MrSuperheromoviefan - 6/27/2014, 1:59 AM

souNdwAve89 - 6/27/2014, 1:59 AM
The problem is Snowpiercer is a limited screening though.
JoJo1982 - 6/27/2014, 1:59 AM
The movie was...... Ummm......

Smh

Give me a second
Spock0Clock - 6/27/2014, 2:01 AM
18 percent.


Amazing512 - 6/27/2014, 2:04 AM
So when does Guardians of the Galaxy come out again?
Pending - 6/27/2014, 2:06 AM
Yeah sucks about Snowpiercer. It's probably going to get an even smaller release thanks to this movie.
JoJo1982 - 6/27/2014, 2:06 AM
It's better than part 2 and 3 that's for sure

Haduken - 6/27/2014, 2:09 AM
It's better than part 2.that's it. Horrible movie
BaneNascent - 6/27/2014, 2:10 AM
I just got back from watching it for the Midnight run. The movie is super entertaining. An 18%? That's really rough and not justified, wait till some good critics look it over. Optimus Prime first shows up with a iconic version of himself. After you watch Grimlock, Scorn, Strafe, Slug etc it's all smiles. Just as good as Transformers 3, but on a expanded scale and what they leave open for the next movie is pretty exciting.

So I've checked out those critics who they've credited. Where did they dragged out this people from? One is french nobody and the other one is some tramp and i am pretty certain that's not the right one. Holly crap are they getting desperate.
JoJo1982 - 6/27/2014, 2:20 AM
@haduken

Heck it was better than the 3rd one too
Way more screentime for the autobots, I was very surprised about that
Also
Mark > Shia
Humor was tone down, no toilet or sex humor... Thank God and the guy who was going to be the comic relief of the movie, thankfully they killed him off 35 minutes into the movie
Amazing512 - 6/27/2014, 2:22 AM
Granted I'm not a huge fan of this franchise nor do I even plan on seeing this but I was going through some of those reviews and a lot of them seem very forced.
A lot of the reviews trashing it didn't seem to offer much insight but enjoyed coming up with as many tropes as they could to pan it.
Like I said,I'm not a fan of this franchise, butt a lot of those reviews seemed pre-meditated. I'm talking before they actually saw the film pre-meditated.
JoJo1982 - 6/27/2014, 2:30 AM
@amazing

Let me give u a example how dumb this move is.....

Optimus Prime flies away to space at the end of the movie and that will make u say....... Why didn't he do this earlier?


The running time is really bad for this type of movie
DarthSandwich - 6/27/2014, 2:34 AM
Can someone re-edit this into an 1,40? Because that would make it actually fun, there's a fun movie in here it's just bogged down in mindless action.
AgentEX - 6/27/2014, 2:42 AM
I actually loved it. The comedy in it for once was actually funny and the action was nuts. But that's me (die hard TF collector since the late 80's)
NeoBaggins - 6/27/2014, 2:44 AM
The movie was [frick]in bananas. What they're suggesting for the next film is going to be even crazier.

They should have some fun and make a TV spot with the bad review quotes. They are poetically epic and hilarious.

Low RT score? duh Don't all the TF films get that? lol

Gotta see this shit again.
Spock0Clock - 6/27/2014, 2:45 AM
Has there ever been a movie or series that has ever been this reviled by critics, yet so consistently profitable? Maybe some of the more blatant religious moneygrabs like Son of God, but usually critics aren't nearly as negative and they aren't nearly as profitable.

I think Michael Bay has officially broken film criticism as an element of a movie's success. Capitalism is burning. We are all dying. The Universe is a bleak window of pain in a field of nothingness...
seantwakafilmyguy - 6/27/2014, 3:06 AM
This is the most hilarious ad ever.
MrSotoMan - 6/27/2014, 3:13 AM
Reminds me of the ad for Terminator Salvation

[frick]ING LIARS!!!
BenderBendingRodriguez - 6/27/2014, 3:20 AM
Seriously, if you want to see really good sci-fi this weekend, and you are lucky enough to be close to a theater that's showing it, do yourself a favor and watch Snowpiercer, if not available, watch. Edge of Tomorrow. If you go watch TAoE, don't like it, and haven't seen Snowpiercer or Edge you are just a really dumb person and a Michael Bay enabler, now live with that lol
Arrow96 - 6/27/2014, 3:28 AM
Don't watch it guys. It is the second best Transformers, but it's boring as hell and I'm on the edge of hating this film. It's stupid and pointless.
SuperCat - 6/27/2014, 3:32 AM
I just want to see some sh*t explode. Catching it tomorrow.
Whiteandgold - 6/27/2014, 3:36 AM
still better than iron man 3
batz11 - 6/27/2014, 3:37 AM
Me too @SC
BenderBendingRodriguez - 6/27/2014, 3:43 AM
Transformers Age of Extinction, if you liked Man of Steel, this is the movie you've been waiting for lol
KINGPEN266 - 6/27/2014, 3:45 AM
I JUST SAW THE MOVIE LAST NIGHT AND WHILE I THINK ITS A LITTLE TOO LONG I GOT TO SAY THIS IS MY FAVORITE OUT THE 4 JUST SEE IT IF U WANT TO SOME PEOPLE JUST SAYING ITS BAD OR GARBAGE BECAUSE THEY HATING ON THE MOVIE JUST TO TRY TO MAKE IT LOSE MONEY AT THE BOXOFFICE SMH
KINGPEN266 - 6/27/2014, 3:47 AM
I TOOK MY FRIENDS NOW IM TAKING MY FAMILY TO SEE IT TODAY AND ITS ABOUT 20 OF US SO......
loki668 - 6/27/2014, 3:54 AM
Shit blew up. Robots fought. Humans were superfluous (though not as much as usual). Pretty much what I expected. It was a VAST improvement over the last two. Of course, my theatre serves alcohol so that may have helped:)
grif - 6/27/2014, 3:56 AM
critics said tf3 was the best action movie ever. lmfao
MoonDoggyX - 6/27/2014, 4:31 AM
Hate or love this, its the best Transformers yet. Marky mark is WAY better yhan shia. This movie is just as long TDKR, but doesnt feel like it. Its very well paced. Right at about the 2hr mark is when we get the dinobots and the movie feels fresh again...
Badmuffin - 6/27/2014, 5:04 AM
wow...and the same shit will happen to the Turtles. Thank you Michael Bay for destroy my childhood. F***k you and your Picassobot
Nomis1800 - 6/27/2014, 5:05 AM
CG digi-IMAX porn yaaaaaaass
earzmundo - 6/27/2014, 6:58 AM
this movie was terribly written. seriously...i know it would be bad but this was beyond horrible
Deodorant - 6/27/2014, 6:59 AM
Just saw it a couple hours ago.... been there, done that. Pretty much same sh*t same smell. The CGI of the liguid metal, or whatever it is, was horrible. I thought TF3 was better, mainly cus this one was obviously made to milk even more crap out of the franchise.
TheRationalNerd - 6/27/2014, 7:02 AM
Still seeing it and still spending my cash on the 3D/IMAX FVCK a bootleg! lol
Chewtoy - 6/27/2014, 7:06 AM
What's especially hilarious is that even the "positive" marked reviews on Rotten Tomatoes tear into it, so clearly standards are already lowered. Were this the quality of the next entry in the Dark Knight or Avengers franchise, it would be sporting a 0%.
NerdyKevin15 - 6/27/2014, 7:22 AM
this movie was glorious and I love it.
