Movie Review: BumbleBee
This film is directed by Travis Knight and it stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg, Dylan O’Brien and Angela Bassett.
This film is a prequel to the first Transformers movie (2007) and it focuses on the Bumble Bee character.
I watched this film last night and was in the audience where John Cena, Angela Bassett and Jorge Lendegorg made the special appearance (ArcLight Hollywood). This film focuses on BumbleBees journey and why he was sent to earth. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) is turning 18 and she is hoping to get a car as her bday gift. She comes across the yellow beetle and not only does she get a car but a friend. This film is a blast! It’s full of action and heartfelt moments. This movie is funny, moving and entertaining. It’s definitely the best transformers movie of the franchise. I liked this film much more than the first one. Hailee Steinfeld is a great actress and definitely carries this film beautifully. The supporting cast also do their job and carry their weight in this film. John Cena was good too. This film does a good job in developing their characters and earns the heartfelt moments. In someway this film feels like a coming of age movie for both Charlie and BumbleBee. Overall this is a great film and I would highly recommend seeing it!!
I give this film a 8.5 out of 10
