Buy it... if you're sold on the more classically-inclined tone of this film in the franchise, the British legacy element allowing Steve Jablonsky and his team the ability to supplement their usual, faceless action grinding with some more elegant touches.

Avoid it... if only a few resounding but rather predictable reprises of the franchise's main three themes aren't enough to salvage a very lengthy, redundant, and tiresome listening experience.

Transformers: The Last Knight: (Steve Jablonsky/Various) As longs as these wretched live-action Transformers films continue to draw meaningful profits, Hasbro and Paramount will endeavor to confound critics with their persistence. The human actors may change, the Chevrolet product placements may be subsumed by Mercedes-Benz placements, and more of the original animated show's concepts may be mangled, but director Michael Bay, who continues to insist with each entry that this "Transformers" film is his last, once again perpetuates a terribly mismanaged overarching storyline involving the famed robots. In Filmtracks' review of 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction, it was postulated that the only way to kill off this brainless franchise was if the planet-eating Transformer named Unicron decided to make Earth his next lunch. Wouldn't you know, actually, that 2017's Transformers: The Last Knight reveals that Earth actually is Unicron, and that the battle between our world and the robots' Cybertron is more complex than originally thought. Somewhere, Orson Welles must be pleasantly surprised. Of course, this movie has to throw in some knights of the Arthurian age and merge the tale of Merlin and Excalibur with all of this nonsense involving ugly, indistinguishable robots, an excuse to allow Sir Anthony Hopkins to explain the whole franchise to us with delicious distinction. Despite its incomprehensible conceptual ideas, Transformers: Age of Extinction did, at the very least, offer enthusiasts the opportunity to hear the two lead actors from the original cartoon, Peter Cullen and Frank Welker, reunite once again, the latter belatedly allowed to reprise his role as Megatron while the former has always remained the indisputable Optimus Prime. Despite all its ills, the music for the Tranformers film franchise has remained relatively consistent in tone, and something must be said for composer Steve Jablonsky's ability to offer the same general sound for all five films thus far. His contribution was stunted in the fourth film by Bay's insistence that other contributing artists lend themes to certain scenes and ideas, and that technique is fortunately abandoned for this fifth entry.
