The story tells of a powerful adventure that took place in 1987 in a shelter in a small coastal town in California, where the robot returns Bumblebee the Autobot. The man begins a new life, where he meets a girl named Charlie who is 18 years old and trying to help him. Charley begins to encourage Bumblebee the Autobot but soon finds out that he will fight against the enemies.
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.
