Transformers: Age of Extinction has at the very least, some intriguing exploration of the Transformer universe. With Optimus Prime hiding in G1 truck form it’s an interesting way of starting the new trilogy.
Plus you add in the idea that humans have begun to develop their own Transformers after discovering what Cybertronians are “made of.”
The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.
