      Can terrific 3D save a horrific movie?

      The first Transformers film was a pleasure to watch, despite it being kind of dumb entertainment, it was a lot of fun. The sequels garnered more impressive box office as time went on, finally joining the billion dollar club with the 3rd film. But after the third movie, the domestic take sunk to new lows but worldwide, it was a huge hit, despite ever growing fan and critical backlash. The Last Knight was the first true underperforming Transformers film, with the worst take of the series, foreign and domestic. Was it really worthy of it's tepid response or is it a hidden gem? The film starts in King Arthur's time, with Transformers on Earth (dubbed the Knights of Iacon) being approached by Merlin to help King Arthur win a losing battle. They win, hand Merlin an alien staff, and warn of a dark force that will look for it. Moving to modern day, a year after the events of Age of Extinction, the TRF are after the remaining bots who are considered enemies of the majority of people, with Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) hiding a few in his junkyard. Meanwhile, Optimus Prime returns to Cybertron to meet his Creator and is brainwashed to find the alien staff to absorb Earth's power to restore power to Cybertron. But, back on Earth, mysterious horns start erupting from the Earth's crust, which the planet is a dormant bot named Unicron, who is regaining it's power, and is an enemy to Cybertron (this is already making me drop IQ points describing the film). The forces of fate converge, which created major mayhem and destruction for 2 hours and 35 minutes at various points around the world and on Cybertron. Overlong, over-plotted, rather poorly acted despite some talent amongst the cast, and extremely fast editing make this probably one of the worst Transformer films of them all, but then again, you can say that about all the films past number 1. It looks great, with some snazzy CGI, slick cinematography, and really good production values overall, but beyond being demo material for the picture and sound (more on that in a minute) it's a complete trash heap that deserves staying in the scrap yard to rust for all eternity. Luckily, the picture quality is better than rust, with the picture being sharp as a tack for the standard Bluray disc and the 3D version certainly the way to go, in my honest, humble opinion. The 3D (Largely shot on IMAX 3D cameras, with some scenes, and even shots being shot on film or standard digital equipment) retains the colors and sharpness of the picture, while adding some impressive depth and plenty of pop-out moments that will be on your demo pile, for at least a few years (Due note that the aspect ratio does change throughout). The Dolby Atmos sound is also demo worthy, with plenty of bass, punch and intensity to knock the house of the block, with normal dialogue scenes even sounding amazingly layered. The extras are also plentiful, though the lack of a commentary by Michael Bay is a disappointment (He hadn't recorded a commentary since Transformers 2 sadly), but the making-of documentaries are plentiful and are on it's own Bluray. Six featurette, amounting to over 90 minutes of behind the scenes look at the "Bay-hem", offering nice looks at behind the scenes footage, looking at locations, learning about the characters and CGI and more, but this package seems the least of all the films when it comes to extras. Still, there is plenty here to dig through for fans and film buffs alike. Overall, strong 3D, terrific PQ and AQ with generous extras and a digital copy is not enough to suffer 2 and a half hours of stupidity on a disc.

      I'm going against the grain here - Transformers5 was pretty much dragged over the coals by critics when released this summer, receiving the worst ratings of the entire series. Subsequently, the movie kinda flopped at the box office. Not surprising since the pop culture perception of the Transformers series is that they are mindless loud movies that bludgeon the audience into submission. While this may be true with Revenge of the Fallen, I personally have found that the series has gotten better as it has progressed. Well that sounds nuts right? How can part 5 better than part 1 or 2? Well, I guess you can call me a Transformers fan, and not just a casual one. Each subsequent sequel has delved deeper and deeper into classic Transformers mythology and lore. To the casual viewer, this may be a confusing hodge-podge of whacky sci-fi ideas that stopped making sense since the first movie, but to a fan it's been the journey we've wanted... and now we're about to meet Unicron! I'll just leave it at that... Unicron. Yeah fans, will know this is something to get excited about. Aside from all that, the movie features a return of Mark Whalberg's character from the previous sequel, with the remaining Autobots and Dinobots (needs more Grimlock!), and also now has Anthony Hopkins. Is he slumming it in this? Probably, but it's a lot of fun. The best part of this movie may be the fact that Michael Bay has actually found a way to reign in it.... he actually provides what can be considered by him.. subtlety. Now before we get ahead of ourselves, this simply means that Bay has given the action scenes a little more breathing room. While still featuring the best VFX Hollywood can provide, the action scenes feel bigger than ever before but also not as crammed in and maddeningly fast-paced. You actually get to sit back and behold and digest some really impressive epic grand scale sci fi visuals, particularly in the impressive climax. It's hard to describe, but Bay has managed to make this movie bigger and more epic, yet also easier for the viewer to take it all in. He has shown signs of maturing as a director, albeit while making a movie series based on toys that attack other toys lol. So a little perspective here is needed, I am not comparing him to Orson Welles, but I also feel he has made the Transformers series his own personal vision and has finally refined it with The Last Knight. Too bad it's also his last entry in the series.... So while I get why most people crapped all over this movie, I also feel it's underrated and for true Transformer fans is a pretty satisfying and very epic chapter about our favourite robots from outer space.

