The First BUMBLEBEE Reactions Are In, And It’s Good News For Transformers Fans

The Transformers franchise was in desperate need of some good morale. The last film, 2017’s Transformers: The Last Knight, was universally panned, with just a 16% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and was also the lowest-grossing film of franchise. Luckily, director Travis Knight and screenwriter Christina Hodson were on-hand to save the day. With their soft-reboot of the Transformers franchise, Bumblebee, they’ve done something that seemed impossible just last year: Make a Transformers film that is instantly beloved by both critics and fans alike. It’s a Christmas miracle!Bumblebee currently holds a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, and is reaping excellent praise on social media from those lucky enough to attend early screenings.Many of those viewers pointed out the film’s big heart, something missing from recent installments.

Others have noted the film’s humor, calling it “hysterically funny.”

Bumblebee‘s star, Hailee Steinfeld, also received a lot of praise for her performance, as the new guardian of the titular robot.

Many viewers also called Bumblebee the best live-action film of the Transformers saga.

That’s a hefty amount of praise for a franchise that was, until recently, on something like life support. It’s thrilling to have something Transformers-related to be excited about, and we can’t wait to see how Bumblebee plays when it officially hits theaters December 21.
