If it wasn't for a mess of a third act, Age of Extinction might have been a half-decent movie.
November 13, 2017
Be it fiery photogenic explosions, smashing buildings, mega monster battles and more, there is no doubt that action rules this film.

If you feel that Frozen or Maleficent gave you an overdose of positive female role models, then Tessa's wailing and waiting for her father and boyfriend Shane to prove their masculinity by saving her (Peltz) will be just the antidote you need.

Motivations are reduced to extreme basics such as, "Family Man is brave" and "Black Ops Guy is bad".

If you're looking for retrograde sexual politics, then by all means Transformers is the movie for you.
August 17, 2017
When the third act finally, finally comes and the film becomes fun, it has been a long, dreary road for the audience to get to that point, and it's almost too little, too late.

March 27, 2017
A lumbering film of grotesque size in which nothing of major interest happens.
Full Review | Original Score: Not Recommended
March 19, 2017
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.
February 28, 2017
Mad, funny junk.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 22, 2016
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.
July 14, 2016
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
June 14, 2016
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
April 17, 2016
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.
December 7, 2014
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
October 10, 2014
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."
