Age of Extinction is easily the most relentless and indulgent of the films so far, from a visceral perspective.

The movie is like the play date from hell, the kind where a crew of children reduce your home to rubble and conduct endless bouts of loud war on the living-room floor while you ponder the propriety of opening a bottle of wine.

Eager to get myself into the right mindset for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, I turned to the multiplex patron sitting next to me and politely asked him to slam my head against the forward seatback.

I would like to think that even if I was 14, either in body or spirit, I would still find this film an impossibly, incomprehensibly overlong and cacophonous bore.

If Bay has one consistent artistic inclination other than the lowest common denominator, it's his obsession with fascistic imagery.

Mostly it's punch-your-face loud.

The first Transformers may not have been bigger, but it was certainly better.

Few elements of Fallen are completely odious unto themselves, but rolled together it becomes a wave of inescapable proportions.

Built from the ground up to be a popcorn-devouring, eye-popping, nostalgia-sparking crowd-pleaser.

It adds up exactly as you'd think if you've seen a moving picture before; the motivations are simple while the laughs pound you about the head and face.

The people Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was made for will like it for what it is. Which is probably the saddest thing about it. As long as you're willing to accept crap, you're not likely to get anything better.

Bayformers 2 is a mess of a story loosely glued together with lame jokes, fighting pixels and Megan Fox's ass.

Revenge of the Fallen ... plays more like Pearl Harbor 2, from the heavy-handed seriousness to the clumsy racial stereotypes (a couple of 'ethnic' robots seem to have walked straight out of the Kirk Lazarus School of Racial Sensitivity).

It's frustrating that if Transformers 2 took itself a little more seriously, it might just have blown audiences away the same way the original did.

Michael Bay knows how to spoil any film he touches, taking an extreme step down from the surprisingly fun original.

with Bay under pressure to squeeze as much content into two and half hours, it was inevitable that some elements of the formula wouldn't work

This benighted cacophony is a painful blend of overproduced action and shameless exposition
