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
Drift's original alternate mode was a Nissan Silvia S15 sportscar, but this was revised to a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse sportscar and a helicopter (based on the Autobot Springer, a Triple-Changer Transformer who switches between a car and helicopter). He also bears black samurai armor, in an homage to the Transformers: Animated (2007) Autobot Yoketron, another Japanese-cultured Transformer, who possessed a similar armor. See more »
(at around 36 mins) When the CIA is looking for Prime on the Yeager farm, a 30+ foot hole under the barn becomes available for Prime to hide in and even though the CIA team has technology to see through walls as demonstrated earlier in the movie when they capture the Autobot on the riverboat, they cannot detect Prime through a few wooden slates that are spaced enough to see through with the naked eye.

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.
