Nick Casaletto: Transformers: The Last Knight (2.5/10)
By the obligatory third-act throwdown, we as an audience have been so nauseated and bored for hours that the final epic battle just feels more like work than enjoying an entertaining summer blockbuster. There are no stakes raised; it ends exactly as you would think, and there’s not one single surprise to be had. Transformers: The Last Knight is not a film- it’s 200 million dollars being thrown at the screen with oversaturated CGI that would make a 7-year old fall asleep.
Matt Marshall: Transformers: The Last Knight (1/10)
No film in 2017 has been more painful to watch than Bayformers 5 (Transformers: The Last Knight). I praise the original 2007 film, and Dark of the Moon isn’t bad either. After ten years you know what you’re getting into with these movies – idiotic humans, explosions, a bloated runtime and sex jokes galore. The Last Knight feels like a new low. Pretty hard to top after “Devastator Balls” and the offensive Mudflap and Skids. Somehow, some way, Bay has poured even more gasoline on this trash fire with an incoherent story and shoddy kitchen sink of visuals.
Mark Krawczyk: Transformers: The Last Knight (5/10)
There are a lot of things wrong with this film, but there are some entertaining moments too. I am not sure what people’s expectations were going into this film. It is not a great film by any means; it is bloated, runs too long and never stands in one place long enough to develop the ideas presented. THAT BEING Said, I enjoyed this sequel the most out of any of the other sequels.
I enjoyed the mythology they created with how long transformers have been here. I enjoyed the fact that this had old characters showing up. There are scenes here and there that were entertaining, specifically the scene where Anthony Hopkin’s character is telling our heroes on how the Transformers, humans, and earth are connected. There is a particular cameo that was not needed in this film as it was a character that I have found annoying since he showed up in the first Transformers. This is NOT the worst film of the year. There are plenty worse ones out there. If you are a fan of the sequels than you will enjoy this. If you have zero expectations, there are some things in here that have merit. If you expected to hate it going in, then you will doubly hate it coming out. I am not sure I would watch it ever again, but for the time I did watch it, I found more things to like than all the other sequels. Still, wait for rental, you can drink more while watching it
Average We Live Film Gradebook Score for Transformers: The Last Knight: 2.8/10
