Sometimes, a bad action movie is a least worth a watch for some cool action scenes or cheesy one-liners. But not, Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) it doesn’t even have a cheesy charm to it. It sucks for every reason you can imagine a Michael Bay movie would suck. However, the score kicks some serious ass.
Thanks to the hard work of composer Steve Jablonsky, Transformers: Age of Extinction sounds like a competently made movie! Everyone else involved with the movie really half-asses their work. But my guy Steve brought his A game! Listen to this!
Doesn’t that sound amazing? If I played that for you with no context, you’d never in a million years guess that it was composed for a live action Transformers movie where a not so insignificant amount of screen time is spent explaining how an adult could legally date a seventeen year old (yeah, that really happens in this terrible movie).
But, my god, is the score fantastic. The movie does not deserve to have music this good. That’s all I have to say about this terrible movie. Listen to the score.
