“Transformers: Age of Extinction” Movie Review
Evil CIA manager, Kelsey Grammer (as Harold Attinger) has made a deal with an alien species to help him eliminate the last of the Autobots. For some reason, Grammer has decided that our friends were now our enemies, and only a few Autobots are left…..all of them leaderless and in hiding.
Mark Wahlberg (as Cade Yeager) is a dirt poor inventor and handyman oblivious to the real world. His house is about to be repossessed and his 17 year old daughter (Nicola Peltz as Tessa) is growing up before his non-seeing eyes.
Searching for junk to turn into a robot or other invention, Wahlberg sifts through a run-down theater where he spots a beat-up old truck. He pays for that (using a friends money) and tows it to his barn / laboratory / workshop.
Tinkering with the truck he realizes he may have stumbled across a Transformer. He did.
All hell breaks loose as the evil forces in the CIA now target Cade, his daughter, her boyfriend (huh? boyfriend?), and the remaining Autobots (including BumbleBee).
There is one f-word, but, otherwise the whole family will enjoy this movie. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” gives us amazing computer generated action with worldwide settings (including the destruction of Hong Kong), from the moment Optimus Prime has been located by the CIA to the end. Wahlberg rocks. He is a great replacement for Shia LeBeouf, and Grammer is good as evil.
