Storyline

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.

Trivia

(at around 18 mins) Ratchet appears to have already known Lockdown prior to the movie's events. This could be a reference to the online Cyber Missions episodes, which took place between Transformers (2007) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), and featured Ratchet and Lockdown fighting against each other (itself an homage to Transformers: Animated (2007)).

Goofs

The fight scenes in Hong Kong jump all over the place. In one scene Optimus Prime is fighting simultaneously in different parts of Hong Kong Island (Causeway Bay, Central and Admiralty) and also Kowloon, on the other side of Victoria Harbour. See more »

Pretty good
18 September 2017 | by lmcressiaSee all my reviews

This movie was pretty good. Especially compared to the previous "Dark of the Moon" installment. There was a lot of action and a lot of transforming robots, as always. The story was good enough, I enjoyed watching this film. I will say that hearing Optimus Prime threatening to kill someone every 5 minutes was a little jarring. Not because they didn't deserve it or because I'm a pacifist, but because it is totally out of character. Also, the animation for the "new" transformers transforming process is not good... First, the animation is glitchy sometimes. Second, it is more like "magic happens" then getting to watch a vehicle morph into a robot. It just is not appealing. Aside from these minor details, the movie was entertaining and I would recommend watching it if you are a fan of transformers.
