By now, anybody about to sit through a Michael Bay film knows what to expect: Lots of high-impact explosions, plenty of urban destruction, and an endless supply of bad, bloated dialogue. But the 165 mind-pummeling minutes of Transformers: Age of Extinction represent a new high in low-brow one-liners, with nearly all the characters — human or otherwise – speaking as though they learned how to talk by watching WWE matches.

But don’t take our word for it: Below are some of the clunkiest, corniest, most appropriately robotic lines from Age of Extinction, all taken straight from the screen. Normally, we’d preface this with a spoiler warning — but it’s hard to ruin a movie that barely has a plot in the first place.
