Bumblebee the Autobot tries in this exciting adventure to be in a shelter in a small coastal town in California. On the other hand, there is a girl named Charlie, 18 years old trying to help him and trying to find her place in the world. Charlie begins to encourage the robot, but soon the robot finds out that there is a battle to take place.
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.
