João Beleza Freire’s review published on Letterboxd :
Bad in all the wrong ways, trading the gaudy excess and over-the-top action for faux sentimentality and the least genuine attempt at ’80s nostalgia I’ve ever seen.
Particularly insulting is the score, constantly trying to trick you into thinking you’re watching a cute Disney moment, except it's an ugly robot trying to sit on a sofa and almost crushing a dog.
Turns out only Michael Bay can make Transformers movies because he is an auteur. Bring back the breakneck-pace kinetic editing and the pyramids exploding and the robots peeing on each other.
