Our Score
The screenplay is ragged, the cheap humour is miscalculated, it's far too long and Megan Fox substitute Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sucks the life from every scene - but on the awesome-spectacle front, director Michael Bay raises the action bar to a completely new jaw-dropping level with this second sequel. The story opens by recounting how the 1960s space race was initiated in response to an alien vessel landing on the Moon, and how that proves to be all part of an elaborate Decepticon plan to reshape the universe and enslave humankind. Naturally, it's left to Shia LaBeouf and the Autobots to save the world again. From the creepy Apollo 11 lunar restaging and car-crash robot conversions to the stunning decimation of Chicago and - best of all - an astonishing sequence in a tipping skyscraper, Bay overwhelms the senses with the technically sublime mother of all battle sequences lasting 60 minutes. It's an exhausting, eye-aching watch, but it certainly takes your breath away.


The heroic autobots discover that a spaceship from their own planet crashed into the moon decades ago, carrying their former leader and an incredibly powerful device. They must fight to defend the human race as their enemies the decepticons plot to use this machine to rebuild their own world and destroy the Earth. Sci-fi adventure sequel, with Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
