Have been trying to decide since leaving the cinema yesterday whether I liked it or not. Part of me is thinking, come on, what were you expecting, there were some great moments there; part of me was really deflated by it - moreso than the last three. I knew if I started trying to write what I was thinking down I'd be there for hours; maybe bullet points like stomski is the way to go.
Seems I feel the same now as I did five years ago. At least that's consistent.
I think it's an improvement due to the fact that the transformers get treated as something vaguely like characters, and the dinosaurs were actually pretty good dinosaurs, and pretty accurate. Unlike that other "dinosaur" movie that was out around then.
When Bay does better dinosaurs than the current installment of the JP franchise, you know things got borked.
Also, the titles would make so much more sense, if they were reversed.
AoE really had nothing to do with extinction. But Optimus was identified as the Last Knight of Cybertron.
And TLK was absolutely brimming with surviving knights. Everyone was tripping over them there were so many. It may have even been one of the three dozen plots in it. However, they were actively trying to prevent the extinction of all life on earth.
