Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The few authentic inspirations to be found in the movie's hundred and sixty-five roiling minutes involve gigantic science-fiction contrivances."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"Inflated, interminable and incoherent ..."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"Transformers: Age of Extinction isn't so much a movie as it is a 165-minute propaganda film made to appeal to the widest demographic possible - but mainly for China."
‑ Eric Melin,
"It is frankly pointless to knock its quintessentially Bay aesthetic of massive mayhem and the equally shameless broad corniness of its humor, for all of that is clearly what the film was meant to be and dutifully delivers."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Seemingly written by a thirteen-year old boy and directed by his walking erection, this one is nothing but a booming pile of rubble."
‑ Neil Miller, Film School Rejects
"It barely matters whether this movie is good or bad. Bay is now the sort of filmmaker -- the only one, perhaps -- whose moviemaking goes beyond such binary banality."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"You're either awestruck, dumbstruck or just plain struck in the face."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"The Transformers series returns with what just might be the worst entry yet..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Transformers: A Era da Extinção é o que Círculo de Fogo teria sido caso houvesse sido dirigido por alguém com o Q.I. do garotinho tocador de banjo de Amargo Pesadelo."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"With each film in the Transformer saga, Michael Bay makes it clear that all he's interested in are massive metallic special effects bashing into each other and usually exploding."
‑ Rich Cline,
"In the end, though, this is still a movie about giant robots fighting each other, which is to say it's nearly impossible to take seriously on a narrative level."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Long before Optimus Prime hoists his hulking metal frame onto the back of a giant robot dinosaur, wields his mighty sword and rides valiantly away to save the planet once more, Transformers: Age of Extinction plays like a parody ..."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"It's worse than any of the previous three movies in the franchise and the worst, so far, of this year's parade of would-be 'blockbusters.'"
‑ Mal Vincent, The Virginian-Pilot
"Even the diehard Transformers fans will be hard pressed not to admit that this movie stinks."
‑ Lori Hoffman, Atlantic City Weekly
"To those who say rape culture is a myth, we say "Behold, Transformers 4"."
‑ Tara Brady, Irish Times
