There is a part of me that wonders just how good Bumblebee can be when there are too many people from the past movies still connected to the movie. Just how much input did they have on the movie? I know we are supposed to say oh well we've got an uprising director so everything will be great but that is the same thing they said about Fantastic Four and GI Joe. I'm not sure if new talent in the director's chair is the cure all that people seem to run with. It might take Paramount booting everyone off the franchise and starting fresh to be the sort of films that can domestically contend with the other studios.
