"Bumblebee," the sixth film in the series, is a stand-alone origin story written with disarming skill by Christina Hodson and starring Hailee Steinfeld.While hard-core fan-boys may complain it's too soft, this film may turn out to be the perfect way to save "Transformers". If the film seems to have that kid-sized, wistful '80s Steven Spielberg feel, it may be because Spielberg serves as an executive producer.Hodson is the first woman to originate and write a film in the $4.3 billion "Transformers" franchise and she proves extremely capable of blending loud action with human pathos, not to mention tart with sweet, though she gets dangerously close to maudlin when it comes to Charlie's dad. After so many over-the-top battles in the metal-thumping series, it's fun here to watch Bumblebee commit more small-scale mayhem, like egging someone's car.Younger viewers are advised to watch the 1985 iconic film "The Breakfast Club" -- it comes up several times rather brilliantly, especially in one final scene with Cena that refreshingly doesn't go trite.
