As we count down to the opening day of the 160-minute fourth installment of the beloved Transformers franchise, the first three reviews are in, including one from a top critic writing for Variety, one of the snootiest movie review publications in existence, all rank Fresh on the Tomatometer.
"Who cares if the human characters are even more dispensable and the plot even more scattershot than usual?" --Maggie Lee, Variety
"For audiences seeking the same polished, vacuous grand scale spectacle that has become synonymous with both the series and its director, Transformers: Age Of Extinction gives the series a new lease of life." --James Marsh, Screen International
"You know what you're in for if you buy a ticket, and Bay seems determined to wear you down with the biggest craziest 'Transformers' movie yet." --Doug McWeeny (hahaha), HitFix
So far, it's almost as if the critics have finally caught on, after seven long years, to the fact that none of these movies were ever meant to win Oscars.
I'm so excited.
