A youth chooses manhood. The week Sam Witwicky starts college, the Decepticons make trouble in Shanghai. A presidential envoy believes it's because the Autobots are around; he wants them gone. He's wrong: the Decepticons need access to Sam's mind to see some glyphs imprinted there that will lead them to a fragile object that, when inserted in an alien machine hidden in Egypt for centuries, will give them the power to blow out the sun. Sam, his girlfriend Mikaela Banes, and Sam's parents are in danger. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are Sam's principal protectors. If one of them goes down, what becomes of Sam? Written by
The Dinobots, a faction of Autobots who took the forms of dinosaurs, received strong support from fans to appear in the film. Alex Kurtzman dismissed them as an unlikely concept for an alien robot film, but decided to reserve them for a sequel because of their popularity among fans. Michael Bay however, claimed that he disliked them and that they would not make an appearance in the films. See more »
The scene involving Egypt, Jordan, and the Bay of Aqaba is a geographic mess. Petra is almost 1,000 km. from the pyramids, which are just outside Cairo, which is hundreds of kilometers inland from the Mediterranean. See more »
Earth, birthplace of the human race. A species much like our own, capable of great compassion and great violence. For in our quest to protect the humans, a deeper revelation dawns: our worlds have met before...

In Psychology, we would take this movie as a perfect example of what we
call "reinforcement". If people like it, make more of it. If no one
said anything about it, no need to make it again.
So, what did everyone (myself included) talked in the first film? Those
fights were great. Loved the robots, I wanted more of them. Oh, Megan
is hot. Let's get more of her too (if by "more of her" you hear "less
of her clothes", even better). Oh, Megatron was great, sorry he had a
short time in the screen. And do on.
No one talked about the story of the movie, or how the characters were
different from each other. Of course no one paid any attention to the
dialogues. No one said how great was the continuity of the movie. No
one cared who the characters were. Thus... why bother with any of this?
There was a long time I did not see a movie so bad as this one. I am
still in shock, after 4 days. Director, writer, editor... no one had
any idea of what do to with any of those characters or how to get from
a scene to the other. No one cared for the story, why people should be
in one place or other. The plots are so scattered no one bothered to
think why a character would do something.
So, if you like the characters created in the first movie; if you like
stories; if you would like at least that you ears and/or you
intelligence don't be hurt by the most stupid lines ever told by a
human (or robot) in a movie, be careful with this movie.
But, if you want to see a lot of spare parts fighting each other, would
like to see great battles, don't care for story, dialogues or
continuity, you'll sure like this one, because it has great battle
scenes, bigger and faster than the first one. Then, maybe you'll give
and 8 instead of a 2 to Revenge of the Fallen. Myself, i like that
action scenes be part of the movie, not the movie itself.
So, be careful with the movie. Don't get any higher expectations except
some time to eat popcorn.
