Such a waste of time .

Boring, slow, predictable and full of cliche dialogues...

Enjoyable from start to finish.

The teenage growing pains and coming of age angst was annoying and had nothing to do with Transformers whatsoever.

All the military characters are as cheesy and cliche as possible.

My immersion was ruined and I was left shaking my head in disbelief 5 minutes into the movie.

Such logical offenses prevent this from truly setting a solid landmark for the reboot of the franchise which is a shame because the movie has quite a bit of charm (save for John Cena's awfully cliched and bland character)

The only reason I'm giving it a 7/10 is simply due to the fact that this is the kind of movie it wants to be, a fun and enjoyable Transformers movie, with nothing much to it.

Critics, in outline, abhorred increasingly each new installment; however, more people exponentially turn up at the movies to strive to understand the superhero-level set-pieces and to elude the heavy-handed, daft, confusing mythology writers and directors made up for every two-hour-plus nonsense on screen with more difficulty and less success.

I thoroughly enjoyed it heaps more than all the other Transformer movies.

Instead of Transformers running around amok there are basically three main transformers in the whole film and it makes things far more exciting.

Repetitive in its moral .

Waste of time .

The main human protagonist is actually enjoyable to watch, and is not yelling annoyingly all the time, this girl can act.

However, despite my disposition, this film about the first transformer to ever reach Earth and establish a base for the rebellion has its share of thrills including rousing battle sequences and well-executed chase scenes.

It's way too cheesy, with alot of long and pointless 'emotional' passages, mostly due to Hailee Steinfeld's interacting with Bumblebee.

Predictable throughout.

There is a good abundance of action in the movie, and it is done with elegance, whereas some of the movies in the actual main franchise seemed to focus more on just random destruction and violence, And the fact that there actually was a proper underlying storyline and plot to supported by the action just made it all the more enjoyable.

Every cliché you could possibly imagine was unironically showcased in this movie.

The movie is action filled, humorous and thrilling.

The movie overall was heartwarming, action packed-ish, and comedic.

Definitely worth the watch.

This was a very good, enjoyable movie because it had an actual, unforced, story line that holds the entire movie together.

The first Transformers film was bold, loud and colourful with jaw dropping visuals but the sequels grew tiresome with ever increasing contrived storylines and the unfunny humour.

this was the worst movie in a loooong time.

Good storyline mixed with the humorous moments made it a enjoyable movie.

It gives some passing lip service to a space war; there is some relativist remark about "traitors" and "rebellion", as well as autobots and deceptacons, but they are just a few splotches of what might be vivid paint to color out the background of an otherwise bland movie.

However this film was different it held a coherent plot, it seemed to have an understanding of the audiences emotional tapestry and most importantly it was an enjoyable film telling a story one could actually understand nae even care about with good performances especially from Hailee Steinfeld who has been pretty excellent in everything I have seen her in most recently 'Spider man into the spider verse' and most notably 'True grit' for which she was nominated for an Oscar.

Thank you so much for making this movie we really enjoyed it and hope we get the chance of watching more of Bumblebee and the transformers.

I'm not as well read on the toys, shows, or comics, but the movies have been examples of "fast food cinema"; where instead of substance and a compelling story, were given constant action scene after action scene set against well shot backdrops along with glorifying the military, bikini girls, and everything macho.

Really enjoyed it.

From that point of view, it's an entertaining movie.

Really entertaining.

An immensely enjoyable Film .

Don't waste your money

Transform and roll-out robot fans in disguise as we have a new and exciting review on our hands, Bumblebee.

Very enjoyable movie!

I enjoyed it as much as all other Transformers movies.

Although the movie has moderate violence and no nudity, sexual content, or profanity, it keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Overly hyped and boring to watch

Please don't waste your time seeing this.

The movie has a sense of Joy , is very enjoyable and has beautiful and nostalgic 80s vibes.

Bumblebee is possibly one of the most predictable, formulaic movies I have ever seen.

The comedy in it makes the movie a little more enjoyable to watch especially with younger kids.

First 10 minutes is all you need to watch then nothing happens after that .

Honestly, the first Transformers movie was pretty good, and they pretty quickly went down hill from there, to the point that if I were to see another Transformers movie hit the screens, I'll do my best not to go and watch it, and try to remember how much of a waste of time the whole endeavour is.

An entertaining film for fans and youngsters.

We've already heard this story a thousand times, but let's face it: no one on planet Earth can resist clever, poignant feel-good movies, no matter time, place or mood, this always enjoyable sub-genre will get followers in large part for how easy it is to identify yourself and get along with the characters.

I absolutely loved watching this film and found it very enjoyable and entertaining to watch and preferred watching this film to the other Transformers which i have watched.

The plot is dull.

The plot was rather weak and dull.

Boring, predictable, shoddy writing...

All scenes predictable....

