The Australian release was censored; after the film initially received an M classification for "Action violence" from the classification board, the distributor (Paramount) decided to re-edit the film in order to obtain a more lucrative PG rating. Following some changes made to the film, a modified version of the film was submitted to the board, however, the modified version also received an M classification for "Action violence. Following an appeal from Paramount, the modified version of the film was issued a PG classification on December 11th with the consumer advice now stating that the film contains "Mild science fiction violence and mild themes. Some scenes may scare young children". Both versions were approved for theatrical release. See more »

Finally we get another good Transformers movie.
Let's be honest every Transformers movie other than the first one has been bad. The 3rd one had a great third act in Chicago but that's about it. I went into this with extremely low expectations and was really surprised. I can finally say we second good Transformers movie with this standalone Bumblebee movie. This is a movie with a lot of heart and that's not just due to Bumblebee but also with the human characters. They finally got a great lead with Hailee Steinfeld who gives a damn solid performance in this. The entire cast was good no one seemed like they were phoning it in for a paycheck. The action in this movie is a major step up from the sequels, you can actually tell what's going on and the visuals are beautiful and detailed. I was ecstatic to see they went back with the first generation designs. The Transformers are characters and you feel for them. If you're a Transformers fan you have to go see this movie.
