Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
We made it out to watch Transformers: The Last Knight yesterday and honestly it was pretty good, though it wasn’t one of the best of the Transformer films. When we got to the theater we were quite excited as we’re fans of Transformers so we knew it would at least be entertaining and to us, it was, though a few items stuck out to me and it made it hard to watch afterward.
Just as most big blockbuster films they tend to fall short in many areas due to all the hype and marketing, usually a heavily marketed movie tends to show that the movie will be very bad; Transformers: The Last Knight wasn’t bad but it did use some tricks from other movies.
Let’s give the breakdown. The acting was as it always has been, very well done by all of the cast. As for CGI/Effects, well… it’s Transformers that’s exactly where all the money went, and it was good. The story: well many places in the story they seem to have dropped the ball; it’s as if they cut a lot of scenes and forgot to patch the film or it was sloppy scripting though I’m not sure which. Cinematography, I’m quite blown away that the Transformers franchise would do such a thing but they did pull tricks (very noticeable) from “Suicide Squad”, and Guardians of the Galaxy”; when these scenes in the movie started to show I almost walked out of the theater.
Movies have certainly run out of using their own ideas and spend more time mimicking other films and honestly, it sickens me to see it, try some originality.
In short, Transformers: The Last Knight is an entertaining film.
