Holy shit this actually looks good.
I’m no fan of what Michael Bay has done with Transformers over three films but you have to admit that this is a good trailer. Stanley Tucci going from smug to freaking out, the new Transformers designs are way better, Mark Wahlberg looks great in this kind of movie, and most importantly in all the action shots you can see what’s going on. No, seriously, look at that last scene when Optimus jumps off Grimlock and stabs the deception again. The camera is pulled back and stable and you can see the all the action. One of my biggest complaints about Transformers 2 and 3 was that you couldn’t see a damn thing in scenes like that because the camera was too close and franticly shaking.
I don;t know that this movie will end up being any good but from this trailer it looks like it might be better than previous efforts and despite myself I’m actually looking forward to seeing it. It actually looks good and that kind of scares me a bit because I don’t want to be let down again.
Transformers: Age of Extinction comes out 27th June.
