Technically speaking, this is a must own for 3D lovers
on September 30, 2017
First things first - the film's story and acting gets no praise from me. On that alone, I'd give AGE OF EXTINCTION two stars. That said, Michael Bay knows how to direct action and put a gorgeous picture on screen. Still, that doesn't warrant an additional star, let alone two. The four stars are awarded for an absolutely breathtaking 3D experience and the 360 degree, immersive Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Hands down, this is of the highest reference level for both and regardless of your thoughts on the movie, for the current price of $17 any 3D enthusiast would be foolish not to pick this up. The picture quality is nearly flawless with just the right combination of depth and pop-out effects. In the opening scene, when the cuddly dino raises his head up and toward the viewer, it truly feels like he's coming out of the TV. I can't rave enough about this 3D presentation. And the Atmos sound is exhilarating as you're enveloped in the action with objects rotating around the room from left rear to right rear and seamlessly flowing all the way to the front. Highly recommended on technical merits alone.
