This is what Transformers should have been from the beginning!!! I grew up in the 90’s and this takes me back. The looks the feeling and the plot. Everything is there. 90’s Transformers are Back!!!

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.

I have to say this one has heart and soul. loved the fact it took place in the 80s. I grew up in that decade and liked the cartoons. they did their homework on this one. hats off to them. I hope it becomes a success in the middle of the holidays with stiff competition.

Slow, storyline lacked and the acting left much to be desired. This feel like another attempt at milking the Transformers saga for all its worth.

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

This was such a great movie! It almost seemed totally unrelated to the Transformer series. It was a great background for someone like myself who didn't watch the show growing up. I'd like to see one made about each of the major transformers.

With an opportunity to erase all that care before it, BumbleBee movie did a pretty good job, almost. The most exciting and successful moments are the ones that took place in Cybertron. The character design was true to it’s Generation 1 origins. Seeing Arcee and others in Live action form was a fan’s dream come true. Where the movie lacked was in the script. Some of the dialogue between human characters was cheesy and not from it’s time of 1987. As a kid of the 80’s, I think the writing team could have done some more research in that respect. Also, reducing the post Cybertron Bee to BB-8 from the new Star Wars movies was a sad attempt to make him cute. Overall, the Cybertronian scenes were worth it.

I have seen director’s cut when heroine dives into water in climax. Story is simple but screenplay is very well. Actors are newbies but have done it with ease. John Cena looks really like a army. Over all I enjoyed it and would suggest to anyone.

It was a great movie. Bee is my favorite transformer and he did not disappoint.. Hailee girl she had me in tears in some points of the movie. the 80's music was a plus for me.. :)

They changed the story from how the first transformers moving described how they came to earth. There was barely any action and Bee was portrayed as a scared little adolescent at times. I love transformers but this one was a disappointment.

I grew up watching the original 80s cartoon, when I saw the opening Cybertron battle scene, WOW!!! took my breath away!!! this is what we've needed and Wanted! (Mr.Bay I am talking to YOU) Thank you Travis and the talented screenwriter (drawing blank on name) for bringing our childhood memories back!!!! 6 Stars all the way!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Cute for the kids. Very little cursing ("Mr. Cena said s***, Mom!"), adorable and squeaky clean heroine, cute robot-child friendship. Pretty violent robot fighting but not over the top. Took a 9-year old who loves robots and it was a winner for kids of 2009 and kids of the 90's. :) Some silly references and corny setups but great for what it was.

Like how apps have lite versions, this was a very lite version of the transformers series. They did the bare minimum on this one even for a(late to the game) origin story. The plot was basically a mix of the first one, ET and the iron giant. The acting was whatever, it seems like John cena lost whatever mediocre acting skill he had on this movie. This could’ve been way more engaging and fun but they seemed to just wanna make a movie and get some money. This should’ve came out years ago in the middle of the transformers series, not this late, it would been a bit better. This really just a movie for pre teen entertainment. Very “eh”. And bumblebee is a warrior from a highly advanced robot civilization, and doesn’t understand the concept of discretion and acts like a 5 year old that can’t be left alone.

This was one of the best Transformer movies I’ve ever seen!! I loved the cast and everything about it. I even learned some stuff about the Transformers I never knew. Everyone has to see this movie. It’s got (mostly) action, comedy, and it’s family-friendly (except for a couple scenes). And it’s an overall great movie.

This was a huge letdown for me. I am a BIG Transformer fan from way back. Bumblebee is the Transformer's warrior with the most heart and best fighter (lb for lb). There was so much character development for Charlie that most of the movie was about Hailee Steinfeld's character not about "Bee". There was ao much more that could have been done to show that Bumblebee is more than just a shrimpy nice Transformer.

Metacritic

60
Dec 19, 2018

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.

ScreenCrush

Dec 9, 2018

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.

Dec 9, 2018

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.
