Transformers 4: Age of Extinction  
offers heavy metal sound

By Jennifer Walden

Audiences can’t seem to get enough of the good versus evil story involving feuding alien races — Autobots and Decepticons — who hide among us here on earth as cars and trucks. How do I know? Well the fourth Transformers movie, Age of Extinction, pulled in an astonishing $301.3 million worldwide on its opening day. While critics and audiences are strongly divided on their opinion of the movie, Greg Russell, re-recording mixer on the film, sums it up well: “If you’re looking for Shakespeare in Love, this isn’t it.”

Russell, who works out of Technicolor Sound on the Paramount Pictures studio lot in Hollywood, refers to the Michael Bay-directed offering as “a lot of movie.” And it is, in every sense of the word — this latest Transformers iteration is nearly three hours long. It’s a big story that takes the viewer from the rural US to Hong Kong and even into space. There are aerial battles between Transformers, dinosaur robots aptly named “Dinobots,” a plethora of explosions, spaceships with super magnets that attract (and subsequently drop) every piece of metal in the area.