The key storylines and themes are boring and predictable and although this movie is PG, some of the plot inconsistencies are unforgivable.

Was a waste of time .

Boring tropes you've seen 100 times, the beat of the story was so predictable i considered walking out.

Nothing happened.

I enjoyed it.

It brings the pacing down because the movie can't decide if it wants to be an action thriller or a personal movie and even though it kind of worked out in the end, a more fast paced approach would've worked in the movie's favor (Like maybe introduce the two decepticons with a fight scene instead of the end of the fight or something like the Helicopter transformer in T1 which was a cool action scene).

Predictable story, non-sensical plot, unnecessary cheesy moments.

Some acting is better than others and comparisons can be drawn from other movies but it is still definitely worth watching.

More about a teenager coming of age & learning what is important instead of another rock em sock em installment of a franchise trying to continue on...

Instead they rather have two politically correct and drab deceptions acting as bounty hunters.

I'd have also preferred more "decepticons" come and have Prime show up for the finale but I suppose that also sounds cliché.

Very Lame Movie, So predictable, No energy, There is zero connection between the characters and the story line.

Even the film's pace and duration felt snappy and fast (Unlike Transformers The Last Knight- again, poop).

Bumblebee instead is slower-paced, taking its time to tell a story about a grieving, outcast girl connecting with a lost creature from another world.

The acting and storyline was disjointed and boring.

This movie is not just about robots fighting but there are funny scene, heartfelt scene and intense fighting scene.

Sadly the story is beyond formulaic.

A very entertaining one.

Most notably, there is a confusing non-love interest/love interest introduced an hour into the film that goes absolutely nowhere, which feels more like a studio mandated element, rather than an organic occurrence.

It's enjoyable.

I thoroughly enjoyed it the entire time even though it wasn't perfect.

I actually found myself getting bored halfway through which shouldn't happen and has never happened before during a transformers movie.

Enjoyable .

Previous films suffered from the razzle dazzle of visual overload using teams of CGI-heavy robots engaging in shaky-camera combat heavy acrobatics over sprawling cities.

She works through her diving fear at the end (there was a pointless scene where she gets scared and can't dive...

What a beauty of CGI that made live the action and of course,enjoyable soundtrack.

Cliche and predictable don't even begin to describe it, they are basically compliments that better movies get.

Who says emotional slow cliche dialogue at time of life and death or when fight is going on and even if movies do pick such circumstances atleast it should be convincing.

Those movies have great special effects but they are the empty calorie sugar pop of movies.

The action scenes were typical and boring.

This film has as much action as any Transformers film that preceded it, but it also has an engaging relationship between Charlie and Bumblebee.

It gives some truly enjoyable and funny moments, whilst also having a heartfealt story behind it.

Enjoyable combination of prequel/spin-off/reboot set in the late 1980s, focusing on intrepid Autobot scout Bumblebee who's sent from Cybertron to Earth on a vital mission.

Terrible terrible TERRIBLE story line; full of cliches and an overly predictable story line.

It's boring, unrealistic, painfully unoriginal, unmemorable and alltogether a true successor to the shallow modern hollywood blockbusters.

Unexpected good film of the year.

The story line is just emotionless and bland.

Background music ranged from poor to just pointless generic period music.

It became boring to watch the Transformers transform.

Very bland .

Don't waste your time .

Nothing happened throughout the movie.

The visual effects of "Bumblebee" are stunning like the opening battle sequence on the Transformers Home World - Cybertron.

A bit boring.. .

Cena was more robot than bumblebee, no story, horrible acting, I wasted time and money on this.

I see people complaining that it focuses on the girl too much, others complaining it's predictable or the plot isn't the best.

Don't waste your time or money.

Cliche, poor scripted, horrible dialogue and acting .

It's very entertaining to watch.

Watch the movie, firstly, to see how the girl discovers the robot in car and how exciting her life becomes with bumble bee(robot) and secondly, spectacular visual effects with typical 'Transformers' fight scenes.

Snore .

This makes for just a fun enjoyable movie.

A great movie: With the last few transformers movies seeming more and more repetitive and rehashed.

At its best, this movie is as much a coming of age story and John Hughes style teenage romance as a sci-fi blockbuster.

Heartwarming story, but seems tailored to be more enjoyable to the 8-12 year old's as an upgrade from the 80's animated series.

Yeah, that is basically what this movie was, a waste of two hours, plus the half hour spent walking to the cinema and back again - that is time that I am never going to get back again.

Simple and enjoyable

It was enjoyable and kiddo loved it and I'm happy about the whole evening.


Same young girl struggling to come to terms with her fathers passing (missing/dead/MIA etc.). Super predictable...

Fun and Entertaining!!.

The 80s music played in this music gives it an 80s feel but the overall movie is ruined with bland humor with an absolute shoddy story line that made me wish it was finished already because a boring day in my life is more entertaining than this movie.

