Can someone teach Michael Bay how to edit ***** Possible Spoilers *****

Overall, a great popcorn movie. I only have two complaints besides all of the plot holes that would take too long to go into. First, the editing in this movie was terrible. Scenes were cut too short, therefore there was a lot of scene jumping before you had a chance to digest what was just said. The pacing was way too fast. Bay apparently wanted to get a 4 hour movie into 149 minutes. Now I've always liked how Bay incorporates history and legends into the Transformers movies, but please slow it down. Maybe this is his last installment, and he had a lot to cram down our throats. Second, the whole Izabella story line was a waste of time and unnecessary. I'll let you be the judge. All I gotta say that if that was my teenage daughter that Bay tarted up for this role, he and I would have a major problem. All the junkyard scenes including the baby Dinobots should have been left on the cutting room floor. Maybe it would have helped the pacing for the remaining scenes. Now if the WWII scene with Bumble Bee was a precursor to his stand alone movie that's on the books, then I will be looking forward to that prequel spin off. Overall there were just too many scenes that could have used a little more explanation or just a few seconds added to help the rushed pacing. Not to mention the ludicrous Megatron negotiation scene that screamed Suicide Squad. Like I said earlier, one could go on and on about the plot. Again great popcorn movie, lots of action, and Bumble Bee kicked some butt. Give this movie a chance and then decide.

Bayhem: The Last Knight

Hard to define this movie. If you Mix sky diving and the roller coasters from the 6 Flags theme park, you get Transformers 5: The Last Knight. A visual bayhem experience of explosions, cars, cliche moments and women. Though compared to his previous style and movies, there was less objectification of women. If that is something that triggers you, that's one change that was noticeable in this film. The Female lead had a purpose and a role in fighting the ongoing onslaught that had evolved in the transformers cinematic universe. Though movie in itself had an impressive mythology aspect to it. It did bring about loop holes and possible plot holes that need to be explained. If you are watching a transformers film for the Oscar worthy story then you are not watching it properly. This is a franchise where you shut your brain off from the world and enjoy the adrenaline fueled rush. Acting: 5/10 (I don't know what it is, but acting felt dull. Mark Wahlberg was good and less annoying in this film but still felt it could have been played by anyone else. Anthony Hopkins was brilliant, played the mysterious British character with finesse and added a good comedy aspect to it. Laura Haddock the female lead was OK as well, again she could have been replaced by anyone but on the plus side her character had an actual role rather than being a Michael Bay eye candy. The side characters didn't hit the mark. For some reason they felt off pace with the film though they had their moments, they just didn't seem to click) Action: 10/10 (like all Michael Bay films he can't go wrong with the action. Giving him the nick name of bayhem he certainly delivers on this. The aesthetic set pieces mixed with the unorthodox cinematography and CGI was a visual masterpiece. The most explosive transformers to date) Sound: 10/10 (Michael bay is a vivid supporter of the Dolby Atmos cinematic sound. This film was specifically made in the sound mix of Dolby Atmos. The helicopters flying from left to right of cinema, fighter jets flying in and out around the 360 degrees speakers, explosions coming from all angles of the cinema speakers leaves u in awe. This is a film where you must go out of your way to pay that extra dollar to watch it in a Dolby Atmos) Story: 7/10 (Michael bay with a story? There have been critics of bay saying there is no story in this franchise or this film. I beg to differ. This movie like the second film and little of the third, expanded the transformers universe. Though there might be conflicts in plot because of the new history of earth, mythology being added to the story and various scientific inaccuracies. It served quiet well and leaves the viewer eager to know more. With new transformers being added to the film the introduction to them was spot on) Feels/nostalgia: 10/10 (This film had many heart throbbing tear jerking moments. The human emotion that Michael bay that gives to the transformers is brilliant. Though cliche at times, it is the type of film where you can accept a cliche and enjoy it rather then roll your eyes back. For the fans of the franchise there is lots of nostalgia to be experienced) Over all score of 8.4/10 #UzziReviews

Those Professional Movie Critics.....

I'm not defending "Transformers: The Last Knight". I think Michael Bay needs to put story first over special effects - just once. However, the majority of movie critics are losers. I'm talking about the ones who criticize filmmakers for a living. They're a cancer to all artists. They're a cancer to the film industry. And they're a cancer to future films being made. Someone has to draw the line. You have weirdo critics at the AV Club who pillage films like a sport. Let me be clear: NONE OF THESE CRITICS HAVE EVER WRITTEN, DIRECTED, or PRODUCED A FILM IN THEIR ENTIRE LIVES. They're simply losers who wish they could be filmmakers. Again, not defending "Transformers: The Last Knight". I'm just saying these critics, who maliciously attack films the public see, think they're better than us. They're usually ugly-looking, talent-less, mum-chucks who are always maxing out of their credit cards. Why? Because you can't make a living watching movies and bashing them. If you think I'm wrong, what mother tells their children to someday grow up and become a movie critic, right? THEY'RE TOTAL AND COMPLETE LOSERS. IGNORE THEM. See the films yourselves and don't be swayed by this cabal of very mean-spirited critics who are in essence just insecure bullies who wish they could direct. They will die and their gravestones will read: "I was a movie critic. And I'm really better than all the directors in the world. I really am. Please remember me. Please."

