Most everyone knows about my Optimus Prime crush, so anytime my main metal man is on the big screen I gotta go. 

What a disappointment...again. The last movie had transforming dinosaurs! How could they mess that up...but they did. It seemed like with The Last Knight, they decided to just string together lots of high quality action sequences and explosions (don't get me wrong, I LOVE action and explosions) and maybe the audience won't notice the lame-a$$ plot. Transformers and King Arthur? Really? And it is time to let Megan Fox go, Mr. Bay. Casting an adult and young adult version of her was a bit much.

The Last Knight was 2 hours and 29 minutes long...159 minutes...I was visually exhausted and bored during the big show down...and this was when my hard piece of Autobot kicked some serious Decepticon butt. O.P. (that's what I call him) didn't get a lot of screen time. A little at the beginning when the floating tentacle lady hypnotized him and then at the end when Bumble Bee's magical voice saved him... There were some kids in the audience and they laughed a lot. The humor in the first two movies was perfect. In The Last Knight all the jokes fell flat and were poorly timed.

Seeing the movie on the big screen will let you appreciate the special effects but catch a matinee. Wait for it to show up for free on Netflix where you can fast forward. I wasn't happy with the movie but my husband gave it 3.5 sheep because of all the action. I'm not as forgiving.

  1. I enjoyed the first two Transformers, but the third was a disappointment and this one, well I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD then I'll pick it up at my library. Thank's for the honest review!

  2. Yeah, after the first two, it lost its magic is the best way to watch this one. Thanks!
