Final Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer actually looks good!

It’s no secret the last few Transformers films haven’t been up to par, despite those films having earned bucket-loads of cash. Speaking personally, I don’t think this series of movies has been awesome since the original, BUT Paramount will continue to churn them out because of said bucket-loads of cash.

Now I’m a total Michael Bay fanboy, I love his stuff. I re-watched 13 HOURS IN BENGHAZI the other week and I totally dug it, maybe because it was based on a true story, so technically, Bay can’t have had that much creative control story-wise, but who knows?  The guy definitely knows how to shoot a film, but for some reason he often takes the Transformers movies too far over-the-top or they turn out plain stupid. And don’t get me started on the “Romeo and Juliet Law” idiocy in the last one. I also don’t understand why so many action films make a massive spectacle out of the third act. The recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies, which Bay also produced, are a case in point. In the original 1990 film, Splinter just kicked Shredder’s ass on a rooftop… and done. Perfect! I’m pretty sure the whole sequence was over in 10 minutes and didn’t use any special effects other than puppets.

Anyways, rant over; this trailer is the best so far and in all honesty, I’m looking forward to the finished film and hope—fingers crossed—that it’s a return to form. TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT opens June 22.

And yes, adding Antony Hopkins to the cast earns it extra points.

Darran loves watching movies, listening to movies and generally everything movies which is mainly the reason why he started and roped some friends in to help him.. Favorite Films: Star Wars, Lost in Translation, Grosse Point Blank, Shawshank Redemption and any Kevin Smith or Tarantino.
