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

The freighter the Constructicons hide out on is named "Bayos." This is a joke on Michael Bay's action sequences, which are filled with as much chaos and mayhem as possible, that they have been christened "Bayos" and "Bayhem." See more »

Goofs

In Egypt, when Sam says, "We got cops!" they're at a fork in the road, and with two police cars heading towards them from the left of the 'fork', Sam drives to the right of the 'fork'. However, in the next shot, the two police cars are driving past Bumblebee and the twins on the very same road, just before the police cars make their U-turns. See more »

Quotes

Micheal Bay...What did you expect?
11 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

I went into this movie with very very low expectations, after all majority of Hollywood sequels suck horribly.

That being said this movie is an ACTION film, its story is lacking but I still cant find anyone who can name an actual plot hole. A plot hole is like the scene in the Matrix where Keanu is on the roof and fires all his shots at the agent misses every shot drops his weapons they hit the ground and he says "Trinity help!!!" The agent then empties his clip at Neo who dodges almost every shot and gets grazed by a few, as the slow motion stops he falls to the ground along with his weapons that had already hit the ground. Thats a plot hole.

This movie is not perfectly written (feels a bit joggy and doesn't seem to flow naturally) I'll admit that but this is also a Micheal Bay film, if you wanted something more then action and T&A then look elsewhere as this movie is loaded with both.

I originally gave this movie a 10, yes it was a knee jerk reaction but at this time Id still give it a 7 or 8. It does what it sets out to do, there's action, cheesy jokes like in the first movie nice long shots of Megan's bits and pieces.

This movie did what it was supposed too, however I will admit that the Autobots like Ironhide and Ratchet had very few lines :( and the Decepticons lacked introduction and development.

I did enjoy this film but maybe I was not expecting as much as everyone else was. I wanted to be entertained I wanted to escape reality and realism and thats what I got a few hours to kick back and enjoy a film for what it does well.