This movie is so great, enjoyable, full of emotions, and makes me to forget all the previous transformers movies.

+It's bold, visually stunning, fast paced and positive.

A lot of time was spent focusing on the girl's life and it was boring actually.

It looks weird without explosions and cities getting destroyed, If you are going in expecting it to be action packed then you will be disappointed.

But sadly very formulaic .

This movie is definitely a welcome change from the non-stop & pointless fight sequences!

Don't get what their problems were because this film was actually good in comparison to the others which were way too long & boring!

Too much expectations, too much hype, but gets the boring one at the end.

Moving on, the first fighting scene on earth is intense with a vintage Bumblebee type scenario where he always comes up with the goods to destroy foes bigger and better than him via a moment of magic.

As he should have been all along, Bumblebee was smaller and far weaker than in the previous movies, which makes for a more compelling and relatable hero who is courageous even when overpowered and outnumbered.

super, and twisted it into highest bidding propaganda, then Transformers have actually gone the other way - from Bay's rather...

Waste of money waste of time.

Anyway, I just wanted to share how I thought this movie was very enjoyable in contrast to the negative reviews.

Good old action packed movie and definitely a satisfactory one.

There were so many similarities that it makes this movie boring and unoriginal.

That being said, the final big battle, which mixes in Transformers and humans, is surprisingly engaging.

Don't waste your time or money with this horrible teen romance movie .

One of the worst movies ever.

Your kids will leave the theater with visions of Bumblebee merch dancing in their heads.

Bumblebee is a boring film.

This movie is corny feminist propaganda in a franchise geared towards boys.

A proof of how utterly disposable this character is for the plot is that before the final confrontation he volunteers to be left behind which is pointless as you would see if you've watched the movie.

Besides, due to Mr. Bay's pyrotechnic filmmaking, it was exciting to imagine such a story starring Bumblebee, in the 80s.

made it that much more enjoyable.

Bumblebee's script, written by Christina Hodson-an endearing lead performance by Hailee Steinfeld-and a healthy dose of eighties and G1 Transformers nostalgia made it quite enjoyable.

+Action packed, adrenaline rush battles that will immerse you into the watching experience.

Now admittedly this movie can be pretty predictable sometimes.

Storyline is slow and I mistake to compare with previous Transformer movies, which makes it too slow for me.

They were more exhausting than exciting.

As the title says this was a thoroughly enjoyable experience!

" American singer Hailee Steinfeld has shaped an acting career brimming with victories, with an Oscar nomination for her practically flawless performance as Mattie Ross in Coen Brothers' "True Grit" and one Golden Globe for her unique Nadine in "The Edge of Seventeen," my favorite coming of age film- Bo Burnham's highly praised "Eighth Grade" is still waiting in my bucket list.

Parents should know that there are still intense action sequences, a teen romance, and parental loss and remarriage.

But if you've seen the first TFs movie its kinda confusing with the Bumblebee movie in the timelime.

Much of the story and the characters are formulaic and without a lot of story to them.

Just another Family Friendly Cliche with some movie in it.

Very predictable & very boring.

It's very enjoyable and the whole family could watch it.

Scraping the no story, crinchy jokes, hard to follow action, and over the top CGI these movies are known for.

Well worth the watch.

The action in this film was very intense, the bonding between Bumblebee and the Humans was also brilliant.

No story.

I liked how it started, but after 10 mins i got bored till the end, like nothing actually happen.

And, the entire movie has kind of a slow build.

it's like the worst teen romance movie you've ever seen combined with the worst Transformer movie and about 1 hour and 54 minutes too long :( Easily the most boring movie I've seen from 2018 and I watch a ton of TV now.

The movie is filled with a bunch of small jokes which makes the movie keep a very enjoyable state.

It isn't just a lot of special effects fight scenes, but an entertaining and engaging movie.

Worst movie for a long time.

All in all I really enjoyed it.

It has an mediocre and cliche plot.

Of course the robot action sequences are visually superb, if scientifically dubious, but what makes this film really enjoyable, and elevates it from all its siblings in the frnachise, is the way the characters interwine and cover a lot of interesting emotional ground.

But it's very good action that gets things off to a rousing start.

Certain continuity, pace and editing errors should be attributed to editor Paul Rubell, however, as a coherent whole, it is a resonant, overly enjoyable popcorn film that will delight all kinds of audiences, even the devotees of Bay and his exuberant filmmaking style.

The dynamic between Charlie and her family is predictable and one dimensional.

To those people who are saying this movie is predictable, are you out of your mind?

WowTravis Knight has cracked the code that Michael Bay couldn't in 5 whole films, and boy was this film a surprise but more importantly really entertaining.

The spectacle was barely engaging.

I enjoyed it a lot.

The 80s setting is almost too in your face, but I enjoyed it well enough.

I believe the bees that were shown are American Worker Bees, I really did think they were going to show bumblebees and got excited when i saw it but they're far too long to be bumblebees.

