Along with summer comes the most anticipated blockbuster hits. Whether Michael Bay’s latest movie fits the bill is definitely questionable.
Bay is famous for keeping you at the edge of your seat, keeping you awake and prolonging a series that should have ended awhile ago.
But the story of the Autobots seem to be his biggest project so far.
The fifth installment returns Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager with some of our favorite Autobots. Josh Duhamel as William Lennox , who had appeared in the first three movies, also made a surprising return.
Would Marky Mark’s witty jokes be enough to sky rocket this film to the top of the charts?
Of course, the series will never be as great as the first installment back in 2007, but even with the questionable plot of the story there are still some great qualities to the film.
Wise-cracking jokes, intense battle scenes, and a giant, three-headed, fire breathing, robot dragon are just a few of those qualities. Not to mention the fall and betrayal of Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots.
However, in order to make an epic hero movie nowadays, the galaxy needs a higher evil, again.
This time the film finds a way to claim there is a way for the Autobots to save their home planet which, yet again, involves the end of our world.
The film may repeat the same goal of the past four movies, have the same plot holes, and typical cheesy dad jokes, but at the end of the day it’s still a remembrance of our childhood.
Not to mention its giant robots fighting each other, and for some of us that’s enough.
Watching this installment may be a onetime deal, but at least you get to see your favorite transformer one last time before the series runs itself even more into the ground.
