TRANSFORMERS - The Revenge of the Fallen is an anomaly. Put separately, I like Megan Fox. I like big, bad robots. And I like fancy cars. Put them together, and you get Transformers 2 a colossal mess that neither interests you nor does it entertain.

Here's what happens in the movie. The Autobots (i.e. the good robots from the first film led by the heroic Optimus Prime), have teamed up with the U.S. military to form NEST, an elite task force sent on top secret missions around the world to hunt down any remaining Decepticons, the evil robots that tried to destroy the world the first time around under the leadership of the Megatron. When a mission in Shanghai results in what appears to be the destruction of half the city, the President sends in some nerdy egghead type who ominously warns that he is just about to shut down NEST, and force all the Autobots to leave for good. Meanwhile, back in California, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) is about to leave his comedy relief parents (Kevin Dunn and Julie White) and eye-candy girlfriend Mikaela (Megan Fox) to go to college out east.

While packing for the trip, he discovers a previously undetected shard of the AllSpark, the all-powerful doodad that everyone was looking for the first time around. This time around, it fills his head with all sorts of crazy symbols and allows him to absorb information at incredible speed so that he can stand up in the middle of a lecture and confidently proclaim “Einstein was wrong,” which sadly isn't close to being the film's worst line of dialogue.

As it turns out there was a group of seven Prime robots, of whom Optimus is the final descendant, and one of them, eventually known as The Fallen, attempted to destroy the Earth by utilizing a device called the Matrix of something to harvest all the power of the sun. To prevent that from happening, the other Primes buried themselves and the device in an unknown location. Now that both Fallen and Megatron are up and running again, they need that device to continue their plans and realize that a map leading to it has been imprinted on Sam's brain. What ensues is a series of madness and mayhem oozing with exploding robots and tacky dialogues. Best prescribed only when you are extremely bored.
