Later, men from the unit show up looking for Optimus. He helps Yeager and his daughter Tessa escape but are pursued by the hunter.

Continues to boil a putrid franchise that is long overdue for extinction.
As published by the Morrisons Cove Herald on July 3rd, 2014.
BY RYAN C. SHOWERS
Knowing the reputation of the “Transformers” movie series prior to watching the fourth installment, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” could drown anyone into a disconcerting state, but the film is worse than trailers suggest. Director Michael Bay fails on his fourth attempt to give this alternate universe any justice with the new science fiction epic. “Age of Extinction” continues to boil a putrid franchise that is long overdue for extinction.
Since “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” Transformers have been outlawed from Earth, for they are seen as a threat to humanity. A poor mechanic, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), harbors Transformer Optimus Prime in his barn after commiserating with the robot’s sympathetic side. Once the government is informed of the active Transformer hidden in Yeager’s home, Cade, his daughter, and her boyfriend go on the run, trying to rectify the reputations of the Transformers. Meanwhile, Joshua Joyce, a physicist played by Stanley Tucci, has his agenda for the robots to make “Transformium,” a new tool invented for national defense.
Explosions! Talking robots! Kinky, blonde women! All are plot devices surrounding a screenplay that does not know when to shut up. A problem of “Transformers: Age of Extinction” is the oversized screenplay by Ehren Kruger. In his career, Kruger has thrived in the suspense genre with successful films like “Scream 3” and “The Ring,” but Kruger festers this screenplay with spurts of misplaced humor and trite dialogue that feels as if it were derived from made-for- television family movies.
Specific details of the script aside, the screenplay’s basic structure is dismally assembled and the superfluous length plunges it into disarray. The plot is under the misapprehension that it is “changing history” (a direct quote during the film’s exposition), and this ambition is why it feels so endless. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” is 2 hours and 45 minutes long and each of those minutes are felt with agony. Most of the substandard character arcs are completed halfway through the picture, yet the film does not acknowledge its lack of story to tell and keeps running with gaudy action sequences until our patience dwindles into purgatory. Between the three story lines (Mark Wahlberg’s family, the CIA, and the transformium scientists), the film is so bloated that it would pop like a balloon if plucked with a pin.
Riveting films excuse themselves from the criticism of having longer running-times, but “Transformers: Age of Extinction” loses its audience in the second half with nebulous and confusing storyline shifts. If “Transformers: Age of Extinction” would have been released exclusively on DVD instead of theatrically, it is reasonable to believe the most patient person would withdraw themselves from the film after the two hour mark.
Some big-budgeted action films are indemnified from their vapid screenplays if their technical elements shine with craftsmanship, but “Transformers: Age of Extinction” does not enchant with its cinematography or film editing. Bay ineffectively and needlessly uses low angle shots in most of his narrative exposition scenes before the obstreperous action sequences take the stage. Even the look of the film is unbecoming, for it resembles a tawdry photograph smothered with neon lip gloss. The shots are nauseating by themselves, but then to punish the viewer even further, the film editing is a nightmare and the moment-to-moment timeline is terse and incoherent.
At the year’s end, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” should win the superlative for “Movie Most Likely to Cause a Headache and Discomfort.” Atrocious from a directing, cinematography, and editing viewpoint and humiliating from a writing standpoint, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” validates the generic prejudgments against science fiction sequels.

One of the worst movies i’ve seen in a long time
Ahhh where to start. I usually don’t write reviews. But yesterday’s disappointment in watching this had to be expressed either through punching an anvil, or writing this review. But i need my hands this week so I’m going to write a review.
I am a fan of transformers, i loved the cartoon series and the first and second blockbuster hit. I saw quite a substantial amount of plot holes in the third installation and I knew it was going to go downhill from there. I had hopes that the age of extinction would clear some of the plot holes i saw from the dark of the moon, and after seeing the movie trailers I became somewhat excited and felt all warm inside.
I brought my two boys with me, bought some overpriced pop-corns and sugar drinks to stimulate my mind so that my brain could focus and absorb the new concept of the story, hoping to satisfy my hunger for unanswered questions that left my joy decimated at the last series.
I like Walhberg during action scenes, but not when he starts making lame dialogues. And those lame dialogues deviate from being a bit funny, to just stab me in my thighs, depending on who wrote the script. Lame dialogues pervaded the whole friggen movie!
There are countless, pointless, perpetually boring ass things that prevented the story, or just the movie as a whole from being appreciated. The characters were annoying, namely Lucas, Tessa and that friggen Shane who is nothing but a disrespectful little sh*t to Walhberg and exhibited this attitude throughout until third quarter of the movie. I’m a dad alright, and I just wanted to punch him the f**k out! And Walhberg should’ve done the same, what the hell? Few good actors, but the characters were weak.
Every time i thought that the movie was trying to make people laugh, I look around the entire cinema and see people staring at the screen, not laughing. I look at my boys and they’re not laughing, and they’re the type that laugh at anything that moves. I’m not laughing because my mind is struggling trying to keep that hope alive while at the same time enduring the thought of another ominous outcome, “when is this going to end?”, “stop doing stupid things”, “stop trying to make me laugh”, “just stop talking”, “OMG what am I doing here?”
I finish the giant popcorn and my big tub of sugar drink after an hour. I thought that if i just go out for a smoke, maybe i’ll be able to appreciate the rest of the movie because my mind will be refreshed. I’ll take my time, maybe say hi to that nice ticket collector and make small talk. That’s 10 minutes to recuperate. It couldn’t be that bad.
I get back to my seat. Nothing changes…
Every new main event that was introduced in the movie was not properly explained in the end. In other words, it just came out of nowhere and went nowhere. This just piled up leaving me with more and more questions. It seems as if plots were inserted in holes and the viewer was left to create his own resolution of it. The story is incongruently incoherent.
Why after all this time, can’t Bumblebee talk? With all the autonomous robotic, high alien-technologically advanced race systems that are available that they can’t rectify his voice box?? I wanted to see more of the dinobots. And why were they in the… never mind, no spoilers.
Yes most of the action scenes were great, but come on, don’t make it lame by adding something that doesn’t belong there, like another horrific comment, phrase or something that isn’t funny. It destroys the entertainment. In fact, just don’t even talk during the action scenes please!
Graphics are awesome. That’s the only thing I appreciate.
So unfortunately i left disappointed once again. More than disappointed, irritated and frustrated. I asked my boys what they thought, they said “ummm… awesome?” as if that definition has lost it’s meaning and they weren’t entirely sure how to make me feel better. I wanted to research on the writers and directors who created this movie to try and figure out how they defiled a great science fiction theme, but I couldn’t give a cross-bun anymore. I’ll let it roll this time. I feeling a bit better now.
In the end i figure this movie suits those who don’t care too much about story lines and great characters and dialogues. Mainly those who like to see giant robots fight. but the movie is rated for matured audiences and robot fights only took place during half the movie. So then I question what are the creators of this film trying to achieve? Use the name for profit and create something primarily for entertainment purposes. But today’s audience are rational thinkers who want more than just action scenes and loud explosions. So…
