5 Reasons Why The BumbleBee Movie is a Must See

Hey Cuties,

On Monday the family and I hit up the Regal Gallery Place Stadium for the Bumblebee Movie screening.  The Manchild was most excited about seeing the movie. He is into the Transformers and all about that Autobots vs. the Decepticons. For Babe and I, it was a flashback to our childhood.

Let me start by saying GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!! This movie is kid friendly in a way that the other Transformer movies are not. It is very family friendly and not vulgar at all.

Bumblebee Movie Review

Official synopsis: This pulse-pounding action-packed film is set in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken.  When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

Each of us really enjoyed the movie, and we run the gamut in ages.

#1 This movie is a prequel to the Transformer movies so you get some backstory.

#2 It is action packed but less aggressive than the Transformer movies.

#3 You find out why Bumblebee doesn’t speak.  I totally didn’t know.

#4 It is a feel-good story-line of friendship, love, grief, loyalty, and persistence. The parenting dynamic was one I could relate too.

#5 It is all the things we love about the ’80s! I was singing and dancing to the music. Mr. T cereal makes a cameo, and the fashion was so us back then. P.S. The kids today are totally jocking our 80’s style.

Bumblebee Movie Review

The Cast: The cast was perfect, John Cena [Agent Burns] was hilariously crazy. Stephen Schneider [Stepdad] has a strange funny about him, that cracked me up the entire time. Jason Drucker [Otis] is freaking hilarious, he is classic little brother. As a classic little sister, I totally get it. Jorge Lendeborg Jr. was a new face to me but he is so likable, he is totally the guy next door.

Bumblebee Movie ReviewAuntie Angela Bassett is the voice of Shatter. I knew it was her the minute she started speaking. She was fierce, she took charge and kicked butt and tore up the questions that came later. Ha!

    Fun! My son grew up on Transformer movies so he will go and see this during winter break. Hey, I might even join him.

  2. Ola

    I had heard someone mention this movie, but assumed it to be about something completely different and ignored it. But this kinda sounds like something I might like. So glad I read this. LOL!

  3. Kita Bryant

    I am into Transformers although the last one wasn’t as good. I am going to take my son and his friends to see this one because that’s the car he wants when he is old enough to afford it

  4. Janelle

    Oohh yess!! You got me super pumped. I remember how much I (my hubby and our daughters) enjoyed just watching The Transformers. Now that was GOOD! This looks / sounds even better.

  5. Tiffany Haywood

    Okay, so this is on our list anyway because we are all complete Transformer fans and love Bumblebee. I’ve been waiting for his solo movie since the first Transformers. That said, I had no idea Angela Bassett was the voice of Shatter – now I definitely can’t wait! This may be one of our Christmas Break picks.

    OMG I didnt know Angela Bassett did a voice in the film. I would definitely go see this movie in the future.

    I really want to see this movie. I am going to have to make time to see it. It looks like a great movie. Your stamp of approval makes me want to see it even more. I love Angela Bassett!

    When my son was younger he loved anything that was related to transformers.

  9. Nadalie Bardo

    I am loving all these reasons why we should all watch Bumblebee! I hear there’s also a super cute explainer for how he got his name Bumblebee.

    I have seen the other movies. I have to check this one out. I’m debating on seeing it at the movies though lol.

  11. Jaye

    I always love these kinds of movies and I l had no idea from the previews that Angela was involved. I am looking forward to seeing it

    This seems like a good one. My little one is too young for movies just yet, but I’ll add it to my list.
