Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen Movie Review
Optimus Prime is back to face Megatron and the evil Decepticon army in this explosive sequel. Check out Kidzworld’s review of this summer blockbuster!
Sam Witwicky (played by Shia LeBeouf) is the key to unlocking the mysterious origins of the Transformers, but he just wants to go to college and forget all about the alien robot war. Sam moves to the east coast for college and leaves behind Bumblebee, his yellow Camaro/Autobot protector, and his girlfriend Mikaela (played by Megan Fox). Sam buys Mikaela a webcam so he and Mikaela can maintain the relationship, but Sam is quickly swept up in the frenzy of college life and misses their first web date.
Mikaela isn’t pleased, but Sam has bigger problems than an angry long-distance girlfriend. An evil decepticon is masquerading as a sexy coed who follows Sam all around campus and eventually corners him in his room. Luckily, Mikaela suspects something, so she flies east and manages to burst in the room before the Transformer temptress can plant her deadly kiss on the defenseless Sam.
When the All-Spark was destroyed, a shard of the cube fell onto Sam’s jacket. When he accidentally discovers it, the shard transfers its data into Sam’s head and now he can’t stop writing cryptic symbols all over his astronomy textbook! These mysterious characters are a map to the matrix—an ancient device that can resurrect fallen Transformers and unlock the secret of their buried history.
Eons ago, the forefathers of the Transformers waged an epic battle in Egypt to determine the fate of Earth and it looks like the time has come for another decisive battle. To save the earth from utter destruction, Sam must decode the symbols and help Opitimus once again defeat the Decepticons.
The Bottom Line
Action-packed and fun! The storyline is convoluted and hard to follow, and Sam's roommate is an annoying, throw-away character, but the robots look great and lots of stuff blows up, so if you come for the action, you'll leave happy.
