Autobots must escape sight from a bounty hunter who has taken control of the human serendipity: Unexpectedly, Optimus Prime and his remaining gang turn to a mechanic, his daughter, and her back street racing boyfriend for help.
Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.
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
Caterpillar, Inc. provided three vehicles to portray Decepticons: the 992D wheel loader (Scrapper), the 773B dump truck (Long Haul), and the D9N bulldozer (Rampage). See more »
When Bumblebee drives along at sunset, with the other Autobots, low-angle camera rigging casts a shadow on the far right of the frame. 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 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 »
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!!
