After the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leveled Chicago, humanity thinks that all alien robots are a threat. So Harold Attinger, a CIA agent, establishes a unit whose sole purpose is to hunt down all of them. But it turns out that they are aided by another alien robot who is searching for Optimus Prime. Cade Yeager, a "robotics expert", buys an old truck and upon examining it, he thinks it's a Transformer. When he powers it up, he discovers it's Optimus Prime. Later, men from the unit show up looking for Optimus. He helps Yeager and his daughter Tessa escape but are pursued by the hunter. They escape and Yeager learns from technology he took from the men that a technology magnate and defense contractor named Joshua Joyce is part of what's going on, so they go to find out what's going on.Written by
(at around 1h 13 mins) Crosshairs (John DiMaggio) refers to humans as "meatbags." This is a tribute to Futurama (1999) where DiMaggio had voiced the robot Bender, who also refers to humans as "meatbags." See more »
(at around 1h 21 mins) When Tessa gets into the white car that Optimus is laying on, she shuts the door. The camera changes a couple times. When it shows Optimus from the outside, the door is open, and when it pans back to Tessa, the door is closed again. See more »
Worst of the transformers movies. Was okay until about a 3rd of the way through. Mark Wahlberg was better than Shia, but the movie was bloated with too many similar scenes.
Enough chase scenes and slow motion explosions for the whole of 2014. It would be nice to see some sort of characters developed for the transformers. Because they are created as one dimensional punchlines there is no possibility to have any interesting story that involves the transformers interacting with each other.
Wait for the DVD if you must see it, but you wont be missing much if you avoid it all together.
