Michael Bay's latest cinematic rage abortion, Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, contains three hours of the most nonsensical plot ever constructed, consisting of informational lectures on statutory rape, robot John Goodman shooting a giant alien vagina, and Marky Mark using a sword as a laser gun. We tried to diagram the movie and just wound up with the contents of a serial killer's pencil box.

But there was one clear message in Transformers 4: Hollywood loves the shit out of China, because China loves Hollywood more than anyone else in the world. Films like Looper and Iron Man 3 did a decent amount of Eastern pandering, but something like half of Transformers: Age of Mechanical Dinosaurs takes place in Hong Kong. It's no surprise that, while enjoying decent success in the U.S., Transformers is a freaking monster overseas.
Transformers 4 has been so successful, in fact, that we're starting to suspect Michael Bay's secret goal might be to avert World War III via dumb robot movies (his primary goal remains "make all of the money in the universe by blowing things up and hating women"). You laugh, but he's doing more for Chinese-American relations than Richard Nixon ever did.
