Soon, they find out that this piece of junk is a transformer, a species the government is trying wipe out. Partnering with the autobots the Yeagers end up in an adventure that gets them on the wanted list too.
If you’re a Transformers fan the continuation of the story in the fourth movie “Age Of Extinction,” will not disappoint you. However if you have not seen any or some of the other movies you will not be at a disadvantage. The director Michael Bay does a great job of telling the back story of the connected previous movie.
With a three year break between the last Transformer film, they made up for it in length. This two hour forty-five minute movie might seem long unless you love action. In order to keep all viewers interested I think that they could’ve split the movie into two parts. As a result of not doing that you may find some scenarios repeated and predictable. Either way you will still be entertained by the change of setting and change of heart the characters experience.
The language usage is moderate and something to be cautious of. Due to that I would stick to the PG-13 rating it is given.
With new cutting edge IMAX technology -Michael Bay being the first to use it- you have a closer, clearer view of the major action scenes in the movie. Besides a new cast, the plot hasn’t changed from past movies. Also similar to the other movies it is filled with suspense, thrill, and a touch of humor.
Optimus Prime and his personality-filled autobot team have surely met their match. They have the option to flee from Earth or help the humans in a war they have brought upon themselves. The choice, a surprising one that you might not see coming.
