BC: The End The End
FC: Ashmira Patel Period 2 English March 14, 2007
3: A long time ago, far away on the planet of Cybertron, a war was being waged between the noble Autobots (led by the wise Optimus Prime) and the devious Decepticons (commanded by the dreaded Megatron) for control over the Allspark, a mystical talisman that would grant unlimited power to whoever possessed it. The Autobots managed to smuggle the Allspark off the planet, but Megatron blasted off in search of it. He eventually tracked it to the planet of Earth (circa 1850), but his reckless desire for power sent him right into the Arctic Ocean, and the sheer cold forced him into a paralyzed state. His body was later found by Captain Archibald Witwicky, and before going into a comatose state Megatron used the last of his energy to engrave a map, showing the location of the Allspark, into the Captain's glasses, and send a transmission to Cybertron. He is then carted away by the Captain's ship. A century later, Sam Witwicky, nicknamed Spike by his friends, buys his first car. To his shock, he discovers it to be Bumblebee, an Autobot in disguise who is to protect Sam, as he bears the Captain's glasses and the map carved on them. But Bumblebee is not the only Transformer to have arrived on Earth - in the desert of Qatar, the Decepticons Blackout and Scorponok attack a U.S. military base, causing the Pentagon to send their special Sector Seven agents to capture all "specimens of this alien race," and Sam and his girlfriend Mikaela find themselves in the middle of a grand battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons, stretching from Hoover Dam all the way to Los Angeles.
5: The film opens with Optimus Prime, heroic leader of the benevolent Autobots, describing in a voice-over the destruction of the Transformers' home world, Cybertron. It was destroyed by the evil Decepticon leader Megatron in his quest to obtain the All Spark. The Autobots want to find the All Spark so they can use it to rebuild Cybertron and end the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons, while the Decepticons want to use it to defeat the Autobots and conquer the universe. Megatron found the All Spark on Earth, but crash-landed in the Arctic Circle and was frozen in the ice. Captain Archibald Witwicky and his crew of explorers stumbled upon Megatron's body in 1897. Captain Witwicky accidentally activated Megatron's navigational system and his eye glasses were imprinted with the coordinates of the All Spark's location. Sector 7, a secret United States government organization, discovered the All Spark in the Colorado River and built the Hoover Dam around it to mask its energy emissions. The still-frozen Megatron was moved into this facility and was reverse engineered to advance human technology.
6: Captain Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and ACWO Jorge "Fig" Figueroa (Amaury Nolasco) fend off an alien attack. The characters are part of a seven-man Joint Special Operations Command team in Qatar, who survive Blackout's attack on the base. Lennox has a wife and newborn daughter in the United States.
7: In the present day, the rest of the Decepticons—Blackout, Scorponok, Frenzy, Barricade, Starscream, Devastator and Bonecrusher—have landed on Earth and assumed the disguise of Earth vehicles (except Scorponok, who hides within Blackout). Blackout and Scorponok attack the U.S. SOCCENT FWD military base in Qatar and try to hack into the U.S. military network to find the location of Megatron and the All Spark. Their mission is thwarted when the base staff severs the network cable connections. While Blackout destroys the rest of the base, Scorponok chases a small group of survivors who have photographic evidence of the robots, but he is eventually repelled. During this battle, the military discovers its only effective weapons against the Transformers' armor are high-heat sabot rounds.
8: Bumblebee (left) transforms into a 1977 Chevrolet Camaro, and upgrades into the 2009 model. | Megan Fox (right) plays Sam's crush, Mikaela Banes, whom he woos with Bumblebee's help. Banes is mechanically skilled because her father was a car thief. | Bumblebee (up) communicates with radio soundbites because of his damaged vocal processor. | Shia LaBeouf (left) stars as Sam Witwicky, the teenager who unknowingly buys Bumblebee as his first car.
9: After Blackout's failure, Frenzy infiltrates Air Force One to again hack into the military network, and plants a virus. He finds the map imprinted on Captain Witwicky's glasses, whose descendant Sam, intends to sell on eBay. Frenzy and Barricade begin tracking Sam's location. The Autonomous Robotic Organism (shortened to "Autobot") Bumblebee is also on Earth, disguised as a 1976 Chevrolet Camaro, and is bought by Sam while shopping for his first car. Bumblebee helps him woo his crush, Mikaela Banes. Bumblebee leaves at night to transmit a homing signal to the rest of the Autobots and Sam sees him in robot mode. Barricade confronts Sam and demands Archibald's spectacles, but Bumblebee rescues him and Mikaela. They leave to meet up with the rest of the Autobots—Optimus Prime, Jazz, Ironhide, and Ratchet—who have landed on Earth and taken the forms of Earth vehicles as well. Sam, Mikaela, and the Autobots return to Sam's home and obtain the glasses; however, agents from Sector 7 arrive and capture Sam, Mikaela and Bumblebee.
10: Frenzy, a small and vicious spy who transforms into a boombox, and later into a mobile phone.
11: Frenzy, disguised as a cellphone, secretly accompanies the group to Hoover Dam and releases Megatron from his frozen state. Locating the All Spark, Frenzy sends an alert to the other Decepticons. Sam convinces the Sector 7 agents to release Bumblebee so that he can get the All Spark to Optimus Prime. Frenzy's virus has shut down government communications, but a group of humans manage to establish a signal to the Air Force in order to support the Autobot-human convoy, who have gone to Mission City (which is 22 miles away) to hide the All Spark. The Decepticons attack and Bonecrusher, Frenzy, Jazz, Devastator and Blackout are all killed during the ensuing battle. Sam, who is ordered to get the All Spark to a meeting point for it to be taken to a safe location, instead chooses to ram it into Megatron's chest, destroying the All Spark and killing Megatron. Optimus takes a fragment of the All Spark from Megatron's corpse, but realizes that with its destruction, their home world Cybertron cannot be restored. Consequently, Optimus sends a signal to other surviving Autobots in the universe, directing them to their new home, Earth. The government orders the closure of Sector 7 and has the four Decepticons killed in Mission City battle dumped into the Laurentian Abyss. Starscream, who fled the battle, escapes into space.
12: Megatron, the Decepticon leader who crash-landed in the Arctic thousands of years ago in his quest to obtain the Allspark. When he is defrosted he keeps his original alien jet form out of vanity. | Blackout transforms into a MH-53J Pave Low III helicopter, with his minion Scorponok attaching to him.

16: Conflict Conflict is the struggle or clash between opposing characters of forces. In the movie Transformers, there are many conflicts. There is one just between humans and there is one between the Autobots and the Decepticons. There is also one between the humans and the Autobots and the Decepticons. Basically, there is just conflict everywhere. The conflict between the humans is where Sector 7 captures Sam and Mikaela. They also take Bumblebee. The conflict between the Decepticons and the Autobots takes place throughout the whole movie. They are fighting over the allspark and Archibald Witwicky's glasses. The conflict between humans and Autobots and Decepticons also occurs throughout the whole movie.
17: Personification Personification is when a nonhuman thing is given human characteristics. In the movie Transformers, the Autobots and the Decepticons are the ones with personification. They have the ability to talk and fight. They also have the use of hands and a brain to think for themselves.
