Every time a new Transformers movie comes out I always try to think positive and hope that Michael Bay didn't screw it all up. Now I have nothing against Michael Bay, sure he's made a lot of crappy movies, but I do think he has the potential to make a good movie. Now the fourth Transformers movie would be a great start for him and if he actually put some effort into the movie and made the movie about the actual Transformers, then he might be on the road to a good career. However, this is Michael Bay and this is the guy that made movies, like Bad Boys, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, The Island, Pain & Gain and the three previous Transformers movies, so I don't think he's going to change. His new movie Transformers: Age of Extinction is the fourth installment to the Transformers movie franchise, not including the 1986 Transformers animated film. Anyways this movie takes place years after the third film and basically most of the Transformers have been wiped out by the humans, until a poor farmer finds an old truck who turns out to be Optimus Prime. The government then finds out about this and starts hunting down Optimus Prime as well the farmer, his daughter and the daughter's boyfriend. The movie also goes into a huge battle between the Autobots and the humans and the Autobots and Lockdown, who's a Transformer that works with the humans. So this movie has lots of guns, explosions, running, slow motion and shaky cam, basically everything in a typical Michael Bay movie. Now was this Transformers movie good? No, not in the slightest bit! Was it the worst Transformers movie? Almost! You see the first Transformers film was a really bad movie, but at the same time it was kind of fun to watch. The second Transformers film was just a bad movie, it wasn't fun it was just bad. The third Transformers film was pretty much the same movie all over again just without Megan Fox, which was a huge plus, but the writing and direction was so damn bad I couldn't really get into it. Now Transformers: Age of Extinction pretty much does what the third Transformers movie did, it has the same story as the previous two Transformers films and it focuses more on the humans, then the Transformers. I don't think many people will think this Transformers film is the worst, but in my opinion I think it's the worst. Sure, technically the second Transformers movie is a way shittier movie than this one, but this Transformers movie did something the other ones didn't do and that was bore the shit out of me. Seriously this movie was 2 hours and 45 minutes and it felt like 2 hours and 45 minutes. At least in the previous Transformers movies I never got bored, I got pissed off and irritated, but never bored and if you can make a movie that's about a bunch of robots fighting each other boring, then you have failed. Let me break this movie down just so people can understand how terrible this is. First off this movie begins right off with a lame back story about the Dinobots and how Transformers were the ones that caused all the Dinosaurs to die. Now as dumb as that is, I can forgive that, but what I can't forgive is the fact that this movie is all about the humans. Yup, once again Michael Bay makes a movie called the Transformers and the movie isn't even about the Transformers. Now the reason Godzilla had human characters in it, is because Godzilla can't talk, so we need human characters in it to make the story more interesting. You see the Transformers can actually talk and there's more than one Transformer, there's a bunch of them. The story needs to be about the Transformers and only about the Transformers. Yes they brought in Mark Wahlberg instead of Shia LeBeouf again, which is good because Mark Wahlberg is a great actor and to be honest he wasn't half bad in this movie. His character was really generic, but Mark Wahlberg still played the part really well. Now that brings me to the next problem I had with this movie and it's a problem I had with all these Transformers movies, which is if you're going to make a movie filled with human characters make them somewhat interesting. The characters in Transformers: Age of Extinction were horribly written characters, all they did was complain, make bad jokes, get in the way of all the good fights that are happening and of course act like their stereotypical selves. This movie had all the stereotypes, they had the overprotective father, the attractive and dimwitted daughter with no personality, her bad boy boyfriend with no personality, the science genius with bad puns and the over the top villains with bad motivations. So when you dedicate most of the movie to all these clichéd characters at least have some good writing, solid action and a coherent story to go along with it. The action in this movie could've been really good, but again this movie focused on the humans, so when the action stuff was happening the camera was on all the humans while you can see all the Transformers fighting in the background. That right there is just stupid; people came to see Transformers fight each other not see humans run away and occasionally fire their guns at the Transformers. So the action sucked, the script was lame and the story was the same damn story as the previous films, so what else did this movie do to screw it all up? Well from the trailer it seemed like there was going to be some badass Dinobots in the film, which is true, but unfortunately the Dinobots don't come into the movie until the last ten minutes. I enjoyed seeing the Dinobots, but putting them in the movie for only the last ten minutes is just stupid. Also, with the exception of the Dinobots, I thought the Transformers in this movie looked really bad. The CG they used looked pretty cheap looking and I'm not saying they looked good in the previous films, but in this movie they looked kind of awful. Now the other things that bothered me in this movie were the constant expositions and corny dialogue. Seriously the dialogue throughout this film was just horrible, it contained so many unfunny jokes, clichéd speeches and really bad character interactions. The exposition was another lame thing in this film because almost every other scene we had people explaining shit and the shit their explaining is pretty obvious, but this movie treats its audience like their idiots. You don't have to explain everything because throughout the course of the film we'll eventually get what's going on, so all the film should be doing is giving good character development, smart dialogue and fun action scenes, but this film failed to do any of that. Plus this movie is way too long, between its mindless action and boring character interactions they could've cut some of the scenes down a bit. Honestly I can probably keep going on and on about how bad this movie is, but I think I ranted on long enough. So I'll just finish off by saying that Michael Bay once again failed to make a good Transformers movie. I know many people like Michael Bay's Transformers films and that's fine because if you do, then you'll probably enjoy this one, but if you hate his Transformers movies, then you will really hate this one. This movie may have good actors in it, like Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, John Goodman and Ken Watanbe, but that's not enough to make a movie good, plus most of them sucked in this movie anyways. For a summer action film this movie failed and I will not recommend it to anyone.