Poor writing and predictable!


The opening scene is intense, we really haven't see much of the cybertron in the previous movies, so it was nice to see some of the fighting there.

This is definitely and exciting moment for real transformer fans .

Transformers prequel, exciting and well-executed .

A fantastic film, full of great actors, a compelling story.

The titular character of Bumblebee gets a story to himself and it's a cliched-yet-entertaining one!

Bumblebee is a highly entertaining look at a prequel involving the character bumblebee who seeks haven on earth from the decepticons, and he develops a deep friendship with a teenage girl along the way.

Michael Bay if it was the problem in the saga of transformers but not a new director I do not give anything new to the franchise is more I risk saying that he did too cliche , a person finds a being that is not from this planet and they become friends and together they will find a way to help each other, and while they have fun moments and entertaining action scenes that are not explosions every moment, the film does not meets all expectations, Travis Knight as director is very detailed to the transformations aua movements and details are much better than what has been done so far, sadly those details are visual and not plot, Hailee Steinfeld acts quite well and John Cena does a job that It makes me think that it is the same type of paper of Dwayne The Rock Johnson, in conclusion it is a film that although it is the best of transformers, the plot of these characters is in second flat to focus on topics too hackneyed, entertaining just that the perfect excuse for a child out wanting in a Christmas Bumblebee.

This is a very predictable and borring kids movie NOT Transformers.

Predictable and cliche characters, Jon Cena is terrible and I was bored.

Good movie, I enjoyed it...

The story was not that bad, but not high standing, and very predictable.

The set-pieces, as opposed to those of its predecessors, like the film itself, are much more restrained and compelling, not so groovy or showy because of a realism beautifully rendered with impressive digital effects that, even without high-resolution IMAX screens, endows action sequences with humanizing character.

The relationship building is slow to watch and difficult to engage with.

Overall, Bumblebee is a very enjoyable (albeit somewhat predictable) piece, which I highly recommend you watch in a cinema because it's very visually appealing.

I enjoyed it all, the acting, the action and really loved the VW beetle angle.

Film still has its share of absurdities and becomes conventional as it nears its conclusion, but the ride there is more entertaining than it should be, with classic music from the 80s thrown in for good measure.

Bumblebee however was an enjoyable action film and after the continuous disappointment of the Transformers franchise is a breath of fresh air!

Fight choreography between Bumblebee and two Decepticons in the final part is quite enjoyable and well-choreographed.

Don't waste your time...

David Fear Rolling Stone The talented, expressive Steinfeld and a nuanced script elevate this prequel from "unnecessary" to "surprisingly poignant and entertaining.

A Waste of Money.

The others have been overlong, dull, and even dumb.

It is predictable, bland and boring.

Acting was terrible, storyline was predictable, CG was garbage, and the list goes on.

But I can't ignore the other aspects and I have to explain 2\10 rating, something I give only to the worst movies imaginable, because 1\10 is literally only good for "just cause" rating, same as 10\10.

Is a terrible movie i saw it based on IMDB points.. But really don't waste your time.

The movie felt like a dull, generic, contrived 80's film at times, complete with high school bullies, an idiot military and a useless love interest to develop Charlie's story.

It's transformers but seems to have been made into "Girl finds herself after finding a robot, a coming of age tale" They seemed to have found the most white looking black/Mixed man in America to play the love interest, it's getting to the point were you can guess this from the cast line up alone, inevery single modern film, like there's an agenda...

Conclusion: All being said I really loved this movie, it felt new and exciting for the series and had a good plot and cast.

Luckily he did a damn good job in making a movie that is actually watchable and enjoyable.

So when I first saw the trailer for this movie, I had zero interest, but knew I would probably get dragged to it by my buddies.

The Fox Kids had much stronger and exciting content than this...

Jumps from one Bay cliche into the other accompanied by pompous special fx to mask the lack of proper acting.

A coming of age story about a young girl and the stray dog she meets and adopts.

Unbelievably boring.

Bumblebee has heart and action, and well worth the watch.

I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see a fun popcorn flick.

Very suspenseful but exciting!

Transformers has become a dull, cheesy young teen girl romantic drama with some robot scenes.

Really enjoyed it.

Another cliche coming of age story, this time with robots.

Don't waste your time watching this rubbish.

Good entertaining movie...

In the bitter end, you're given a real waste, of waste of time.

This was sooo slow, so unnesseary dialogue and no fun at all.

While having a predictable character arc, John Cena did a nice job with his role.

Wish it would've been a bit more serious instead of it always having to be the teenage underdog cliché, with military cliché personnel that only wants to kill and experiment on everything even tho autobots are vastly superior.

The fight scenes in general were all very exciting.

The 80s references are nonstop and tedious.

The plot was incredibly predictable - really lazy writing with weak story line.

generally got bored and starting to wish they would end.

