'Prime' time in 3D is worth watching

Ada —

Bad writing? Check. Mediocre acting? Double check. Awesome action movie? Triple check! Transformers: Age of Extinction is a slam-bang, shoot ‘em up, knock ‘em down, roller coaster ride any action movie buff and/or sci-fi nerd will love.

In the fourth installment of the Transformers films, Mark Wahlberg plays Cade Yeager, a north Texas inventor and robot creator who lives on a farm as a single-father and is unappreciated by his ungrateful daughter, who is full of teenage angst. He is overprotective and she is just plain mean. His daughter, Tessa, played by Nicola Peltz, has a secret boyfriend who is Irish and, oddly enough, is some sort of professional race car driver who magically appears in rural fields to save the day with a car his daughter knows all too well and, blah, blah, blah, who cares! We are talking awesome Transformers action in 3D!

We don’t watch these movies for the lame side stories. We go to see Optimus Prime kick some butt and save the day! And let’s face it, most who will see this sequel have already seen the previous three movies and know about the bad writing. 

Optimus is brought back from the brink by Yeager after Big Brother continues its intent to cut ties with all Transformers. Americans are asked to phone the government if they see any alien activity. 

Autobots have gone into hiding and are being hunted by a secret government task force called, “Cemetery Wind.” Another Transformer, Lockdown, is also hunting the Autobots, but with the intent to enslave for bounty. A big time corporation has figured out how to create autonomous robotic organisms, and each carry with them a tinge of an old Decepticon foe. Once again, it’s up to the Autobots to try to save the world. They are helped by Yeager and his bunch along the way.
