Much of what you hear about Michael Bay’s latest Transformers entry makes it sound more watchable than it is. Stanley Tucci hamming it up as Merlin the wizard? Marky Mark employing a small robot pterodactyl to bring him bottles of Bud Lite®? A World War II flashback where Transformers help the Allies defeat Hitler? Yes, that’s all here, the fifth chapter in the timeless franchise about alien robots that sometimes are also cars. But you have to remember: Bay and his team of 13-year-old boy writers aren’t as smart as you are. (I say that with confidence.) So whatever you’re imagining, it’s dumber, clumsier and more exasperating than that. This time, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) and cohorts must stop the bad alien robots from getting the magic staff of power. The descendants of King Arthur’s knights are somehow involved (as explained by chief expositor Anthony Hopkins), as is a gorgeous English historian (Laura Haddock). The film quickly devolves into undifferentiated shooting, yelling and exploding, and the robots never seem like anything other than CGI creations, especially compared to their automobile forms. And Tucci’s only in the first five minutes!
