A cratering franchise’s overdue Mercy Kill makes one last streaming stand
As popular as they’ve proved to a point, it’s impossible to argue that Michael Bay’s time was at the forefront of the transformers Franchise peaked with the very first installment. From there, the reviews got worse and worse with each subsequent episode, until thankfully the last nail was hammered in the coffin The Last Knight Craters at the box office.
Bay claimed this threequel Dark side of the moon would be his last contribution to mythology, but he returned for $1.1 billion Age of Annihilation, which again broke the ten-digit barrier. However, he definitely ran out of luck the fifth time The Last Knight‘s 11 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and $605 million gross make it by far the lowest-rated and lowest-earning of the quintet.
Of course, no marketable property is ever really dead and buried The Last Knight doesn’t even come close to marking the end of the line. We let bumblebee out because it’s the best transformers Streak by a country mile, but Steven Caple Jr.’s forthcoming sequel/reboot hybrid Rise of the Beasts is already being planned as the first entry in a completely new trilogy. Oh good.
As unspeakably terrible as The Last Knight The brand itself has proven to be a consistent draw for streaming subscribers, with the sad tale of Mark Wahlberg saving the universe currently once again ranking as one of the most-watched titles on the global Netflix charts, according to FlixPatrol. Anthony Hopkins is having a blast, and it’s official that a Transformer killed Hitler, but those are about the only fancy positives you can find.
