Transformers plot

05.06.2009

Through Creative Screenwriting Magazine, we have what might be our first comprehensive idea of the plot for TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN:

"When the story begins, the Autobots and the military have been waging a secret war against the [Decepticons]. As more of the giant robots continue to resurface, though, it becomes apparent the Transformers have been part of Earth's history for longer than they'd led mankind to believe. One group of bureaucrats even [wonders] if the Decepticons are only appearing because of the Autobot presence. Desperate not to leave Earth undefended, Optimus Prime turns to Sam and asks him to become a human advocate, someone who will convince mankind that the Autobots should be allowed to [stay]. Sam refuses to believe he can help, though, wanting to go to college and live a normal life - as normal as possible with the strange thoughts and visions that have haunted him since being exposed to the All Spark's primal energies two years earlier. Alas, Sam's refusal will have harsh consequences for himself, the Autobots and possibly the entire world. The Decepticons fallen leader, Megatron has been resurrected and brings with him an ancient evil from the Transformers own history."

I'm a massive TRANSFORMERS geek but I'm only starting to get excited for the movie now. And the reason for that is Michael Bay's awful idea of continual misinformation. Why should I get excited for something that probably isn't true? Anyway, whatever. This movie is gonna be huge.
Extra Tidbit: Shooting on the movie started one day after the original won the MTV Movie Award for Best Movie.

Agreed with JohnLocke & Red

The story, while not the #1 reason we're watching Bay films, still needs to be there, as it was in the first one, where I thought it worked.

I'm beyond amped for this film. Transformers 2 = The Dark Knight of 2009

That's like saying Deathstars and lightsabers are purely spectacle, and add nothing to the integrity of the story.

Fallen

Megatron is The Fallen? Cool...
TF is kinda like a porn film. They add a plot, but all it really does is negate the reason you're watching it: Naked people/Robot fights. I'm not taking anything away from the movies, Bay is in his element here and the quality of the shots reflect that, but, that plot is just an excuse for the set-pieces they concocted to beat the spectacle of the first film.

I agree with Red4, I wouldn't pay 2 dollars let alone a full price admission to see robot's beat the shit out of each other without a plot. The first one had a solid story that wove through the action. This one seems to have upped the anti a bit.

And even tho nobody ever talks about it, I dig the characters in the movie. Yeah they mite be shallow cookie cutter characters but they're better then the robots half the time.

Sure the plot sounds good, even awesome, on paper but after seeing the trailer I know the movie is just gonna be filled with the god awful "humor" the 1st one had and just be a big budget joke.

Shocked

I am shocked that pretty much nobody who commented below gives two shits about Transformers having a plot. It's like you guys are fucking shallow. But that's my impression. I could be wrong; and it's only about 4 of you. I am not going into this movie simply expecting to see beautiful robots beating each other into scrap - because that's fucking idiotic. I need a solid plot; otherwise I wouldn't want to see this movie. And yes, the first movie had a solid plot; so don't tell me the first movie

wow, seriously who cares for the story.
this will be the biggest hollywood action blockbuster ever. where every single frame looks like a postcard thanks to Bay. That's already better than most other movies out there of which 99% look like crap.
