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.
The opening battle between Arthur's Britons and the Saxon hoard (shown, incorrectly as fighting as mounted cavalry) was filmed at Bourne Wood near Farnham, Surrey, England. This same location has been used for the opening battles of both Gladiator (2000) and Robin Hood (2010) and TV commercials for "Marmite" and "Ikea". See more »
(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 »

SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: a human team is investigating Unicron's horn in the desert, and Quintessa in human form meets them and offers her assistance. See more »
The movie is made by a teenage writer who cannot even write conversations natural, read part of DaVinci Code, part of Arthur, and watched a Star War movie. Putting everything together without logic, this is what the movie is. Oh, by the way, his knowledge about physics never go beyond what his parents told him in kindergarten.
There are more than enough critics on plot and poorly told stories; I'm not going to repeat. But I have to point one character: the Old Man. Who cares what his name is (I didn't get it AT ALL) I don't know what kind of personality Michael Bay want to create. What I saw was a rude, uneducated, changing man with a lot of money. It was so awkward while he dump the famous names into my ears and declared that all those people tried to keep that stupid secret. I don't know what he said "I can't go with you" because he eventually was there, and...just died there.
After 10 min, the only though I had was to see how bad the movie can be. YKW, it's just worse than I thought.
