It goes without saying that the Transformers franchise has never been a critical darling.

Apart from the semi-decent first movie, the rest of them have been pretty bad. This year's Transformers: The Last Knight is no different and it sounds like Michael Bay has not learnt his lesson.

If you go onto Rotten Tomatoes' website, you can see that the current rating (as of time of writing) for the film is a dismal 18 percent. The average score critics have given the film is a horrendous 3.4/10. This means the majority of reviewers would have given the movie 1 or 2 stars out of 5.

Only 12 reviewers like it so far with 56 of them hating it. It's likely the rating will stay level. You can read the critical consensus below.

Cacophonous, thinly plotted, and boasting state-of-the-art special effects, The Last Knight is pretty much what you'd expect from the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise.

It sounds like the movie suffers from the same problem as before. It focuses too heavily on human characters and features the same tasteless type of Michael Bay humor.

Not to mention the plot is nonsensical and the finale is another bloated CGI fest. Optimus Prime is also not featured much even though he's the most popular character of the franchise.

If there is a silver lining to this, it's that this will be the last Transformers movie that will be directed by Michael Bay. In the near future, Paramount Pictures is going to do spin-off movies that will be written and directed by different people.

Hopefully those films are fun and aren't like the previous ones directed by Michael Bay. The movie is out this week in many countries if you still plan on watching it.
