I haven’t decided whether I like “Transformers: The Last Knight” or despise it. I’m concerned that I can’t summon any feelings toward the movie. It’s one of those movies where you leave the theater and you wonder…what just happened during the last 2 1/2 hours?
This is the fifth installment of a franchise that should have stopped at installment number two. The first “Transformers” was great, but each new installment got progressively worse. The two main characters from the first two installments left the franchise, one after the second installment, the other after the third.
There was no cohesiveness from the third installment to the fourth. This is where Shia LaBeouf exits and Mark Wahlberg enters. But alas this is Hollywood and these movies do make money!
This fifth installment starts off giving a history lesson and ends up with earth fighting to survive being destroyed.
There is mayhem and chaos from start to finish. Non-stop action and great cinematography. The Transformers are always the coolest element of these movies. Anthony Hopkins lends his acting abilities to this installment. He is the brightest spot in the movie.
But alas…the plot is tissue paper thin!! No explanation or reason for the events that occur is given. Two hours and twenty nine minutes is way longer than this movie should have been.
Just think there are two more installments coming your way…They won’t be directed by Michael Bay.
This is a 1 1/2 Star Movie!
