You know, I’m a little disappointed they didn’t go with say, “Last of the Knights. So far we’ve had Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction. It’s too bad they didn’t continue this cheesy X of Y trend. But hey, whatever.
As for this movie… I really really want to get excited for this movie. I do. I dig Transformers, but these movies just end up being so consistently awful that I find it hard to care about the new ones. I am probably just being some sort of “Not my Transformers” snob or something since they consistently do super well at the box office. They aren’t even particularly good “popcorn flicks” honestly.
So what do we see? Some knights, some Nazis, a giant planet thing eating the moon (Unicron?) And of course Evil Optimus Prime, who will likely be Nemesis Prime, or maybe even just Gavatron in disguise. They mentioned in Age of Extinction that Galvatron was designed in Optimus Prime’s image, even though he looks nothing like Prime aside from turning into a semi, not even the SAME semi, just A semi.
On a related note, what’s with this trend of heroes on heroes? We had X-men Apocalypse with characters like Storm and Angel fighting the heroes, we had Captain America: Civil War, we have the upcoming Fate of the Furious pitting Vin Diesel’s character against his “family”. I’m sure there are others, it seems to be the big gimmick lately in these sort of hero films.
