When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
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

I LOVE the first transformers. Huge alien robots beating the living crap out of each other, great effects, and it wasn't just mindless violence, there was an actual story.
Now I didn't get to see this film in theaters, I had to wait until it came out on DVD, and I had looked up reviews of this and I see a lot of "Full of plot holes wah wah wah, story sucked, wah wah wah" I ask the critics this, were you expecting a God father plot or a Citizen Kane story line in a movie about robots beating each other up?! Yes the movie is long, and some of the transformers are rude, but the action is great and we are given more character development for the transformers this time around, and the story was more about the transformers and not just about Sam. But there's still room for Sam's character and all the other humans as well.
What more can I say? If you aren't a nit picky critic like Ebert, and you see this movie for what it is; a bunch of alien robots pounding each other into the ground, then you may like this film, as for me, I love this film!
