2014’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction” introduced the science fiction franchise to a brand new low, if that was even attainable. The human characters in Michael Bay’s “Transformers” franchise have by no means been very compelling, however the protagonists of “Age of Extinction” are downright detestable. The movie truly accommodates a scene during which the greasy racer Shane Dyson (Jack Reynor) justifies his relationship with an underage lady, Tessa Yeager (Nicola Peltz). He cites the “Romeo and Juliet law.” “Transformers” followers have been used to disappointment, however this was downright offensive.
The movie doubles down on its justification of Shane’s actions by permitting Tessa’s father, Cade, (Mark Wahlberg) to forgive him. Shane, Tessa, and Cade all work collectively to assist the Autobots. The subject with the movie is that Cade by no means actually proves himself to be an important father. He claims that he loves his daughter, however by no means exhibits any proof to assist that.
Shane is already established as being malicious in his intentions, and having human characters workforce up with the Decepticons is not that far-fetched for the franchise. Earlier within the movie, the CIA operative Harold Attinger (Kelsey Grammer) releases Galvatron in an try to kill Optimus Prime. Instead of a bland authorities tycoon, would not it have been extra attention-grabbing if Shane had allied himself with Megatron?
