New Transformers 4 Movie Delivered Great Action,Drama,Suspense & More
Paramount Pictures released their new hardcore,action flick “Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was highly entertaining with tons of action,drama,suspense, and even a little drama to boot. It stars: Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor as Shane Dyson, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, and T.J. Miller.
In the new flick, struggling inventor, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and his daughter Tessa Yeager (Nicola Peltz), stumble upon a truck that they eventually learn is the famous Optimus Prime Autobot. From there, Cade goes to work to try and repair Optimus as he was badly injured from a human and Decepticon attack.
Unfortunately, it’s not too long before Cade is paid a visit by an elite CIA unit called, “Cemetery Wind,” which was formed by a man, named Harold Attinger, with the intent of hunting down and exterminating the surviving Autobots. The encounter quickly turns violent after Cade refuses to tell them where Optimus Prime is located. However, Optimus eventually rescues Cade and Tessa from the altercation.
Next, Tessa’s mystery boyfriend, Shane Dyson (Jack Reynor), arrives on the scene in his race car to help them escape the situation. As the very long movie rolled along, we learn that the plot thickens quite heavily. A company called KSI is working with the CIA to recreate Autobots of their very own. However, it’s eventually discovered that they accidentally resurrected Megatron in a new, more powerful Autobot body. And it’s revealed that his plans are to activate what’s called the seed, which would destroy tons of humans in exchange for allowing him to build a huge Transformers army.
Optimus and the gang also had to deal with “Lockdown” and the rest of the Decepticons. Obviously, this became too much for just the Autobots and a few humans, so Optimus got a couple of Dinobots to join in on the fighting fun. And from there, we saw nothing but extreme explosions and battle scenes to close out the movie. It had a very suspenseful and fulfilling ending.
Again, I thought the movie was very entertaining, but a bit long and drawn out towards the end. The runtime was 15 minutes shy of 3 hours, which I think could have been cut down to at least 2 hours and 20 minutes. I thought Mark Wahlberg did a good job. Nicola Peltz gave us some good eye candy. So, all in all, I gave it a solid B+ grade. Stay tuned. Also, get your favorite Movie stuff, and more by Clicking Here.
