Ranking The Transformers Movies

With the release of “Transformers: The Last Knight” a few days away, it felt like the proper time to rank all of the theatrical “Transformers” films. It’s time to “roll out” the list! Yes, I know that joke was lame.

 

  1. The Transformers: The Movie (1986)- No, this isn’t nostalgia talking. It is genuinely still the best Transformers movie to date. It’s weird, funny, it takes risks, it has a killer soundtrack (“The Touch” and Weird Al!), and it features a character (Unicron) voiced by Orson Welles. Enough said.

 

  1. Transformers (2007)- The first and still best of the live-action Transformers films from start to finish. While the Transformers themselves aren’t on screen nearly enough, director Michael Bay deserves some credit for making this beloved franchise come to life on the big screen. Whether you like it or not, there’s no denying that it reinvigorated the entire franchise in every department.

 

  1. Transformers: Dark of the Moon- The first half of the third entry is a complete bore, but once you get to the Battle of Chicago, it becomes an intense ride. If only the rest of the film was as good as that lengthy large scale battle.

 

  1. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen- Despite a few memorable action set pieces and the inclusion of some cool new villains (Devastator and the Fallen), the sequel to 2007’s “Transformers” was largely a soulless spectactle despite its boffo box office.

 

  1. Transformers: Age of Extinction- This bloated and almost unwatchable fourth installment was weighed down by an excessively long runtime, endless set pieces, and dull new characters. Not even the Dinobots could save this one.
