Transformers: Age of Extinction

Transformers Age of Extinction, Transformers Age of Extinction movie, Transformers movie, Mark Wahlberg

I just watched the new Transformer movie "Transformers: Age of Extinction" by Michael Bay, and it was action-packed and was very exhilarating. The movie is loaded with continous action, and great CGI fights between robots. Mark Wahlberg plays Cade Yeager who is a struggling robotics engineer he lives with his daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz). He bought an old truck so that he can revive it and sell it for much needed cash for her daughter's college tuition, whithout knowing that it was Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen).

I will leave it at that, just watch the movie if you love non-stop action, I guarantee that you will like it.
