If you’re a big fan of this series of features, then you will be pleased to learn that you’ll get exactly what you were hoping for from the fifth installment, Transformers: The Last Knight. Sadly, this particular reviewer isn’t an enthusiast. Instead, I found that despite the nonstop action and noise, the movie wasn’t particularly exciting. In fact, it had a really difficult time keeping my attention.

As the film begins, viewers are told that there is an ongoing battle between the leftover robots and the human organization known as T.R.F. (Transformers Reaction Force). These well-armed, technologically advanced soldiers are out to...
