    Did anyone else see this joke of a movie? I was actually hoping that with Mark Wahlberg this movie might be okay, but it was just AWFUL. Michael Bay literally does it again. How is this guy so ******* rich with these piece of **** movies.

    this is Jeremy Jahns review, who I always find entertaining. Warning: keep your speakers down.

    It was terrible. I had low expectations going in, and it didn't even reach those levels. There are plans to make at least 2 more of these things!

    When will people learn. Michael Bay makes terrible movies. As soon as I saw the release trailer I knew it was going to be awful.

    I just loved transformers too much as kid to give up on it I guess. I didn't like TMNT growing up (shame me, I don't care) but when people watch that they will say the same thing.

    Apparently everything in Hong Kong is rigged with explosives.

    If you don't know what you are getting by now, I don't know what to tell you.

    I still might go though, Optimus Prime riding a giant robot dinosaur is tempting.

    That's why Hong Kong is a happening place.

    They keep making them because you people keep going.

    unfortunately, and trust me this isn't a spoiler, I'm helping you, Optimus Prime rides hat dinosaur for like 10 minutes.

    Even by Michael Bay summer blockbuster standards, it's really, really bad.

    Not to mention the product placement Bay is well know for. During the final battle, Wahlberg decides to take a break for a refreshing and tasty Bud Light.

    1. I didn't even know they made another one.

    2. You should automatically know it's going to be bad if you're expecting Marky Mark to actually make the series better.

    3. When will people stop being surprised that Michael Bay movies are nothing but explosions? As soon as people stop going to watch that garbage, he'll stop making the.

    I decided to sit this one out, after the last one. Maybe when it hits the cheap theater.

    He's made one good one (The Rock) and the director's cut of Armageddon is okay (He put about 20 minutes back in which I think makes the movie's pace much better, not as frantic as the theatrical cut), but yeah it's been all downhill since then.

    Wahlberg with the right director is not bad (i.e. The Fighter) but put him with a hack like Bay then you get lines like "I think I just found a transformer!!!"
