REVENGE IS COMING.
As Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) prepares to go to college, the Decepticons are planning their revenge on both mankind and the forces supporting Optimus Prime. This sequel continues the battle between the machines, and it goes on and on and on; the final showdown in Egypt takes up the full last hour. LaBeouf works his charm and the visual effects are elaborate, but there’s too much of everything and too many fights are so jittery one can barely make out what’s going on.
