Transformers: Age of Extinction review

Transformers: Age of Extinction review
The tagline for Transformers: Age of Extinction tells us that “The rules have changed.” Yet the formula here remains largely the same, which must mean that the rulebook only has one page. If you’ve seen at least one of director Michael Bay’s Transformers films then you can probably predict how this plays out. The intent is to deliver the most glorious destruction and explosions your eyes will ever see, enhanced by IMAX 3D no less. This involves...

We then realise that we’re actually watching people, watching a film, in an auditorium. How quaint. Not only is Michel Hazanavicius’ The Artist loaded with symbolism and subtext, it happens to be a black and white film with no dialogue. Hell, it’s not even in widescreen! Set in 1927, silent movie...
