    I'm certainly not bashing Age of Extinction, but it is hard to ignore its obvious downfalls. I have been a fan of the three previous movies for three reasons: 1) they are visually impressive, 2) they are fast-paced, and 3) they are often humorous. Age of Extinction does a fine job in each of these categories. That being said, it struggles in literally every other category. I must admit that I was pleased to hear Mark Wahlberg would replace Shia Labeouf. Don't get me wrong, I thought Labeouf did an excellent job in the first three movies, but I was ready for a change. Though Wahlberg is a fantastic performer, his character can only be as good as his script. Unfortunately, the character scripts are not one of the strong points of Age of Extinction. Cheesy dialog is persistent throughout the movie. The quality of the script and story often go hand-in-hand. Which is certainly the case in this film. Okay, so none of the Transformers movies have impressive story lines, but Age of Extinction is noticeably worse than its predecessors. It seems like they have run out of ideas. No matter how many Decepticons the Autobots kill, they always regenerate in significant numbers. It will be interesting to see how Michael Bay approaches the next two films. For Michael Bay, a smoking hot actress is a necessity in every Transformers movie. In this case it is Nicola Peltz. Though attractive, she is depicted as a 17-year-old girl. I realize that she isn't actually 17, but I still found it a little weird. Apart from that factor, her acting is okay. I personally thought her performance in Bates Motel was much better. But again, this is partially due to the poor writing. As I mentioned, the flaws are obvious and shouldn't be surprising if you've seen the previous three movies. The quality of the CGI should not surprise you either. I have always been amazed by the complexity of the Transformers, and Age of Extinction certainly displays this in all of its magnificence. Some may disagree, but I find the CGI in Transformers more impressive than that of Avatar. Every single action scene is filled with great cinematography, impressive explosions, awing destruction, and extreme complexity. You will certainly be impressed. If you are looking for a visually spectacular action-packed movie, Age of Extinction is one to seriously consider. Just keep in mind that it is not likely to exceed your expectations in all areas.

    I love all the transformers movies, just because they're entertaining. I know they're not critically acclaimed for the acting or the heart-wrenching story like say a Terms of Endearment, but they're not supposed to be. They're action, they're visually spectacular, and very fun! It's escapism at it's best. Watching these movies with a nice surround system is a must. The explosions, the sounds of the transforming, all of it is a much better experience with surround and a good subwoofer! I can do without 2 things in the movies...the eye candy that is the chicks in short shorts! To me, it just doesn't add to the movie. I guess because I'm not a adolescent teenage boy. Secondly, is the language. it seems like all sequels, things are pushed further each time another one is made. There was more profanity in this one than the others. It too doesn't add to the movie. My 4 year old son loves Transformers, too and I don't want him picking up the language. I know one day he will be exposed to it, but c'mon! These movies are enjoyed by all age groups, Michael Bay, please tone down those 2 things and all will be well. Mark Wahlberg did a good job in the movie... I like his movies anyway. I didn't miss Shia LaBeouf or any of the other actors from the previous ones. Also, this one had more work done on the video side. The greens were way greener. My wife noticed that almost everyone had colored eyes, and over exaggerated at that. I didn't mind all that, but it did seem a little weird. I loved the robots! All of them were too cool...Lockdown is a bad dude! His walk, his whole demeanor...I found myself liking him. Those Dinobots were massive! I can't wait to watch it again...and for the next one, which is probably already in the works.

