Transformers: The Last Knight

Look, as bad as they were, I had always found some redeeming factor in the previous live-action Transformers movies.

Reviewers have not been impressed with "Transformers: The Last Knight", which has a 17% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It is product, created to sell toys, keep an IP chugging along, and allow Bay to play with a big budget. The action scenes look good, but considering there are only a handful of them, and the majority of the film consists of the aforementioned poor story and character work one has to wonder why anyone would go see a fifth Transformers movie when it's audience exclusively cares about the action, and this provides so little of it, while being a weaker blockbuster than the rest of it's competition.

While the story line could have proven complicated, "The Last Knight" does an excellent job tying together different time periods: the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, Merlin the Magician, and Nazi Germany. One of the big things going into this fifth movie in the franchise is that it will actually help to expand the mythology of the Transformers and reveal even more of their backstory.

One thing's clear: Whatever you think about the Transformers' films, Paramount's not making these movies for the USA anymore.

One of the first Transformers movies to not have Michael Bay at the helm is set to be the June 2018 film, Bumblebee, which is a spin-off of the main series featuring the much-loved autobot in the lead.

Last Knight started at 7PM in 546 locations with "Optimus Prime Time" playing exclusively in 3D Imax and RealD.

Burton is the last living member of the Witwiccan Order, an ancient organisation of Transformers allies, and sends Yeager and handsome professor Viviane Wembly (Laura Haddock) on a quest to look for the staff. Then they need an older female character so they pick up a lovely and brilliant Vivian Wembley ( Laura Haddock).

The first (and still the best) one appealed to the little kid in me, plus watching Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and gang transform on-screen was a dream come true. And trust me, there is plenty in The Last Knight for anyone to go yard with. No, we need an entire scene of Bumblebee killing Nazis. "That's an ending for you".

Does it matter that the movie opens with anachronisms, or that the plot is not plausible in the slightest, or even that the action is over-long? Fans of the Transformers movies will know who she is referring to. Yes, giant alien robots coming to Earth and fighting other giant alien robots is a silly concept, but that doesn't mean the movie has to be insultingly dumb or painfully tedious.
