Has Optimus ‘passed his’ Prime? The first hour of Michael Bay’s highly anticipated Summer blockbuster feels a lot longer than is should have, with plenty of narration and exposition the film seemed to loose track of where it was heading and this was supported by the lack of action and the continued unnecessary soap-opera family drama attached to the films hero protagonist Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg). The CGI sequences were poorly edited and had very little association with the films narrative, it almost felt like they were squeezed in because they had to be included in this ‘action’ spectacular. Overall Michael Bay has seriously overdone this franchise and the ending tease that it is potentially going to continue is quite frightening for Bay’s career, enough is enough.
