All that to say, the trailer is perfect. The movie comes out next but why bother when the trailer is here now:Subscribe now and get a FREE weekender bag and the GQ Style Guide.
What’s a slight relief is that these fraying titans of screen acting are off to one side. The movie is spinning into insanity every which way, and here are its guest stars just dutifully hitting their marks, allowing you to imagine stray conspiratorial looks between takes – as if to say, here we go again. They honestly don’t know the half of it. You hope they never do.
But as I said before, every movie is pretty these days. Movies need to be more than that if they want to succeed. It’s because of how groan-inducing those 45 minutes are that never amounts to being anything more than pretty, no matter how hard it tries.
The movie also gets a lift from as a British historian specializing in the Dark Ages. She joins Cade on his adventures, but as soon as those adventures intensify, “Transformers: The Last Knight” goes back to being a lot of noise and nonsense, with every line of dialogue sounding as if it’s coming out of a pinball machine.
