Jorge Lendeborg Jr.,
After the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leveled Chicago, humanity thinks that all alien robots are a threat. So Harold Attinger, a CIA agent, establishes a unit whose sole purpose is to hunt down all of them. But it turns out that they are aided by another alien robot who is searching for Optimus Prime. Cade Yeager, a "robotics expert", buys an old truck and upon examining it, he thinks it's a Transformer. When he powers it up, he discovers it's Optimus Prime. Later, men from the unit show up looking for Optimus. He helps Yeager and his daughter Tessa escape but are pursued by the hunter. They escape and Yeager learns from technology he took from the men that a technology magnate and defense contractor named Joshua Joyce is part of what's going on, so they go to find out what's going on.Written by
The stunt team trained the young stars for four weeks back in Los Angeles before the shoot. The training involved boxing, sprints, cross training, and was important, because they built a relationship with the stunt guys. See more »
(at around 36 mins) When the CIA is looking for Prime on the Yeager farm, a 30+ foot hole under the barn becomes available for Prime to hide in and even though the CIA team has technology to see through walls as demonstrated earlier in the movie when they capture the Autobot on the riverboat, they cannot detect Prime through a few wooden slates that are spaced enough to see through with the naked eye.

This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I only went to the release because some parts were filmed in Detroit. The first hour was plot driven and tolerable to watch. Wahlberg is always fun to watch and the main chick is cute but the last 1.5 hours is straight action and no plot and I wanted to walk out before I had a seizure.
Special effects were visually pleasing, but would have been better if I cared what was going on. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a hater. I tried so hard to be interested in this flick but I found myself looking at my watch obsessively for the last hour.
On the lighter side, the idea behind the plot was interesting and though provoking but poorly executed on screen.
I have never written a review before, but this movie was so utterly disappointing that I felt obligated to warn humanity. We are truly living in the age of extinction when we allow a piece of garbage like this to pass as a major motion picture release in the 21st century.
