Transformers - The Last Knight

Mark Wahlberg's future with the "Transformers" franchise will be determined by director Michael Bay. A number of subplots go nowhere (we still don't quite get why John Turturro needed to reprise his role as Seymour Simmons, a government official sequestered in Havana) and the whole King Arthur connection reaches the point of incredulity when the Transformers converge on Stonehenge. "Why they keep coming here".

Steve Persall of Tampa Bay Times said: "That's the only way to explain the feeling that Transformers: The Last Knight isn't almost as painful to sit through as Bay's four previous exploding toy boxes".

Technical premiere: "Transformers: The Last Knight" was shot with a 3D rig fitted with two Arri Alexa 65s to effectively create the stereoscopic footage for IMAX 3D instead of having to make adjustments in postproduction. In this version of the legend, the Transformers are behind Merlin's magic.

At about two and half hours, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT is a long, tiresome slog of disorienting, camera-spinning CGI with little actual entertainment.

Uber adds option to tip drivers as it heads in new direction
It's also allowing more drivers to designate the routes that they want to travel to keep them closer to a preferred destination. In early January, Uber accounted for 56.8 per cent of all rides in the city, while Lyft had 9.5 per cent.

While there's an obvious downward trend in interest in the "Transformers" franchise in the states, it continues to make more money overseas. When some viewers deemed the Autobot Jazz as bordering the line of racial insensitivity, he gave us Skids and Mudflap in Revenge of the Fallen. Cade and Bumblebee rescue a girl named Izabella (Isabela Moner), who is a robot mechanic on her own since her parents died. Bunton also needs Oxford professor Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock) in order to find Merlin's staff that will stop the incoming Cybertron from destroying Earth. She then tells him that she can teach him how to control it.

One of the best characters this time around is Downton Abby's Jim Carter as a steampunk-esque version of C-3PO named Cogman.

For the American screenwriters, Matt Holloway, Art Marcum and Ken Nolan, recruiting the likes of real-life knight Hopkins, 79, was a dream come true. There's no way that almost 2,000 years of direct Transformer involvement is going to have been missed by the entire population, but that's just being pedantic, I know. The film got average two stars. Is there a Transformers: The Last Knight after credits scene or not? One wonders how long the erstwhile Mr. Carson has been waiting to tell someone they've made his shit list.

In the past ten years, we've seen four other Transformers films, and they're insufferable for film fans, apart from, what I would argue, to be the more Spielbergian aspects found in the first film from 2007.
