It’s been two years since Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) helped the Autobots save mankind from the Decepticons and once again they need his help. Only this time Sam refuses to get caught up in the battle to live a normal life as a college freshman, but when he is pursued by the Decepticons he is forced to fight alongside the Autobots. With the help of his girlfriend Mikaela (Megan Fox), whom he struggles to say “I love you” to, college roommate Leo (Ramon Rodriguez), field commanders Major Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and USAF Master Sergeant Epps (Tyrese Gibson), and former Sector 7 Agent Simmons (John Turturro), they uncover the secret history of the Transformers presence on earth to try to save the planet from an ancient Decepticon known as The Fallen.

So what’s different about the sequel? According to Shia LaBeouf, it’s the interaction between the robots and the humans. “It’s more of a relationship as opposed to human and alien, now it’s almost like friends,” he said. “This movie also has bigger laughs than the first one.”

The first Transformers movie featured What I’ve Done by Linkin Park, who wrote and recorded this film’s theme song New Divide. The soundtrack also features music from Green Day, Taking Back Sunday, The Used, The All-American Rejects, Cavo, The Fray, Staind, Nickelback, Hoobastank, Avenged Sevenfold, Theory of A Deadman, and Cheap Trick.

Recommendation: Due to Michael Bay’s directing style, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is definitely more action driven than story driven as opposed to this summer’s blockbuster Star Trek, which was also penned by writing duo Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. This film will generate some laughs mostly by Sam’s parents and Leo and is a “summer fun” movie as described by Bay himself, but it would work better if it was 30-45 minutes shorter—particularly the action scenes in the second half of the movie, which really don’t add too much to the storyline. If you really want to enjoy the full special effects of this film, then you should see it on IMAX, it makes a huge difference.


Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is directed by Michael Bay and is a Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures production. Watch the action explode on IMAX screens on July 24, 2009.
