Movie Review

Rating :

Verdict : First transformers with a female lead.

Bumblebee part of Transformers series comes from a new director Travis Knight starring, Hailey Steinfeld and John Cena. A blast from the past, the film is mainly about fill up the gaps and answering some questions about Bee's past. Like the most important one, Bee's missing voice box. 

Even though Travis Knight has given the world some of the most amazing animated films like Caroline, The BoxTrolls,  ParaNorman and  Kubo and the Two Strings, he does nothing out of the ordinary to Bee's legacy. It is the origin of Bee's story on Earth yet it is just another Transformers film. 

The film follows a tactful formula inspired from the first film with a few changes and reversal which in this case is just necessary. Hailey Steinfeld as Charlie Watson influences the film as much as if not less, (Shia LaBeouf) Sam Witwicky did for the 2007 release. As for the other cast of the film, they have limited roles and no reasons per se for their existence which includes, John Cena as Agent Burns, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. as Memo. 
The logic of the film is based on the Transformers series timeline and what gaps they needed to fill for the story. As for an emotional arc or Charlie's character goes they seem like a filler. The film starts with an effort of Bumblebee being a story about Charlie and Bee's friendship. Instead, we are left with just a story about how Bee survived on earth after he first landed and made first human contact. 
What saves the film is nostalgia and audience love for Bee aka B-127. His change from a soldier to a lost Autobot to someone who wants to protect the planet is the true hero of the story. Even if the changes are subtle and never stated out loud, it does the job right with emotional satisfaction. The first half of the film takes its time while the second half is all action. Which works in a story like this since we have been fed the same thing since the start of the series back in 2007.
