    Transformers: Age of Extinction 2014

    Watched 30 Dec, 2014

    Yet another Transformers film. By itself it would probably be a 2/5 star film, but there was something about this that forced me to give it a lower rating.

    The product placement is terrible. I realise that product placement is a big deal in Hollywood now, and to some extent I don't mind realistic and subtle placement, after all, real people use real products and trademarked names, so it's almost realistic.

    But this film goes above and beyond with product…

    There is no 'point' to the story, no reasoning behind the bad guy, in fact he's not even really a character.

    There is are no redeeming features of this film.

    $7500 budget, 1 paid actor, only 2 minutes of unused footage from the entire film, written, directed, composed, edited all by the same guy.

    This film is amazing just due to what it achieved. But the fantastic (mind-boggling) plot and the serious 'real-world' treatment of time-travel make this even better.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It just seems like half the twists in Sci-Fi now are "he's a clone". The film wasn't bad, it was just a bit predictable, and I thought the big alien/robot/GLaDOS at the end wasn't particularly great. I did however love the special effects in this. The style of technology that was invented for it was consistent and stunningly beautiful in some scenes.
