Mark Wahlberg plays Cade Yeager, who stumbles upon a severely damaged Optimus Prime as the US military, led by Harold Attinger (Kelsey Grammar), hunts the Autobots and Decepticons to extinction. But aiding the humans in their hunt for Autobots is another mysterious, alien force.
Transformers: Age of Extinction starts off a bit slow, as we get to know Cade and his family. Though, T.J. Miller provides a bit of comedic relief. The rest of the film gets darker as humans unleash their own version of robotic copycats that threaten more than just the remaining Autobots. Big explosions and impressive CGI make for a fun experience. At first glance, it seems like a rehash of previous film plots. But the alien bounty hunter provides an air of mystery. But that fizzles out too. The big showdown finale happens in Hong Kong this time, which makes for a nice change instead of yet another generic, US metropolis. The addition of pretty scenery and Dinobots, however, come too late in the film. It feels much too long. And by the end, I had quit caring what would happen. It’s a mindless, fun film for Transformers fans, but I was hoping for a bit more.
