Audience Reviews for Transformers: Age of Extinction

  • Dec 16, 2018
    Well, its not the worst of this franchise but it is the laziest. Bay is obviously so bored with this material, pretty much maxing out all he was capable of in "Dark of the Moon", and yet he somehow still trudges on for 2 hours and 45 minutes here. The editing is atrocious and Bay's sense of spacial awareness is even worse than usual. There is one good sequence, an escape from an alien bounty hunter's spaceship but it occupies such a small piece of the movie's running time that you've almost completely forgotten it by the end.

    Infuriatingly silly and pointless, this is the most spectacular and stupid entry in the franchise. No plot to speak of and unbelievably flat characters and dialog make this hard to sit through, even during some of the action sequences. It doesn't help that the film is 30 minutes too long. When even huge action sequences feel repetitive and drag on forever your movie is in trouble. Most attempts in humor, especially on the Bots's side, are just poor. Only Stanley Tucci works here once his character gets interesting. He is the sole ray of light in this convoluted, stupid mess. One of the worst blockbusters of all times.

    It felt like I was sitting in a theater just hoping when this would be over.

    In what can only be described as a parody of the series, Transformers: Age of Extinction offers a searing indictment against needless sequels. Loud, utterly pointless, breath-taking in its stupidity, and flatly acted, it's a film that should otherwise not exist. But it does, and director Michael Bay tries earnestly to out due his special affects antics, resulting in a film of visual spectacle but nothing else. The film's plot achieves two aims. For one, it creates a new villain for which grandiose asinine action sequences can be had, and it sets up the franchise for yet more films, literally starting at square one. In this case, we find the allegiances of the US Government turning against the autobots, ostensibly striking a deal with alien bounty hunters to destroy them. None of it makes any particular sense, and the stakes are the most contrived as possible. In the end, you are left to not only wonder what the point of that was, but are amazed with how uninspired the series is. It literally refuses to propel the narrative. Formula, it seems, involves recycling the same storyline, but interchanging its main actors. The dialogue is atrocious, literally full of one-liners, obviously stalling or giving dumb-down exposition to set up the next action sequence. The actors are equally as flat, with Mark Whalberg having zero dramatic presences, and the other actors clearly phoning it in, not that we would really notice otherwise with so little character development (actually...none). What good can be said of it? Visually, Michael Bay keeps things interesting. His adrenaline fast pace almost distracts us from the bad story, and keeps your eyes on the screen. Which, apparently, is all that is needed for this franchise. 1.5/5 Stars