Predictable and easy plot, boring characters and action scenes, nothing new from the old transformers movies.

I give Bumblebee a thoroughly entertaining 7/10.

The acting was ridiculously bad, the scenes idiotic and boring, and the doofus stepdad is so cliche, tired and extremely unfunny.

T.. This partnership is the film's beating heart and draws us in as the pair's bond deepens - she training him like a giant, five-ton puppy and he filling the void left yawning by her loss.

The balance keep switching,which makes the movie hard to follow.


Worth the watch.

Full of cliché.

fun, engaging, and full of heart...

A boring Transformers movie.

The story, while predictable, serves the movie and is fleshed out in a very enjoyable way.

It's very very very boring.. I stopped watching after 45 mins.

Once as he is crashing to earth and one as he is fighting the other robot.. And man was it a boring cliche movie about a teen girl who does not fit in...


Average action scenes, but good personnel scenes, all this makes it rather enjoyable and engaging.

The movie was soooo boring, acting was horrible especially by Jon Cena (and don't get me started on THAT solute at the end where I felt I wanted to actually slap myself).

Nothing happen that we didn't knew it give a gimple of yellow car past as have seen in transformer movie ...

Stunning visuals, great action and (surprisingly) "good" human performances.

This movie was below average, cliche, and downright stupid at points.

This movie is basically a more boring clone of the Transformers 1 movie (they basically copypasted large parts of the T1 plot in some scenes in a way), except with way fewer cool robot fights and way more deaf spots, where the characters just stand around and do nothing.

The intro was so boring I lost interest instantly and started writing this review.

Full of forced and amateur dialogue one would expect a 12 year old to post on her Wattpad, this movie is obviously overhyped and a literal waste of my time and money.

Further on many popular 80s hits (as the movie is set in 1987) kept coming up which added to that, but that was only distracting enough to make a mediocre movie enjoyable.

Beyond boring, lame jokes, terrible acting.

I went to the cinema with my 12 years old daughter, and even she was bored with the movie.

Boring, predictable and stupid .

If your looking for a film that is just a nice simple enjoyable watch, it's worth it.

There were some points where some people will feel the pacing was too slow, and some things occurred which just didn't makes sense.

This also means that there are moments of slower paces when Bumblebee gets to know Hailee's character.

long and boring.

The plot was predictable.

Bumblebee is just another boring transformer movie.

Another over dramatic, cheap, cliche teenagers' movie this time with robots.

The climactic fight sequence between Bee, the Decepticons, and the hopelessly ineffective Cena is at least enjoyable.

The story is so predictable, the dialogs are so cringe and bad and nothing exciting never happens, the acting is bad except for Hailee.

Wow what a waste of time!

you just need to get used to a transformers movie that have a more strong story so maybe you'll kinda feel bored in the middle of the movie.

Jack Burns - played with intermittent charm by John Cena - just barely works as a character, while everyone around him is either forgettably bland or memorably idiotic.

I did not have very high expectations for this film, especially with its trailer, which I thought it was a boring film.

Whereas some of the films seemed to be working to introduce new Transformer Toy lines, this movie seemed more focused on entertaining.

The relationship between Charlie and Bumblebee was quite emotional in parts, especially when they had to part company towards the end, but her ridiculous family who didn't really seem that bothered when their house was totally destroyed by Bumblebee, was a pointless addition to the cast.

The CGI seemed worse than it was in 2007, the story was boring and lead nowhere, adding all this together I was just happy when it was finally over.

Very predictable and immature plot.

Although that isn't saying much given the franchises track record, Knight (with Hodson's terrific script) crafts a genuinely fun film that packs exciting action and (in the biggest plot twist of the franchise) genuine emotion.

Enjoyed it.

I appreciate them trying to include a heartfelt story in an action movie, but this one is very cliché.

Really enjoyable, no over the top explosions, interesting story (reboot), no silly shiny bots, the bots are back to how they should look, the only love interest was with both the leads; Bumblebee and the girl.

Very weak scenario, immortal Bumbelbee and boring actions...

I even found this film to be more light hearted & more engaging with the characters being more developed, you actually felt for them!

Bumblebee is very enjoyable.

Nonetheless, I enjoyed it.

With a good cast (besides john cena) and a look into bumblebees first encounter with the human race is exciting, funny and most of all interesting.

Not good, waste of time.

Nostalgia aside, the action sequences were totally believable and gripping.

Full of excellent action scenes, great effects and an extremely exceptional and loyal visual adaptation, fantastic sound design and cinematography and Transformers designed with their own characteristics and exciting, finally giving a little life to the robberies.

By far the most enjoyable Transformers film of the lot.

