And yet, when given the opportunity to see a (free!) preview of Transformers: The Last Knight, I found I was unable to pass up the opportunity. Maybe it won’t be that bad! After all, Anthony Hopkins is in it! Maybe he can class the joint up a bit!
I won’t spoil it for you. I’ll just say that it was two and a half hours of whirling chaos, packed overfull of seemingly unrelated plot points and a needlessly complicated mythology which wasn’t even hinted at in previous installments.
You don’t have to take my word for it – but if you simply must see Transformers: The Last Knight for yourself, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
