I'm glad I watched it on Prime for free, otherwise I would have been annoyed to have spent money to watch this convoluted mess. Predictable characters - -feisty, hot, Brittish chick with a cute accent, check -- Rugged American, "man's man" who is tough and gritty, yet will get said Brittish chick, check -- spunky tweener minority orphan, who plays a combo of sidekick and the future adopted "daughter to be" for our protagonist, check. All very formulaic. However, what was not formulaic was the convoluted plot mess that involved King Arthur and the round table, Merlin, and Stonehenge. Add to all that an over the top, CPU melting, CGI extravaganza where the film shots had so much going on, well it was hard to tell what was going on. Any bright spots? Well, the actors/actresses are pretty to look at, and do an OK acting job, although their characters are blah. There are some visuals that are nice, but the vast majority are way, way overdone. Some cool shots of Earth planes attacking the alien ship. That's about it. If you want loads of "actiony" CGI with a Transformers theme attached, don't care about the plot, and don't want to try to keep up with the story, then you may like it. However, most people would probably rather find something else to watch. Two stars because it helped me fall asleep two nights in a row.

Almost total garbage. Story is garbage. Plot is garbage. Lore is garbage. Annoying humans and their drama are garbage. The inappropriate jokes and coy, hip humor are garbage. Screwed up Transformer characters are garbage (Hot Rod is not French, Hound is not a soldier, and Crosshairs isn't even a real character). Quintessa being a "life goddess", not to mention being a single (female) entity is an insult to the intricate, politically complex Transformers lore. There is so much in that lore that could be drawn upon to write a coherent, dramatic story filled with poignant character conflict. Instead we got this trashboat.

The effects are pretty and the score is interesting. The ONLY reasons to watch this are Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron and the CGI effects. And that's only if you're a diehard Optimus fan who is secretly in love with Peter Cullen's voice. I hope Peter Cullen and Frank Welker got paid BANK for this dumpster fire. Optimus has like 5 minutes of screen time. The entire movie should be about HIM. HE should be the last knight, not freaking Cade whoever (no offense to Mark Wahlberg, who is a decent actor).

One of the worst movies I've seen in the past ten years, maybe twenty. I only wish I could give negative stars. I can't imagine how anyone could give this movie anything above over one star. I don't want to insult them so I will just stop right here. Some things are better left unsaid.

I have never written an online review before, or any review for that matter. I am struggling to find the words to express how bad this movie is. I honestly feel this type of movie making is detrimental to the human race. It is a waste of everything. I am not sure why I was compelled to take the time for this review, but I hope it will stop at least one person from watching this movie.

What did I just watch? A bunch of stuff flying around and blowing up. Unsurprisingly, good guys never get hurt. Was the story about Cade? Optimus? Couldn't even tell. What a waste of time. Horrible plot line, almost worse than the one before (2014). King Arthur, Merlin, etc was so overkill. By the end of the movie, earth should have been destroyed what with all the damage....but we'll never know bc no one showed us! Major disappointment was that Optimus was barely in the movie. Only upside was that we got to hear Bumblebee speak. They should have stopped making these movies after part one. Tired of these poorly done sequels.

Really bad acting, the story line doesn't come together. The plot is hard to follow and is horrible. There simply isn't any chemistry between the characters.

OMG... I don't even know where to begin... Continuity errors galore, and more dead-end story lines, than you can shake a stick at. Such a waste of Anthony Hopkins.

Imagine being a drunk amnesiac who is in the midst of a full blown seizure and has to sit down and watch their entire life condensed into 2 hours. It would be chaotic and impossible to understand. That’s this film. It’s truly terrible.

Finally, the public caught up with the nonsense of Transformer series (thus, the very low box office(. I was a big fan of the first film. But the subsequent sequels were horrible. I did not want to watch this but I did, since it was free, to confirm the wretched nature of this film. And yes, it is indeed horrific. So BAD!

If you're looking to test out your home audio system this is your movie. Pretty colors and boom boom sounds galore. Other than that we're talking one long vapid armed services commercial. Was interested in the Arthur angle but it went ridiculous (drunk Merlin is relevant?) in seconds. One additional star for Hopkins / Carter lending their voices. Oh the payday must have been epic for those two to join this $5 bin fodder production. Thankful it was a prime offering - going to watch a Scooby Doo movie now for better a plot and characters.
