You clearly did not pay attention to just how horrific the failure of TLK was, or you’re ignoring the context of things. The fact that TLK came off of two billion dollar movies and barely cracked $600 million, when ten years prior, the first movie made $700 million, with cheaper ticket prices, no 3D, etc etc, is an absolutely massive failure. These movies had been making increasing amounts of money until DOTM despite abysmal critic scores, and even AOE had the genuine success from China that led to an entire sea change in the industry. But TLK bombed in China, the very place they were hoping at the least would give them money. TLK may have made more money, but it didn’t profit. $600 million for a movie of TLK’s scale, budget and status is a franchise-ender. If Bumblebee was not as far along as it was at the time, TLK would’ve killed the movies outright. Comparatively, Bumblebee had a far smaller budget to make up for, so while it wasn’t a massive success, it was still a small success and it got good reviews. There is so much more to determining theatrical success and failure than your rather tiny and black and white viewpoint. Now, I don’t know that Bumblebee still counts as underrated, because it’s not like it’s a movie that’s been forgotten and it was relatively successful for its budget and context.
