Transformers: Age of Extinction Review: The movie isn’t the best movie out there for sure. But it’s the best of all Michael Bay-made Transformers films. I kept my expectations low due to Michael Bay factor, and what I’ve got was more than expected, which made me pleased in the end. Transformers Age of Extinction abandoned the “Bumblebee and his stupid friends” concept and focused entirely on Prime and survival of Autobots, which had been the main projection of the Franchise since G1.
In this case, this is the first Transformers movie that really felt “Transformers oriented”. Even though there still existed the idea of “An unnecessary family and their dumbfuck relations”, Mark Wahlberg made a hell of a good job to have that family factor “endurable” while waiting 2.5 hours just for dinobots to pop up.
Despite the questions popping out of nowhere, the plot is quite entertaining and at most times makes the watcher wonder what will happen next, unlike the first three installations. The visuals are absolutely amazing though.
