Tessa (Nicola Peltz), Yeager's daughter and his business partner Lucas (T.J. Miller) advise him to hand over this robot to the government, but Yeager isn't so sure. By the time he's made up his mind, it's too late.

The CIA tracks Optimus on Yeager's farm. They descend there in order to kill him. Yeager saves Optimus's life which puts Tessa, Lucas and even his daughter's secret boyfriend Shane's (Jack Raynor) life at stake.

What follows is a loud action-packed drama that includes screaming and carnage, with the climax taking place in Hong Kong, where the heroes pursue the antagonists and the dangerous energy source, "The Seed", that they possess.

The actors, led by Wahlberg and Tucci, perfectly match their robotic counterparts. Wahlberg excels as a concerned and overprotective father and similarly Tucci, backed with a meaningful personality arc, delivers beyond the character. Unfortunately, given the limited opportunity, the chemistry between Peltz and Raynor is missing.

This being the fourth edition, director Michael Bay has ably and artfully managed to hook the audience with a whole new set of human cast, introducing a few new Transformers and giant scale action that is amazingly staged once again.

The comic relief comes in the form of a slew of tongue-in-check dialogues and self-reflexive gags from the previous editions, which makes the dialogue sound cliched and underwritten. It works for the film, but at the same time it reveals a lethargic output from the creative team.

Similarly, if one scans Ehren Kruger's screenplay with a microscopic lens, you'd notice the impressions of numerous films like "Iron Man", "Terminator 2: Judgement Day", "Super 8", "Jurassic Park", and "Armageddon", to name a few, woven into the fabric of "Transformers: Age of Extinction".

Overall, with blatant product placements, technically brilliant visuals and matching performance, the film is a worthwhile watch.
