Our Box Office Mom reviews Transformers: the Last Knight from a parent's perspective.

In Transformers: The Last Knight there is a war between humans and Transformers. Strangely, a large number of robots come crashing down on Earth which cause human authorities to be overwhelmed.  The chaos is discovered due to the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Autobot leader (the good guys), Optimus Prime, is gone but with the help of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Bumblebee, an English lord (Anthony Hopkins), and an Oxford professor (Laura Haddock), they work together to try and  save the world. Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth installment on the Transformers series.
