The end of the world is near, and 1,600 years after King Arthur, Lancelot, and Merlin, the last knight of the round table has been crowned, in the form of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), and Optimus Prime has gone rogue while trying to fix his home planet of Cybertron, with Quintessa.
I’m gonna rely on physics and mathematics to save the planet, not mysticism, fairies, and some hobgoblins.
This movie is definitely not as bad as a lot of people made it out to be. Action packed, and not a lot else, at times during Transformers fight scenes it feels like a video game.
A decent story, and the typical male/female flirt dynamic that you see in every movie these days, between Cade and Viviane (Laura Haddock).
Like all these series’, they introduce the really annoying character, this time in the form of Cogman (Jim Carter), who is equally funny and annoying, and a butler to Sir Edmund Burton (Anthony Hopkins). Meanwhile, Izabella (Isabela Moner) and Sqweeks are an interesting add.
You’re small, and you are ugly. No one’s gonna see you coming. — Story of my life.
Other big names showing up in this movie, in person or in voice, are Steve Buscemi, John Goodman, Stanley Tucci, Tony Hale, Josh Duhamel, and John Turturro.
I do find it a bit funny that they give some background to Bumblebee in this movie, as they prepare for his solo movie with Hailee Steinfeld, at the end of this year.
This movie is solid for an action movie, getting a 7 out of 10.
