Story wasn't really all there (at least for me), Sure there was some cool action scenes, aided by amounts CGI, a third rate villain, thin characters (Patton and Renner). It just seemed to be more like a new location, and new big action sequence to showcase. I am in no way saying it is a bad film, I give it a 3/5, but It's one of the more least enjoyable films in the franchise and action films, but It just feels like any other action blockbuster, nothing really spectacular or different that sets it apart.
And when I mention Bay's style, I'm more talking about his films per se. The fact they have action scenes aided by CGI to entertain the average movie goer, throwaway characters, cool moments. Not his actual style, though I feel we are talking more about the former
