    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.

    Same old clichéd characters and plot...

    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.

    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!
