Without sacrifice, there can be no victory
Ten years after Michael Bay launched the Transformers franchise, the director is set to mark the anniversary with the release of the fifth installment in the series – ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’. This latest edition shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war and Optimus Prime is gone … The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving the world befalls on the shoulders of three heroes – Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock) – who form an unlikely alliance. As the film synopsis states, ‘There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.’
