What’s it about?
The plot is ridiculous to explain and a waste of time. Just think Michael Bay, explosions and giant robotic fights that are never-ending and repetitive.
What did we think?
Anthony Sherratt says: Quite simply the latest Transformers is an unwieldy and overly complicated plot populated by shallow, cliched characters.
I enjoyed Mark Wahlberg’s performance but so little of this movie feels necessary or important it ends up grating. At 165 minutes it’s actually about a full hour too long and the final act appears to be present only to satisfy the Chinese investors. For a 3D movie it was ridiculously two dimensional in nature but those merely seeking explosions and fights might get through it if they have enough caffiene. Or focus medication.
