Sam Witwicky leaves the Autobots behind for a normal life. But when his mind is filled with cryptic symbols, the Decepticons target him and he is dragged back into the Transformers' war.
Released on the 25th anniversary of The Transformers (1984).
Earth, birthplace of the human race. A species much like our own, capable of great compassion and great violence. For in our quest to protect the humans, a deeper revelation dawns: our worlds have met before...
(at around 1h 55 mins) In a single shot, when Devastator starts to form the whirlpool, the camera pans and a man screams "Ayuda!" (for 'help' in Spanish), the pan continues past a truck to reveal Leo and Simmons. Then Devastator's whirlpool sucks the truck and the man who screamed is not seen.
The DreamWorks and Paramount logos are accompanied by a series of robotic sounds.
The mainland Chinese release censors all mentions of the name "Shanghai" (where the opening battle takes place). Galloway's line "You guys made a mess at Shanghai" is edited to remove the last two words, while other uses of the city's name are bizarrely overdubbed with something that sounds like "Shanghaish."
