If you’ve read any of my reviews before, you’ll know that I don’t really give bad reviews. I always find something good in them, or I end up genuinely liking the movie. When it came to going to watch Transformers: The Last Knight, I can’t say I was ecstatic, but I was curious and hopeful…but that went away real quick.
Let me explain.
When I watched transformer the last knight full movie for this movie, I am sure I sounded like most people in America: “Another one? How many more are they going to make?” Nonetheless, I wanted to watch it and see how it was. After all, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (aka Pirates 5) turned out to be actually really good, in my opinion. So I walked in with an open mind and a hopeful heart. I liked the first couple of movies, and the rest I found entertaining, but this one just completely flopped for me. Too many things went wrong with it and I just can’t say many good things about it…
The Positive Side
First of all, let me start with the positive. The special effects are just superb! In every movie with special effects, at some point, you can see the fakeness, even if it’s a little. In this movie, you cannot tell where it’s real or not. The robots and explosions look incredible! I really loved that about this movie (and that’s what Michael Bay is all about, no?) and have to really give it two thumbs up for this.
Also, there’s this tiny little butler who’s an autobot and he’s crazy and hysterically funny. I said it’s like a robot on crack.
Sir Anthony Hopkins. How can you go bad with him? He’s awesome in anything and everything he does. His funny parts were actully funny and I loved it when he flipped some cops off.
Oh, and I absolutely and completely loved the fact that a big part of it was shot in London. I reminisced of when I was there, and loved seeing those gorgeous streets again, the Big Ben, and the aerial shots of the city were amazing.
But that’s where my positive review ends.
Let’s start with what I liked the least: the sexualizing of Isabela Moner’s character, Izabella. In the movie she is supposed to be 14. Yet,…
