I’m not sure that Michael Bay, even on his best day, could put together something as big, loud, and over-the-top as this two-hour monster extravaganza. It’s dumb, sure, but it’s a great kind of dumb… just an all-out super-destructive (poor Hong Kong!) action flick that is precisely the kind of escapist cinema that the world needs right now. Zap a couple bags of popcorn in the microwave and gather ’round the TV for a gangbusters night at the movies.

4/5 stars
