Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen plot revealed
The, almost full, plot for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen plot has been revealed and it makes for interesting reading, although nothing that should be too much of a surprise, especially the "reveal" that Megatron is back, wow, who'd have guessed?
In Creative Screenwriting Magazine there's an interesting article with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci talking about the script and the film, and the article also takes a pop at those on the Internet revealing spoilers and secrets about films, just as the magazine reveals the plot. Interesting.
The plot outline for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen isn't anything too explosive, and it's everything we've been guessing on the way and being offered in dribs and drabs through the trailers and announcements, but it makes for interesting reading all pulled together.
"When the story begins, the Autobots and the military have been waging a secret war against the [Decepticons]. As more of the giant robots continue to resurface, though, it becomes apparent the Transformers have been part of Earth's history for longer than they'd led mankind to believe. One group of bureaucrats even [wonders] if the Decepticons are only appearing because of the Autobot presence. Desperate not to leave Earth undefended, Optimus Prime turns to Sam and asks him to become a human advocate, someone who will convince mankind that the Autobots should be allowed to [stay]. Sam refuses to believe he can help, though, wanting to go to college and live a normal life - as normal as possible with the strange thoughts and visions that have haunted him since being exposed to the All Spark's primal energies two years earlier. Alas, Sam's refusal will have harsh consequences for himself, the Autobots and possibly the entire world. The Decepticons fallen leader, Megatron has been resurrected and brings with him an ancient evil from the Transformers own history."
That comes from the May/June 2009 issue of Creative Screenwriting Magazine through Latino Review.
So that's why we see the blocks on a pyramid start to spin around in mid air and a Decepticon climbing atop it, they're trying to release something from within, or find something hidden inside and it proves that Transformers have been on the planet for a lot longer than we first believed.
There's still a lot being kept from us, which I think is good and hope stays that way, because this kind of plot sounds like it could be over in about half an hour which would then leave us room for fight sequence after fight sequence. Personally I'm still hoping for something more than this.
