I think it should come as no surprise that, like all the previous movies in this franchise, Age of Extinction was just as horrible and pointless as I originally thought it would be. I liked it better than the previous movies—though that was probably because Shia LaBeouf wasn’t in this one—but by no means does that make Age of Extinction good. Watching Age of Extinction was quite possibly the biggest waste of my time since watching After Earth, and there is literally no reason to go see this movie unless you really want to see dinobots fight.
I’m going to start this off by saying I love Transformers. Who doesn’t? Large, shape-changing robots locked in an epic battle of good and evil, shooting at each other, blowing people to smithereens. It’s awesome and I could hardly contain my excitement when the first movie hit theaters. Sure, it had its fair share of problems, like all movies do, but it was an enjoyable movie. Then, the second movie came out, and I squealed like a fangirl when I heard they were making it. Then, I saw the second movie, and by God if it didn’t just have a plot for the sake of having a plot. Unfortunately, this is more than can be said for the third movie.
