Storyline: This is the fourth of the movie series TRANSFORMERS. Optimus Prime the main Autobot created earlier along with its co-Autobots rescue the human race from Galvatron, a specially created Transformer by a CIA assisted private defence agency KIS owned by Joshua Joyce. Though Galvatron was made with a special unstable metal, called Transformium, that has the capacity to transform itself into any thing on earth, it goes out of control of KIS and is all set to transform the organic matter on earth into its own kind leading to extinction of life on Earth. This attempt of Galvatron is foiled by Optimus Prime and its team with the help of Cade Yeager, his daughter Tessa thus terminating Galvatron and its team. Finally, Optimus Prime foresees danger to the human race if it stays on Earth and leaves Earth to space along with a Seed that has the capacity to transform any area of land into metal and cyber form.
Pros: An exquisite visual treat to the audience on big screen. An opportunity to take one’s fantasies to the extreme to learn how machines might control the universe in the future. An wonderful display of graphics technology used in production.
Cons: It was too heavy on display of war machinery that seemed to be literally impossible even in the future. The machines shown are too loaded with so many imaginary features that is difficult to absorb. Lengthy and dragging. Not much of human sentiment attached to the story due to which there is not much interest to know what next. Not much of talent in action and drama of the cast involved is observed. Though the movie might be a commercial success, I consider it as a failure personally. Can be watched once for sound and light effects but not a library product.
