Michael Bay this time unleashes his robots on Hong Kong and parts of China and continues to coordinate symphonies of devastation and destruction. The movie is released in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D all around the world. The $165 million mega-production will kick start a brand new trilogy with a complete change in cast. The movie introduces new species known as the “Dinobots”, robots that look like dinosaurs.
The Autobots are easier to identify this time around and Optimus Prime makes it a point of reminding viewers that these robots do actually have souls. These metallic superheroes cause huge destruction and chaos as if they are trying to find a new word that can best describe the term “blockbuster”.
Michael Bay continues to develop ways, trying to make robotic shape-shifting look increasingly flawless and realistic in 3D. Transformers: Age of Extinction is the movie closest yet to bringing the cartoon to life. Broad and extensive location shooting in Hong Kong and China also provides for a colorful new battlefield. Not to forget that the region is the second biggest market for the franchise….
The film’s plot busts all previous mythologies. The film actually makes room to feature each robot to its specific personality. Bumblebee once again is given more screen time than other supporting Autobots. Nevertheless, Bay makes smart use of Optimus Prime in both aspects of action and drama.
With the new cast, Optimus Prime and the Autobots rise to meet their deadliest enemy yet. In an unbelievable journey, they are swept in a war of good and evil. The end leads to a bombastic battle across the world. You know what you are in for when buying a ticket of to Transformers: Age of Extinction.
