The first 12 minutes made my jaw drop. The action and CGI were excellent!
Then we meet the lead character, and I'm rooting for her. I mean, who doesn't like Hailee Steinfeld?
But her character sucks, all the humans suck, all the following scenes drag out too long and are mundane AF. Even the evil bots are meh. By the halfway mark, I was begging Michael Bay to return.
verdict: HARD PASS
