The fifth film based on Hasbro's automobile-robot toys and cartoons is virtually indistinguishable from the aforementioned movies, and it fails for the same reasons they did: more CGI than story, more action than character, more money than heart.
Let's be honest, at this point if you're going to plop down cash to go see Michael Bay's latest installment in the Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, you pretty much know what you're getting into. So, there is a good chance that the next bad guy in the next Transformers movie could very well be Unicron! Do you believe Bay's sentiments that he's finally finished?
The answer is revealed fairly early in The Last Knight: Yeager is on the run from law enforcement for harboring Transformers in a world where, now, they are all "illegal" - Autobots and Decepticons alike.
Todd VanDerWerff of Vox explained, "The Last Knight is a good reminder that in the eyes of director Michael Bay, the Transformers movies have always been at least one part disaster flick".
Transformers: The Last Knight Rotten Tomatoes score off to horrid start
Jamie, who lives in Saxon Gate, said: "Transformers the Movie was my first cinema experience back in 1986 so it was a childhood dream to work on such a big project and to meet actors such as Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel was fantastic". Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. You can't help but feel that Bay just wants the series to jump on the bandwagon to milk the cash cow.
For those who didn't know, the Bumblebee spinoff will serve as a prequel to the entire Transformers franchise, and will showcase Bumblebee's story on Earth before he was bought by Sam Witwicky. Then at 8PM, the Mark Wahlberg film moved up to 3,000 sites. Bay objectified Megan Fox and briefly Rosie Alice Huntington-Whiteley and got even creepier playing up his slow motion sexy shots of actress Nicola Peltz portraying the 17-year-old daughter of Mark Wahlberg's inventor Cade Yeager in Age of Extinction. But even that vague connection drawn by a Tranformers producer gives hope that the Bumblebee movie will have more emotional heft than the other Transformers films and be worth a talented actress like Steinfeld's time.
R-ratings mean big business these days, with Deadpool and Logan being two prime examples of what happens when you get it right.
"I loved working with Anthony". We definitely recommend that you see the movie for yourself!
