Bumblebee opens on December 21, but the reviews are already being published and they are very, very positive.
The film, as of now, currently is 100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. The film seems to be closer to Executive Producer Steven Spielberg’s style of filmmaking than the controversial approach Michael Bay brought to the first five Transformers films.
Bumblebee was directed by Travis Knight.

Sixth time’s the charm. #Bumblebee is easily the best Transformers film in the franchise. It’s what they should have been making from the very beginning. Wipe the slate clean and build from here – the Autobots finally have a solid foundation. pic.twitter.com/mSnzKel1Md

#Bumblebee is the best Transformers movie – BY FAR. Beautifully shot, tons of spot-on humor and absolutely brimming with heart. No surprise here but Hailee Steinfeld is fantastic. The whole thing is just an utter delight!

I am shocked at how much I loved #bumblebee! The script is full of heart and character first, the action is impressive even without Bay, Hailee Steinfeld is just great, gen1 designs and the 80s time period is perfect. Better than TF1, and I really like the first Bay film a lot.
