Mark Wahlberg Talks Crashing Daughter's Date and Being Surprised by Her Boyfriend

Mike Hodges | 22 June, 2017, 05:57

Once again, the resourceful Cade (Mark Wahlberg) is at the center of it all, having come into contact with an object that could hold the key to Earth's salvation.

Anthony Hopkins (as Sir Edmund Burton): "The secret history of Transformers here on Earth". Aside from Wahlberg, the cast also includes Stanley Tucci reprising his role from "Age of Extinction", alongside Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro from the first three movies.

"Watching an actor of Hopkins" calibre swear at his robo-butler and attempt to wring out laughs by uttering the word "dude' is painful - even for a Transformers movie", writes a critic from the New York Post.

He's a sort of keeper of the Arthurian/Transformers legend, and he knows that a long-forecast climactic battle is coming for control of Merlin's staff, an ancient relic that has formidable powers when wielded by the right person.

Last summer saw installments of both the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Star Trek" franchises disappoint, and it now looks as though Paramount has put both properties on the back burner. He is portrayed as just someone clueless and caught in the crossfire between two worlds. Cogman, played by Jim Carter of "Downton Abbey", is a sociopathic Transformer butler serving Hopkins' character.

We can add Anthony Hopkins to the list of reliable character actors who've fallen for the siren song of Michael Bay's chequebook and the Transformers franchise; I can only assume the Welsh Oscar victor needed to buy an island or something.

The Transformers franchise may have been past the point of saving in The Last Knight, yet there were glimpses of an entertaining film hiding out in the clutter. It is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

"I feel like a lot of times people write young characters too young - they pander to children and that's not really how people talk", reasons Marcum. "The genius thing is he was so sweet and [my daughter] is like steamrolling me all the time and he's seeing it", Wahlberg said.

One thing you can say positive about Michael Bay as a director is the guy is persistent in the face of adversity concerning the Transformers franchise.

"Who doesn't want to make a movie with Michael Bay?" questions Marcum.

Chris Van Vliet: "Oh, you just show up and there's a harness there?" We didn't think it could get worse than the last one, but Bay loves to prove us wrong.

Any reference or fan service to Transformers lore just comes across more like lip service than anything else.
