Generally, I don't see the problem. While it's certainly true that most live-action adaptations of comic-sourced material make changes to suit their medium, I don't find that most deviations are so off-putting to make it such that I think they shouldn't have even made the attempt.
Bay's Transformers movies have been very much the exception. I have nothing good to say about those, apart from appreciating the added visibility they gave to the rest of the franchise.
(Someday, I'll get around to watching the Bay-less Bumblebee movie. I'm told that one's okay, but I was so put off by its predecessors that I've not made the effort yet.)
