Trans­form­ers: The Last Knight

The high-ac­tion ro­botic se­quel is worth a view­ing for its eye-pleas­ing cast alone


What’s the story? As the fifth in­stal­ment of the ro­bot-based ac­tion fran­chise, you’re ei­ther re­ally up-to-date with what hap­pened to Op­ti­mus Prime and the Au­to­bots or you have ab­so­lutely no idea what we’re talk­ing about. This flick sees Cade Yea­ger (Mark Wahlberg) pair up with an un­likely task­force and Au­to­bot Bum­ble­bee to dis­cover the se­cret behind why the gi­ant trans­form­ing alien robots keep re­turn­ing to Earth. Who’s in it? Mark’s back, obvs, but one of our girl crushes Laura Had­dock (Luther, Guardians Of The Gal­axy) also joins the cru­sade as Vi­vian Wem­b­ley, an Ox­ford English pro­fes­sor. Throw in An­thony Hop­kins, Stan­ley Tucci, Brit ac­tress Gemma Chan and Josh Duhamel and it’s an im­pres­sive (and ex­ceed­ingly at­trac­tive) cast. Why should I care? Even if you weren’t a fan of the first four films, you might be sur­prised by this one, which ex­plores the Trans­form­ers’ le­gacy in more depth. There’s still plenty of drama to be had, though, plus those in­sane, eye-pop­ping ac­tion se­quences. Not to men­tion Laura Had­dock. Out 22 June Ver­dict: ★ ★ ★ ★
