The few authentic inspirations to be found in the movie's hundred and sixty-five roiling minutes involve gigantic science-fiction contrivances.

It barely matters whether this movie is good or bad. Bay is now the sort of filmmaker -- the only one, perhaps -- whose moviemaking goes beyond such binary banality.

In the end, though, this is still a movie about giant robots fighting each other, which is to say it's nearly impossible to take seriously on a narrative level.

Transformers: Age of Extinction isn't so much a movie as it is a 165-minute propaganda film made to appeal to the widest demographic possible - but mainly for China.

It is frankly pointless to knock its quintessentially Bay aesthetic of massive mayhem and the equally shameless broad corniness of its humor, for all of that is clearly what the film was meant to be and dutifully delivers.

The film's special effects are amazing, it's loud and overwhelming, but there are so many unnecessary scenes, so little narrative, such a weak script, so much product placement, a favouring of the Chinese government that it feels almost nihilistic...

Audience Reviews for Transformers: Age of Extinction

Michael Bay definitely need to know when he should stop making garbage movie and back on the right track by making a movie such as 'Bad Boys' or 'Armageddon' that not only awesome but people still talk about them until now.. The most fatal thing that I cannot tolerate is how Michael turns the whole movie into a commercial by turning all the robots into Chevrolet, make a promo for Beats, and gave some spot for fashion commercial such as Victoria's Secret, Armani, or Tom Ford to make a short appearance.. I mean what the hell is he thinking? Not only the movie itself kinda flat because of the nonstop battle between robots, but how weak the main story is.. This time, I definitely think Bay should stop..

This is not war, it's extinction.

Good Action Movie! Age of Extinction probably has the worst plot of all the transformers. It's like they didn't even try to develop a story line. It's over 2 1/2 hours of explosions and CGI with cool but uninteresting characters. I feel like they could have done a much better job if they developed the characters more and had better dialogue as the characters had potential. If you are a child this movie is perfect. 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.

After the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leveled Chicago, humanity thinks that all alien robots are a threat. So Harold Attinger, a CIA agent, establishes a unit whose sole purpose is to hunt down all of them. But it turns out that they are aided by another alien robot who is searching for Optimus Prime. Cade Yeager, a "robotics expert", buys an old truck and upon examining it, he thinks it's a Transformer. When he powers it up, he discovers it's Optimus. Later, men from the unit show up looking for Optimus. He helps Yeager and his daughter escape but are pursued by the hunter. They escape and Yeager learns from technology he took from the men that a technology magnate and defense contractor named Joshua Joyce is part of what's going on, so they go to find out what's going on.
