Transformers review: Age of Extinction effects are so considerable we can’t assistance …


Well, that wasn’t so bad.

Thanks to state-of-the-art special effects, a fourth film in a array is most improved than a progressing instalments.

Four years after a Transformers – comprised of a immorality Decepticons and their drastic enemies, a Autobots – leveled most of Chicago, a automatic giants are now shunned by humankind with a US supervision black ops group rounding adult any stragglers.

What a authorities don’t know, however, is that a untrustworthy house is regulating a robots’ record for a possess ends.
