Storyline Heading

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - This is a 1980s-set prequel to the live action toy- and animated-series based Transformers science fiction/action-adventure film series, centering on the title robot. Other familiar Transformers characters make brief appearances. The tone is more distinctly young-skewing and family-aimed, with young Hailee Steinfeld being the lead; John Cena only has a supporting role. Despite the more kid-friendly tone,there is some language and some action scenes that may be too intense for very young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average There's not only nothing new here, there's nothing convincing either. And if I'm supposed to judge "Bumblebee" based on how well it succeeds at what it tries to do (rather than what came before it), it's still not very good.

NY Post Full Review
Good There are real emotional stakes, an appealing 1980s look and some genuinely funny jokes. Bumblebee is more than the usual collection of idiosyncracies, a stereotypical voice and some one-liners — he has a soul. No other film in this franchise has gotten us to care about these clownish buckets of bolts before, but our hearts go out to this one.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average ...Bumblebee finds space for real human emotion in a world dominated by sentient corporate logos, and while this rediscovery of the human in the machine makes the film easier to watch than its precursors, one may wonder if that actually makes it better.
