After the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leveled Chicago, humanity thinks that all alien robots are a threat. So Harold Attinger, a CIA agent, establishes a unit whose sole purpose is to hunt down all of them. But it turns out that they are aided by another alien robot who is searching for Optimus Prime. Cade Yeager, a "robotics expert", buys an old truck and upon examining it, he thinks it's a Transformer. When he powers it up, he discovers it's Optimus Prime. Later, men from the unit show up looking for Optimus. He helps Yeager and his daughter Tessa escape but are pursued by the hunter. They escape and Yeager learns from technology he took from the men that a technology magnate and defense contractor named Joshua Joyce is part of what's going on, so they go to find out what's going on.Written by
Bumblebee's alternate mode in this film is a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS automobile for some of the film, then later a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro concept. Bumblebee also features a new burly design, sporting horns instead of antenna. See more »
(at around 1h 50 mins) From the start of the movie, Tessa is wearing jeans up to the train/wagon scene. Just when the police cars appear, she enters the spaceship wearing camo-pants and a belt up to the end of the movie. See more »
I saw this at a premier event in IMAX 3D. Age of Extinction probably has the worst plot of all the transformers. It's like they didn't even try to develop a story line. It's over 2 1/2 hours of explosions and CGI with cool but uninteresting characters. I feel like they could have done a much better job if they developed the characters more and had better dialogue as the characters had potential. If you are a child this movie is perfect. Lots of pretty eye candy. IMAX 3D looked great although sometimes the picture got blurry. This never happens in Real 3D. I just wish this movie was shorter as I watched it on a Wednesday and didn't get home till late.
