"For One World to Live, the Other Must Die"


My Take:

Humans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Now, it's up to the unlikely alliance of inventor Cade Yeager, Bumblebee, an English lord and an Oxford professor to save the world.

Whether you like Michael Bay or don’t like him there is no denying that he knows how to make an action film. I tend to like his work, probably because I am an action junkie that loves to see and hear stuff blow up, and few do it better than him. I was a teenager when the Transformers toys/animated TV series was all the rage among young kids in the eighties. I honestly never once watched the cartoon but I can recall the theme pretty well. When the first Transformers film hit theaters in 2008 I had little interest in taking the plunge and decided to wait and see what it offered on home video. As it turned out Transformers was a big hit which spawned two sequels. Each of the films revolves around a continuing/age old battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons from the distant planet of Cybertron. After their war decimated Cybertron their epic struggle came to Earth, where the Autobots joined forces with humans to combat the global threat.

Of the first four films the original remains my favorite as neither of the sequels added anything of significant value to the overall thematic rendering. Needless to say, when I heard about installment number five I didn’t hold out any hope that it would somehow breathe new life into the franchise. As alluded to earlier I am an action film junkie and can be pretty forgiving of minimalist storytelling especially when there’s plenty of high octane production value. Transformers: The Last Knight is largely contrived both in concept and execution, although as you would expect from Michael Bay, a few of the effects laden set pieces and stunt work are pretty cool. In most respects though the film offers a shoestring plot, hollow characters and predominantly repetitive action sequences that make its bloated 154 minute runtime interminable.

I generally like Mark Wahlberg, but there were times where I laughed out loud at his whiny, nasally, delivery. Anthony Hopkins is a quality actor, and listening to him stumble through some of his lines was at times a little painful. Words like campy, and mawkish, came to mind as I watched Wahlberg’s character interact with his teenaged companion, and Bumble Bee which only served to add another layer to the ineptly written script. The attempt at romance was equally abysmal. I won’t even go into Stanley Tucci’s ridiculous portrayal of Merlin in the film’s opening.

The action was exactly what you’d expect, but frankly nothing that we really haven’t seen from the earlier films, save for a few nips and tucks that were decent. The door was left wide open for number six. I don’t have any illusions that it will reinvent the series wheel. Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind if they turned things around as I would like to see something new from this franchise.



Replay Value:


Parental Guide:

The rating is for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language and brief innuendo.


AUDIO/VIDEO - By The Numbers:
REFERENCE = 92-100/EXCELLENT = 83-91/GOOD = 74-82/AVERAGE = 65-73/BELOW AVERAGE = under 65

**My audio/video ratings are based upon a comparative made against other high definition media/blu-ray disc.**


3D Presentation: 90
(Each rating is worth 4 points with a max of 5 per category)


  • Depth (Onscreen):
  • Dimension (Beyond the screen):
  • Realism:
  • Clarity/Detail:
  • Color Reproduction:



Dolby Atmos Rating: 94
(Each rating is worth 4 points with a max of 5 per category)


  • Level of immersion:
  • Soundstage integration:
  • Audio object placement:
  • Effectiveness of Atmos platform:
  • Entertainment factor:


Transformers: The Last Knight 3D comes to Blu-ray Disc from Paramount Home Entertainment featuring 1080p MVC encoded video and Dolby Atmos/TrueHD 7.1 sound that has an average bitrate of 5.6 Mbps.

Transformers: The Last Knight is one of those high definition presentations that looks as good in 3D as it does in 2D. Shot natively in 3D detail is well preserved as the video retains its high level of clarity with objects, people and backgrounds within the frame appearing delineated and sharp. I was impressed by quality of the three-dimensional imagery. The spacing of objects/ people in the foreground/background is lifelike which imparts a natural sense of scale as things of various shapes and sizes occupy the virtual world onscreen. I wasn’t drawn out of the film by odd looking proportions or hokey 3D for 3D’s sake. In fact, I would say that it was just the opposite.

The cinematography utilizes near field camera perspectives that enhance proportional correlation. There are a variety of sequences that utilize the 3D platform to reach beyond the borders of the screen and the effects are excellent. Contrast is spot on, blacks are inky with excellent dynamic range and colors are deeply saturated and beautifully vibrant. Comparing these elements to the 2D presentation I saw no difference. The rendering of detail and clarity is the same, and I didn’t observe any overt instances of crosstalk/ghosting.

