Mark Wahlberg is a refreshing change from previous staple Shia LaBeouf - he plays Cade Yeager, a wishful self-titled engineer who lives amidst overdue bills and eviction notices, just waiting for his big break with homemade robotics

What's interesting is that the hottie, Tessa Yeager (Nicola Petlz), is this time daughter of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and the film uses this to play on the theme of 'mistakes' and 'human error' in a world filled with advanced aliens like Autobots and Decepticons

Tessa Yeager, played by Nicola Petlz, is 17-year-old daughter of single dad Cade Yeager. Having had Tessa at the young age of 20, Cade tries his best to raise his one and only daughter after the death of his wife. Tessa, who feels like the adult between her and Cade, brings up her existence and, who is at the time upset, mentions that she is a "mistake". The movie later on reels the theme back in and emphasis on human error in Cade's attempt to save mankind from extinction.


This instalment promises an epic amount of action with some amazing effects work but possibly could have used better dialogue

Keep your expectations for action high with "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" but perhaps everything else low - the film feels like a giant collage of differing minds on a large canvas, with action meeting expectations while dialogue and development, not so much.


And be prepared for a ton of random product placement in this 2-hour-and-45-minute-long-movie

Be prepared for various meaningless scenes and watch out for a tonne of less-than-subtle product placement scenes that took up way more running time than it should have in this sequel. From Victoria's Secret to Armani, "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" arguably did well in that department if viewers are walking away with evident memories of such painful product placements.
