'Transformers: The Last Knight' Slammed by Critics, Dubbed 'Frying Pan to the Brain'

The fifth installment of the sci-fi film franchise receives harsh reviews, sitting at 12 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

AceShowbiz - After ten years in the game and five movies, "Transformers" doesn't show any sign that it has learned from its past mistakes and got better. The latest installment, "Transformers: The Last Knight", is set to hit theaters on June 21 and most, if not all, reviews from critics don't give moviegoers any reasons to watch it.

The movie starring %cMark Wahlberg% currently sits at 12 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, with USA Today's Brian Truitt saying that the film "reaches new levels of badness." EW's Leah Greenblatt gave the movie a C-plus review and wrote in the headline, " 'Transformers: The Last Knight' is like a frying pan to the brain."

In his review titled " 'Transformers: The Last Knight' Might Make Humanity Just A Little Dumber", UPROXX's Mike Ryan wrote, "I have no proof 'Transformers: The Last Knight' will kill your brain cells, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that it does and I'd proceed with caution just in case. But I can say with absolute certainty that after watching, your head will hurt."

The Hollywood Reporter's Frank Scheck said, "It's all an overstuffed mess, but that was true of the previous entries as well," adding that based on the box office performances of the predecessors, "audiences obviously don't seem to mind."

Deadline's Pete Hammond described it "just as big, bloated and long (at 2 1/2 hours) as all that have come before it." Hammond, however, said that %cAnthony Hopkins% in the cast adds "dignity, credibility, wit and his regal presence to make this all tolerable."

Matt Singer of Screencrush wrote, "You would think that after five attempts, Michael Bay would eventually figure out how to make a coherent 'Transformers' movie. Apparently not." Eric Kohn of Indiewire described the movie as "an unabashed freewheeling mess of CGI explosions, fast-talking strategies and shiny metal monstrosities clashing in epic battles" and dubbed it "the most ridiculous Hollywood movie of the year."

The list of the bad reviews can go on and on, but it's still up to you to decide whether the film is worth your time and money.