    The 4th movie in the Transformers Movie franchise delivers in the ways you would expect. There is plenty of action and the creators give constant nods to Transformers Lore like the Dinobots, Galvatron, etc... I don't mind that they change the way these things are re-introduced. I know the old story, so a fresh take is fine by me. My problem with his movie is that it drags on forever. There were so many scenes that I felt had no reason to be there or were relevant to the story. I think the movie has 5+ acts, and they don't flow together that well. My other complaint, and has been since Transformer 2, is that they completely get Optimus wrong. He wakes up this time and yells something like; "I will kill all of you!". That seems out of character for the benevolent leader of the Autobots who is righteous to a fault in the old series. In the first movie he was willing to sacrifice himself to save Megatron from himself while also taking care of Megatron's plans to use the cube for evil. He would rather die than kill his enemy and he will stop his enemy's plans no matter the cost. We now see him executing Deceptions without mercy. Playing judge, jury and frankly a murderer. He even talks about taking out humans now in this 4th flick, as I guess he is so bitter he just doesn't care anymore who gets hurt in his quest to make things right. I suppose he is at his wits end. Maybe Optimus' fall into such a dark persona is a statement of the times. Even the most noble can be beaten down and loose their faith today. I find it hard to even just eat my popcorn and enjoy this movie. I own it now, on Blu-Ray and even the 3D set, and will continue to buy them, see them, and be a fan. Optimus Prime is a modern Fallen Angel. Maybe he was "The Fallen" getting revenge in the 2nd movie... He did die in it (for a little while).

    It’s been years since the Decepticons and the Autobots battled for the fate of the humans in Chicago and human defenses against alien forces are at an all-time high. A government branch of humans is targeting all Transformers, Autobots and Decepticons alike, with the help of a menacing assassin. While all of this is going on, Cade Yeager, a struggling inventor from Texas tries to make enough means to keep his property and put his daughter Tessa through college. While looking for parts to help his inventions, he stumbles upon a broken down, rusted truck and decides to fix it up. To his surprise, the truck turns out to the mighty Optimus Prime. Cade fixes him and decides to help him defeat the forces coming for Earth yet, again once he realizes what the government is doing to Transformers. Now, the fate of the entire human race lies in the hands of Optimus and this family of humans and, without them, we might just face extinction. This review is not about the steelbook but the movie itself. The film is very entertaining and visually very well done. The director used an IMAX Digital Camera which means the images are more immersive and stunning than anything ever seen on the big screen so far. With this latest sequel we have a bounty hunter who is killing other transformers, Kelsey Grammer as a cruel & devious government agent and a new Decepticon. In addition to a new storyline the movie has a whole new cast so instead of Shia LeBeouf this movie stars Mark Whalberg. If you haven’t seen a Transformers film this movie is not for you with a running time of 165 minutes this movie is about Autobots fighting humans and then Autobots fighting Decepticons. So if you want to see robots beat up other robots then see this movie if not then watch something else.

    As a long time transformers fan (since I was 10 years old), I purchased this movie for 2 reasons. One, I knew the dinobots were going to be in it. And two, I was hoping that Michael Bay might have possibly learned his lesson; after how insultingly bad the last 2 Transformers movies were. But here we just get more of the same, except well...a lot more of it. A certain iconic autobot now acts like a borderline crazy person, the human characters are like copy and paste re skins of characters from the past movies (despite being played by different actors/actresses), and the human bad guys are once again, evil just for the sake of being evil; with no real motive, rhyme, or reason for being bad or acting the way they do (other than an attempt to ad more layers to an already predictable plot). They should just leave the bad guy parts to the deceptions, because the evil humans in this movie and the previous film, "Dark of the Moon," just feel forced. This is just another cash grab movie by Michael Bay, loaded with action sequences, robot on robot combat, explosions, and people constantly attempting to run out of harms way (oftentimes from said explosions). If you're a hardcore transformers fan that has to see every transformers movie that comes out, then you already know what to expect here (it's a little lengthier this time around though). Or if you are a fan of action movies, have low expectations, and aren't worried about depth and/or human (and robot) drama done right; then perhaps it's worth a look. I for one, watched this movie one time, and have little desire to watch it again or view the plethora of bonuses and extras included in this blu ray release.

    Transformers: Age of Extinction does a good job at continuing on from the last movie. Although the story line jumps from Sam(Shia LaBeouf) to Cade(Mark Wahlberg). This is a good addition to the Transformers series. I liked how there where new characters. I liked this movies but I feel like it is very similar to all the other Transformer movies. There are a lot of explosions and scenes where the sun blinds you just like all the other movies. There is always a reason for the Autobots to stop trusting the humans and then they always owe their lives to someone so they stick around and fight. This movie goes on for a long time with a few spots where you think you have reached the end and then more happens. Also I don't like that the humans always seem to kill more Decepticons than the Autobots do. Overall I gave Transformers, Age of Extinction three stars because I liked the movie. The action is intense, and I liked Mark Wahlberg as the main character.

