Best transformers movie they have made, it does have its flaws but it’s very good! There is a scene within the first 15 minutes that shows Carly in a low cut nightgown and you see her underwear, but if you skip 1-2 minutes you will be just fine, you may miss a little dialogue, but it isn’t that important. About halfway through this film is when it starts getting pretty intense, anyone who has watched the lord of the rings and the hobbit should be fine, your child should be fine watching it as long as you skip the underwear scene (the underwear scene happens right after the title screen)
