After the battle of Chicago, the US government under the direction of an evil CIA Agent, has been hunting down all the remaining Transformers (both Autobots and Decepticons).
However, a failed inventor discovers an old truck, which turns out to be a highly damaged Optimus Prime, the leader of the Autobots.
What follows is a chase from Decepticons, the US government, and a mysterious transforming bounty hunter named Lockdown. The Autobots call on some reinforcements from the Dinobots.
Director Michael Bay has made a fantastic Transformers movie. This is the best in the series. Without the hammy acting of Shia Labeouf, and the good acting of Mark Wahlberg, this film was truly good. The critics have already jumped on it, and it is being nominated for the Razzie Awards. Once again, they’ve shown their ignorance. The movie made over $100 Million and is just smashing.
I will say Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Sophia Myles, Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammer, Li Bingbing, and Stanley Tucci were all amazing and the special effects are fantastic.
I’m a little surprised Michael Bay is not returning for number five and six.
