3 / 5
First off, entertaining film however the antagonists felt underwhelming
New protagonists are a delight to see on screen and hope to see their careers flourish
I don’t agree with “paid” critics stating this is the best Transformers film ever. That bar isn’t too high to surpass and definitely has been lowered with every following previous installment. I do believe it is perhaps the second best following the original Transformers. Different strokes for different folks though. All in all, the original Transformers wasn’t absolutely spectacular but it was more entertaining to me than this one. I would give the original Michael Bay Transformers a 4 / 5 .
Looking forward to the sequels for this new trajectory of BumbleBee. Hoping for more compelling antagonists but if not, I’ll still enjoy watching the sequels (granted I’m not dead yet).
