Transformers: Age of Extinction FAQ

io9.com has posted another one of their amusing and very sarcastic "FAQ" that breaks down all the story and characters problems with a movie, this time with a focus on Transformers: Age of Extinction. the FAQ focuses on the story, not the special effects resulting in highlighting that once you ignore the eye candy, Bayformers 4 falls apart. SPOILER WARNING as it pretty much covers all the movies story beats. If you have seen the movie (or don't mind spoilers), be sure to check out the AOE FAQ here. Then come back here and let us know if agree or not.

  1. Just disgusting, these critics just love to hate. You can do this with any movie. These people are just out of control and taking themselves way too seriously, They are like 10 yr old kids.

  3. Err..no its the people trying to make sense out of the movie that are ten year olds...admit that the storyline,acting,dialogue, product placement etc is pure garbage.. These movies are like a series of ads which is why they are enjoyable...not because they make any sense

  4. when they spend more time explaining why cade isnt in jail for statutory rape instead of explaining the dinobots or even giving them some sort of origin there is a problem there. and even for a popcorn movie where you shut your brain down this movie DIDNT EVEN try and i liked armageddon....

  5. I kind of agree with this:
    -------
    Frasier hates Transformers so much that he wants to kill them all, and do that he's teamed up with… another Transformer?

    Yes. It should be noted that Lockdown has a massive spaceship and an army of robot soldiers and dogs, and thus represents an infinitely greater threat to humanity than Optimus Prime or the other four remaining Autobots, none of which have an army or giant fucking spaceship.
    ------

    You don't like them, but you will team up with one like that? In the end, Lockdown seemed to have kept his word...but still, you hate TFs that much, you are going to trust one?

    1. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." I think that's really the only thing that was said to try and explain his reasoning.

    This movie is supposed to be the beginning of another ground breaking series of events in the transformers movie series where the humans betray their autobot allies who have fought and died to keep planet earth and it's human inhabitants out of the hands of the decepticons and alien harm in general. And with the discovery of transformium, the humans THINK that they can protect themselves by manufacturing transformers and controlling them, thus eliminating the need for the autobots' help. But with the return of Megatron (galvatron) the humans now see that they cannot replace the autobots and now must regain the autobots' trust and respect after they hunted and melted down many of their allies.

    The story that this movie tells is a detailed one so that's why the movie is so long. And the humans are the antagonists of the story, so that's why the was so much talking.

    Michael Bay told us last year that this movie was going to be a particularly different type of transformers movie than the last three

    With Optimus prime presumably going to face his creator(s) in TF5, (MAYBE primus and/or unicron, the next TF movie should have a lot more action in it and a lot more transformers.

    P.S. I know this is a silly thing to ask, but who is waiting to see if bumblebee is going to die? He might face off with galvatron on earth and loose I think.

  7. The Bay-man has made the worst and most worthless Transformers movie yet. I know, hard to believe, right? How could any summer blockbuster be as dull, dumb and soul-sucking as the first three Transformers movies? Step right up.
