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 IMAX version of the film, released on DVD and Blu-ray as a "Big Screen Edition" exclusively at Wal-Mart, features at least an additional minute of footage. During the film, the screen resolution and aspect ratio occasionally changes to the larger (70mm) IMAX format for select shots (jumping back and forth between this and the standard aspect ratio in the middle of a scene). The scenes include a slightly extended version of the fight in the forest, with more shots of Decepticons exchanging fisticuffs with Optimus Prime, Sam reacting, etc. Two more sequences consist of footage of Devastator during his transformation in the desert and various assaults on the pyramid. Much of the IMAX footage consists of alternate takes as well. See more »
After coming out of the cinema I usually review a movie. What feeling do I have. With this one it was difficult. I mean the special effects were good especially when you see it in Imax. It was certainly entertaining, there were a lot of jokes. But well somehow it also felt hollow. It is much better than the last Terminator. But for instance Star Strek was much better than this one (and I am not a Star Trek fan). I guess it was too long too much action. I liked the first Transformers more even if this one was obviously even more advanced in special effects.
I give it a 7 out of 10 for the amazing special effects and the gorgeous Megan Fox.
