“Transformers: Age of Extinction” Synopsis:
The story took place after the government in the name of Harold Attinger (Kelsey Grammer) issued an unofficial declaration of war against the robotic alien shape-shifting race which included the earth-saving Autobots. They were then forced into hiding as they were caught in the crosshairs of the search and execution crusade. Failed robotics engineer Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) found Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) in a pile of junk whilst he searched for metal scraps to salvage. Such event caused him; his daughter, Tessa (Nicola Peltz); her friend, Lucas (T.J. Miller); and her boyfriend, Shane (Jack Reynor), to be wedged in the crossfire between Attinger’s subordinates and the escaping Autobot leader.
“Transformers: Age of Extinction” Review:
“Transformers: Age of Extinction” was everything that a transformer fan was asking for (or at least close to it). Although some drawbacks were inevitable, the film was able to live up to the expectations of its viewers. Michael Bay did some redesigning on the production value in the latest installment of the franchise, and that’s where most people find themselves disagreeing to like or dislike the changes that took effect.
The movie basically highlighted the robots more than the humans. The story provided enticing subtleties on the back story of “Transformers,” leaving the audience with a lot queries as to where the plot was heading. The avid fans of the franchise will most likely be disappointed with the drastic changes that were applied on the film. However, for those audiences who came for the overwhelming visual presentation, they would find the human-crafted and advanced method of transformation entirely innovative and highly enjoyable.
People who adore the exaggeration of explosions, impressive visual effects and good vs. evil conflict will experience the ultimate fan feels once they watch the film. Moreover, they can also taste bit of intrigues and unexpected plot twists whilst they hold on to their seats.
In retrospect, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” delivered fervently the stereotypical qualities of every Michael Bay version of the robotic entities. The presence of gargantuan mechanoids, the massive catastrophes, the premise of worldwide destruction—they were all there. It did come off to be a bit lacking in the creativity and substantiality of the plot, but all together, the film was a visual phenomenon.
