Transformers Age of Extinction

Transformers Age of Extinction Review



The Movie
Where to begin, where to begin. First of all it should be noted that I went into this movie with low expectations. A lot of the problems that I had with the previous three I had here as well and I want to get those out of the way first. The first part of this movie to me is pretty boring. With the exception of Mark Wahlberg and T.J. Miller the first part of this movie drags. Even the staple black ops team that is usually in every Michael Bay film I found to be lame and uninteresting. The new H.P.A in the film is Nicola Peltz and she looks entirely to young for some of the shots that Bay was using with her. I looked it up online and she's 19 but in the film she looks like she is 16 and her character is completely annoying. Another thing I found to be jarring was the numerous plot holes and the new autobots that tend to show up out of nowhere. They do introduce Galvatron and while I understand why they did it the way they did it, as a fan I just didn't like the way it was handled. Also just like in previous films in this series a good 20 - 30 minutes could have been cut out of the film. My last major complaint is HOW DARE THEY NOT SHOW THE DINOBOTS UNTIL THE LAST 20 MINS OF THE DAMN MOVIE!!! Yes people they do not show up until the end. In all honesty that was what I was looking forward to the most and its at the end with little to no explanation as to where they came from or why they were where they were.

Despite those problems, there were some things I liked about the movie. I have to give it to Bay the man knows how to shoot an action sequence. The best parts of the movie are when the AutoBots are onscreen and the action is going on. Some of the jokes were funny in this one, I wasn't mad at them like I usually am. Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammar do good work in their roles, even if they are a little over the top. I also liked the villain Lockdown, I thought he wasn't that bad. The movie seems to be trying to setup Unicron but I don't exactly know how that will work but oh well.



For Parents
This movie is rated PG-13 but I have to say I don't think that this movie is for little kids. The theater I was in last night had to many little kids in there. The movie has some foul language in it and I just don't think its appropriate for the little ones.



Verdict
With the problems that I have with the movie and the fact that this is the same movie for the most part as the other three. I have to give this a RENTAL. It drags on and is to long in my opinion. At least when you rent it you can fast forward to the good stuff.
