Transformers: Age of Extinction is a 2014 sci-fi action movie directed by Michael Bay and written by Ehren Kruger--the fourth in the bewilderingly popular Transformers live-action franchise.

It is notable for cockteasing the Dinobots as the entire marketing campaign for the movie, but only revealing them over two hours into it, and for about ten total minutes.

Oh, and for joking about statutory rape.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Stop me if you've heard this one before: the giant robots in the title of the movie are secondary characters to a bunch of unlikable humans and their drama.
