Consensus: With the fourth installment in Michael Bay's blockbuster Transformers franchise, nothing is in disguise: Fans of loud, effects-driven action will find satisfaction, and all others need not apply.

David Sims
The Atlantic

Since the film is a chilling two hours and 45 minutes long, that means one's mind quickly wanders, dancing across this film's many flaws, little and big.

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.

If it wasn't for a mess of a third act, Age of Extinction might have been a half-decent movie.

The few authentic inspirations to be found in the movie's hundred and sixty-five roiling minutes involve gigantic science-fiction contrivances.

Be it fiery photogenic explosions, smashing buildings, mega monster battles and more, there is no doubt that action rules this film.

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.

You're either awestruck, dumbstruck or just plain struck in the face.

The Straits Times (Singapore)

If you feel that Frozen or Maleficent gave you an overdose of positive female role models, then Tessa's wailing and waiting for her father and boyfriend Shane to prove their masculinity by saving her (Peltz) will be just the antidote you need.

Infuriatingly silly and pointless, this is the most spectacular and stupid entry in the franchise. No plot to speak of and unbelievably flat characters and… More

With the visual effects and accuracy in its adaptation the only things going for it, there is not much to hone in on the latest installment of the Transformers… More

It took them four films, but they finally made one worth of its weight. It's the best Transformers ever. A frequently stylish, heart-pounding and… More

This started out way better than I thought, but then fell off the rails at the end. Did it end? I wasn't sure because it felt like it went on forever.

So its come to this, despite the fact the last three movies were generally seen as complete and utter tripe, people for some reason still went and paid to see… More
