the planet. Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and the AUTOBOTS must fight against the darkness to defend our world from the DECEPTICONS’ all-consuming evil in the smash hit from director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg.

Our Review:  
We have watched all of the Tranformers movies. My husband played with Transformers when he was a little boy and as adults we actually enjoyed watching these movies a lot. These movies are entertaining and action packed as well. In "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," Autobots battled Decepticons in order to protect earth from a take over. In the beginning of the movie, you found Shia LaBeouf somewhat lost and uncertain of his future --the government no longer requiring his assistance to protect earth especially since they are working directly with Autobots. However, through a series of events, autobots were rejected by the US government and later would returned to rescue earth from Decepticons. The 4 Disc set I received to review included Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy. With over 3 hours of bonus contents, this is a set for a Tranformers fan. I am a huge fan of digital copies because I love being able to download the film onto my iPad so that I am able to keep my kids entertained while we are on the road; and this is definitively a movie that does just that!