    Okay, so I know a lot of people love to make fun of this franchise mainly because of Michael Bay. I always enjoyed the first one, disliked the 2nd, and found the 3rd one to be amazing and it even found a way to make Shia seems to be a decent character finally! However after the epic battle in 3, I wondered how they could ever top themselves. Apparently Michael Bay thought the same thing and took a whole new approach here. For starters, there is only a small ragtag group of autobots left this time and they are bitter at the humans. It made the battles less epic in scope but more squad-based tactical which made it much easier to care about each character. The other big change is there's ni Shia, instead we are upgraded to Mark Walberg's presence along with his wild child daughter. The father daughter story is good though it is very similar to the relationship of the father daughter duo in another Bay classic Armageddon so take that for whatever that means. The big battle at the end while not Transformers 3 scale is quite good. The origin story for Galvatron is way off from the original animated movie/series but the premise except for who he used to be. He also looks nothing like he did in the old toy and cartoon but he's still cool! The ending sets the foundation for an awesome set of sequels that likely can introduce more of the cool characters from the animated movie (Unicron and the Quintessons perhaps?). The future looks bright for this franchise!

    OK - Let's get the preliminary stuff out of the way. I grew up watching & buying Transformers/Go-Bots. I was a happy camper. Then when the movies started coming out - I really looked forward to them, knowing the technology was here to do them justice. One thing I overlooked was: how much fighting would take up time-wise in each movie? The percentage grew, which meant plot & storytelling would have to take a back seat more & more. This is the 4th Transformers movie. The logo changed since the Shia days to somehow differentiate THOSE movies from this (and maybe more). Plot became simple and to the point, told in mere moments as the movie unfolded. Fight scenes were just endless. Endless... I realized, there is no more story. All plot lines were only excuses to one end: MORE/LONGER FIGHT SCENES. Honestly, am I sorry I bought this? Yes. I watched it in the theaters and - primarily because I owned the other three - I purchased this (visually) beautifully presentation of a REAL bad movie. I like the actors, not some of the characters (Hate the secret boyfriend - Dad should have shot him and put him under some wreckage. Daughter needed a butt-kicking real bad, as well.) Truth: I bought this the day it came out & I have yet to watch it. It's nowhere near the top of my list to do so. Save your money. Watch one of the previous releases (if pretty much you only love the fight scenes) and pretend it's the new one. Chances are, you won't be able to tell the difference.

    Not the best of the movies.. Clearly seems they were going in a different direction with the storyline on this one. They tried waay to hard to sell this movie by casting Mark Wahlberg. Don't get me wrong.. Mark is an excellent actor in his own right but just seems so out-of-place in this movie it's almost humorous. It's like having "Ahnuld" do a commercial for a Mini Cooper while harping on how "roomy" it is.. And trying to sell that he is the father of Nicola Peltz, is laughable at best.. This naturally is what happens when you are unprepared for something to get this big and inevitably find yourself scrambling to piece together a massive series into a few movies. You end up with a monotonous gap between the beginning and end of the series, where the producer and director are struggling to piece everything together.. Picture a horse dragging it's rider behind, by the reigns and you get the idea of the direction this series is taking, lol.. So with any expectations of an academy award-winning plot and storyline to the side, we address the movie for what it is: Eye Candy :) So as long as you're not expecting an engaging plot or storyline you shouldn't be dissspointed. But forgo the steel book unless you just have to collect every steel book out there. Audio is excellent. Video is excellent. Overall impression of Steel book: Nice cover and that's about it!

