Transformers 5 will go from 0 to 2 plots over a couple of hours

09.09.2015

After awhile, people just threw up their hands and accepted the TRANSFORMERS movies for whatever they were. While everything after the first movie has more than a few detractors, the box office takes for each TRANSFORMERS sequel proved that a good amount of people didn't care all that much if the movies made any kind of sense as long as they contained giant robots in disguise fighting each other and fistfuls of Michael Bay explosions being thrown at the screen. Plot, meaningful characters, all those elements that a movie typically contains seemed to be either overlooked or disregarded or maybe both in order for a steady diet of movie eye sugar.

So it should come as a bit of surprise that Paramount and Michael Bay have ideas to do something different for TRANSFORMERS 5, namely actually tell a story within the confines of what passes for a blockbuster feature film these days. Voice actor Mark Ryan, who spoke as the characters Jetfire in REVENGE OF THE FALLEN and Lockdown in AGE OF EXTINCTION, recently remarked at the UK's Wings And Wheels Convention that TRANSFORMERS 5 isn't going to settle for only trying to squeeze one plot into the next entry. They're going for two.

The first would revolve around Marky Mark's Mark Wahlberg's character Cade, some Autobots and the returning Dinobots once again trying to save Earth from another destructive force that wants to take over and kill everything and everyone. As for the second, that would take Optimus Prime into space to find the Quintessons, creators of the Transformers. (And here I thought it was Hasbro all this time.) Along the way he'd face Unicron and probably die for a period of time until he's brought back for the film's climax, because isn't that how all TRANSFORMERS movies seem to go these days anyway?

No details have come from Bay or Wahlberg or anyone else associated with TRANSFORMERS 5 about these rumors of an alleged plot or two, but, with a 2017 release already marked by the studio, you'd have to think they have some semblance of what they want to do as a probable early 2016 production schedule gets closer.

Michael Bay's latest 13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI lands in theaters on January 15, 2016.

I didn't see the fourth film - decided it was time to just give up on Bay's interpretation of something I loved as a kid.
By most accounts I didn't miss much.
And the Quintessons? I don't know - much like adding Dinobots it seems like fanboy service but still without getting the basics right, but even less so, because nobody likes the Quintessons half as much as the Dinobots.

my impression of Michael Bay

"Guys, how many times do i have to tell you, im not doing another Transformers movies. I know you want me to and the last movies were hits, but that part of my life is over. I've moved on and grown up. I want to do something real. Something with dimension and heart. Something worth while. I dont wanna do another stupid robot movie with.... Wait, is that an actual wheelbarrow of money?

But weren't previous Transformers movies have multiple plots already? Maybe this time they'll find multiple plots that work well then.

You know seeing the creators of the Transformers and moving at least some of the film into space are about the only things that could have made me at all interested.

Ok so...

I think its time to kill off transformers for good no bringing them back and shit. And I know they'll fuck up unicron just like they fucked up galvatron. But w/e i just decided to go leave my brain at the door and forget about the 80's and just enjoy the new transformers for what it really is.

As a fan of the 4 movies, yes, I really wrote that, I really wish they'd focus on smaller scale. The world doesn't need to end every movie. Focus on the characters for special effects, not the destruction. Hound, Crosshairs and Drifts (car mode) never transform in the movies and even Bee has a brief but not full on transformation. I like the movies for what they are and the moments are worth while imo, but a better story with less is more is better than more and more is less fun.

If Michael Bay is attached to it in any way then the movie will suck. That is all I have to say.

Plot is meaningless.

All the Transformers films had bizarrely complicated plots. A plot doesn't make something good, it's why the term MacGuffin exists. Characters make the plot work. Good well written characters can make ANY plot good. Look at Prometheus. Amazing thought provoking plot, poorly written characters.

I don't remember anything thought provoking, aside from trying to work out how no one bothered to fix any of the plot holes.

So this means the film's runtime will be over 6 hours. Based on what we saw before, it took Michael Bay 2 hours and 45 mins to tell 1/4 of an actual movie plot, which means for him to tell 2 plots will mean an even longer exhausting runtime.
This is not a bad idea. Making TF5 is a bad idea!
