Sometimes you just go to the movie theater to be entertained.
August 28, 2020
By looking back to the 80's from whence it came, the Transformers franchise seems to have found its heart again.

[A]n affectionate (if obvious) riff on The Iron Giant, Bumblebee separates itself from the pack by not being desperate to prove itself.

It is a well-intentioned blockbuster, but it falls short when it comes to offering an exciting product. [Full review in Spanish]

Bumblebee succeeds because it relies not on acton and special effects but on characters and a sweet story about friendship, loss and finding your inner hero.

Bumblebee never quite finds the right balance. It's intentionally cheesy and silly, sometimes in a warm, heartfelt way, but other times in a cringing way. It's bubbly and will play well with the intended audience, but there's not much more than that.

Bumblebee is one heck of a fun ride. It has action, humor, heart and character, as well as a plot that respects the source cartoons.

Bumblebee has become the thing that people criticised the Bay films for being - a mere cash grab for cash grabs sake. Look, Bumblebee isn't bad. It's also not good. It's just middle of the road serviceable.

The film presents late-80s America so fetishistically that it feels at times like a follow-up to Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher (2014), and its recycling of 80s teen-movie cliches are also weirdly reverential.

It's incredibly well done, backed by powerful emotions, it's fun and funny, and genuinely great for all ages.

This sort of unhinged passion could've greatly benefited Bumblebee. It's all just far too by the book and safe; a dull pledge from an uncertain committee of movie executives to do better with the Transformers' mythos in future instalments.

Energetic and a whole lot of fun.

Your kids will probably love it but there's not enough here for hardcore fans to appreciate and, as a blockbuster, Bumblebee sadly falls short in a month with far better offerings.
August 19, 2019
With Hailee Steinfeld impressively leading the action blockbuster, this new telling of an old tale is a refreshing change.
July 5, 2019
As far as Transformers films go, Bumblebee ranks among the better of the group in the series.
June 19, 2019
If you like the Transformers, rest assured this is a good one. If you're exhausted by Hollywood franchise filmmaking, then this absolutely will not change your mind.
June 5, 2019
Intelligent choices in design and casting make this a far more satisfying Transformers film, however in appeasing the franchise's fans with the out of place , over the top action sequences, the film loses it way towards the end.
June 3, 2019
We've become so accustomed to large scale visual extravaganzas that when something moderately less destructive like Bumblebee, it almost feels revolutionary.
May 2, 2019
It's happened you guys - they finally made a good Transformers movie!
May 1, 2019
It may have taken a while to get here, but finally - finally! - fans have the Transformers movie that they deserve... An utterly great popcorn picture.
