Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. 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.
Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) comes out of self-imposed exile, thought to be long dead, and is set on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora's Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments. Written by
The fighting style Donnie Yen's character uses against the NSA soldiers at the end is Wing Chun. Several moves Yen uses include a Lap Sau (Block/Deflect), Fak Sau (Knifehand), Tan Sau (Sky Palm Block), the Wing Chun Front Kick, and the signature Lin Wan Kuen (aka Chain Punch). Donnie Yen portrayed the legendary Wing Chun grand master, Ip Man (who was also Bruce Lee's teacher), in Ip Man (2008), Ip Man 2 (2010), Ip Man 3 (2015), and Ip Man 4 (2018). See more »

Complete waste of time - too much glorification of Xander Cage
There is no story build up in this movie - and the action scenes are unbelievable ~ aka too many bulls#it and impossible unrealistic sequence. The "glorification of Xander Cage" is way too arrogant to a point that your passion and interest for the character simply fades away.
After the movie, I have less respect for the character that Vin Diesel plays. If you are the type that likes to watch the action sequences; you might enjoy this.
