    Everyone hated this moive and of course I do too. But I have one thing : Micheal bay doesn’t treat the females in the transformers series like regular human beings! Have you guys ever notice???

  2. I respect your opinion and I can’t really argue with anything you said about The Last Knight. With that said I actually enjoyed the movie, it could be cause I am a fan of The Transformers or that I have come not to expect to much from these movies. Out of the five live action Transformers movies,The Last Knight is one of the better movies in my opinion. Of course none of them can compare to the awesomeness of the 1986 animated Transformers The Movie.
    I will say one thing I don’t understand is why people in the audience always clap at the end of these movies. I have seen many movies in theaters and the only ones that I have seen people give applause to are these Michael Bay Transformers movies. Like I said I have enjoyed them for what they are, but I still don’t stand up and clap my head of to this movies.

      Even though I hated this film I’m not one to judge what you enjoy! We all have different tastes as moviegoers so if you find enjoyment in something then good for you! I wish I liked this film! lol it would’ve made going to the movies much more fun

    Could you even muster a Raskin-esque “Ha-HA!” at one of the jokes?

  4. “This fifth installment in the Transformers saga is aggressively bad, all the while having an ever-present cynical tone that mocks viewers for seeing the film.” Great line and a great review. My question is how do they keep making money, why do people keep going?? Any ideas out there in the blogosphere? My son is very keen on the transformer toys (hey who wouldn’t be they are cars that fricking transform into robots, what’s not to love??) and he saw the trailer for this and seemed interested, he particularly loves BumbleBee but I think he is too young at 7, because these films so far have been too loud and the humour as this reviewer points out, sexist/racist/pick your own ist. They lack the charm of the cartoons and I agree the first one is the best. And seriously who thought King Arthur was a good match for the transformers. Sir Anthony Hopkins, how could you sir, how could you??

    • Nick Kush says:

      Lol thanks so much! I guess international markets just the CGI in the film because nothing else stands out. As for Hopkins, I can’t really fault him because he’s been saying for years that he’s an “actor fot higher,” signalling that if you pay him he’ll do your movie lol. I give him credit though because he’s certainly not sleepwalking through the film and trying the best with what he has.

      • Yes he is a pro. Much like Caine he goes where the jobs are and fair play to him..

      • Nick Kush says:

        Absolutely! Normally I would frown upon this behavior from an established actor (De Niro, Willis, etc.) but he still puts in performances that clearly show that he’s working and doing his best rather than sleepwalking through the production.

    Well…I’m still going to see it, as I am still,a massive Transformers fan. So purely for nostalgic reasons I am going to check it out. But I’m already prepared for the worst, seeing the pretty much every negative review I have seen this movie gather for now 😊

    • Nick Kush says:

      Lol well if you love the movies than go for it! I’m never one to judge someone else’s tastes.

  6. Aaron R Moss says:

    “Aggressively bad” lol

  7. Hopefully, you can take solace in the fact that your review was very entertaining, even though the movie wasn’t. So, your time and money weren’t completely wasted.

    • Nick Kush says:

      Lol thanks for that! These are the tribulations that a critic must endure! I do it so you don’t have to!

  8. Patricia says:

    I kind of picked up on its suck-ocity from the trailer, but it’s still nice to read your thoughts. You’re a great writer. 🙂

  9. Dylan Langes says:

    The only way to stop this is for people to stop going to see it. It wasn’t even like you need to see it in the cinema. I saw it at an IMAX screening and yes it looked good but the editing was horrendous that it didn’t matter what camera they used.

    • Nick Kush says:

      Absolutely, but I fear this may not happen. I saw the film in a packed theater with people who even CLAPPED at the end of it.

    Thanks for the review. Guess, I’ll wait for DVD on this one. I don’t like wasting time and money on horrible films with no plot or it was difficult to understand just because they needed to make another movie. Thus, make money. It is insulting to me that movie studios underestimate movie-goers’ capacity to understand plot and continuity of a film. I expected more from Michael Bay besides all the action sequences.

  11. Man, I feel absolutely sorry for you. Of course, I have no plans whatsoever to see this abomination that’s somehow allowed to live. Let me ask you something: Did several moments from “The Last Knight” feel copied and pasted from any of the past films in the “Humans” series, but for some reason has the Transformers name slapped on to make a quick million or 200?

    • Nick Kush says:

      Lol yes. Optimus Prime is in the movie for at most 10 minutes and the other two hours and twenty minutes is full of incredibly terrible attempts at humor. All the while, the army is just kind of there and we have to learn about how the Transformers were hidden on Earth for the fifth straight movie lol.
