Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Categories: [ TV/Cinema/Transformers ]



The reason NASA went to the Moon is to explore the wreck of an alien ship (which happens to contain a weapon that could have ended the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons). In the present, the Autobots discover a fuel cell from that ship in Chernobyl, leading them to learn about the wreck on the moon and the retrieval of part of the weapon and of Sentinel Prime (revived by Optimus thanks to the gadget found in the previous movie), the inventor of the weapon and the only one who knows how to use it. It turns out that Sentinel was actually allied with the Decepticons because he thought it was the only way to end the war. His plan is to use the weapon (actually a long-distance transport system) to take Cybertron to the Earth and use the humans as slaves to rebuild it. An endless battle in Chicago (where the Decepticons are installed) ensues, and is won only because Sam's new girlfriend manages to turn Megatron, the leader of the Decepticons, against Sentinel (by whom he feels his authority is threatened).

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Categories: [ TV/Cinema/Transformers ]



The Fallen is a Decepticon that has been hiding far away in the solar system and wants to find the key to a device, hidden somewhere on Earth, that would destroy the sun and produce energon. The Decepticons are chasing Sam because he got infused with a bit of the All Spark, has visions of symbols (of the language of the Primes) that can lead him to the key and is now the only one who can actually find the key. The autobots are protecting Sam, but Optimus Prime is killed. Sam then looks for the key that should allow to ressuscitate Optimus. They finally locate the key in Egypt. After a long battle for the control of the device (located at the top of a pyramid), Sam manages to save Optimus Prime while the army destroys the device.

In the desert in Qatar, US troops are attacked by a helicopter that transformed into a robot. Later, they are attacked again by a scorpion-shaped robot. Meanwhile Sam, a teenager, gets a used car from his father. But the car is stolen one night and he follows it on a bicycle. He sees the car transform into a robot. The police of course doesn't believe him. Later, he is chased by a police car that transforms as well, and he is saved by his car. He soon meets the five Autobots who explain they are looking for glasses that had belonged to his great-grandfather and that he was trying to sell on EBay. The man had discovered a frozen robot in the arctic (Megatron, the leader of the Decepticons) and information about the location of the Spark, an energy cube, got engraved in the lenses of the glasses. If the Decepticons manage to find the cube first, they will use it to turn the machines to robots (that's the power of the cube) and wipe out life from Earth. The Autobots are here to prevent that from happening. Sam later gets arrested by a secret government organization and taken to a facility where Megatron has been kept frozen for the past eighty years; the cube had been discovered as well, and the facility built around it. But the other Decepticons cut the power to let their leader thaw, and the people have to flee. They hope to hide the cube (which has been conveniently reduced in size and mass by Sam's Autobot) in the nearest city. A large battle takes place. The cube is eventually destroyed, provoking the death of Megatron. The Autobots have no hope of using it to revive their planet, and decide to stay on Earth, hiding.
