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.
Autobots must escape sight from a bounty hunter who has taken control of the human serendipity: Unexpectedly, Optimus Prime and his remaining gang turn to a mechanic, his daughter, and her back street racing boyfriend for help.
Optimus Prime finds his dead home planet, Cybertron, in which he comes to find he was responsible for its destruction. He finds a way to bring Cybertron back to life, but in order to do so, Optimus needs to find an artifact that is on Earth.
Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) was shot on a variety of formats, including 16mm film cameras, RED cameras, Michael Bay's custom 8K camera called 'the Bayhem,' GoPros, and the majority being ARRI Alexa IMAX cameras on a 3D rig. What results is aspect ratios that switch not just between sequences, but between individual shots in IMAX 1.90:1, Univisium 2.00:1, and 2.28:1. Unfortunately, this happened to be one of the biggest complaints with the film among audiences, as they found the constant back-and-forth framing to be quite jarring. See more »
Most of the streets used in the Oxford driving scenes (particularly around the Bodleian and Radcliffe) are pedestrianised. See more »

This movie is like a big story put up in one paragraph with no punctuation marks whatsoever. Usually Transformers builds up a simple story that explodes into one big final battle, filled with special effects and epic fights between autobots and decepticons; pretty entertaining to watch, especially if you're into big explosions- action-robots-movies and usually it works. "The last knight" is different from the beginning, it introduces way more story lines than it should, it tries to make a suspenseful plot with so many resources it just drags into a story that's full of holes and patches that it seems you're watching a lot of trailers from different movies with no connection between each other.
The movie forces a lot of secondary roles (between the old and new characters) that it becomes boring and confusing at the same time. The main story becomes clear in the last quarter of the movie, just in time for the final battle by this point you're in fully overdrive mode trying to catch up with everything that's happened that it's barely enjoyable.
Personally I think that the worst part is the lack of continuity, they jump from one scene to another in less than 30 seconds. This "dynamicity" makes it impossible to follow the main plot or even one story line. There are so many details and jumps between stories that it exhausting trying to connect the dots. I don't recommend it at all, not worth the money or time. Maybe if you're really curious or a big fan into the saga you may find it entertaining at some point, my only suggestion: lower your expectations, cause this is, by far, the worst Transformers movie.
