I love me some good old action-filled, giant robot bashing, planet crushing movies as much as anyone, but this a real yawner.
There was nothing new to see in the fight scenes with the bots. There are a bunch of characters that we are told we should care about, but don’t. The first hour of the movie cuts back and forth between too many plot lines, and never really settles down to tell a coherent story.
I know this is going to fall on deaf ears, but I wish Michael Bay would embrace the idea of telling smaller stories, just every now and then. Does every story have to trump the previous one in the threat to the planet Earth? I’m sure Bay would say, “Yes,” but for once couldn’t we have a small story? Just a few Transformers, or even one, with something that builds some character. Take the little orphan girl and her bff Transformer that was “all the family she ever had.” That could have made a great movie. Just a little orphan girl and a Transformer, bonding and having adventures. But all Michael Bay knows how to do is make overly contrived action epics. Such a shame. There are so many interesting stories that could be told that would enhance these action epics.
I just wish this franchise could transform into something worth watching.
About The Peetimes: I would recommend that you use the 2nd or 3rd Peetime. The first is short and has a fair bit of detail.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Transformers: The Last Knight. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including Knives Out, Frozen 2, and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
Creator and developer of the RunPee app. When something doesn’t work right in the app it’s pretty much his fault. 🙂
Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
