The Worst “Part 3” Movies Ever Made

The premise of toying with history is tricky to do: Oliver Stone’s JFK (1991) did it well, but focused heavily on historical events and had solid performances from a talented cast. X-Men: First Class (2011) did it with the Cuban Missile crisis and it was … fine. But Transformers, in the hands of a director who pops wood at explosions, Michael Bay, it didn’t work: the Transformers had involvement the Apollo 11 moon landing and … it’s too dumb to type. Bay can’t extract a decent performance from anyone, including John Malkovich or Frances McDormand, leaving his two lead, Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, to drag us along explosion after explosion after explosion.
