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
The interior design of the Nemesis was based on photographs of sawed-open bones, including marrow and vessels. See more »
(at around 54 mins) When Mikaela, Sam and Leo get into the Saturn there are no headrests on Sam's and Mikaela's seats, but when they kill the Pretender and are driving away, the headrests are suddenly there. See more »
Earth, birthplace of the human race. A species much like our own, capable of great compassion and great violence. For in our quest to protect the humans, a deeper revelation dawns: our worlds have met before...

The mainland Chinese release censors all mentions of the name "Shanghai" (where the opening battle takes place). Galloway's line "You guys made a mess at Shanghai" is edited to remove the last two words, while other uses of the city's name are bizarrely overdubbed with something that sounds like "Shanghaish."

I was more excited to see this film than any other. I finally got to see it at the cinema I manage last night. Overall I can say it was fantastic, I came out with that buzz that I felt after watching the 1st film. The film quickly got started and from there it never really let up, the action was constant with plenty of humour along the way. The style was very much the same as the 1st film just with more of it.
The introduction of new characters brought new elements to the action however there was a lot more potential in this area I feel. The development of the relationship between the leads in this film reminded me very much of Armageddon, it made me actually believe that they were falling in love; no mean feat when Megan Fox's character is paper thin.
Theis film wasn't perfect by any means, the story could have been developed much more and there are things which go unanswered. Normally this would drive me mad but this time didn't really bother me. Lets face it, the 1st film didn't exactly have a flawless storyline, thats not what its about. The point of the film was Michael Bay blowing sh*t up, which as expected was done well and often.
Overall I loved this film, normally it wouldn't come close to a 9 but it has that incredible feel good effect present in the 1st. I came out smiling and wanting more, and that it what Michael Bay and Transformers are designed for.
