The movie stars: Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor as Shane Dyson, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, and T.J. Miller. We’ve included blurbs from a few of the critics,below.
Glenn Kenny at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 63 score, stating: “Confounding. But not without its thrills. Maggie Lee at Variety, gave it a 50 grade, stating: “It’s the robots — endowed here with character-rich physicality and almost human-scaled facial features — who give the film its emotional heft.”
Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 40 score. She said: “Let’s say “Bayed,” as in “being Bayed,” is the core principle at work in the films. In general, being Bayed means being beaten, blasted, bashed, crushed, melted, morphed, reconstituted and remade over and over and over again.”
A.O. Scott over at The New York Times, gave it a 40 score. He stated: “You can admire what he does without really enjoying it, and two hours and 46 minutes of pulverized architecture is a lot to endure. But in every Michael Bay movie there are at least a few moments of inspired, kinetic absurdity.”
Scott Bowles from USA Today, gave it a very bad 38 grade, stating: “Deafening, deadening and about two hours too long, Extinction would mark the weakest installment yet of the 7-year-old Hasbro franchise — if the previous three movies were discernible from one another.”Read More..>>