Since china allows only few Hollywood movies that satisfy particular conditions (like Chinese investment or Chinese actors etc) to get screen time in china, which gives access to huge sums of ticket money, many Hollywood titles that have been overproduced and have outrun their charm (like Transformer) sell their production right to Chinese production houses who then produce the most cliche and stereotypical movies for Chinese audiences that will have slow motion action, overused drama and dialogues and dead childish plots.

The action scenes were bland, nothing we haven't seen before.

This movie does not tell the story of bumblebee, it tells the story of Charlie, and is filled with every cliche in the book.

This is something that was unexpected from a Transfomers film.

But it's John Cena, as walking side of beef Agent Burns, who proves the most flat-out enjoyable, hurling macho epithets as all '80s villains should, while cocking a knowing eyebrow at his uneasy alliance with Bee's hunters: "They literally call themselves 'Decepticons'," he deadpans.

An absolute entertainer and good cgi made this film worth watching.

It was such a boring and predictable experience, and I hate when it happens.

The love interest predictable and programmed.

This film is an excellent attempt to demonstrate the capacity and full potential of a well-made Transformers film, however, it falls a little behind with the boring narrative, full of opportunistic moments and clichés, including performances that stay flat on the floor.

Plot: it is very predictable and doesn't bring anything new.

It's an unwatchable super corny overacted crap movie.

But this movie has some very obvious cliche's.

With some battle sequences that are either on par or even surpassing the other Transformers movies, the adrenaline pumping action is fierce and engaging, although a bit dizzying.

I felt that The Last Knight was nearly unwatchable after watching it the first time.

It's an engaging turn from Steinfeld, and one that imbues this prequel with a poignancy not even attempted in the previous instalments.

Unfortunately the film is let down only by a weak and predictable story that loses all its momentum after about 30 mins or so.

-Having 0 emotions about being put in the garbage bin (probably adrenaline blocked her smell senses?

But still the movie felt bland for me,because this movie falls short than the Bayformers in the music department.

Really boring .


The parents are annoying as ever, the jokes are as boring as ever, and the plot holes are as big as ever.

I was bored out of my mind watching this film.

We know every script have some flaws but how could you have transformers in a movie and bore the audience!!

This movie was sweet and funny and action packed and broke my heart - in an E.

It was thrilling seeing so many of our favorite characters and meeting a few new ones.

I could watch this movie over and over again one of the best prequels I've seen the Transformers series I grown up with this from the very beginning is the best best action packed everything was to the T

The action is poor, the characters are cliched, and the overall film is boring.

In the previous series, everything is about stunning special effects which amaze only children.

I wouldn't call it a keeper,but still enjoyable

Nothing feels right about this movie, and I feel that in a rush to give this (a seemingly independent story) a happy ending, they went all outs to make it as cheesy and cliche as possible, to the point where one starts thinking what am I doing sitting in this theatre and wasting time on this nonsensical drama movie.

After a long time i found a transformers movie so entertaining.

Other than that the rest of this movie is the usual bland safe rubbish you've come to expect from movies these days.

4,3 from 10, The movie was a waste of time, they ruined transformers.

An entertaining family movie .

At the end, it was way too predictable.

Mostly boring.

There are some plotholes, the acting certainly wasn't bad but won't win any Oscars either, and there were a number of cliché scenes to build tension or provide comic relief that didn't work for me because...

Fun coming of age movie .

It shows this through the fight scenes and things like that, like towards the end of the movie there's a fight scene with Bumblebee and the decepticons where he finally defeats them, and the whole time you're on the edge of your seat because it builds up to that moment and you don't want Bumblebee to lose the fight.

All in all its 80% out of 100 or 8 out of 10 its a really entertaining film and a really hope they do another film like this again, that time I will be waiting in line to see it with anticipation.


Save your money.

You know, not contemporary art, but the term for things that people currently treat as art, because quality got boring.

The only thing right about this film was the 80's setting, and the design of the robots; seeing Optimus Prime in his proper form brought a tear to my eye; it's just that the rest of the film was tedious to watch and felt like a straight to DVD kids movie.

Don't waste your time or money!!.

Travis Knight probably wants to put in some elements to appeal to the young, but all those elements seem slow, meaningless, and boring.

Overall, Bumblebee is a fresh entrance in the Transformers franchise and can mark an exciting new direction for the franchise.

What I am saying, if you say this movie is predictable doesn't make this movie bad, worthy of 2 star.

I enjoyed Bumblebee, which is more than I can say for the last few Bayformers movies (I actually have yet to watch The Last Knight), but I'd have loved it had they been able to marry the charming coming of age teen stuff w/what should be the meal to its desert.

Don't waste your time .

Very enjoyable .

The Most Boring Transformer franchise ever .

The army men are cliche and there's not enough action (not necessarily fights).

The cinema was empty to start with, which then further decreased as the movie progressed delivering awkward lines and scenes by the truck load.

Unfortunately, this movie is boring as hell, it doesn't even stick with the previous Transformers background, plot is absent.

