Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Oh you know, just your average “girl makes friends with her car, which is secretly an alien robot in disguise” story – with a twist! Set in 1987, Bumblebee is battle-worn and hiding out in a junkyard, where’s he’s discovered by a teenage girl named Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld). Decepticons and shadowy government agents aren’t the only things plaguing the cutest Autobot, though. Because as Charlie finds out, Bumblebee does NOT care to be Rickrolled… Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight joins the Transformers franchise to helm this entry, which also stars John Cena, Kenneth Choi, and Pamela Adlon.

Almost in tears during the opening sequence. Seeing Optimus Prime, Soundwave, Shockwave and Ramjet/Dirge and Ravage in their original form we all grew up knowing from Saturday morning cartoons. So glad to see this was a soft reboot that way it can steer clear of the mess that Michael Bay made. This was the movie us fans was waiting for when we first learned Transformers was coming to the big screen. Hope Paramount will continue let this happen.

It’s like an apology for the other Transformers films. Still produced by Bay... just not directed. Much more satisfying action movie

The whole production just works. Steinfeld, Lendeborg, and Cena are extremely likable leads, and there’s a soul and an innocence to Bumblebee that was never present in any of the previous Transformers.

The selection of Oscar-nominated animated feature film director Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) to helm the prequel turns out to be spot-on, as he exhibits an instinctual sense for the film’s requisite action quotient while attentively crafting the central characters’ emotional arcs.

Director Travis Knight does his best to balance clattering spectacle with a modest girl-and-her-robot tale. He’s assisted mightily by Hailee Steinfeld, who infuses this uneven action film with significant soul.