The integrated IMAX segments shifting back and forth between 1.90:1, 2.00:1, and 2.39:1 aspects look great. In examining segments of each I didn’t notice any issues with fidelity and saw no perceivable difference in resolution. The aspect ratio shifts are done perpetually throughout the film, even during segments where it isn’t thematically beneficial. At times I found it to be a bit of a distraction but not to an egregious level. Overall Transformers: The Last Knight makes for a solid 3D experience that looked terrific on my big screen.

In listening to the Dolby Atmos surround mix I found it to be of the active variety that made steady use of the platform. Its use of audio objects placed above and at ear level is a mix atmospherics and discrete effects. This creates a tangible level of immersion that coincides with the onscreen events, enhancing the thematic content of the material. The Atmos track consistently utilizes the entire platform to create a realistic listening environment which at times is completely immersive. As the film’s events escalate the track follows suit, as the blend of music, explosions, falling debris, underwater submersion, and smaller object sounds rain down from above, placing you inside the action, with sounds rotating and revolving around the soundstage. I enjoyed the balance of atmosphere and integration of discrete object placement. It made the film a bit more tolerable as it provided an entertaining home theater experience.




2D Video Quality:

Transformers: The Last Knight comes to Blu-ray Disc from Paramount Home Entertainment featuring 1080p AVC encoded video that has an average bitrate of 27 Mbps and Dolby Atmos/TrueHD 7.1 sound that has an average bitrate of 5.6 Mbps.

This is a high-quality video presentation that seems a perfect match for the source material. Colors are deeply saturated with eye pleasing vitality and delineated depth. Images are resolute with appreciable sharpness, crisp detail and discerning subtle refinement. Certain scenes appeared better resolved than others although this appears related to the photography and not the encoding. Contrast is dynamically applied without being overpowering and blacks are respectably deep with discernible detail in low lighting and shadows. I didn’t see any signs of video related artifacts and thought that in general video quality was excellent. It should be noted that the 2D Blu-ray presentation includes the expanded IMAX rendering.

I had high expectations for this soundtrack and this audio presentation didn’t leave me wanting. I was treated to an impeccably detailed, powerfully dynamic, and demonstrative surround sound experience. Multi-layered sound effects are appropriately placed within the soundfield so that their purpose is definable yet never overstated. The mix makes effective and aggressive use of the surround channels to extend the soundstage and reproduce the spatial and discrete sounds of this demanding soundtrack. The front and rear sound fields are integrated with precision which enables a tight correlative blend during panning sequences. Dynamics are potent and impact felt with discerning articulation and resolute clarity. This is an engaging surround mix that utilizes the subwoofer to accentuate its already extended dynamic range. The quality of the bass is first rate as it is fills the room with clean, hard hitting, and deep resonating low frequency detail. Dialogue has excellent presence with clear, defining vocal character and noteworthy room penetration. Transformers: The Last Knight makes for an entertaining home theater experience on Blu-ray.

Bonus Features:
  • Disc 1: Transformers: The Last Knight 3D Blu-ray
    Disc 2: Transformers: The Last Knight Blu-ray
    Disc 3: Bonus Features Blu-ray
  • Merging Mythologies – Explore the secret TRANSFORMERS history
  • Climbing the Ranks - Military training
  • The Royal Treatment: Transformers in the UK
  • Motors and Magic
  • Alien Landscape: Cybertron
  • One More Giant Effin’ Movie


Final Thoughts:

Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth installment in the popular film franchise. Unfortunately, it fails to capture the freshness and engaging thrills of the original film, and feels boringly formulaic and overlong. On a positive note it looks and sounds great on Blu-ray in this 3D Combo Pack that sports excellent high definition video, room shaking lossless surround sound, including an excellent Dolby Atmos immersive mix, a solid 3D rendering and a middling supplemental package. As a film Transformers: The Last Knight is tough to recommend, but as a home theater experience it’s got plenty to offer.

Thanks Ralph and looking forward to checking this out. I've read elsewhere that all versions of the film have the shifting aspect ratios, but it sounds like the 2d version is a constant scope?

Greetings,

Hey Todd, each version has the shifting AR. Put that in my notes while watching the 3D version and forgot to correct after watching the 2D version. I amended the review.

Thanks for the thorough review as usual Ralph. I went ahead and ordered the 3D version from Amazon today. I missed it in theaters but i figured it would be more of the same. Looking forward to the audio and the 3D!

