There's a new trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction.
The movie opens in theaters on June 27.
M'kay, I was onboard up until Optimus Prime b****slapped Grimlock.
And not because somebody b****slapped Grimlock and that should never happen.
Why was the ground underneath him EXPLODING AS HE FELL!? There was nothing falling off him to explode, it was obviously jungle ground so no pipes or anything that MIGHT explode from the force of it. Optimus hit him, so there wasn't anything shooting at him that could explode. So what the hell?!
Ya know as someone who hasn't seen a Transformer film since the second one, this dosen't look...so bad. I appreciate Michael Bay and his brand of vulgar pomp and circumstance (The Rock, Bad Boys, Pain & Gain).
With this serving as a reboot/start of a new era and new quota maybe it'll be good. Transformers 1 functions really well I'm getting a big T1 vibe from this.
And you have robots riding DINOSUAR ROBOTS that's just kinda awesome.
Optimus looks very samurai-ish, and it looks like his design from the first few movies some how comes out of his G1 form. I can dig it. Looks interesting, I wish there were more dinobot action, but Optimus bashing Grimlock in the face was enough to hold me over. It didn't give much of the plot away.
I totally dig the fact that this time the main human characters aren't connected to the Transformers because they need them to save the world. These people just so happen to come across one and get caught in the middle of it similar to Spike, and Sparkplug.
I promised myself I wouldn't get excited about this movie no matter if it has Marky Mark and Grimlock in it, or if Prime makes Grim his bitch, and since Arkham Knight was revealed today, but damn it I'm a little excited. Still too many Transformers jumping and spinning though.
Pros: Complete lack of Shia Labeouf, complete lack of the parents from the first 3, Dinobots are in it
Cons: Michael Bay still directing, humans have turned on the Autobots again, the focus is once again on a group of humans and not the title characters, Grimlock gets slapped by Optimus, same writer as Transformers 2 and 3
In conclusion: not spending my money on this.
Looks interesting, I hope we get a glimpse of Optimus as an old dusty cab-over semi before he goes back to his more familiar form.
Also I love how people make broad generalizations over a trailer. You know what I don't know why the ground is blowing up under Grimlock either, but I bet if you watch the movie you'll find out what a novel idea.
