plot: on the planet Cybertron, a war was being waged between the Autobots n the Decepticons. for the control of the Allspark (an immensely powerful, life-giving device). the survivors scattered throughout the universe seeking the Allspark. Megatron eventually tracked it to the planet Earth. but his recklessness sent him right into the Arctic Ocean, n the sheer cold forced him into a paralyzed state.
a century later, Sam Witwicky buys his first car. which turns out to be Bumblebee (an Autobot in disguise who is to be Sam's Guardian). Sam and his girlfriend Mikaela find themselves in the middle of a grand battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons. during the final showdown between Optimus Prime n Megatron, the Allspark is destroyed when Sam inserts it into Megatron's chest, overwhelming him with its power and killing Megatron in the process. the Autobots choose to remain on Earth as its guardians. after the destruction of the Allspark, they can no longer recreate their homeworld, n Optimus Prime sends a message calling out for any surviving Autobots scattered across the galaxy to find them. but in the final scene of the movie, Starscream (a Decepticon) is shown to be alive and flying out to space ..
what a ride !! love their transformation. love the sound they make when they transformed. had been my favorite part during the cartoon. n is still my favorite part of the movie. few things that kept me thinking after the movie. if Allsparks can destroy Megatron, why not just give it to him in the first place? throw it in his face, rather than spending all those time n effort to "protect" Allsparks? risking life n losing a comrade - Jazz? n if Allsparks can kinda "jammed the engine of Megatron", why did Optimus Prime asked Sam to put it into his chest if he fails to destroy Megatron? won't that make his "engine jammed" the same way Megatron's did, instead of explode n sacrifice himself to destroy Megatron as expected? hm .. *scratching my head* Optimus Prime has a quote in the movie."(autobots/humans are) more than meets the eyes". a rather meaningful quote. we mustn't be judgmental, just as Mikaela can be a car-theft despite her appearance.
