“Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” now on DVD
Rated: PG-13 (for intense prolonged sequences of sci-fi action violence, mayhem and destruction, and for language, some sexuality and innuendo)
Length: 157 minutes
Synopsis: The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and to learn its secrets.
Violence/scary rating: 4.5
Sexual-content rating: 3
Profanity rating: 2.5
Drugs/alcohol rating: 2
Family Time rating: 3.5. The movie is full of intense fighting (as could be expected), but outside that, it’s not too bad for teens.
(Ratings are judged on a five-point scale, with 5 being “bad for kids” and 1 being “fine for kids.”)
