Where the Bay "Transformers" movies alternated between ecstasy and dullness, "Bumblebee" is consistently middling.

A frustrating joy ride. It'd be twice as good if it was half as long.

If only not being terrible was the same as being good; Bumblebee is still just reheated nostalgia.

The movie works in large part because of the depth of Steinfeld's performance. We haven't seen such a well-realized character in any of the other Transformers movies.

Imagine if John Hughes made a Transformers movie. Or: Think E.T., but with auto parts.

"Bumblebee" does hold up as a fun, family-appropriate movie on its own terms, and redeems its beleaguered franchise in the process.

With Hailee Steinfeld impressively leading the action blockbuster, this new telling of an old tale is a refreshing change.

As far as Transformers films go, Bumblebee ranks among the better of the group in the series.

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.

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.

We've become so accustomed to large scale visual extravaganzas that when something moderately less destructive like Bumblebee, it almost feels revolutionary.

It's happened you guys - they finally made a good Transformers movie!

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.

A throwback to classic family romps like Short Circuit, WarGames, Flight of the Navigator and ET. It's no coincidence Steven Spielberg is listed as a producer.
April 16, 2019
It's what Transformers fans have wanted and needed for a long time.

It could have been a good movie if it wasn't so heavily and obviously inspired by better films.
April 8, 2019
We've become so inured to the idea of just being run over by a Transformers movie that it feels downright revelatory to see one that works as something other than overkill.

"Bumblebee" has its robots fight because it's the right choice for the characters in that moment. It's an exceedingly weird thing to see in a "Transformers" movie, (depth and growth, that is) but it is not unwelcome in the slightest.

The story is simple, the villain count is low, the camerawork isn't done like a Sports Illustrated shoot, and the characters have actual flesh on them and relatable feelings. It works!

The smartest, sweetest coming-of-age story of the year that also happens to feature giant alien robots.
