A rather bland attempt to revive the Transformers franchise. Since Bay left the series it is only a shadow of its former self, this latest addition doesn't do much to change that. What you get is loud Hollywood action with oodles of cheese, but it lacks that little extra to make it acceptably entertaining.

It's the 90s when the Autobots land on Earth in search of a relic that cannot fall into the wrong hands. The enemy is right on their tail and a race starts to find out where the relic is hidden. Together with Noah, a young kid from New York, and the Maximals, they try to outsmart the Decepticons to save the Earth.

The only reason why Bay's films were fun is because Bay always brings something extra. Yes, the plot is silly, the voices ridiculous and the comedy unnecessary, but the action is always top-notch. With that gone, not much remains, besides some boring 90s nostalgia. Not the worst blockbuster, but pretty pointless and forgettable.
