Movie review score

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.

One Response so far.

    Stewart Says: Just woeful. No plot (literally, NO plot), random action, constantly moving camera, characters that are never introduced to the viewer or named, cliched dialogue, stereotypical characters, need I go on? Yes I shall. This is the biggest pile of shit this ‘Summer’ from Hollywoodland. If you thought the previous Transformers films where a ‘bit long’ or a ‘bit silly’ then you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    Just complete and utter dreck. I beg you to save your money for something worthwhile