Ralph,

Do you agree with others that the 3D edges out the UHD 4K?

I'm impressed, this is twice that studios send Ralph both the 4k and 3d version for review. I like this trend.

I picked up the 3d version... Since it's hard to get (there's only one release that is 3d, while there are 14 other releases that are a combination of exclusives, 4k, 2k and DVD).

Hello Ralph,

Thank you for the review. I don't know whether I had something to do with it, but I am very glad that more 3D movies are reviewed by you. I never watched a Transformer movie - the concept alone stinks (to me) - but I would have aquired it, if your rating of the added dimension would have been better than what it is. 3D can add so much to a movie (if done right) that even something like Pacific Rim was a whole lot of fun to watch, and I am the Lawrence of Arabaia, Vertigo kind of guy.

Keep up the great work.

Cheers

Great review, Ralph. I was going back and forth on whether or not to get the UHD or the 3D, and decided on the 3D. WOW! Excellent pic with no visible cross-talk or any other issues you can see occasionally on other 3D discs. Very clear, sharp picture, too.

Now, as to the movie, it seemed to kind of go all over the place; however, ultimately, it was a pleasurable ride (leaving your brain at the door, of course!).

Now, the question of the day is: They (the Govt people) called that WWII sub a transformer. when they took off in it.....but it never transformed, so...???????

Thanks for the review Ralph, we pained our way through it yesterday. same thoughts on mark's performance.. wow tough delivery...

we came for the great 3D, destruction for the sake of destruction and ground shaking LFE

I have a large 142" 16:9 that I mask for scope content but left off the masks for this one. The VA wasn't distracting because our eyes were focused towards the center of the screen and could see the content changing to 'IMAX' mode in the peripheral vision. Overall a fun experience if folks can ignore that there is an attempted story wedged somewhere in between explosions.

Thanks for another detail review.


Another must buy for me, since I am also an action junky, and don't mind Michael Bay style of movie.
Sound like the Atmos track sound is worth to watch this movie, even with the low rating for the movie itself.

I saw this movie two nights ago, and the 3D picture and sound were great. Unfortunately, I cannot remember one scene as I fell asleep half way through the movie. As noted, the action was all over the place, and it was too hard to follow. I am almost sick of these current movies because they are too mindless and shallow. Lately, I have been more satisfied watching uTube. That is not good.

Just as my theater screening showed, this film visually impresses most in the final act.

Got the 3D Blu-ray (decided to pay about $20 more than its 2D counterpart will be on Black Friday for it), and for a while I was thinking ehh maybe it's not worth it. But then the final act got me again, where it really shined the most.

I actually had to bump this film up to reference level though, and it was still a very comfortable listen. Did the Atmos track play quietly for anybody else? (note that I do not actually have Atmos, I'm just referring to the decibel levels is all)

This film was not great from a story perspective, but it wasn't nearly as bad as Age of Extinction. I love the original Transformers and Dark of the Moon equally, and looked forward to picking this up--especially after reading Ralph's A/V review. So, on the variable aspect ratio--I have a 144" wide, 16:9 screen, and I'll typically use my Lumagen to fill the screen by zooming and clipping the very edges of the image (the same thing studios do to their movies for playback on cable). Had HDR intensity mapping turned on, and the image was superb...and constant. Truly reference quality. The audio quality was superb as well, and is an absolute thrill ride during the last quarter or so of the movie. the last two chapters in particular are pure reference! The car chase was surprisingly not as thrilling as that found in Dark of the Moon (I've used that for demo purposes so often, I have the music etched into my memory). Lots of bass in this film as well....in spades, but not as taut or textured as the bass in Spiderman: Homecoming (which surprised the heck out of me with how good it was).


One comment on the 3D...maybe this is a downside of using a massive screen with 3D...I've been a huge 3D fan since 2009, and for the first time with this film, I actually had balance issues for three days after seeing this film in 3D, filling the floor-to-ceiling 16:9 screen. I'll not be doing that again! Second row only....no more 3D in first row.


PS. how good is the AV quality for this movie in geneeral? I double dipped--once for the 3D blu ray, and once for the 4K UHD steelbook version. Something needs to be absolute reference for me before I double dip--especially when the story is sorely lacking. This fits the bill to flex our systems!

Did anybody watch this movie on a scope screen? I was just wondering if it would cut off anything important. The previous 3D releases to this worked well in constant scope for me.
