Calling all Autobots!!
Transformers: Age of Extinction achieves just exactly what it is set out to do — an action-packed film with a dull storyline. The latest and forth instalment of the Transformers film series is the longest of the lot at 165 minutes.
Transformers: Age of Extinction introduces us to our new human hero, Mark Wahlberg, who plays Cade Yeager, a struggling inventor who is also a single dad living in Paris, Texas with his 17-year-old daughter, Tessa (Nicola Peltz) — who I must say, makes for a worthy replacement for Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Following the battle in Chicago in the previous film, Transformers: Dark of The Moon, it is now the future and the government is colluding with big business to capture all Transformers to gather information to build their Transformers that they can control.
In a nutshell, with the help from a new cast of human heroes, Prime summons the remaining Autobots for battle as they are set to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. Explosions here and there, bits of ash floating into the audience and various phallic symbols protruding out of the screen — the film is best watched in IMAX 3D.
Based on its title, Age of Extinction beats around the idea that mankind as well as planet Earth are about to be totally wiped clean, annihilated! Though the storyline is a little meh with its lousy one-liners, bits of humour and hard to follow action sequences, Transformers: Age of Extinction is in other words, a Michael Bay movie.
Set to be released in 2D, 3D and Imax 3D worldwide, the film opens in cinemas on June 26th (Thursday).
