QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A disparate and desperate group of humans and sentient, shape-shifting robots must contend with a threat that could mean the literal end of the world.
PLOT:
In this fifth installment of the "Transformers" franchise, humans are at war with the sentient, shape-shifting robots that arrived on Earth long ago. The leader of the good Autobot ones, Optimus Prime (voice of PETER CULLEN), has left in search of his now devastated home planet of Cybertron, while the leader of the bad Decepticon ones, Megatron (voice of FRANK WELKER), has disappeared.

No longer trusting any of them, the humans have created a military force known as the TRF (Transformers Reaction Force) that's seeking out to find and destroy all of them, but not all humans share that mindset. There's failed inventor Cade Yeager (MARK WAHLBERG) who's sided with a number of good ones, including Bumblebee (voice of ERIK AADAHL) and Hound (voice of JOHN GOODMAN), while his new "employee," Jimmy (JERROD CARMICHAEL), isn't sure what to make of being around such beings.

Orphaned 14-year-old Izabella (ISABELA MONER) has no such qualms, but watches as TRF forces kill one of her Autobot friends, and that Transformer imparts a powerful talisman to Cade. That's of particular interest to historian Sir Edmund Burton (ANTHONY HOPKINS) who has a special reason to bring Cade and Oxford professor Vivian Wembley (LAURA HADDOCK) together to help him and his sociopathic robot assistant, Cogman (voice of JIM CARTER). And that's because they've ended up directly related to events involving King Arthur, Merlin the magician and a Transformer back in the Middle Ages.

With Optimus Prime's planet headed toward Earth and his creator, Quintess (GEMMA CHAN), wanting to gain control of that talisman and the long-hidden and powerful staff that once belonged to Merlin, Cade, Vivian, and Edmund try to beat her to that, all while military types including Colonel William Lennox (JOSH DUHAMEL) must not only contend with the pending arrival of the alien planet, but also the return of Megatron and a number of Decepticons who are also desirous of the staff.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They probably will if they're fans of any or all of the previous "Transformer" films.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For violence and intense sequences of sci-fi action, language, and some innuendo.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
