TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT REVIEWED

“Transformers: The Last Knight” is the first one of these films to feel like the cartoon. Bringing an insane degree of world-building while willing to go cosmic, Michael Bay seems like he finally has a grasp on this concept. There’s goofy things like letting Stanley Tucci play Merlin or having talking robots influence Western Civilization. But, is it more annoying than watching a never-ending action demo reel (the first movie)? Is it more annoying than watching racially offensive robots (2), Patrick Dempsey try to act like a Trump kid (3) or whatever the hell that last movie was meant to be outside of introducing Dinobots.

The concept of a dying Cybertron smashing into Earth is pretty intriguing. But, then there’s things like Optimus Prime being turned evil and learning what has happened to all of the Witwicky heroes. It moves the films past a Shia world, but Anthony Hopkins doesn’t bring the same friendliness to the material. At times, he feels like Peter Ustinov in “Logan’s Run”. This kind of film makes me wholeheartedly welcome to the impending Hasbro shared universe. Make toy movies goofy again.
