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 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 »
(at around 58 mins) When Optimus jumps in the factory, during the overhead shot, Megatron also starts a flip. But Optimus nearly hits the ground at the end of that shot, while Megatron is only half-way through. Yet in the following shot, they both land at the same time. 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...

There are two scenes in the closing credits: In the first one, Sam gives a farewell kiss to Mikaela and leaves for college. In the second one, Professor Coleman puts Sam down a little before they return to work. See more »
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 don't understand how people are saying there is no plot. Hello, the Fallen wants to destroy the earth! Why does he? Maybe his evil mind was shutout from the Primes and he was rejected and Im sure he blames the humans. Megatron isn't too happy with us either. You cant say its stupid that they borough Megatron back to life, it happened in the cartoon! They named him Galvatron, but Bay couldn't do that because people like you would have one more thing to complain about not understanding. I understood everything that was going on and I loved the fight scenes. It was more than pushing and shoving, I saw a lot of punches and kicks, who didn't? I think you need to take a step back and throw out what critics say and formulate your own opinion. I thought it was hilarious when Simmons was in that thong, the whole audience did. If your saying the twins were racist why? I thought they were funny, if your saying their black or whatever maybe your the racist? I know white people who talk like that, there's no race to be intended except by the puny mind of people like you! This movie exceeded my expectations and I found it fun and eventful and easy to follow I don't know where this whole too much going on is coming from. If you are a fan of the cartoon you will love this movie!! BETTER THAN THE 1ST!!
