Transformers The Last Knight movie review

Transformers The Last Knight is the usual fare of a quickly jumbled told tale of the humans in the story, updates about the planet and Transformers peppered with robot updates that evolves (or devolves) into the usual planet-saving slug-fest between good and bad forces.

Transformers toys, movies and more…

Warning, The Last Knight spoilers ensue, here and there.

Transformers The Last Knight saw Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro & Peter Cullen and the usual Transformer character voices return while we’re introduced to new characters played by Anthony Hopkins, 16-year-old Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, and Laura Haddock, who, upon first glance, looks a lot like Megan Fox.

It’s directed by Michael Bay, who has said that this is his last time helming a TF film, and it runs two and a half hours. I know, right?

The story starts out with a bunch of bullet points:

-The Transformers were here helping humanity back in the dark ages, during King Arthur’s reign, the World Wars, etc…

-Merlin (Stanley Tucci) was given the power over a group of Transformers with a staff that everyone wants.

-Cade Yeager (Wahlberg) is deemed the chosen one of Transformers lore, to defend the Earth.

THE ACCOUNTANT (2016) Movie Review

June 11, 2017

–The Accountant is like a good Doctor Who episode about the assassin, John Wick. No! Seriously. It’s a curious, complicated and smart film about a bookkeeper who also happens to be one hell of an assassin when he needs to be. But the film starts out a bit convoluted but as the story goes on, […]

WONDER WOMAN (2017) Review, Go See It

June 2, 2017

Wonder Woman, under Patty Jenkins‘ creative control, busts out from the Zack Snyder mold and delivers one hell of a story, from beginning to end.

POWER RANGERS (2017) Movie Review

April 1, 2017

The Power Rangers movie was surprisingly thoughtful, spending most of the first two acts delivering well-developed characters and history of the characters. I can only presume that after movies like Marvel properties, Pacific Rim, and other like films, they saw the way paved to take a swing at making this film. – Saban’s Power Rangers […]

GHOSTBUSTERS (2016) Movie Review

March 28, 2017

–Ghostbusters finally came to my pay movie channel where I could watch it and to be honest, it’s a perfect TV movie. Is this a sequel or a reboot? Oh, sorry, “reimagination?” It’s officially been referred to as a reboot but I’m not sure why they would go that route and not maybe ping off […]

MONEY MONSTER (2016) Movie Review

March 27, 2017

–Money Monster is a slightly above average crime thriller with an interesting but mild twist of a story. The film is directed by Jodie Foster and stars George Clooney as Lee Gates, a slightly extravagant television money analyst who is more about the ratings than some of the content he delivers. Imagine if you will, […]

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 Film Review

March 10, 2017

This is a movie review with some moderate story spoilers, but they are necessary for me to make some points. Keanu Reeves returns to a role that matches his classic film personality in John Wick: Chapter 2. And like the first one, this film is nothing but a fun, gun-porn kind of vengeance film, with […]

THE VISIT Review

February 7, 2017

The Visit, from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, can be a very tense film experience, but not necessarily for the reasons that you think! It’s a slow build that is worth the wait while you find yourself becoming vested in our characters throughout the film. – Before this film, M. Night Shyamalan has had some bit […]
