So overall, I liked the movie. Lots of action and shit blowing up. But my question is, why were the special effects so shitty? It is a Lionsgate movie with loads of famous actors in it, so I doubt it was a budget thing. But the special effects were shit. I put off watching it for the longest time because of how fake shit looked in the trailer. For comparison, how long ago was it that the first Transformers movie was made? Those special effects were on point. It looked like real robots fighting and shit. Now, however many years later, we have a movie that looks like it was made with the “Action Movie” iPhone app that lets you set shit on fire in your pictures.
