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
IDW comic writer Shane McCarthy, who created the character of Drift, dislikes the movie incarnation, accusing him of being a racist stereotype. Fans were quick to point out that McCarthy has also used words to imply he's not fond of Drift's development in later comics (with which he wasn't involved) which most feel made him a significantly better character, and that Drift's entire original persona was little other than highly stereotypical itself. Which is a moot point, because you can't stereotype an alien robot. See more »
(at around 2 mins) The initial scene is supposed to happen in 'the arctic' yet it appears to be a surface mining site with rock cliffs. The arctic is a layer of ice on top of an ocean. There is no rock ground to dig there. 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.
