Bumblebee seems to be the best
transformers movie so far
The first Bumblebee reviews have recently been published and they seem to be overwhelmingly positive in general. A lot of them declare the movie the best one amongst others from the Transforms franchise. There had been a lot of speculation around the problem of spin-off interplay with the main story till the movie was premiered. Michael Bay has managed to demonstrate that the iconic Hasbro toys can be transformed into something enormously financially successful.
This new movie goes back in history to tell us more about the Transformers universe. It takes place back in 1980s, when Transformers were one of the most popular parallel universes on our entire planet. It turned out later, that fans have always wanted to see a deeper story rather than a ton of robotic action, which makes it look more like a massacre. According to the recently published reviews, Bumblebee is just the movie to suit those needs.
Many reviewers actually compare Bumblebee to the rest of the movies from Transformers universe. Peter Debruge, for instance, said that Bumblebee was the movie that fans had wanted since the 1980s. Not only Debruge but other critics also give credit to what Michael Bay has managed to do it right. Another specialist, Jim Vejvoda from IGN, claimed that movie was a sort of “emotional journey” Bumblebee a very satisfying action movie, eligible for the whole family. Currently there are 12 reviews for the movie on Rotten Tomatoes, all of them being positive; as a result we have 100% positive Fresh Rating from the website. Another critic, Justin Lowe from the Hollywood Reporter, said this about Bublebee.
“By taking the Transformers universe in a new, more intimate character-driven direction, screenwriter Christina Hodson (who has the Suicide Squad Harley Quinn sequel Birds of Prey up next) plays directly to the franchise’s roots. Skillfully shaping what’s essentially a coming-of-age story for both Charlie and Bumblebee, Hodson layers in a sense of wonder and discovery that effectively recaptures the innovation and energy of the 2007 original. It’s an effective reimagining that also bears a knowing resemblance to classic youth-oriented films from Bumblebee executive producer Steven Spielberg.”
Success of the movie makes it very probable for the future sequels, which, we hope, are likely to appear in the nearest future.
