Bumblebee - Movie Review

Kaylin - AV May 03, 2019

Check our catalog!

What Transformers:  Bumblebee lacks in comedic relief it makes up for with beautiful special effects.   This prequel to the science-fiction movie Transformers gives viewers a chance to see what happened to the beloved Bumblebee when Optimus Prime backed him up against the dreaded Decepticons.  Before Bee met Sam Witwicky he had another best friend that helped him get on his feet on a new planet, seeking a new home for his people, his own planet being ravaged by a terrible civil war. However, what’s meant to be an emotional journey with an established beloved character, instead feels rushed, with lackluster support characters and a thin storyline.  Attempts at humor fell flat and instead felt forced and unnatural.  Dazzling animation and special effects help to keep viewer interest throughout the nearly two hour long flick. Overall rating: C+
