FarrierCollins’s review published on Letterboxd:
When you make FIVE Transformers movies it's bloody obvious money is the only driving force, but how do you let Michael Bay direct ALL FIVE?????
The trailer for Travis Knight's upcoming Bumblebee was better than this whole movie all together in my opinion.
There were way too many cuts during the action scenes making it feel too frenetic for no purpose at all. The design of the Transformers themselves felt like there was too much going on, I wish the designs were simpler. The Decepticons were just a bunch of indistinguishable chunks of grey metal. 20% of this is people walking down hallways really fast and talking urgently.
The completionist in me wants to watch all the other movies in this franchise, but after this first one I'm already exhausted.