      Believe it or not, the transformers series hit a new low. With this film it seems like they just picked whatever they thought was cool and put it in the film. Example 1, according to this film, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, George Washington, Shia LaBeouf and many more are part of a secret organization to protect transformers. Example 2, they straight up ripped off a scene from the also bad, suicide squad. There are 2 good scenes. One that involves bumblebee in WWII, the other lasts 2 seconds. The movie is so long and boring that I wonder what drew Anthony Hopkins to it. Also if you are a transformers animated series fan, you’ll hate the changes that they kmade for the film. It seems like Michael Bay and the writers just picked things from the TV show, said “Who cares?” And did whatever they wanted to do. Cool special effects can’t protect this franchise anymore. It couldn’t since the third film. The characters are so shallow in this film that Mark Wahlberg’s character kept making fun of his female coarse because she was smart. We know she’s smart because there are characters reminding us every 10 minutes that she’s smart. But I guess Michael Bay never learned “show not tell.” This movie is a long and boring mess. And Optimus prime is barely in the movie so if you’re thinking of watching it for that then don’t. But I guess the Video and Audio are near perfect. Doesn’t warrant a purchase unless you really like it though.

      I'm very much a fan of the original animated film and I'm still waiting for an "ending" movie that can do it justice. Sure, the original was to sell toys, and apparently they ripped apart your childhood in the start of the movie (so they could hopefully sell more new toys) - but you know - I still remember it. It shocked us to the core as kids and that's probably why I still think it's amazing. Now, I know this movie isn't the ending of the series (*wheu*), but I hope they make something better than this - it could have been so much more but... so many... weird... acting, dialogue etc. choices. So many things just felt wrong or out of place and really didn't feel like they even fit in the new modern take on the story. Which is just... odd. I bought this fully knowing what it was an I was still able to enjoy it to an extent. If you're not a big fan - rent it maybe (if you could find it to rent anyway) or wait for it for "free" on some streaming service that you already subscribe to someday down the road. I'd only get the movie if you're in the same boat I am - hoping that somehow, someday... they can do a proper finish.

      I preordered the 4K Steelbook edition with great expectations. Thsi was the only one that I did not take my son to see in the theater...THANK GOD!!! I know that there are allot of folk who are very critical of Bay's vision when it came to the last 5 Transformers films, but I happen to find them all somewhat entertaining, and they all have helped tremendously when showcasing my HT system's ability to rock your world!! However, the Last Knight drained my spirit!! I actually stopped the film after an hour and decided to go jogging instead. This was the worst story line ever written, with senseless and obnoxious dialogue,new charters and a new team that add nothing to the story line, and reoccurring characters that should not have been revived!! With 1 star for the cool steelbook enclosure, visual, and sound effects, I really hope that this is the last installment from Director Micheal Bay!!!! Please do yourself a favor and wait to stream the movie or watch it free when available on Amazon Prime!!!

      This movie suffers from plenty of problems but has a few good moments. The overall plot was interesting but bad writing and direction kept it from reaching its potential. There are some cool 3D scenes and is one of the few movies not afraid to throw things at your face during action scenes. The battle at the climax of the movie in particular was incredible in 3D. It almost made up for the rest of the boring movie. The Last Knight is also about 30 minutes too long and it would have benefited from cutting many of the empty pointless scenes. The writing fails on many levels as it tries way too hard be edgy and funny which resulted in nothing more than annoyed eyerolls the whole time. All in all this is probably my least or 2nd least favorite Transformers movie. If you really like the Michael Bay Transformers movies then I would recommend this to you but if you are not a fan of them I would give this a hard pass. 3 out of 5 Stars.

      I've been a Transformers fan since I was a kid watching the original TV cartoons, had the animated movie on VHS, and own all of the newer movies. I don't go to the theaters anymore, but I was really looking forward to this blu ray release to add it to my collection. Mediocre reviews dampened my expectations and I almost didn't buy it, but I'm glad I did! The first time I watched it, I didn't think it was great, but for some reason, I kept popping it into my blu ray player, and I ended up watching it 5 times in a few weeks. It wasn't as good as the other movies, but the action was good. Each time I watched it, I enjoyed it more and more. I would still recommend this movie to Transformers fans. Even though I bought it primarily to complete my collection, I've watched this one more times than Age of Extinction. Below, I 'm saying I would recommend this to a friend, but in all honesty, it would matter which friend. I would recommend this to the type of person who is a fan of giant fighting robots (Transformers, Pacific Rim), but maybe not to someone who's looking for Oscar winning performances

      Great Steelbook and a Fun Action Movie

      First of all, the Best Buy exclusive Steelbook for this movie looks really nice! It has a glossy finish and the artwork they picked looks great! I am happy to see steelbook artwork that's actually good and, in this case, better than the standard blu ray cover art. As for Michael Bay's movie itself, I personally really enjoyed it. I know many people like to speak negatively about the Transformers movies and these films may not be for everyone, but I personally have enjoyed them over the years. The Last Knight is no exception. If you like the previous movies, you know what you are getting and chances are you will like this one. The action scenes and visual effects are top notch and easy to follow, the detail on the Transformers is stunning, the HD video and audio quality are pretty much at a reference quality level, and the soundtrack by Steve Jablonsky is epic as always. If you enjoy a fun action movie and you do not go into it trying to nitpick or be overly critical/serious, you might enjoy this film. Overall, if you enjoy this film, then this steelbook and just the blu ray alone come highly recommended.
