There are two type of gritty and they are very much different takes: There is Nolan-esque Dark Knight or the Logan claws-through-the-face, neither of which feel like they would fit the patriotic fireworks and fun-factor of the Transformers franchise.
United States actor Josh Duhamel, who played William Lennox in the first three films (Transformers, Transformers:Revenge Of The Fallen and Transformers: Dark Side Of The Moon) and returns in TLK, thought otherwise.
Love or hate his work, and there are many good arguments on both sides, the return of Optimus Prime and company will probably add the better part of a billion dollars to Bay's box-office total.
It's unlikely that The Last Knight's reviews will affect its performance, as the franchise has been hit with critical derision throughout its run, but this entry seems particularly dismal compared to the others, with many calling it busy an headache-inducing.

Some enjoyable Cogman scenes: When he randomly attacks Yeager, when he has road rage in the middle of a vehicle chase (while Burton gives chasing Decepticons the middle finger), and when our heroes are in a submarine (yes, there are submarines in this movie) and Cogman catches fish for Yeager and Wembley and we watch as the machine beats the hell out of the fish before serving them.
See you at the movies!
As a matter of fact, "Transformers" is expanding into spinoff territory: "Bumblebee", based on the yellow-and-black Autobot that's been a fan favorite, is planned for 2018 if Bay and his team can get it done by then. This is certainly a recommendation if audiences hope to see a picture for its phenomenal cinematic footage, and after Bay and Sela's decision to shoot 98% of the movie through IMAX 3D cameras, viewers will definitely see why.
Meanwhile, the U.S. premiere of "The Last Knight" was held June 20, one day before the film's release.
Overall, I give Transformers: The Last Knight 0.5 out of 4 stars.
