Very very boring. Moronic use of cgi
Verified purchase
Let's face it, none of the transformers movies (the modern day live action ones) have ever been any good. This one more than most suffered from various problems. Horrible camera work (silly slow motion shots, camera on the floor most the time, etc) the CGI is ugly, it's too complicated to the point this might as well just be a computer animation movie rather than 99.9% CGI with a few added humans here and there. The robots are so complicated visually that it's often confusing who is who in fight scenes. All the characters just randomly spew 'cool sounding' one liners... All the time. To the point it feels like no one's having a conversation with anyone else throughout this. The story makes no sense and is hard to follow as a result. Oh and it feels like it's 15 hours long. All in all... It's vulgar ugly and boring filmmaking.

Aspect ratio changes almost every shot
Verified purchase
I'm mainly evaluating the 3D Blu-Ray, not the movie itself. I've bought all previous movies over the years for my son in 3D. This time the movie wasn't released on 3D Blu-Ray in the US, so I ordered it from the UK. It's all region coded so it will play on any US Blu Rau player. That's where the good news end. Someone, unfortunately, decided to have this transfer switch between aspect ratios on almost every single shot. The aspect ratio changes constantly. I find this incredibly irritating and am surprised there aren't more people complaining about this. Just to make sure this is understood; I am not speaking of an aspect ratio change of scenes that were shot in a larger format for IMAX as was done in some of the previous movies. In this transfer, the aspect ratio literally changes from shot to shot into all kinds of frame sizes.
PS: After some research, it appears the film was actually released in theaters with these aspect ratio switches. I'm not sure why a filmmaker would do something like this as it is incredibly distracting to watch.

A tired, disjointed movie & constant aspect ratio changes
Verified purchase
Decided to stream this version again as i couldn't remember much of it the first time round. I now know why i didn't remember much. The story is all over the place, no memorable scenes and jarring aspect ratio changes that gave me a headache. We all know Michael Bay has used a fast paced, camera edits in most of his movies, but usually set in the same aspect ratio. Some are 2.35:1 ratio resulting in a letterbox format (thick black strips top and bottom), or the new IMAX 1.90:1 ratio which tends to almost fill the screen. Usually a director sticks to one format, depending on how they want to shoot it, there are great examples where IMAX/35mm have been used to great effect. Christopher Nolan mastered the two together in most of his Batman movies. Long elements in 35mm widescreen for all the character driven areas, then full IMAX ratio for the epic scenes. This lends its self to the narrative as you know something big is about to happen when it goes full screen. Sadly Michael Bay uses multiple cameras, each using different aspect ratios to capture his movie. Along with his fast editing, he manages to combine more than 3 different ratios into one fast cut scene. Even when two characters are taking calmly, the black bars at the top and bottom bounce all over the place. Just look at the movie trailer, take note of the black bars and see how many times they change, this is throughout the movie. It makes the experience jarring, disjointed and hard to watch at times. The story bounces along as bad as the aspect changes for no real reason, not explaining anything. Characters are added, just for the sake of added popcorn effect. No idea why Anthony Hopkins said yes to this, whilst his character is certainly odd and entertaining, towards the end the director runs out of a reason for him to be in it, like most others, they are just extras. The original Transformers movie was game changing, action packed and humorous, a bold movie that no one had seen before. The problem is, the other movies have become more outlandish and questionable, you run out of steam with them. Not to mention this movie is nearly 3 hours long!!!!!! If you like the previous 15 Transformer movies, can't harm to give this a go! Just leave your body to stay up and watch it and take your mind off to bed for a nice calm sleep.

Utterly bonkers

Ok, so if you want be objective about it hen yes, this is a pretty awful film. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that it is just SO incredibly mental that it verges on so bad it’s good territory- mainly thanks to Anthony Hopkins who is having an incredibly good time chewing up the scenery with his demented robot companions and lines like “the secret history of Transformers” that he has to deliver completely deadpan. The thing I really can’t put to one side with these films though is how unnecessarily non child friendly they are though, like someone says s**t every 5 minutes, including the Transformers themselves, and every single one of the robots are in some way full of weirdly aggressive “attitude” which is awkwardly crude and also kind of lazy as all the different Transformers basically have the same persona, with some incredibly painful foreign accents thrown in the tell them apart. You certainly get your money’s worth though, it’s the best part of 3 hours long and basically non stop (I had to watch it in 3 sittings!).

Spectacular movie (little spoilers)
Verified purchase
This is an incredible and spectacular film. It is not the best Transformers film, but certainly among the best. I have no idea how they are managing to get all these images on the screen. The Transformer planet Cybertron is very beautiful, but even Earth looks beautiful, especially Namibia and Stonehenge, with Cybertron in the background, a giant spaceship hovering above Stonehenge, all kind of flying Transformers including a dragon Transformer and this combined with all kind of aircrafts from Earth and Anthony Hopkins walking up to Stonehenge. All this in one image....incredible !!! Michael Bay is probably the best action director in the business. He might not get Oscars for his films, but he does know how to please the audience. It is a pity, but this is the last Transformers film he will direct.
The opening scene in King Arthur's time is also very spectacular. There is even a clear hint to the first film. By the way, the title The last knight revers not to a transformer but to Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), who gets a talisman from a dying transformer. This talisman will eventualy transforms in...... Well you can guess it; what is the weapon of a knight?
Optimus Prime turns evil in this movie....He is under the spell of an evil Transformer queen, who looks great by the way. The remainder of the original 12 Transformer Knights from King Arthur's time want to punish Optimus for his evil deeds, but "The last knight" intervenes !
What's not to like... One thing: the constant shift between movie image in 2.40 en 1.90 format. I don't know why they do that. It is very unpleasant. I know the film was shot in Imax (1.90), why don't keep it in that format. Maybe a few scene where shot in 2.40, but in the movie theater the whole film was in Imax, then why is the 3D blu-ray not in Imax format all the time. It is something I just don't understand. Maybe someone can explain that to me ?
Anyway, if you want 2.5 hours of mindless fun. This is for you. If you want intelligent drama....look somewhere else.

Boring, disjointed, tries too hard.
Verified purchase
Some people are too easily pleased. Some of us are not simply content with cool CGI, we actually expect a decent story too. I was bored about half an hour in. Hopkins should be embarrassed for doing this movie. I love the Transformers and I could see the potential in the premise of the story, but it was not done well. This movie tries to be more epic than it is capable of, with a few idiotic jokes thrown in.

Two stars for the CGI artists. Otherwise, a sad shame. Previous movies were far better. In short, it tries too hard, is disjointed, and boring in places.

Maybe the worst
Verified purchase
I can’t really remember what happened to be honest. As usual there were lots of decepticons that were all grey and looked the same and loads of explosions. The parts that looked cool from the trailers were Optimus fighting Bumblebee and the giant multi-headed dragon. Neither of which played a large or interesting part. The headmaster transformer made me think he was going to combine into a bigger robot but that didn’t happen. Lots of missed opportunities with this film. Also, continuity within the film series is contradicted multiple times. Megatron is in the film too but barely does anything

Okay movie but very tired.
Verified purchase
The story is very tired and understandably overlong. The story did not have the pep of the first Transformers movie. The sound design is fantastic as is the visuals but that's about it. Mark Wahlberg in his role as Cade is very good. From a technical side I was very glad that the 3D version of the film was presented in full screen 16:9 frame which a lot of 3D movies aren't. The bonus disc has the various making of videos which sadly has Michael Bay going around and swearing at every opportunity he got, although it comes across as light hearted I don't think that it was professional.
