Sex & Nudity

4/10

An early scene features lingering, exceedingly close-up shots of Carly's backside while she wears skimpy bikini underwear and one of Sam's shirts. We watch as she climbs on top of him and straddles him in bed. Though we never see the pair in bed together after that, a sexual relationship is clearly implied. And even though they're apparently living together, both agree that they're not yet ready to say "I love you."

Carly's physique gets regular attention from the camera, though never quite as obviously as in the scene described above. Dylan has eyes for her, and he compares her curvaceous figure to the sensual form of a vintage automobile in his collection. Someone makes a joke about wanting to frisk Carly, and a scene with her eating licorice is played suggestively. Other women also wear revealing tops, while skirts and dresses display a lot of leg. An office worker dubs a colleague a "hoochie mama" because she wears a skimpy outfit. Somebody fondly recalls a secret affair with a woman and makes a suggestive comment about her backside.

Sam's mother offers him an explicitly titled book about female orgasms and says he won't be able to land another beautiful girlfriend unless he's well endowed and knows how to pleasure a woman. A male colleague corners Sam in a restroom to give him secret information, but a scuffle breaks out between them insteadending with the man straddling Sam with his pants down in a stall. It's something that looks like a violent homosexual tryst to Sam's boss, who happens to walk in as they stumble out. (His boss later mentions the encounter again, stressing that he doesn't care about what his employees do with others in a bathroom stall.)

Violence & Gore

8/10

Men get vaporized by Decepticon guns, leaving only their skulls and bones rolling down a street. A grieving, begging Autobot is mercilessly executed, shot in the back of the head by a laughing Decepticon. Terrified Chicagoans scramble to flee attacking Decepticons, whose reinvigorated troops systematically decimate the city, on the ground and in the air. Skyscrapers are toppled, roads and bridges destroyed, cars flung this way and that. The destruction of the Windy City in the last hour of the film, in fact, is nothing short of apocalyptic, especially as a massive, snakelike Decepticon named Shockwave eats away at buildings and foundations. High-speed chases and enemy fire leave cars flipped and strewn like litter across a freeway. At least two men plunge to their deaths from high windows. A subway car is littered with human bodies.

In a lengthy scene, Shockwave and a host of other Decepticons try to kill Sam and his friends, who are trapped in a toppling tower. They repeatedly slide this way and that, along with office furniture and broken glass, as the building shifts and crumbles.

As for the Autobot-on-Decepticon battles, they're myriad, with those colliding robots shooting, pummeling, pounding and killing each other frequently. Transformers on both sides of the conflict are dismembered and decapitated as well as drawn and quarteredoften with red, oil-like "blood" gushing from their wounds. Several of these battles end in brutal, execution-style finishing attacks.

A man savagely hits a woman in the head with his gun. Other people are held at gunpoint. Several planes containing humans are shot down.

Profanity

7/10

We hear one full f-word and another that (sort of) trails off. The acronym "WTF" comes up as does the uncompleted phrase "clusterf--k." Around 10 s-words. Jesus' name is misused once or twice, and God's is abused about 15 times. Other language includes 10 or so uses of "Ass," as well as a handful each of "Hell," "Damn," "Dick" and "Bitch." "Winker" and "Bastard" are each uttered once.

3/10

Several scenes picture characters drinking beer, wine and champagne. One close-up shot zooms in on bottles of liquor sitting on a table. Quoting the movie Tommy Boy, Sam's Transformer friend Bumblebee asks someone who's behaving badly if he ate paint chips as a kid.

8/10

Lots of battles, explosions, and gunfire. Very Intense and Very Disturbing.

We see countless people get killed by Decepticons and falling objects.

The Decepticons and other transformers are very frightening and will scare young viewers.

The final 30 minutes and the end of the movie is very depressing and sad.

Somewhat graphic images of Chicago in ruins and destruction is disturbing.

Total: 30/50
