‘Transformers 4’ Reviews
If you are still deciding to go see Transformers: Age of Extinction, well, it’s definitely a must-see action thriller! You are not going to want to miss the new species of Dinobots battle it out! Check out the roundup below and than once you see the movie, tell us how you felt about it!
Opening this weekend, Transformers: Age of Extinction is going to be a massive success, bigger than any of the previous entries in the franchise. Because whatever complaints undeniably exist with the quality of the writing when it comes to human characters and emotions, it’s equally undeniable that when Bay unleashes the CGI action spectacle, it makes most all other cinematic attempts at global alien destruction appear timid and uninspired by comparison.
Prerelease tracking services show the movie opening in the $100 million range, although Paramount is trying to temper expectations by noting it’s been three years since the last film in the series, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, played in theaters, taking in $97.9 million on its first weekend in 2011. Also, Age of Extinction has a new look and feel sans Shia LaBeouf, previous star of the Paramount and Hasbro toy-to-film series.
The production is backed by Hasbro, diBonaventure Pictures, and DreamWorks Pictures. Spielberg said “he feels sure fans will hardly be able to stay in their seats.” The movie Transformers 4: The Age of Distinction is packed with 3 D effects of flying cars, mind jarring hydraulic breakdowns, and mechanical transformations.
Resurrected to take on man-made knock-offs of themselves, these metallic superheroes cause so much destruction, it’s as if they’re trying to find a literal new definition for the term “blockbuster” — and indeed, as in the 2007-11 trilogy, which raked in $2.6 billion globally, helmer Michael Bay continues to evolve ways to make robotic shape-shifting look increasingly seamless and realistic in 3D. Extensive location shooting in Hong Kong and China provides a colorful new battlefield as well as an opportunity to cash in on the franchise’s second most lucrative market, and boffo B.O. is expected globally following the pic’s world premiere in Hong Kong and its public unveiling at the Shanghai Film Festival..
