“Transformers” Recap

With the release of “Transformers: Age of Extinction” this weekend, I thought that I would recap my brief thoughts on the previous three films in the franchise. Now I won’t do full reviews on them but rather just a paragraph on each film explaining quickly what I think of them. So let’s just get right into it.

“Transformers” (2007)

Don’t get me wrong, this movie is really stupid. I mean REALLY STUPID. The comedy in the film almost never works, a lot of the acting is terrible, and it’s completely bloated with a near 2 and a half hour run time. With that being said, I still found this film to be a lot of fun. The visual effects are dazzling and the action is absolutely spectacular. To me, there was just enough action and visual spectacle for me to have a good time watching it . . . only just.

Overall grade: B
