Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth film in a series that shows no signs of slowing down, and now it’s out on home video.
There’s one thing you can say for Michael Bay films: They’re gorgeous to look at. You may not always know which Transformer you’re looking at, but the scenery, lighting and so on is always top notch, and that shines through on this Blu-ray transfer.
The Blu-ray set we were sent for this review is a good overall set with Blu-ray, DVD and a code for a digital copy included, but there is a third disc that makes it a bit odd. The bonus features are on a completely separate disc and it just feels odd and inconvenient to be honest. If you’re like me you like to jump directly from the film to the bonus features, and it just isn’t possible with this set.
The special features are all interesting and give you some good behind the scenes info on instances such as shooting at Stonehenge, castles and so on. And in their defense, in regards to them having their own disc, some of them are quite lengthy, so it may have simply been a matter of space.
There is nothing, however, here in this set that screams you need to run out and get immediately. This is worth adding to your collection, but it is not necessary to pick up the first moment you see it and just wait for the price to eventually be discounted.
