Cast overview, first billed only:
Special Air Service Forces


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?

Did You Know?


Jetfire rants about how his father was a wheel, and did not transform at all. He is possibly alluding to the Autobot Scrounge, who appeared in the "Transformers" comics and whose alternate mode was a wheel. See more »


(0:50:05) When Leo and Alice find Sam writing Cybertronian symbols on the walls, on small bits throughout the scene you can see that Sam's got Cybertronian marks in his arms (the ones he shows to the twins later in the film); yet he doesn't get them until some 6 or 7 minutes after, when Megatron holds his arms with his claws.

Seriously...what happened?
29 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

i loved the first transformers, the acting/humour was superb and the action was AMAZING. I was super anxious for transformers 2 and after about an hr I was anxious to leave. I couldn't take it anymore, everything was stepped up to a bad degree. Too loud, too much action, too much horrendous jokes and way too many robots! Half the time i was trying to figure out whos who and there were so many plot holes that bugged me, this all being in the first hr alone. There were three characters that I truly DETESTED, the twin robots and that greasy haired buffoon of roommate, it doesn't get any more annoying than those three. GAHHH and when all three of them were in the same scene I wanted to kill myself.
