In 1987, in a small sanctuary on the California beach, Bumblebee the Autobot returns to an adventure that seems to be the strongest for him. The Autobot meets a girl named Charlie who is 18 years old and trying to help him. Charlie begins to encourage Bumblebee the Autobot, but events may change when he discovers a battle.
Nostalgic without being mindlessly retro; a sweet, heartfelt girl-and-her-alien-robot-car action-adventure buddy dramedy that hits all the right notes. Hailee Steinfeld is terrific, and there's not a whiff of Michael Bay to be found.
