Bumblebee (Press screening review)

Director; Travis Knight
Action/Sci-fi
1h 53 minutes
Swedish premiere; December 25th

Travis Knight just wiped his brilliant behind with Michael Bay. Knight delivered a highly entertained, action-packed, fantastically cast – altogether great blockbuster! I then remembered why I so much loved the first Transformers movie and BumbleBee. Knight brought back that cute and charming robot back into our lives and this time, also created that amazing bond between the teen and the robot that we got to experience in the first one. There is a touch of heart and soul in that relationship that Bay lacked to continue to deliver in the rest of the franchise films.

BumbleBee is in a way a prequel to all Transformers movies, the background story to how BumbleBee lost his voice and how it all began. A great script to know more about the Autobots that we’ve come to enjoy over the past 11 years (Insane how it has been 11 years since the first one, I remember seeing it and having such crush on Shia LaBeouf haha)

1987, and Bumblebee must find refuge in a little town in Cali, and that is when he meets Charlie, a heartbroken 17-year-old trying to find herself again after the loss of her beloved father.

It’s a fantastic roller coaster of robot fights, supreme music, and young love with a splash of humor. It has everything and a little bit more, strongly recommended. 8/10
