Disclaimer: There will be some slight spoilers to the movie, just a warning. Also the views, and opinions here are mine. Thank you :)

So Transformers: Age of Extinction was surprisingly a good movie. Not great, not good good, but good. I feel this movie is better then the first 3.  I had fun watching it, and I will explain why. Warning you now though, I will post slight spoilers here just tiny but if you don't wanna be spoiled look away now!

First off the corny humor, and the sex jokes that plagued the first trilogy has been eased (They're still there though, don't get me wrong) giving the movie a more mature atmosphere, and frankly it's refreshing.

Aside from Optimus, and Bumblebee, who make a glorious return the Autobots that appeared in the first trilogy do not return. Ratchet appears, but for one final time.

The new Autobot casts consists of Hound, a  bulky gruff Autobot commando, Crosshairs an autobot with an austrailian accent, and uh Drift...a samurai themed Autobot who might be a racist caricature of Japanese people. 

The new Autobot team in Age of Extinction is probably a much better team the original team of Autobots from the first trilogy. They're not stock background characters with little to no dialouge. This time each Autobot here has proper screen time, and more dialogue and effectively fight as a team, they also have there own personalities. One of my main criticisms of the Transformers movies was that the autobots, aside from Prime and Bumblebee, are just background characters with no dialogue. I felt Age of Extinction fixes that problem. 


Now I always resent human characters in Transformers related media as they tend to get in the way of the Autobots, and are just there for barely any purpose but to be cheerleaders or people in distress..

However, I feel the human cast in Age of Extinction is different. To sum it up, they're competent. Gone is Shia Labouf as Sam Witwicky, he is replaced by Mark Walhberg as Cade Yaeger, a struggling inventor trying to provide for his daughter Tess who is having trouble going to college.

I think it's refreshing to see Shia gone, Mark as Cade was a very believable character. A struggling inventor raising an only child with barely little money, is refreshing then some love struck teenager like Shia. The moments between Optimus and Cade, were very good. With Cade being the reason why Optimus doesn't give up on humans which he originally did.

Tess Yaeger, the main female character of the movie, isn't really the sexual symbol Megan Fox was. There was barely, if any moments with her that were sexual at all. So it's a major plus in my book. She does suffer the damsel in distress trope, when Lockdown captures Optimus Prime, but she manages to hold her own against some of the movies cybernetic animals. So she is competent.

The weakest human character in my opinion is Tess's boyfriend, Shane, whose a racer but even still he has his moments, like saving Cade, and Tess from the CIA at thier farm.

The human cast, I feel helped the Autobots much better then Shia Labouf, Megan Fox. They engaged in better against Lockdown and even saved Optimus from being killed.

I still prefer a movie with no human characters though. :shrug:

The movies villains are Lockdown, a bounty hunter Transformer who comes for Optimus Prime, he is allied with the CIA. Lockdown helps the CIA go after the Autobots, since all Transformers are now considered enemies of the human race after the battle in Chicago in the third movie.

But kinda hypocritical huh? If you're gonna mark ALL Transformers as dangerous, then why the fuck would you ally yourself with one? That's a major contradiction.

Then we have Galvatron, who makes a long waited return to the fandom since Transformers: Cybertron. He is a restored Megatron made by humans for defense purposes, but comes to get a mind of his own, and rebels.

Lockdown I think makes a much more impressive villain then all the previous antagonists, he oozes awesome, and he has a slick vehicle mode. Galvatron himself is also good, but not as great as Lockdown.

However Lockdown suffers from lack of screen time, once we get to the final battle in China he is gone for most of time till the last ten minutes.

The battles I felt is what made this movie shine especially when the Dinobots finally arrived. They were awesome! Go Robot Dinosaurs!

Now for the problems that plaqued it.

The story is pretty weak as with past movies, while it's better then Transformers 1 and 2, it's not as strong as Transformers 3, which I still felt it had a weak story. There are some plot holes, and the fates of certain characters aren't explained. We don't know what happens to Sam, or any of the past human characters. While Age of Extinction is a sequel, it's also a soft reboot. 

The writing is mediocre at best, but I felt it improved some though from past movies. Shane probably had the worst line in the movie. 

Shane: I'm not gonna save your daughter, I'm gonna save my girlfriend!

Uh that doesn't make sense genius!

The acting is mediocre, not the best, nor the worst though. I felt Mark did pretty good even though he was in alot of bad movies *cough*Max Payne*Cough* and I usually consider him to be a bad actor.

The movies jokes, as I said weren't overblown this time around, were unfunny and still pathetic. I think the only funny moments was with Bumblebee...who still uses a radio to speak...meh!

All in all, Age of Exinction doesn't save the Transformers movie's from it's mediocre to awful status, but this time I felt it was a major improvement over the last three, and I think there's potential for future movies to do much better. The Dinobots however, while still awesome, were only there for the last battle, but boy was it an epic battle!

Should you watch Transformers: Age of Extinction? If you can manage to overlook it's flaws and enjoy for what it is, robots beating the crap out of each other with Robot Dinosaurs, Id say watch it. If you're not eager to spend money on it, then I can at least suggest for you to wait, and rent it once it comes to DVD. But still ROBOT DINOSAURS!

I had a fun time watching it, and it's much better then the original trilogy. It addresses some of the problems of the past trilogy, but it still has massive flaws.

And lastly, I saw a cute little bunny.

I'm a very big fan of Ratchet from Ratchet and Clank, and I'm a big Halo fan, so thats why my name is Ratchet-Halo

[C]PD Ratchet-Halo by inkblot-wolf
Done by :iconinkblot-wolf:

I've come from Fanfiction.net which I write crossovers. Mostly ones based on sonic and Ratchet and clank

I love to play games, and I'm a big anime fan.

Here's my fanfiction profile

And for god's sake people, Ratchet is not my character, he belongs to Insomniac Games. Stop thinking he is my character, he's a video game character.
