Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

The whole family can sit down to watch this, but it's a bit of a departure from the standard Transformers action. For some, especially younger viewers, that's a great thing: Transformers: BotBots takes on modern day issues like social media, cell phone safety, climate change, and self esteem. However, those looking for something more true to the rest of the action-heavy franchise won't find it here; instead they'll find more of a Night at the Museum/Toy Story knock-off that may have kid viewers begging parents to buy the very toys the series is based on.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
