Movie Review | “Transformers: The Last Knight” – 2017

by Mica Wilhite

Transformers“Transformers: The Last Knight” is the fifth and last in­stallment of the Transformers movie franchise based on the toy line that debuted in 1984. The musical marketing taglines “Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye” and “Robots in Disguise” date back to the 1980s and are still used today.

On the upside, the $270 mil­lion dollar film boasts some of the most advanced special ef­fects seen in twenty-first cen­tury movies. Possibly on down­side, though, “Transformers” is yet another film that relies on the legendary King Arthur and The Knights of the Roundtable for its storyline.

Transformer fans will want to make sure they program time in their summer sched­ule to see the film because Mi­chael Bay, director of each of the Transformer films since 2007, has announced this is his last Transformer project. Mark Wahlberg, who plays Cade Yea­ger and helped the Autobots during “Age of Extinction,” and Sir Anthony Hopkins, who plays historian Sir Edmund Burto, have also let it be known they will not be returning to the franchise.

A fresh new star, however, has created some positive movie buzz for Transformers. Isabela Moner plays tomboy Izabella in this film and makes the story exciting for both boys and girls alike. Middle school audience members might recognize her from Nickelodean’s television series “100 Things to Do Before High School.” The 15-year old actress made her Broadway de­but five years ago in “Evita” and can also boast of being accept­ed to college this past January.

“Transformers: The Last Knight” (109 minutes) is show­ing at the Marshall Cinema with a PG-13 rating for sci-fi vi­olence and language. Call (903) 935-5662 or visit http://www.Jimple­ for a full list of show times. Then go ahead and plan to see it this holiday week if you are a diehard Transform­er fan.
