[IMAX 3D] Quintana is like a dominatrix version of Halo's Cortana. Michael Bay will probably shoot the end of times destruction in IMAX 8D and or 328 K (whatever super high ultra def format we'll have by then).
This is the only fully sustained entry in the series for my money . It is still ridiculous but was engaging and had humor along with the cray cray action set pieces (that one comes to expect from Michael Bay.)
too much blablablablabla but hey..."UGLY MESS.DID YOU FORGET WHO I AM ?". NAILED IT. Thanks, monsieur Bay. The last part is PURE TOTAL GOLD MADNESS ! Like the ratio is randomly changing n stuff, Godard-level. Only Bayhem can give you that.
Any movie franchise that relies on the enthusiasm of elementary schoolers invariably has a limited shelf life. It's just a shame that audience excitement for the "Transformers" property had to dwindle right as director Michael Bay delivered his most discursive, auteurist, and (arguably) most technically impressive entry in the series. The bastard son of Scott, Cameron, and Spielberg has come home to roost.
Bay never gone as berserk as this. It's THE DA VINCI CODE, KING ARTHUR, TRANSFORMERS, ARMAGEDDON, ARRIVAL, MELANCHOLIA, CHAPPIE, BATTLESHIP, CRIMSON TIDE, STAR WARS, A DOCUMENTARY WITH ANTHONY HOPKINS AS A NARRATOR, AN ADAM SANDLER COMEDY WITH JOHHN TURTURRO AS A SUPPORTING ACTOR, THE AVENGERS (THE BRITISH SPY ONE, NOT THE SUPERHERO ORGY ONE), all rolled into one.
Michael Bay lost his head, coolness and filmmaking skills over the last two Transformers movie. He really needs to step down from this franchise, he has nothing more to offer to this series. If he is stubborn and will make an another movie things will not improve for none of the parties.
Anyway this is the weakest link in this franchise that started a decade ago.
A great big steaming pile of nonsense. I had the urge to air out my living room after watching this.
They tried to go the Marvel movie route by trying to check off all the right boxes; good gender mix, check! ethnically diverse robots, check! mark wahlberg attempting humor, well it is what it is!
Watch this while you fold your laundry, or better yet, when vacuuming.. you won't regret missing the dialogue.
The final bayformers(& i'm thinking he has been given more control each time)is such a mad, cuckoo auterist achievement it commands a reexamination of his previous work.It's thoroughly unrelenting, cameras on top of cameras on cranes and gliders - 4 movies of backstory&characters to play with- Bay goes supernova, transforming into Jules Verne and sending Whalberg- his greatest character, to the sea and to the sky.▽