    This is a good movie, but in reality the writing and acting has gone down hill after Megan Fox left the series. The 3D is a great bonus but the iTunes digital copy is by far the best part of the deal. It comes with ultraviolet/vudu as well, but I have found that to be a far inferior product with inconsistent loading in all my various ultraviolet accounts - what a hassle. I can also say that I am furious that the movie companies are deleting scenes from movies just so they can have deleted scenes. The third movie was missing so many scenes that I saw in the theatre. The 3D version of that movie didn't have deleted scenes included however my friends 2D version did and 90% of the deleted scenes were in the movie at the theater. I am finding that you have to get the directors cut now if you want to actually have the movie as you saw it in the theatre which is just ridiculous. Come on movie companies, at least give your customers the option to choose how they want their digital copy. If you want to combat the piracy issues then give every movie sold a digital copy. And give it to the customers in the 'format' the customer wants to use for them - iTunes, Google, Amazon, even UV if you for some reason like that format.

    Let me preface this by saying that I have thought that EVERY one of the Transformers has been utter garbage. At least the first one is good home theater demo material, (great picture and sound). The second one was even dumber than the first. I don't even remember the 3rd one. I didn't bother to see this movie in the theaters because I knew it would be more Michael Bay tripe. All of his movies are pure fluff. No character development. No semblance of a decent plot. Bay knows that as long as he blows enough stuff up people will like his movies. I don't get it. Why do people keep going to see his movies? I bought this one because even though I knew I would hate it, I thought that it would be another good demo disc. Well I won't be using this as even demo material because the movie was so stupid that I can't stand to put it in my Blu-ray player again. Sure the movie may look and sound great but I'm never watching it again. Maybe I'll sell it on Craigslist for like $10. The movie is beyond stupid. The comedy in it is for 8 year olds. The plot is ridiculous and makes even less sense than the previous ones. Please America stop falling for Michael Bay's garbage so that he can't make any more movies!!!!

    As many other fans of the series, I entered this movie with a healthy level of skepticism. After my disappointment with Dark of the Moon, which I almost walked out if the theater on, I was all but certain that this movie would also let me down. But to my surprise I found myself encapsulated and drawn into not only the storyline, but also all og the stunning effects and explosions that are accustomed to Michael Bay movies. Now granted he will never be known as a great oscar winning director who is known for great writing and impeccable storytelling, far from I t. But if you go into this movie with the understanding that it's nothing more than than a Michael Bay movie, you will be pleasantly surprised. The one thing I thoroughly enjoyed was the fact that he cut down dramatically the cheesy jokes that seemed forced down our throats during the first 3 movies. And the acting by Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci are a welcomed change from the drab and dreary and mostly annoying interactions from Shia Lebeauf. While the movie is almost 3 hours long, it does not drag at a slow pace like Dark of the Moon and the Fallen seemed too. This movie actually left me looking forward to the next film, something I hadn't felt since leaving the theater after the first one. Definitely worth watching!

    Michael Bay is back with his ballistical, bombastic and booming bangs for your bucks. The film maintains the same look and feel of his previous films, yet, has a (slightly) new direction in story. Gone is LaBeouf and here to (seemingly) stay is Marky-Mark. Mark Wahlberg plays a poor, but brilliant inventor from one the most gorgeous and acreage farms in the state of Texas. (I happen to live in Texas and that land and his farm would easily be worth millions. These are typical beautiful shots made by and for Michael Bay to blow up in a visual menagerie of utter glory. As cheesy as the story may be the visuals and audio is incredible in this film - ESPECIALLY, in 3D. If you have a 3D tv and a home theater audio system I HIGHLY recommend this film. It's gorgeous and the sound will blast you into the back of your couch. This is a paint-by-numbers fun popcorn-flick, but it paints in vivid glorious colors. Your not getting a film that will make you think or blow your mind, but you are getting a simple and fun film. Period. So, cook some popcorn, dim the lights, turn the volume up, put on your glasses and let yourself enjoy the ride. :)

    I really didn't feel they needed to do a fourth movie, especially since it really didn't bring anything new to the franchise! The first (3) movies covered everything that need to be covered. The special effects were 'many' in this movie but not enough storyline nor did they attempt to include more autobots & decepticons. The small number of autobots & decepticons (especially ones that are NOT the recognizable one from the cartoon) are (were) not acceptable! They could have done more with the dinobots... but they didn't! This movie just leads me to believe it was produced for the 'money' not to further along the franchise (for the true fans). Don't get me wrong. Making money is the end goal for making this types of movies but it could have been done differently! Take a look at the current Marvel movies "Iron man, Capt America, Thor, Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc). These movies will continue to grow a fan base (old fans and new fans) because of the writing, directing, production and what they bring to the screen! The lesson here for this Transformers franchise (at this point, not the first 3 movies)... "Money could still (and continued to) be made with a quality product"! Look what happened to the "Fantastic Four" Movies?