Great Movie among cynical reviews!

PLEASE READ FOR TRUE REVIEW We've all been waiting for it and here it is in all it's glory, TRANSFORMERS THE LAST KNIGHT. First off i would like to point out that some of these critics like to pull apart every detail and show it as not close to perfect but newsflash Michael Bay does not make Transformer movies to be critically acclaimed and they are not put up for Academy Award winning for story. And from what you've been hearing from all the YouTube channels and big brand reviews that say TF5 is a downright horrid and awful movie you may be thinking that you might not want to spend your hard earned money to see the film and here is where I am going to tell you different. Yes, some might think I'm crazy but think about it, the YouTube channel reviews and critics from newspapers and what not only represent a small number of people who dislike the movies and go into the film before seeing it thinking it will be bad because of Michael Bay. THEY ARE DEAD WRONG!! This movie is exciting and shows great honor among characters with an interesting plot where in small places got me confused but mostly I was able to figure it out. The visual arts of the transformers and the voice acting was spot on as always and contributed to the IMAX experience making you feel there and kept you right in the action without a dull moment but good breaks to keep from nonstop action which would eventually bore the viewer. The acting was spot on and had great one liners at times which didn't feel forced contrary to what some will say. Although there are a few minor plot holes and misrepresentations from the trailers(Izabella having a large roll) the film kept me excited and interested with a smile on my face the whole time.

"Transformers: The Last Knight," the dreaded fifth movie in the Transformers series is supposedly the last to be directed by Michael Bay and the last to star Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg plays his character Cade from the previous one. The "attempt" at a plot for this movie goes something like this: Cade comes into possession of an ancient Transformers artifact called the Talisman and he is the "chosen one" to carry out a "quest" for the transformers, while this chick named Vivian has to acquire Merlin's "staff" because for some reason she is the "only one who can wield it" and Optimus Prime heads to Cybertron to find out "where he and the transformers came from and what they're doing on earth." THAT'S this movie's plot. Lol this movie thinks it has a plot. This movie is completely incapable of telling a cohesive story. There is no beginning, middle, or end. It throws plot threads at you and expects you to roll with them. The most illogical plot devices occur in this movie. NOTHING makes any sense. It is so convoluted that the movie thinks the audience are idiots. How many times was I reminded of what the plot was throughout the entirety of this atrocity? I counted at least 32. Nothing of importance happens. Nothing is interesting, nothing is entertaining. The characters are so thinly written and poorly developed I didn't care who lived and who died. At this point in the series, I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE DAMN HUMANS! Just give us a movie about Transformers, not about humans. None of them are likable AT ALL. Everything involving the military, the government, Anthony Hopkins, it's all pointless! The movie spends so much time and energy on all the stuff everyone complains about with these movies that none of it comes across as not appealing, but rather annoying. It's an insult to our intelligence. The action scenes are the same lazy action scenes the other four Transformers movies feature. It's stuff that appeals only to teenagers who do not know how a movie is crafted. Teenagers like action and explosions and no talking, story, characters, or emotion. This movie appeals to those teenagers. There I said it again. Watching stuff just blow up and blow up and blow up and blow up and blow up and blow up continuously for two and half hours is extremely boring, especially since it's the only thing that has happened for five Transformers movies in a row. There is no entertainment value to be had just watching stuff blow up for a bloated and overlong runtime. And yes, the runtime is too long, YET AGAIN. Luckily, it is shorter than the fourth one which was a very drab and dreary two hours and forty-five minutes. This is about fifteen minutes shorter, but it easily could have been an hour shorter. Nothing content wise justifies the runtime of this monstrosity. It's still overstuffed, overlong, dreary, boring, and exhausting, just like the previous three. I'll give the first one a pass since I actually enjoy the first one. This has all the Bay-isms in it. The typical stereotypes, the typical humor, and the typical dialogue, all of which is stupid, offensive, and insulting. S many characters are made fun of in this movie for being different or having different accents you thoroughly understand why NOBDOY LIKES MICHAEL BAY. He is racist, sexist, and doesn't care about the audience. He cares only about himself and no one else. It shows. The two girls in this movie, in typical Michael Bay fashion, are all hotted out. The young girl is like 14. In what world is this right? Her tits just hang out the entire movie. The other chick just looks like a porn star. That's what this series has come down to folks, strippers and porn stars! Optimus Prime is literally in the movie for ten minutes to just say his name three times so that we don't forget about him and who he is and completely forget that this movie gives him the most sudden shift in character motivation I have ever seen, more sudden than Batman in Batman V Superman. If you came to see him wreck house, he is a total waste in this movie. Quite frankly, none of the Transformers really don anything in this movie. They all just kind of hang out and chill and insult each other with stereotypes. This is one of the worst of the year. I felt like I lost IQ points watching this movie. It is a loud, dumb, idiotic, incoherent, chaotic, soulless mess that appeals only to teenagers who like nothing but action and explosions and die hard fans of the series. It is worse than Age of Extinction. I'm just gonna give "Transformers: The Last Knight" an F-. Yes that is now officially a grade.
