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.
After the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leveled Chicago, humanity thinks that all alien robots are a threat. So Harold Attinger, a CIA agent, establishes a unit whose sole purpose is to hunt down all of them. But it turns out that they are aided by another alien robot who is searching for Optimus Prime. Cade Yeager, a "robotics expert", buys an old truck and upon examining it, he thinks it's a Transformer. When he powers it up, he discovers it's Optimus Prime. Later, men from the unit show up looking for Optimus. He helps Yeager and his daughter Tessa escape but are pursued by the hunter. They escape and Yeager learns from technology he took from the men that a technology magnate and defense contractor named Joshua Joyce is part of what's going on, so they go to find out what's going on.Written by
Original designs for Grimlock, the dinobot shaped like a Tyrannosaur, gave him three claws on his forearms. This was because until 1989, intact forearms of the Tyrannosaurus Rex had not been found, and paleontologists thought Tyrannosaurs had three. The discovery proved that Tyrannosaurs in fact had two claws. Grimlock in this movie is featured with the anatomically-correct two claws. See more »
Several times the human characters fall or are thrown several feet without any injuries. During the highway chase scene where Prime fights Galvatron for the first time, Tessa rolls along the concrete highway at highway speeds but then gets up without a scratch. During this same scene, the humans are thrown in the air through fire and "caught" by metal robots without a scratch. See more »
I got to watch this movie for free and let me just say that it is bad... So bad that I actually feel ripped off despite getting the rental for free.
The 1st indication that we were going down the wrong path was the short jean girl who is the "responsible one" of the family. Then we have prototypical retarded inventor... yes the guy who is super smart is also the dumbest guy in the movie because, you know, as intelligence goes up you actually become stupider.
Those two horrible character were just the opening volley to the rest of this travesty, that they to pass off as entertainment. We have government agents that are even dumber than those in real life as well as transformers with horrible lines and attempts at comedy that just made me cringe in embarrassment. I don't usually ascribe to hate mongering of directors or writers but I think that this was the death knell to Michael Bay's career. He was never great, but he is just getting worse over time. Skip this movie. I enjoyed an Adam Sandler chick flicks more than I enjoyed this and after this retarded movie, I probably owe the wife a dozen more chick flicks...
