The smartest, sweetest coming-of-age story of the year that also happens to feature giant alien robots.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The best news of this detour is that it's proof that good cinema and blockbusters can go hand in hand. [Full Review in Spanish]

If this is the beginning of a new franchise, I hope it continues in the same vein.
February 7, 2019
Works in stripping back the world building mythos and placing its focus on a nostalgic sci-fi action adventure that is as sweet as it is electrifying.

Lack of racial diversity in Bumblebee is tempered by a complex female lead, with the end result of a rockin' movie guaranteed to make your Millennial soul soar.

Bumblebee is an incredibly nice breath of fresh air compared to the previous Transformers movies. If you have been scarred or turned off by the Michael Bay version of the franchise, then this movie is certainly a welcomed change of pace.

A rarity for a Transformers outing: actual characters with definable arcs! What a concept!
January 25, 2019
The 80's setting adds to the fun, lighthearted atmosphere of the film that was so confusingly absent from the Bay Transformer movies.

At last: a "Transformers" movie with the humor and heart of the source material.
January 18, 2019
"A simple, joyful, popcorn movie".

Bumblebee is a nostalgic bundle of fun, poignant and nostalgic joy with all the 80's tropes that one could want. Not only is it a good Transformers movie, it is a good movie that stand on its own bee's knees.

All of the Transformers films before this one have been steaming piles of poo. So the fact that this one is watchable means, by default, that it's the best Transformers film ever.
Full Review | Original Score: B

...a mildly watchable, geared-towards-small-children diversion that could (and should) have been better.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 10, 2019
A significant course correction for the series but only a modest success.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 10, 2019
A blockbuster about robots that feels anything but robotic, and not really like a blockbuster. The central relationship is as solid as B:127; I did cry, and not because they only played one Duran Duran song. (It was the best Duran Duran song.)
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

... works best when the story sticks to the buddy-film trappings... makes you wish this is where they had actually started instead.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Compared to the previous 'Transformers' movies, Bumblebee is a breath of fresh air, emotional and surprisingly honest. [Full review in Spanish]

Bumblebee is a prequel we didn't really want, but man, I'm glad we got it.
January 7, 2019
Bumblebee gets its best moments when it sticks with the characters and their conflicts. [Full Review in Spanish]

Bumblebee is pretty good folks, making it one of 2018's biggest surprises of the year.
