I'm with you 100%. This is the first of the series that i haven't been spoiled (enless you count the Tv spot of Lockdown talking to Prime; but i really don't count that as anything spoilish).
So i hope those that saw it keep quiet till at least the weekend. :grin:


Sure but if anyone wants to read the reviews, here they are:

http://www.mtv.com/news/1852304/transformers-age-of-extinction-early-reviews/


Are there any spoilers in these reviews? I read some of the first one, but I stopped to avoid spoilers.



The link is only to exerpts of the reviews and they are spoiler free. I do not know about the reviews themselves as I have yet to read them. What I find baffling is the quote from one review saying that BumbleBee adds MUCH NEEDED comic relief to the film. I would have NEVER expected a transformers Michael Bay film to be much in need of humour, so that statement means a lot. All we need to know is that so far, everyone who has seen it has liked it overall and thats good enough for me.

Oh man, you guys have no idea how happy I am to read this quick spoiler free quote from a reviewer:

"It’s not just that the Autobots look more distinctive and easier to tell apart than ever in “Transformers: Age of Extinction” - as Optimus Prime never tires of reminding us, these robots have actual souls. So who cares if the human characters are even more dispensable and the plot even more scattershot than usual? Resurrected to take on man-made knock-offs of themselves, these metallic superheroes cause so much destruction, it’s as if they’re trying to find a literal new definition for the term “blockbuster” - and indeed, as in the 2007-11 trilogy, which raked in $2.6 billion globally, helmer Michael Bay continues to evolve ways to make robotic shape-shifting look increasingly seamless and realistic in 3D."


All I ever wanted was for the robots to be the stars of the film and to be able to follow them and the action and it looks like finally I will have this simple wish come true.

So the story is "weird" and "scattershot" but the images are "better than ever". Not sure what to make of that. I'm still seeing it, and I will probably love it, but that kinda raises a flag.

Also, the previous trilogy was also reviewed badly, and I ended up enjoying all 3 of them on 1st and 2nd viewings. So I don't put much stock into Bayhaters' reviews. I'm gonna go to the theater, get my big-ass bucket of popcorn and drink, and I will enjoy myself for 3 hours. I just have to remember to go to the can beforehand.

Dont worry about those lines, they raise no flags to me. Critics greatly disliked the last 2 films but people are actually enjoying the fun ride that is this one for once and that speaks volumes to me. What I get from these reviews is that, though the negatives can be pointed out, they do not take away from the enjoyment of the awesome visuals and action. And that is much much better than when the same critics would go : "Wheelie humping Megan Fox's leg and Devastator's balls really ruined the fun film for me".

So what I mean is if these critics actually had some fun this time, then there is no reason it should not be a blast to anyone who liked them before. And I like the fact that this has a heavy plot, I really look forward to it. Scattershot is not such a bad thing when its happening in the background of grandiose Transformer action and what it tells me is that there is a lot of planning to ensure more story material in upcoming films. I mean think about it, they are actually discussing plot regarding a Bayverse transformer film!

Simply said: a scattershot plot is better than no plot and IF you dont like the plot then the amazing transformer visuals in the foreground will help you ignore it. It's a win win.

Also, all these reviews confirm the early review that was posted a week ago. I guess that guy did see the film after all.

It actually looks like they're putting a heavier emphasis on the Transformers as characters for this one. Albeit only a little, but I like the looks of what they seem to be going with. The tone of the movie actually looks a bit more light-hearted- the Autobots are having a bit of fun and making snide remarks in a way very reminiscent of the old cartoon, and I think I like the look of this a lot more than the heavily grim tone of the 3rd film (where we see people vapourized on screen, and the Autobots don't exactly do a whole lot other than die horribly...RIP Ironhide...).

So yeah, I'm actually pretty pumped. I don't think it will be as good as the first movie (which in my opinion was the best) but it looks to be better than DOTM and a whole lot better than ROTF (which I actually liked, scrotums and all).

TRANSFORMERS TRILOGY AND RELEASE DATE NOT SET IN STONE

Postby mooncake623 » Mon Jun 23, 2014 2:55 pm

Weapon: Concussion Rifle
Earlier last week we've reported that Transformers 5 was promised by Paramount Pictures Senior Vice President Edward Ryan in 2016 (here) at the TF4 Screening during CineEurope 2014 Barcelona. But NOT SO FAST reports ign.com. According to IGN's Roth Cornet who spoke with Transformers: Age of Extinction producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura the release date seems to be inaccurate. In fact the next movie might not even be part of a trilogy!

"We're not planning on doing a trilogy," he told Roth. "We're not not planning on doing a trilogy. It's really a one-movie-at-a-time philosophy. It feels a little arrogant. Both [director Michael Bay] and I feel like it's a little arrogant of us to presume success each time. We know our fans are really out there and they're going to come, so we presume a certain amount of success. But all the energy will be thrown into the next movie, if we're lucky enough to get there."

unless the next one is a reboot its going to be a sequel or prequel theres no way around it. You could do a spin off but even that would be part of the established story line.

I think they're going to do like they said the 1st time. They're just backtracking now to not look like overconfident blowhards. Saying that they were ready to make a trilogy made it sound like they were taking the success of this film for granted (and why shouldn't they?) and the next 2 are a foregone conclusion.

Oh PUH-LEEEES, the movie's aren't going to end. They're a summer blockbuster that always makes money with the masses. No way they're going to stop making them. (I mean this all in a depressive sense, mainly because I really dislike the movies)

My hope is just that they'll get a new director for the next bunch of them.

The whole reason i am a transformers fan is because of the films. The new film looks like the best based off of the trailers stills set videos, and even toys.And furthermore the movies all look great with bay directing them. Again my opinion. :BOT: :michaelbay:

What's so surprising about them saying that AOE does not necessarily start another trilogy. This news doesn't suggest anything so different from how they handled the first three. They made small connections in order to link three different plots about Decepticon's trying to destroy the world. The connections were simple enough for them to not worry so much about tying things together. That's probably how they'll approach any sequel to Age Of Extinction.

Yeah that's horse poo considering how this movie ends. It's literally the first act.
And leaves it needing a next film to end the over all plot.

The very end of the last TV spot showed Grimlock snapping someone in half with his jaws. Not sure who, it was just a mess of parts and green fluid. (Made me think it was Crosshairs for a second, but that wouldn't make sense.)

I wish Bee would keep that '69 Camaro alt mode. Looks so much better than the new one.
