Newest Transformers movie out Wednesday - and Optimus Prime looks like a villain

25 June 2017

Mark Wahlberg has announced that The Last Knight will be his farewell to the Bay franchise.

The 46-year-old told TNP that he has "a lot of other things going on" and if he never sees "a harness and wires again in my life, I am okay with that".

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". It's also the worst of the series to date, which is saying something.

Shares of American Airlines rose more than five percent in pre-market trade after it disclosed Qatar's potential investment. Etihad Airways, out of Dubai, offers the World's Best First Class while Thai Airways boasts the World's Best Economy.

Before the first "Transformers" film was released in 2007, the highest grossing adaptation of a toyline was 1985's "The Care Bears Movie" with $22.9 million at the box office.

"It's fantastic and it's inspiring, you know, to just kind of drive down the street and see that people, you know, won't be told (how) to live their lives". -Transformers battle that opens the film, it is blessed to have Sir Anthony Hopkins back to light this edition up, adding dignity, credibility, wit and his regal presence to make this all tolerable.

But is this really the last we have seen of Bay, who has U-turned on quitting twice to make the fourth instalment Transformers: Age Of Extinction and TLK? The best touch, though, is Cogman (the voice of Jim Carter), Edmund's robotic butler, a sort of C-3PO with a temper (as a robot who aims a C-3PO joke at him finds out).

Hopkins knows the evil Megatron (Frank Welker) has plans to destroy Earth. This time, though, the humans are fighting with the robots, while Optimus Prime is nowhere to be found. Ye olde wizard offers some drunk history on the magic of his staff.

Let me start by saying that I've always had high hopes and a soft spot for this franchise, having been just the right age to have caught the back end of the original run of Transformers the 1st time round these films have nearly been a guilty pleasure.

Mark Whalberg is back as Cade and comes off as a discount old-man Logan level of grumpy towards those around him because of all of his inner angst. Our hero's love interest is Vivian Wembley (Laura Haddock), a British historian who favors spike heels and push-up bras in the grand Bay tradition of objectifying women.

South Korea tests missile with warning to North
The military said the missile, a Hyunmoo-2 with a range of up to 800 kilometers (nearly 500 miles), hit its target accurately. USA officials have said North Korea has test-fired another rocket.

But now, look at the breakdown of how much each of those four movies has made domestically versus internationally. The director hints that No. 5 may be his last go at the franchise. The idea of the Transformers as fugitives on the run could have been a darker and more serious take on the bots, but Bay goes all Bay inserting his brand of humor and stupid into the project. Some might argue that this is just a simple movie with cool explosions that's meant for kids.