The pacing was slow, there was no story to fill in the time, just a bunch of driving around.

Coming of age?

Literally the worst movie i have ever watched .

The story is very strong, has alot of heart and doesnt beat you over the head with loud explosions, racial stereotypes and pointless side plots that go nowhere.

It's brought to life with a fantastically deft hand which allows the flick's robotic battles to actually be exciting, as they should have been from the very beginning, mainly because they're consistently well-choreographed - not to mention legible - and feature actual characters, regardless of their metallic nature.

This movie was so slow and ended on an anticlimactic ending so just a slow build of talking to nothing not worth the time or money unless you need a nap

Surprisingly enjoyable, fun, well rounded.

From the movie starting I was entertained from the fight scene to seeing Hailee steinfeld stunning performance with this Mechanical Beast Beetle I was totally impressed in which this franchise had changed from a blockbuster Michael Bay CAR CRASH MOVIE to a family friendly movie with a interesting storyline I was so happy it had been done right .

" Save your money and watch The Iron Giant on Netflix.

This entire plot and story was horribly predictable, and literally just one cliche piled on top of the other.

Painfully repetitive, full of cliched emotions and abundance of bland actors so repulsive, I am thinking why I did not walk out.

Honestly, if it wasn't for my brother actually wanting to see this film, I would have been hard pressed to actually get out of my seat, walk down to the cinemas, and waste two hours of my life watching this rubbish.


The only thing that has me puzzled is the continuity as there's confusion over whether or not this is a reboot or a prequel given some conflicting elements.

Not that the occasional crudeness of Bay's movies should be an indicator of quality, but it made it so that the target audience was just mostly for the testosterone and adrenaline-filled, instead of the more universal appeal that Transformers should go for.

Hailee Steinfeld was rerally stunning in her performance on this movie.

This film is entertaining because it has a good plot, emotional elements and great visuals.

Of course this movie is predictable.

Honestly, I would have walked out of it didn't seem like my younger brother enjoyed it.

It's good, I wouldn't be ashamed to own it, but Hailee Steinfeld is just kind of a boring, odd actress that holds the movie back.

The story itself was pretty straight forward no plot twists that dramatically change the course of the film.

The live action version of #TheIrongiant 😛 This is a good movie to pass some time, funny sometimes and predictable most of the times.

While it's still an enjoyable movie, it isn't everything it could have been.

Bumblebee, however, breathes life back in to the series - it's thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish and the cast are amazing, particularly Hailee Stenfield as Charlie.

The biggest one being that this is a familiar story and the beats are predictable.

Other than that the film was more enjoyable than all of the other Transformer films since the first.

What a waste of time.

Most disappointing was the dialogue which was cringe worthy because it was so cliche and unimaginative.

My most absolute favourite and most thrilling thing I got from this movie is the G1 (Generation 1 for non Transformers geeks) references to the original cartoons.

I can see how the sequels will be perfect comics, but how they will also be as bland as your first boiled bowl of rice.

Don't waste your time watching it, am sure u have better things to do or sleep

Having watched the previous 5 films & be disappointed by the last 3 due to them being too long, too confusing & simply boring I was a bit skeptical with this one.

Some scenes are simply repetitive and I feel not cut smoothly to be cohesive.

What a waste of money!!.

Was thinking of a worst movie for 2018.. "luckily" I found it just in time.

The film was ok, I enjoyed it, also,enjoyed the fact I could see the battle scenes with the robots for once rather than being a cgi mess - well done in slowing the scenes down.

The only weaknesses i found , were that some minnor characters were a little cliché, and in the end there´s a big action sequence, in terms of script it could have been better resolved.

The screenplay was awesome but I leef Jhon Should be more action packed and the more fighting & action should be added in this move .

I have enjoyed a rich 114 minutes every second, the characters are sympathetic, the actors are excellent, everything works like watches, the exciting story of building a relationship between Bumblebee and Charlie, there are a few Autobots and Decepticons and it is the best transformers movie.

However Knight and screenwriter Christina Hodson have managed to make a film with a script that is funny, enjoyable, action packed and damn entertaining all in under 2 hours.

Horrible, Cliche .

An entertaining film that shows us a brighter and more human future for the saga.

It was cliche upon cliche with oh-so-typical American characters and offered nothing new to the franchise.

The whole movie is predictable from the start.

"Unforgettable" scenarist Christina Hodson's cookie-cutter screenplay is predictable pablum.

And the pacing is quite slow.

This movie is mainly about the relationship between Bumblebee and protagonist Charlie (and a good chunk is just mostly about charlie and her teenage problems..), and since no doubt at least two sequels will be made, this rather slow start did not bother me.

So really to make a good film you need a straightforward plot, with engaging characters.

And the previews of those kind of cute but then at the movie went on it was a terrible waste of time.

But when they are on Earth, yawn.

