The Last Knight in retrospect
I don’t feel like TLK was a pile of garbage like 90% of the people that saw it. I found enjoyed a lot of things and like a lot. Contrary to most I found Hot Rod’s bad accent hilarious because he directly states that he hates it but he can’t get rid of it. To me Megatron’s design was awesome, Steve Jablonsky yet again wrote a great soundtrack, and the Battle between Optimus and Bumblebee, while short, was executed greatly. With that said, to me, the fil was overwhelming disappointing. It promises so much yet delivered so little. It teased such a strong Arch with Optimus Prime yet it was just kinda there. It teased Quintessa to be the ultimate creator as an ode to the Quintesson but she was just kinda there. The whole “Earth is Unicron” arc was ripped from Prime in a sloppy way. There was even the idea that Megatron would become a good guy for a bit as he would want to conquer earth where as Optimus now wants to destroy it, thus having Meg’s interest would align the humans causing an uneasy alliance. They teased Dragonstorm to be an ultimate dispatcher of Justice yet he was just there. Same thing goes for the knights, Infernocus, Hot Rod, and the Cons. I wanted so much more from this film. I don’t hate it, I’m just sad. What about you?
