About the Movie
In Bumblebee, CYBERTRON has fallen. When OPTIMUS PRIME sends BUMBLEBEE to defend Earth, his journey to become a hero begins. Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld), a teenager trying to find her place in the world, discovers and repairs the battle-scarred robot, who’s disguised as a Volkswagen Beetle. As the DECEPTICONS hunt down the surviving AUTOBOTS with the help of a secret agency led by Agent Burns (John Cena), BUMBLEBEE and Charlie team up to protect the world in an action-packed adventure that’s fun for the whole family.
My Take on the Movie
I have been a fan of the Transformers since I was a kid. I started watching their cartoons in the 1980’s and I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the Transformer movies over the years as well. This movie gives a ton of back story to Bumblebee that you did not get in the past. I really enjoyed learning more about the backstory of Bumblebee, such as how he lost his voice and how and why he came to Earth.
The movie is a full adventure and is non-stop action from beginning to end. The movie has a great story behind it and while there is a lot of action, the movie also has a lot of heart. Bumblebee has an amazing story that shows the powerful relationship between Bumblebee and his new friend Charlie Watson. There are a lot of parallels into what Charlie needs in her life and what Bumblebee needs as well. Bumblebee and Charlie grow together and Charlie does what she can to make Charlie stronger and Bumblebee does the same.
The relationship between Charlie and Bumblebee makes the movie even stronger.
Growing up in the 1980’s there were a lot of things that reminded me of my youth which was also fun. The music, clothes, posters and more took me back in time which was a lot of fun for my wife and I.
Is the movie perfect, no, but as someone that is a fan of the Transformers I will say that it stays true to the story of the Transformers and adds a ton of back story to Bumblebee, Soundwave, Optimus Prime and others which allows you to only get more engaged in the overall movie and the Transformers world.
All-in-all this was a great movie that I was excited to be able to see and you will love seeing this too.
On top of the movie I was sent the amazing Bumblebee fan kit above. I loved this kit as it allows you to be one with the movie. I particularly loved the actual Autobots as I have collected others in the past and these Autobots were well crafted and definitely can inspire creative play or can simply be amazing just for display as well. I am very impressed with these additions to the movie and of you are a transformer fan, you will love them as well!
