Transformers: Age of Extinction Review

Well, this poster says it all..  WTF is Optimus Prime doing riding Grimlock???  Are you friggin kidding me?  But of course, I have to see it…  Right?

Look, for me, when I see the name Michael Bay, I expect only one thing.  BOOM!  And that’s what I got.  It was definitely fun to watch and who doesn’t like to hear Optimus speaking.  I am also a huge fan of Mark Wahlberg, so that didn’t hurt the movie either.

Other than that, you have an ok written script with BIG robots and BIG BOOMS.

Overall, the script/movie has flaws, but what it lacks in depth, it makes up for it with the cinematography.  It is quite a beautiful piece of art to watch.  I just wish it had more…  A better script…

Two pieces of advice: 1-Go in with VERY LOW expectations.  By doing this, you can’t be extremely disappointed.  And 2-Wait for the DVD.  Don’t spend that much money. Nowadays, most people have a nice television, so it’s not really necessary to spend $13, plus another $15 to sit in a dirty seat and blow your eardrums out…

Good luck…
