Underrated. Ignore the hate!
21 June 2017 | by oshawott-11239See all my reviews

I have been seeing so much hate on this movie and decided to just put out my own personal opinion. I won't be spoiling the story, don't worry.

This film, compared the others, is quite different. Watching this didn't but also did feel like a Bay movie. Your usual explosions and cheesy humor. But this, this wasn't different in a BAD way. This one actually had a GOOD story. Nothing being spoiled, again, but it isn't a bad one like in the past. The robots actually transform and get a ton more screen time, coupled with a lot of action. The jokes actually got a laugh out of me and the audience as well, unless it's just that we have an odd sense of humor. They cut down on screen time, although it does feel a little long, and I do feel some scenes could have been cut, but that's okay. Although I'll admit the movie is a bit too fast paced for me, it was good, and fun to see. Robot action eye candy as usual.

Most complain about the film being messy and the story! Again, the story is much better than the previous ones. You can go into a theater and expect a better one than the previous films.

So although The Last Knight was not my favorite, it's a good movie and recommend it. Don't have way too high expectations though. Personally, as a longtime fan of Transformers, I really like the movies.

So, 8/10 from me. I watched this in IMAX 3D, so if you want exactly what I had experienced, then watch it that way. I think this movie has gathered too much hate as deserves better. Food for thought: Don't base your opinion off of other opinions, especially at Rotten Tomatoes. I tell you this only because I watched a review that was mostly hate to this and ruined my excitement, but truly enjoyed it. Please form your own opinion, and don't hate on it for ridiculous reasons (like the not accurate to original source...new is good! Redoing something in the past isn't fun unless it's a remake, and the movie franchise isn't what that is; it's Bay's own take on the Transformers.
