Two years after saving the world with the Autobots, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) is away at college when an ancient Decepticon named "The Fallen" returns to Earth on a mission of vengeance. With the Allspark destroyed, the Autobots lose all hope of returning to their home planet of Cybertron, and begin working with an elite military known as NEST to hunt down any remaining Decepticons. But even as they fight for humanity alongside Major Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and USAF Master Sergeant Epps (Tyrese Gibson), the Autobots are acutely aware that not all humans are thrilled by their presence… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It adds up exactly as you'd think if you've seen a moving picture before; the motivations are simple while the laughs pound you about the head and face."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"It is as if Michael Bay was saying "You think I've blown stuff up before? Ha-ha. Wait till you see this.""
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Few elements of Fallen are completely odious unto themselves, but rolled together it becomes a wave of inescapable proportions."
‑ Rob Humanick, House Next Door
"I had a pretty excellent time."
‑ Dave White,
"Revenge of the Fallen ... plays more like Pearl Harbor 2, from the heavy-handed seriousness to the clumsy racial stereotypes (a couple of 'ethnic' robots seem to have walked straight out of the Kirk Lazarus School of Racial Sensitivity)."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"Much of the movie is computer-generated hash, weightless even with nonstop BOOMS and METAL GROANS and THUDS."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"It's confusing and excessive and it just missed the mark completely."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"Built from the ground up to be a popcorn-devouring, eye-popping, nostalgia-sparking crowd-pleaser."
‑ Ali Gray,
"The people Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was made for will like it for what it is. Which is probably the saddest thing about it. As long as you're willing to accept crap, you're not likely to get anything better."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"It's frustrating that if Transformers 2 took itself a little more seriously, it might just have blown audiences away the same way the original did."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"The movie rages on for a hundred and fifty minutes and then just stops, pausing for the next sequel."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"If it sounds as though the script (credited to Ehren Kruger, Robert Orci, and Alex Kurtzman) was written in serial-novel form during an all-night mescaline bender, well, I have no evidence that it was not."
‑ Christopher Orr, The New Republic
"A minor improvement over its nigh abominable predecessor..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Bayformers 2 is a mess of a story loosely glued together with lame jokes, fighting pixels and Megan Fox's ass."
‑ Mike Edwards, What Culture
"Michael Bay knows how to spoil any film he touches, taking an extreme step down from the surprisingly fun original."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
