Score: 83%

For any fan of the classic Transformers series, Bumblebee is an absolute joy to watch, and a heartwarmingly personal tale of a young girl and her giant robot for anyone else. Similar to the 1999 film, The Iron Giant, Bumblebee brings many elements to the table that fans and audiences alike won’t expect upon first glance. The film serves as a soft reboot for the Transformers film franchise, which will come as a relief to many due to how infamous the previous films are. Each and every one of the characters gets their own moments to shine during the film, paired with numerous 80’s references and callbacks that fans won’t want to miss. Bumblebee is a winter blockbuster that is truly more than meets the eye.
