In Michael Bay's
BOOM BOOM POW WHOOSH Tranformers 4, I'm confused about what happens near the end. The bounty hunter Lockdown wants to lure Optimus Prime to him, so he opens a large orifice on the bottom of his ship that starts sucking Hong Kong into it.
What IS this thing? I'm guessing it's some sort of black hole or gravity drive, but it just shows up out of the blue with no explanation, and we haven't seen any similar technology in the franchise so far. Has any commentary or related material explained what is going on here?
All that stuff has to be going somewhere... unless it's a singularity and stuff is passing through it.
