Where is Cade’s Daughter in Transformers: The Last Knight?

England, where much of the second half of the film is set, is a land of polo-playing, Barbour-wearing, upper-class idiots, who look like they’ve parachuted in from the Made In Chelsea reality television show.With “Transformers: The Last Knight” (opening in theaters on Wednesday), we have arrived at the fifth movie in the series based on the legendary Hasbro toys – perhaps the franchise that’s most in on the joke that everything on the screen is just insane. Which now that I think about it, sounds a lot like being at the dentist. Together, the three characters must race to uncover the secret history of the Transformers before the world is destroyed. But if director Michael Bay weren’t able to stage increasingly elaborate world-destroying action sequences, there would be no redeeming qualities to these movies at all. While not exactly a household name, Knight directed one of the biggest unsung masterpieces of previous year, Kubo and the Two Strings, which uses stop-motion animation and Japanese folklore to tell a wonderfully compelling story.But after watching this latest one, The Last Knight, I found myself hoping to high heavens that this really will be Bay’s final Transformers movie.”I don’t know. Michael says it is his last one, so I got with Michael“.In this case that person is Viviane (Laura Haddock), a British scholar who is skeptical of the Round Table tales and is also just the right age to be a potential romantic interest for Cade. “It’s time to do other stuff”. Why do we keep paying money to see these movies knowing that they are so awful?Mark Wahlberg: “Well you know what?”Mark Wahlberg (as Cade Yeager): “We’re not giving up on Prime, OK?”While this real knight is refreshing to watch, Bay still can’t get rid of stereotypes – being English means polo matches and living in castles. Every movie the studio has released so far this year has been a domestic flop or disappointment, as not one of their six 2017 releases so far has topped $60 million stateside. Matt Singer from ScreenCrush states, “Either this movie is dumb or I am”. What do you want to see in Bumblebee’s movie?Technical premiere: “Transformers: The Last Knight” was shot with a 3D rig fitted with two Arri Alexa 65s to effectively create the stereoscopic footage for IMAX 3D instead of having to make adjustments in postproduction.
