Consensus: Cacophonous, thinly plotted, and boasting state-of-the-art special effects, The Last Knight is pretty much what you'd expect from the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise.

Michael Bay has promised that this is the last Transformers movie he will direct, which is no small relief. It will not, alas, be the last Transformers movie.

A movie that's cut like the world's longest and most tedious trailer, pinballing from scene to scene and rarely spending more than a few seconds on any single shot.

It is being sympathetic to all of Bay's visual effects slaves (who probably didn't see sunlight for months) that this film gets the extra star - and I am being generous.

Regardless of our opinions, we all know what a Michael Bay film is. This one's his most Baysome.

I am not going to try to explain the story- after watching this movie I may never try to explain another story ever again.

Alternate Ending

Suffused with an overwhelming, choking feeling of pure boredom, shading into self-loathing.

I can barely summon a feeling about The Last Knight; if anything, I feel slightly worried about how little I hated it.

New Yorker

All the best moments in the movie-pure images, devoid of symbol and, for that matter, nearly empty of sense-go by too fast, are held too briefly, are developed too little.

Bay doesn't whip up many edge-of-the-seat moments. Maybe that's because it's difficult to generate real suspense when the series -- like this movie -- feels as if it never will end.

The first scenes were incredible, I think Bay has that visual eye that Ridley Scott has but that is where the comparisons end. For all the good action work, Bay… More

Poorly-stretched plot, bland characters, hot-garbage action and senseless direction: everything you'd expect from a Transformers film. The Last Knight… More

What a huge letdown, I know every Transformers film hasn't had great reviews from critics but I loved the previous 4 so bad reviews didn't put me off… More
