Transformers: Age Of Extinction Review

GRADE: F+

RATED: PG-13

WORTH SEEING IN 3D? Only reason

WORTH SEEING IN RPX? If you’re gonna be bored, you might as well be comfortable

Transformers: Age of Extinction (directed by Michael Bay) is a terrible film. The acting was dreadful and not even Mark Wahlberg showed more than two expressions throughout the entire film. The narrative is unfocused at best and the plot disappeared entirely towards the middle. The dialog was seemingly written by a team of ten year olds and was extremely corny. While the effects were good, they got old about 70 minutes into this 165 minute behemoth. While watching it, I could tell when the plot tried to twist on the audience, but it was all dull and predictable. The film takes place 5 years after the events of Dark of the Moon, the Autobots are being hunted by an evil government teamed up with the Decepticons. Cade (Wahlberg) is an inventor that makes zero profit and devotes his life to inventing and his daughter, Tessa (Peltz), one day he stumbles upon Optimus Prime and powers him up once again, they meet up with some new Autobots and Bumblebee to stop the Decepticons. Oh, right, the government was also apparently trying to make Megatron clones that didn’t look like him. The film also makes the mistake of killing off the only decent character 30 minutes in.To follow up on what I said about the dialog I will leave you with this:

Optimus: When you look to the stars, pick one, and think of it as my soul.

  1. Well put Jack…. There hasnt been a more ridiculous series of movies since those failed attempts at the Hulk. I haven’t had the displeasure of watching this latest blight on intelligence yet but I fear my son may make me at some point.
