TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT cover image Click to play video trailer
This latest installment is part of the action packed Transformers series that I love because of the captivating work of the transformers' team. Seeing it in IMAX is even more mind-blowing. As well as the great cinematography, this film has hyper-realistic imagery that makes it ten times better.

This film has many great things in it, but a big problem I have with it is that it has too many things happening. By that, I mean there are new characters, lots of transformers, lots of different storylines and multiple things happening at the same time. These are all great, but there is a limit to how many things can be in a movie. This film isn't quite over the top, but close.

Some of the new characters include Izabella (Isabela Moner), a young girl who is interested in transformers and quite skilled with machinery, Vivian (Laura Haddock) an teacher from England who has a large role in saving the world. Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) is also in this film as a returning character. He was in the fourth movie, Age of Extinction.

This film has an interesting storyline and is fun and cool. An interesting name twist occurs when a main character, Optimus Prime becomes Nemisis Prime when he is evil. Nemesis Prime is the leader of the auto-bots, a good group of transformers. The strategy of turning a good guy bad is a great strategy to attract viewers of the film.

This movie does a cool, sneak-peek into history. It talks about medieval times and the knights of the round table. That is a primary plot which explains why this movie is called The Last Knight. It is cool to incorporate history into the film as it adds a little extra something to it. For example, in the first film, there is a cool kind of conspiracy part which I won't describe because it would be a spoiler. It is well acted and well executed with beautiful special effects and nearly non-stop action. You don't really have a chance to reflect on what or why this crazy and confusing story bounces around from one country to another, landing deep in the ocean and then suddenly reappearing at Stonehenge, England. Even though it's hard to know who is shooting at whom or for what reason, somehow it's still enjoyable to watch and even gripping at times.

Overall, this is a great film. It is cool, fun and has a lot to it, even if it may be a little too much. I recommend this film for ages 9 to 18. There are some adult jokes and violence, but they are not too bad. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

What an action packed and thrilling movie Transformers: The Last Knight is! It includes many sentimental, comedic and energetic scenes that had me at the edge of my seat. The animation and computer technology are amazing and so satisfying to watch. Teenagers and adults will definitely want to buy this DVD to re-watch it over and over again.

The Autobots, Decepticons and humans are all at war once again. Optimus Prime is still gone - off on a venture to meet his creator. The essentials for saving the future is engulfed within the secrets of the past and the history of the original Transformers and their descendants on Earth. It is up to the alliance of the inventor and Transformers protector, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), an Oxford professor, Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock) and the Autobots to save the world. Join them on their epic and intriguing fight!

I have always enjoyed watching the Transformer movies ever since I was a adolescent and I was not disappointed in this movie. My favorite factor of the movie is the special effects. The computer technology and editing are tremendous and make the movie come to life. Another part that I really enjoyed is how the history of the Transformers and the historical events are introduced. Being a Transformers fan, I have always wondered about the history of these fun and fast fighting bots and it finally is revealed in this movie. One thing that upset me a little bit is that some scenes are all over the place. I found myself confused about who is who, and how some scenes relate to the overall story. Other than that, I really enjoyed this film.

The overall message of the film is to be united as one. Regardless of how many hardships there are in the world, you should look past the differences and join together to get past them. In the beginning, the humans try to destroy the remaining Autobots because they believe they are dangerous, but that is not the case! They are trying to protect the world and the human race. Eventually, the humans and the bots unite to defeat the evil creator that is trying to destroy Earth.

I encourage teenagers and adults to watch this entertaining and thrilling movie, along with all the Transformer fans. No age below thirteen should see this movie, since there is a fair amount of profanity. However, families with teens will definitely have an awesome time watching it.

I rate this film 4 out of 5 stars for its exhilarating action-packed scenes, awesome special effects, amazing cast, great voice-overs and enthusiasm. It is available now on DVD and Blu-ray so to check it out. I think you might enjoy this movie as much as I did!
