The interstellar battle between the Autobots and Decepticons rains destruction down on planet Earth as director Michael Bay adapts Hasbro and Takara's popular Transformers franchise into a big-budget, live-action summer tentpole extravaganza in this ambitious sci-fi action feature starring Shia LaBeouf, Tyrese Gibson, Bernie Mac, John Turturro, Jon Voight, and, of course, Optimus Prime and Megatron. Long ago, on the planet of Cybertron, a massive, powerful alien race divided into two factions, the noble Autobots, and the devious Decepticons. They fought for the sole access to a talisman known as the Allspark, a cube with the capacity to grant infinite power, and eventually the Autobots smuggled it off the planet's surface, hiding it in an unknown location on Earth. Now, hundreds of years later, the Deceptacons have come looking for it, and if the Autobots don't find it first, the Earth will be enslaved or destroyed by the evil aliens' use of its massive power. The Autobots don't know where the cube was hidden, but the information may be stored in the most unlikely of sources, as a gangly young Earthling named Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf) who's just picked up his first car, has a strange connection to the Allspark's history, making him the unlikely ally of these enormous creatures, as they fight for humankind's survival and the chance to return home.~Jason Buchanan

I have to buy the 4K version of this movie because I wanted the special features that were absent from the $10 blu ray version. I am a special features nut when it comes to movies. Most people don't want to know how their favorite movies fearing that it would take them out of the movie. For me, I am the opposite! I love how movies are made. Film school 101.
It's a Transformers movies, so it is what it is. It's silly fun for a popcorn movie, but the picture and sound are top notch at the 4K level. I'm not a fan of 3D movies, so 4K is as good as it gets at the moment.
As a child, I loved this movie and it blew my mind on what we can do in cinema! As I saw that this movie was available in 4K I knew that I had to buy it! Now this movie is not as beautiful as the Last Knight in 4K because this movie has some film grain. However, the HDR looks really good and it definitely looks better the blu-ray version. Now I do not own an OLED tv but this movie still looks mighty fine on my 4k Tv.
