TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION begins after an epic battle left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history...while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans (led by Mark Wahlberg), Optimus Prime and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world. (C) Paramount

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,
"Metal on metal still the name of the game"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"" excruciatingly monotonous plunge through the id of our cultural subconscious, which means that it might even be a decent allegory in spite of itself.""
‑ Rob Humanick, The Berks-Mont News
"From its stereotypes and endlessly quipping tinpot has-been-bro-heroes to its brazen product placement, pandering to the Chinese market, and incessant bombast, this flick's the nadir of 21st-century F/X blockbusters--no weight or wonder, just clanking off"
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"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
"If in doubt, smash everything to pieces - and be as noisy as possible."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"Transformers have souls, this movie repeatedly tells us, but does Michael Bay?"
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"...if you're looking for the film that makes the Transformers the real main characters and gives them the best part of the story and the best, most resonant arcs, then Age of Extinction is your ticket."
‑ Mark Hughes, Forbes
"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,
"Transformers: Age of Extinction is simply more of the same mindless action, flat characters, and utter boredom that we've come to expect from these bloated mechanical sequels."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Like the generic, Hans Zimmer xerox-style score by Steve Jablonsky, and the lightweight, edgeless and comically earnest indie-pop soundtrack songs by Imagine Dragons, 'Age Of Extinction' is oddly anonymous and impersonal."
‑ Kevin Jagernauth, The Playlist
"I'm not going to say that Transformers: Age of Extinction is quite "good." But it is arguably the least "bad" of the franchise."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
