Storyline

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?

Trivia

During Operation Firestorm, the Twins grab onto a pipe. For a moment, a newspaper blows onto the pipe, on which a headline ("...STERIOUS ROBOT SIGHTED") and an image of a robot can be seen. The image is of the Decepticon Shockwave, who is seen in his The Transformers (1984) appearance. It also hints at his arrival in Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011). See more »

When the Autobots are in the hangar, and Optimus Prime is doing his report to the general, director Galloway interrupts them and talks about their weaponry. The scene repeats at the end, when he asks if the Autobots would leave the planet peacefully. See more »

Thrilling and Exciting, with non stop Humour and Action. A Must Watch this summer!
28 June 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Thrilling, exciting, CGI graphics to the next level all while keeping it a fun thrilled humorous ride throughout the entire film. Transformers 2 did an excellent job at what it is suppose to do which is entertain its audience. It had funny moments, over the top character actors, incredible graphics.

Michael Bay did it again with Revenge of the Fallen, he created a fun packed action film with some of Hollywood's young superstars who are becoming cash cows for the industry, such as Meagan Foxx who every teenager and grown up adult wants to fantasize about.

The story is filled with many plot holes, the characters are written very cliché, the 360 camera use and constant slow motion on screen were all there but if anyone can have those in a movie and still make one hell of an enjoyable film its these film creators they have done it before and they will do it again. Don't go into this movie expecting and serious relatable human people because everyone is exaggerated to the extreme and the fights are very chaotic when at times it shouldn't be and some parts you can't believe happened the way they did but during the movie this doesn't cross your mind.

This film is a summer blockbuster, it will bring enjoyment to those who watch it, it delivers state of the art CGI, action and a hottie on camera who oozes sex every second she is on screen. The movies that make the most money are rarely if ever the Oscar winners, they are the ones you enjoy the most and this movie delivers, if they had a most fun, enjoyment movie of the year, Transformers 2 would be a clear favourite for this year.

8/10 ~XTC
