Transformers: Age of Extinction: Directed by Michael Bay. With Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Nicola Peltz. When humanity allies with a bounty hunter in pursuit of Optimus Prime, the Autobots turn to a mechanic and his family for help.
The fourth of the films, this one is likely the longest, if only because they filmed an entire film’s worth of material in Hong Kong. It’s actually somewhat more enjoyable than the previous film, nearly completely toning down cheeseball dialogue and plot elements, but there were a few times that I distinctly felt like the CGI wasn’t up to snuff, specifically the midwest reunited scene where the autobots all get back together. For every scene like that though there’s 10 of them that are literally the best CGI you could possibly hope for in a 2014 Transformers film.
Again though, was this film necessary? Meh. Was it somewhat enjoyable? Suer!
