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
Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman originally passed on this film due to scheduling conflicts with other films, but the studios returned to them after looking through the other writers' scripts and finding them unsatisfactory. However, they had only three weeks to write the script due to the 2007 Writer's Guild of America strike. Michael Bay and Shia LaBeouf expressed disappointment with the film due to the script's rushed treatment. See more »
While flying over the desert, you can see a pilot inside Starscream. In previous shots (the 3 riders on the motorcycles) and in Transformers, Transformers often use "digital pilots" to enhance their disguise. Although the digital pilot would not really work since Starscream has a bunch of tattoos, it could just be a "default" setting to display the pilot when in jet mode. See more »

oh come on... this is a movie which delivers what the fans wanted to see - another full blown action movie set across the world.
The transformation sequences still amaze me, be it the prime's airdrop or the devastator's. It truly is another Bay movie with jaw-dropping action sequences. I am still suffering from the after effects.
Accolades to the visual & sound FX team. This movie grips me right from the Dreamworks & Paramount fanfare. The sound fx in the movie does get loud at times, well if u'd survived the first transformers, then u can survive this one as well. And if u want to find flaws, there r plenty. Everybody knows this movie isn't meant to be a cinematic classic, u better watch godfather or schindler's list for that.
This review comes after my 3rd viewing of the DVD disc.
