If you’re not staggered by the technique on display here – the stuff that sets Bay’s work miles above the Fast & Furiouses, X-Men: Apocalypses and Tom Cruise-chasing Mummies of this world – you’re not paying attention.
Neil Genzlinger The New York Times
The fifth Transformers movie, The Last Knight, is far from the worst in this continuing experiment in noisy nonsense based on Hasbro toys. That is thanks largely to two words: Anthony Hopkins.
Steve Persall Tampa Bay Times
It's the little pleasures in mediocre movies that mean a lot.
Gav Murphy IGN
The Last Knight is the loudest and most explosively dull installment yet.
Todd VanDerWerff Vox
There’s fun to be had in The Last Knight, if you can find it among the chaos — and if you can remember it after the fact.
Matt Donato We Got This Covered
Bay's latest Transformer title is a daunting behemoth of a film and you can feel every ounce of dead weight, as sins of the past are committed without any signs of stopping.
Alonso Duralde TheWrap
If you’re here for the director’s trademark chaos editing (where fights go from points A to D to Q), toxic masculinity (and female objectification), comedy scenes rendered tragic (and vice versa), and general full-volume confusion, you’ll get all those things in abundance.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
The final explosive showdown seems to be competing with Marvel movies for spectacle. But Marvel brings wit and fun. As far as those factors go, the Transformers franchise is in very short supply.
Rodrigo Perez The Playlist
The Last Knight is like a Red Bull-charged Bay yelling “I regret nothing!” as he jumps out of a plane backwards with no chute, detonating a megaton nuclear explosive while firing Uzis at his skydiving pals above him because hell, dude, that sounds like a wicked fond farewell. [
Jake Cole Slant Magazine
The sensory overload of Michael Bay's hyperkinetic cinema is such that it eradicates any actual sense of place.
