The running time of 2 hours and 45 minutes allows plenty of time for lots of explosions and inane dialogue.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is as close to an incoherent mess of movement & noise as cinema gets. Michael Bay is slowly perfecting his brand of blockbuster, and to be honest it's getting quite compelling to watch him fall down this rabbit hole

If in doubt, smash everything to pieces - and be as noisy as possible.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is simply more of the same mindless action, flat characters, and utter boredom that we've come to expect from these bloated mechanical sequels.

" excruciatingly monotonous plunge through the id of our cultural subconscious, which means that it might even be a decent allegory in spite of itself."

Transformers have souls, this movie repeatedly tells us, but does Michael Bay?

Like the generic, Hans Zimmer xerox-style score by Steve Jablonsky, and the lightweight, edgeless and comically earnest indie-pop soundtrack songs by Imagine Dragons, 'Age Of Extinction' is oddly anonymous and impersonal.

From its stereotypes and endlessly quipping tinpot has-been-bro-heroes to its brazen product placement, pandering to the Chinese market, and incessant bombast, this flick's the nadir of 21st-century F/X blockbusters--no weight or wonder, just clanking off

...if you're looking for the film that makes the Transformers the real main characters and gives them the best part of the story and the best, most resonant arcs, then Age of Extinction is your ticket.

I'm not going to say that Transformers: Age of Extinction is quite "good." But it is arguably the least "bad" of the franchise.

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.

The Transformers series returns with what just might be the worst entry yet...

It's worse than any of the previous three movies in the franchise and the worst, so far, of this year's parade of would-be 'blockbusters.'

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.

Transformers: A Era da Extinção é o que Círculo de Fogo teria sido caso houvesse sido dirigido por alguém com o Q.I. do garotinho tocador de banjo de Amargo Pesadelo.

Even the diehard Transformers fans will be hard pressed not to admit that this movie stinks.

Seemingly written by a thirteen-year old boy and directed by his walking erection, this one is nothing but a booming pile of rubble.

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

With each film in the Transformer saga, Michael Bay makes it clear that all he's interested in are massive metallic special effects bashing into each other and usually exploding.