    First let's stop with all the Bay hating. Yes the Transformers movie's don't have strong plots or story's but what dumb a** goes to a movie about "ALIEN ROBOT'S THAT TRANSFORM INTO VEHICLES" for the plot or story line. Come on people these are movie's created from an 80's Japanese toy line with a back story of being robot alien's stranded on earth that's it nothing else period. With that being said I think all the Transformers movie's are awesome for action movies (*Revenge of the Fallen did kinda suck I must say) but Age of extinction was a fun action packed popcorn movie that can be enjoyed by open minded adults and definitely children. I liked the movie and I think most people forget these movies are really attended for kids just because we grew up on the cartoons & play with the toys we hope for better story's & plots from the movie when there was never one to begin with. So I'll just say that Transformers Age of extinction was awesome let's stop being so critical of every little thing especially when it comes to action movies. (PS. If these movies came out in the 80's & 90's most people would love them and they would be considered the most visually stunning movie's since Star Wars or Jurassic Park.)

    Cool Art Cover & A Fun Movie To Watch

    I know many do not like the way Michael Bay has directed nor have liked the writers storylines for most of this series, but for those who have found the entertainment in metal-against-metal giant bashing's, explosive scenes, and over-the-top destructive city battles ...then this 4th installment of Transformers is a fun choice & a more family-friendly version in comparison to it's previous highly sexualized dramedies (though some is still evident in AGE OF EXTINCTION). This Best Buy Exclusive has a cool art cover & would make a nice addition to your existing Transformers movie collection. ...but be foreWARNED: if you're picky about the condition in which you receive your copy of this edition, then personally pick it up in-store. The metal casing can get dinged through the mailing process and handling, as did mine (no punctures, but enough to notice and feel a bit disappointed if you're looking to obtain a pristine condition edition). It is unfortunate that Best Buy does not mail it to you in a more protective mailing pack. Mine came in nothing more than a poly mailing bag (that's right, no buffer ...no bubble-wrap lining to protect the item).

    Plan and simple this is another of a good movie to get your Transformers fill. Its been 30yrs since the Transformers were brought to the small screen and this 36 yr old still loves the heroic Autobots led by Optimus Prime and the evil Decepticons led by Galvatron the reincarnated Megatron who got a inventor to create him a new body and new army not knowing til its too late somethings aren't meant to create. It leads to a massive battle that the Autobots again heavily outnumbered "need a new army" and Optimus gets it by the gigantic and might Dinobots led by the classic Grimlock. If your a huge fan or not I would say its a great buy to watch and add to your collection. You will get into the film despite the plot points not being on point always but its the battle of good vs evil that always gets me. I know most of you will like this film.

    The movie itself is quite good. It runs a bit long and can be rather monotonous at points, but it easily puts up a fight with the first movie in terms of quality. I like Mark Wahlberg, but he seems somewhat out of place in this one. A movie like this just isn't his gig. More than anything though, the climactic scene makes the movie. Very large and explosive with a great new element for the films. Now onto the steelbook. Largely, this is the only reason I actually bought the movie. It's not the highest quality steelbook I've seen, but it looks quite good. Unfortunately, the inside image is just of a metallic texture. The biggest problem I have with it is that I looked through every single case in the entire store and not a single one was without damage. This is why I say the quality of the case is poor. All cases have manufacturing damage (not shipping damage) on either the spine and/or the bottom right front of the case. Very disappointing to go to the checkout knowing that I'm purchasing an imperfect steelbook because I have no other option. Decent movie with a steelbook that has something more to be desired.

    I would recommend this to a friend
