After the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leveled Chicago, humanity thinks that all alien robots are a threat. So Harold Attinger, a CIA agent, establishes a unit whose sole purpose is to hunt down all of them. But it turns out that they are aided by another alien robot who is searching for Optimus Prime. Cade Yeager, a "robotics expert", buys an old truck and upon examining it, he thinks it's a Transformer. When he powers it up, he discovers it's Optimus Prime. Later, men from the unit show up looking for Optimus. He helps Yeager and his daughter Tessa escape but are pursued by the hunter. They escape and Yeager learns from technology he took from the men that a technology magnate and defense contractor named Joshua Joyce is part of what's going on, so they go to find out what's going on.Written by
According to Mark Weber, the Transformers Manager of Global Brand Development, the two-headed winged Dinobot was originally going to be called Swoop after the Dinobot from The Transformers (1984), on which he is based. However, he was re-named Strafe (after the Autobot Technobot) because his beast mode design was too much a departure from the original Swoop's classic Pteranodon appearance. The "Transformers" IDW comics paid tribute to this change by introducing Strafe as a character who starts out a normal vehicle-mode Transformer, but is mutated into a two-headed Dinobot. See more »
(at around 2 mins) The initial scene is supposed to happen in 'the arctic' yet it appears to be a surface mining site with rock cliffs. The arctic is a layer of ice on top of an ocean. There is no rock ground to dig there. See more »
as far as mindless entertainment goes,this a pretty good film.it fill you up while are watching but leaves empty after it's over.there is some new blood injected into the series this time around.No Shia LaBeouf or Megan this time around.the characters and the actors are different.this time around we have Cade Yeager(Marl Wahlberg)and and his daughter(Nicola Pelt(whose biggest claim to fame so far has been appearing in the flop The Last Airbender,which was awful but not her fault),as the main human characters.Stanley Tucci has some very funny scenes,and Kelsey Grammar injects some gravitas into the proceedings.one problem I had with the film-it was a tad too long.they could have excised twenty to thirty minutes of the running time.that is my biggest complaint.otherwise,pretty decent.for me,Transformers: Age of Extinction is a 7/10
