There’s a debate for which film is the biggest disappointment of 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or Transformers: Age of Extinction. It can go either way, but even though I haven’t expected anything besides ‘we’re just going to blow s**t up’ since Revenge of the Fallen, my vote is for T4. Since it was such a big disappointment (what’s new?) for many movie fans, Screen Junkies has taken it into their own hands and answered the question we all asked ourselves while watching it, what the hell is going on?
I get the whole explosion here and explosion there type of thing, I mean it kind of makes sense for a movie about giant alien robots. But the biggest problem I’ve had since Revenge of the Fallen is that the movies haven’t had any narrative or pieces put together like the first did. Each movie looks like shots were just put together to make a final cut.
Now for me, I thought this actually could have been something because of the fresh start. A new human cast, a new story, new Autobots, and new enemies (kind of). And if this was going to lead into a new trilogy, what a great opportunity. But once again we were misled by all the trailers, where it actually looked like it could be good. But nah, what was I thinking?
Check out this Honest Trailer from Screen Junkies, it’s just awesome. It also has me liking this version of the movie a hell of a lot more.
