Sex & Nudity

  • During the end credits, a man in a wheelchair grabs a woman, pulls her onto his lap and kisses her without her permission. When she is free from his grasp, she orders her troops to have him arrested.
  • A woman is seen dressing and her back and her Bra is visible for a brief moment.
  • A woman is shown in her underwear, her butt is shown, and she craws in bed with a man and snuggles with him in a sensual way. She says I love you. It is implied they had morning sex.
  • One other scene is quite sensual. They make seductive gestures to each other and the man makes a sexual comment about his back side.

Violence & Gore

  • Transformers cause very intense violence throughout
  • Lots of scenes with massive destruction
  • Many people are injured during Transformer attacks. Many people are also killed, and it is shown graphically.

  • 1 use of wanker. 1 full fucking awesome, 1 wtf, 1 in complete cluster fuck, 1 whispered what the fuck

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A robot character has his eye ripped out as he panics and screams. In the same scene he looses a second eye bye getting a bomb shoved on it. His head then explodes. It is not graphic however as he is a robot.
  • This is easily the darkest and most violent film in the "Transformers" franchise, even topping "The Last Knight".
