Synopsis

Science fiction adventure. Merlin collaborates with alien robots to save King Arthur's reign. Centuries later, Cade Yeager finds himself in the middle of great turmoil involving alien robots coming to Earth to prepare for a cosmic invasion which will reclaim the planet from humans and their Transformer allies. Travelling to a castle in England owned by Sir Edmond Burton, Yeager learns that he is the chosen 'last knight' who can defeat the apocalyptic invaders, while Oxford academic Viviane Wembly discovers that she is Merlin's last descendant and she alone can wield the weapon of ultimate power that was Merlin's staff. After voyaging by submarine to find the staff, the heroes finally fight alongside the good Transformers and the military to face down the alien foes who are arriving over Stone Henge. During this, the mighty Transformer Optimus Prime is sent by an alien goddess to steal the all-important staff, though Yeager refuses to believe he cannot be brought back to the side of good.
