Transformers: Age of Extinction Reviews

March 27, 2017
A lumbering film of grotesque size in which nothing of major interest happens.
Full Review | Original Score: Not Recommended

There's not much here to entice non-fans, and there's probably too much static to please the purists.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

In 1871, the Great Chicago Fire burned miles of the city, but it would be nearly destroyed by something much worse, 140 years later.

Mad, funny junk.

Since the film is a chilling two hours and 45 minutes long, that means one's mind quickly wanders, dancing across this film's many flaws, little and big.

On the one hand, Transformers: Age of Extinction is barely coherent, narratively disastrous, and oppressively long. On the other: Optimus Prime riding a dinosaur robot!
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The elements of a Transformer movie: cool machinery, a long-legged jail-bait female of stunning visage, cornfields/sunsets; witty dialog: 'Dude, she's an evil jock-concubine.'
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

As the series' least terrible entry to date, "Age Of Extinction" is all at once refreshing and generally pointless.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 3, 2015
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
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Metal on metal still the name of the game

If in doubt, smash everything to pieces - and be as noisy as possible.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 29, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 28, 2014
"...an excruciatingly monotonous plunge through the id of our cultural subconscious, which means that it might even be a decent allegory in spite of itself."
September 4, 2014
Transformers have souls, this movie repeatedly tells us, but does Michael Bay?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 24, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: D
August 6, 2014
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
August 1, 2014
...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.
August 1, 2014
I'm not going to say that Transformers: Age of Extinction is quite "good." But it is arguably the least "bad" of the franchise.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.0/10

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.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4
