The Transformers franchise has had a critical power with its recent entries, but the spin-off / prequel Bumblebee changed all that and became something of a surprise mite for fans.
The film is set in the late 1980s and focuses on Bumblebees' attempts to conceal hidden on Earth from the dangerous Decepticons.
The yellow transformer has help in the form of troubled teenager Charlie Watson (Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld), who has worn in the wake of father's father's death, and is angry that everyone else seems to move on.
Charlie finds her friendship with Bumblebee's purpose as they face a race against time to survive the dangerous alien threat and reunite Bumblebee with their friends.
But how does the movie end? And should you stay through credits?
Bumblebee's end was explained
The film's conclusion was an emotional farewell.
Charlie came in for Bumblebee to have a greater purpose than to be her friend and, overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, said goodbye to him.
Having said goodbye, Bumblebee continues to scan the 1977 Chevrolet Camaro – his form when he meets Sam (Shia LaBeouf) in the first Transformers movie that this movie is set to.
The scene therefore leaves things for the other Transformers films.
Is there a Bumblebee after-credit scene?
If you can call it that, yes.
Just as director Travis Knight is credited, we cut into two sequences.
The first is that Bumblebee is reunited with its master and friend Optimus Prime in a forest, when Optimus reveals that several of their Autobot Allies go to Earth – we see them entering the Earth's atmosphere.
Finally, we see Charlie again, where she finally stops working on the Corvette car, which she and her beloved late father had worked together.
The final shot is Charlie who runs out into the sunset in her car.
We do not cry, you cry.
Hops are in theaters now.
