    Once. It didn't blow me away. There were things I really did enjoy like humour, characters or fighting choreography, but it did have a pretty weak story. Honestly, after all the rave I expected another Iron Giant, but it was not the case.

    Once. The only TF movie I watched in theater more than once was ROTF.

    Right about to watch it for the second time. Stoked and this time have a decent buzz to boot.
    This ticket hopefully counts to get us all that cybertron movie we are all waiting for in that much more glory that Bumblebee scenes show. Looks like a lot of people commenting on YouTube vids of the movie are hoping for the same.

    I actually felt similar to you did when this movie was announced. Bumblebee spin-off? Enough BUMBLEBEE already I thought, I don't care about this character.

    I'd maybe give it a shot. I am now a Bumblebee fan.

    Seen it 3 times. I f'ing genuinely love this movie, it pulls on some strings inside of me that even movies i really like aren't able to.

    Once, but ONLY because I haven't found the time or the company to watch it a second time. I will be buying the DVD when it comes out and watching it again and again and again...

    Twice.
    The only movie besides The Force Awakens that I've seen more than once in theaters.

    Saw it alone, then with my brother as his Christmas gift, then we both went a third time with one of our cousins. Then surprise my other cousin said "lemme take you to BB" and I couldn't refuse.

    The 4th watch was the only one where I didn't get actual involuntary tears during the "hug" scene. Smaller scope and predictable story, but executed beautifully. Plus some real surprises.

    • More Optimus than expected, and a KICKASS Peter Cullen performance, he's still got it 110%
    • Seriously well executed emotional depth. The humans were all fine to great. No "bads".
    • And the action, while sparing, was just so fucking tight. All three of Bee's 1v1s in this movie are among my favorite Transformers fights of all time. The choreography, sense of weight, the VISCERAL BLOODLUST that the Decepticons have, and the fact that Bee wasn't OP. He was scrappy, resourceful, and killed all 3 in unique and interesting ways.
    • Shatters creepy fucking smirk.
    • Two on screen human deaths.

    I'd see it a 5th time if someone bought my ticket. (Or if I could afford to buy another one myself)

    Saw it for the 4th and likely final time last night, overall I'm responsible for 8 ticket sales!

    Quoting myself as I now has watched it one more time, so twice. :) 

    I still shake my head at the bad Norwegian translation of "Revenge of The Fallen" title. The translators failed to realize that The Fallen in the title is a character, not a group of people. Then we translate the Norwegian title back to English, we get "The defeated strikes back". Note that the defeated part there is in plural.

    Anyway, I'm one of the Norwegian audiences that gave Bumblebee a 6-star.
