Transformers: The Last Knight (12A)

Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.

The critical consensus

It’s robots battling King Arthur in director Michael Bay’s fifth go round as director of the gigantic toy-commercial franchise. What could possibly go wrong?

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 21/06/2017

By now you know exactly what to expect from a Transformers film: undeniably epic action spectacle at the cost of character, logic or genuine drama. Predictably formulaic.

**(*)(*)(*)Matt Maytum, Total Film, 21/06/2017

Bay’s genuine determination to give you a good time still doesn’t result in fun. Overlong, overstuffed and soulless, for fans who grew up with Optimus and Co, The Last Knight will sting like a bee.

**(*)(*)(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 21/06/2017

With so many sharper, funnier, warmer summer movies around, surely we must be done with Bay's robo-racket by now.

**(*)(*)(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 21/06/2017

The holy grail for Bay is surely to keep on going with the Transformers movies until he finally comes up with one that makes a modicum of sense.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 21/06/2017

The two banter and bicker their way to romance but all the humans play second fiddle to special effects and the threat of the end of the world as we know it. Same old, same old.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 23/06/2017

The impenetrable fifth film in the franchise proves that director Michael Bay has run out of ideas.
