Bumblebee meanwhile, is the latest movie in the Transformers universe and by far the best of the robots in disguise franchise. The film stars Hailee Steinfeld as a teenager who buys what she thinks is a broken down VW Bug that she sets about repairing only to find that the car is actually a Transformer, the first transformer on Earth. John Cena plays a military man charged with tracking Bumblebee down. The film has struggled a little at the box office but has earned more than $100 million dollars at the box office and is also a huge success with critics who have given the film 93% positive reviews at