I've really enjoyed the Transformers movies that preceded Bumblebee, they were tough, action packed, funny and never dull.

Cliche .

I just got back from seeing this in theater, and I was dragged to see this.

I wanted to look away or leave the theater!!

It´s a sweet, funny, action packed blockbuster, it´s definitively different and superior to the last installments.

The catalog is dead boring and everything is extremely predictable and ticks every single box when it comes to classic movie scenes:The high school popular kids making fun of a dead relative.

The movie had such lovely positive energy and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Almost all of the other live action Transformers movies gave audiences no time to connect with the characters, were filled with long action sequences to make up for lack of story and felt like a competition to see how much product placement they could ram into a film.

It's a highly enjoyable breath of fresh air and I'd recommended it to even those who have grown tired of seeing the 'Transformers' on the big-screen, especially since this seems like a soft reboot of sorts.

So happy I didnt waste my money seeing this in theaters!!!

Lots of dialogue, very little action and a certified snoozer city.

The movie is enjoyable enough for anyone to watch, even my mom liked it.

It just the first transformers but boring and nothing to do with the transformers trilogy.

Such lazy writing, every cliché imaginable, cookie cutted together.

It's entertaining and knows how much to give before taking the toys away.

The Herbie turns out to be Bumblebee, who has forgotten who he is, and finding out is a super fun, funny, warm and exciting trip.

The Decepticons, the movie seems a bit of a mess but it all comes together with a final showdown, which was pretty intense.

It's worth seeing and pretty darn entertaining.

I enjoyed it and I'm not a transformer fan .

At the beginning was intense that I was in to it.

The plot was so predictable and the writers didn't even attempt to match up with the first Transformers movie.

Blah blah snore.

Worst Movie Ever .

Soooo boring and it doesn't follow the timeline very well.

One of the worst movies that I have ever watched .

It's a classic coming of age tale set in the world of the Transformers and it works.

Thoroughly enjoyable for children while leaving adults wanting something more .

Story line very slow and predictable.

The dialogue is super stupid and most of the moments are very predictable.

Luckily a large amount of time is spent on Charlie and her (mostly family) issues, which is boring to watch but it ensures positive critic reviews and the pretentious upvote of people who watch a movie with giant robots from another planet for the "character development", so it keeps the franchise alive and kicking for future instalments.

Save your money.

It has no plot, no structure.

There are seeds of greatness in this movie and Hailee makes it worth watching.

Great for kids, boring for adults .

Too much cliche things on plot, lack of action sequences.

The story however, is something that's filled with cliches and a lot of the side characters are just bland.


A simple waste of money!

Coz here you aint getting enough action packed fun.

Unlike previous director Michael Bay, best known for his films overuse of explosions, military involvement, bland character development, Grotesque slow-motion, product placement and reuse of scenes, debuting director Travis Knight brings to life a film that replaces all of the above with a calmer new atmosphere.

So confusing.....

It was easy to see what was happening, and this one was more drawn out.

Started well but got bored halfway through.

Boring .

A horrible childish cliché and a very bad story, with terrible acting.

No one is because Michael Bay's Transformers are boring, over stuffed and dark.

Boring .

Bumble bee dies like 4-5 times and it gets a bit boring.

Just might be the worst movie I've ever seen.

An appalling lack of action, contrived plot points and characters who choose the worst path imaginable for the most obscenely uninspired reasons.

Good kids movies like the LEGO movie and Pixar/dreamworks stuff do a much better job at entertaining at all levels.

Such a cool period of time, slow progression & faultless acting.

For all it's faults and there are a few, you can still turn off your brain for two hours and enjoy a fun, action packed, popcorn flick with good humour and a fun time.

Anyway, it was an enjoyable ride!

and THRILLING Generation 1 references.

I have only fell asleep 2 times in my 50 years of watching movies.

Starting part and end part both are watchable, but in the middle you can feel something boring family drama and a girl-boy drama.

James Dyer Empire 'Bumblebee' is certainly the best example of what this franchise is meant to be, and should it continue on this path, the Transformers can become exciting and enjoyable all over again.

This film also has a great soundtrack, loads of intense action involving Battles between the Autobots and the Decepticons and the humans and is a film which is just completely awesome.

Worst movie ever, dont waste your time or money.

Other than that, the movie was entertaining.

The plot was simple but totally entertaining.

Dont waste your time .

It felt like a bore fest.

Cliche plot from mix of herbie,E.

Overall, a great Transformer movie with plenty of heart with a story that makes the Transformers fun and exciting all over again.

Waste of time!!.

Predictable plot, lot of nonsense dialogues or scene, common conversation.

Cliché after cliché, bad acting, bad plot.

Corny, clichéd, predictable.

Story telling is boring.

Now, this film is highly entertaining, the 80s setting is effectively used (especially in regard to the music), and the CGI is surprisingly effective.

Becuase this was the worst movie i have ever watched in my life.
