Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.
Autobots must escape sight from a bounty hunter who has taken control of the human serendipity: Unexpectedly, Optimus Prime and his remaining gang turn to a mechanic, his daughter, and her back street racing boyfriend for help.
Optimus Prime finds his dead home planet, Cybertron, in which he comes to find he was responsible for its destruction. He finds a way to bring Cybertron back to life, but in order to do so, Optimus needs to find an artifact that is on Earth.
(at around 1h 12 mins) A statue of Optimus from ancient history is shown in Sir Edmund's office. The design used for Optimus here is clearly his knight armor that he wears in this film, despite the fact that he did not look like this until the fourth installment. See more »

Transformers versus Humans? What a Mess of Battles!
I'm glad to find Anthony Hopkins who is my favourite actor in this film unexpectedly, I find also Victoria Bay and Monster Mansion as a shooting locations I'm quite familiar with!
However, this movie franchise, Transformer was originally created from King Kong series that features mechanic King Kong versus wild King Kong. It was a work of cinematic renovation not innovation!
You should not ignore the origin of this renewed franchise! All least Chinese title has audiences to misinterpret it in this way. It was from other comic franchise...
The story(main action line) depicts UK knights and transformers save the earth from evil transformers who seek reviving evil death star. I am sorry to say that this plot is not acceptable for me. It is a historical racism that hidden in this heroic story. Instead, The Seven Samurai (1954) is not OK for saving the earth from evil transformers?
I think it is quite sad that it also heavily depends on CG, computer animations and its relative VFX. CG is not film editing but so many people misunderstand and confuse CG with Editing. It is a kind of animation department not traditional montage department work.
Filmmaking should be more accessible for anyone in the society. It is a device for the working class movement not only for prestigious guilds. D.I.Y. filmmaking is more recommended to practice in your real life and social movements.
Anyway, after I saw this blockbuster, what I remember is Anthony Hopkins's brilliant acting! That's all. There is nothing more...
