“This is not war, it’s extinction”

A few months ago, I watched the new installment of the Transformers franchise, namely “Transformers : Age of Extinction” and I thought of giving a review for the other fans who are planning to purchase the Blu-ray or DVD of the movie.

The Story

The movie begins with a history that we have not witnessed before but there is a small link to the previous trilogy, which connects the past (the age of the dinosaurs) to the present situation of the planet Earth as the movie goes along. Even though the movie is serious, there are some hilarious scenes in between, making the viewers eager to know what is going to happen next while having a good time.

The Characters

New characters, both humans and Transformers have been introduced in the movie while the legendary Autobots, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee remain as who they were in the trilogy, but they get a makeover in the middle of the movie. The other Autobots who have joined them are namely, “Hound”, “Drift” and “Crosshairs”. The Decepticons are designed by a company called KSI and two main ones are “Galvatron” (reincarnated Megatron) and “Stinger”. There is also an impartial transformer called “Lockdown” as well. When humans are considered, I liked all the characters except for the girl (Tessa) because she only knows to cry and call for help, unlike in the trilogy where the lead female roles were courageous. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the Dinobots. They are awesome !

In conclusion, I would give this movie a 9/10. Hope you will enjoy it.
