Action Adventure Sci-Fi - Like previous four films in the series, this is a big, loud,
effects-heavy sci-fi action-adventure based on the giant robot
toy/cartoon series. Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, and John Turturro
return from previous films, joined by new cast members, but it's all
about the explosions and destruction, and thus the target audience is
the younger set, particularly males. Kids will also enjoy though
some action scenes may be too intense for the youngest of the lot,
and fairly frequent language is also of note to parents.

PROFANITY: 30 S-words; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Fights involving people and robots; falls; hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some tobacco. ACTION: Fights, battles, chases, explosions, destruction. COMEDY: Silly banter, wisecracks, and sight gags, sometimes mildly suggestive.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average Distilled to its essence, The Last Knight is an orgy of incoherence, a sensory assault that suffocates the viewer in a cavalcade of special effects incontinence. The production exists at the nexus of video games, movies, and amusement park rides and really doesn't deserve to be considered a "film.”
Roger EbertFull Review Poor From the very beginning, this is an incoherent mess. ... it's just not fun. More than any film Bay has made, "The Last Knight" is incoherent to the point of parody. Action scenes are poorly choreographed, dialogue is weaker than ever, and plot twists make no sense.
USA TodayFull Review Poor ...an exhausting marathon of complete nonsense. Even if you love alien robots punching each other while tossing out insipid one-liners, it's a painfully long two and a half hours where the biggest problem isn't a lack of plot but way too many of them.
NY PostFull Review Poor Blessedly the film's action sequences have, over the years, transformed for the better. The first film's CGI was so crude that many of the skirmishes resembled spinning Rubik's Cubes. Now when these buckets of bolts punch and kick, you can easily distinguish Megatron from Optimus Prime.
