In a Nutshell: Bumblebee (2018)

220px-Bumblebee_(film)_posterWell…what can I say? Pleasantly surprised? I really was. Actually, dare I say “what a nice movie”. It really was. A light-ish action movie, which, sometimes felt more like a mini-coming-of-age movie combined with mini-feel-good stuff. Don’t lambaste me…that’s honestly how I felt watching this one – that it was about Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) finding not so much Bee or BumbleBee or B-127 but herself. I love the interaction between her and this transforming robot. His facial expressions are beautiful. OK, not what I should say of a soldier and hero.

Anyway, the story is pretty much that B-127 needs to lay low on earth for a while until Optimus Prime reappears. Disguised as a yellow VW Beetle, he becomes Charlie‘s junkyard car and ultimately friend. Naturally, they save the world together.

For a light-ish action-sci-fi movie also starring John Cena amongst others, give this one a watch. It works quite well. For me, anyway. Happy watching.

  1. Would I need to watch the other Transformers movies to enjoy watching this? I haven’t seen any of them, but Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena and an 80’s soundtrack sound right up my street.

    1. Nope…no need to watch the others. I haven’t seen any of the others (except, I think maybe one which I can’t remember)…it works well as a stand-alone.
      Have a wonderful week ahead Paul.
