I wouldn’t pay to see Michael Bay‘s Transformers: Age of Extinction (Paramount, 6.27) with a knife at my back, but even if I was half thinking about going I would be having second thoughts because it just hit me that it runs 165 minutes. If anything a film like this should run shorter (85 or 90 minutes), like any overripe, over-cranked assault movie that promises an audio-visual pummeling until it hurts.
