After the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leveled Chicago, humanity thinks that all alien robots are a threat. So Harold Attinger, a CIA agent, establishes a unit whose sole purpose is to hunt down all of them. But it turns out that they are aided by another alien robot who is searching for Optimus Prime. Cade Yeager, a "robotics expert", buys an old truck and upon examining it, he thinks its a Transformer. When he powers it up, he discovers its Optimus Prime. Later, men from the unit show up looking for Optimus. He helps Yeager and his daughter Tessa escape but are pursued by the hunter. They escape and Yeager learns from technology he took from the men that a technology magnate and defense contractor named Joshua Joyce is part of whats going on, so they go to find out whats going on.
|nudity||Two women are shown walking across the street in tight clothing, short shorts. The daughter video chats with her boyfriend. He asks ifs she wants him to take his shirt off. Camera view switches to behind the daughters behind/legs, then a man says that "I think she looks hot" and that she's a "hot teenager" and the other man becomes angry. A man describes movies from an earlier time where there were "dancing girls with big cha-chas." During a car chase scene, a guy makes a sexual innuendo. He tells the girl to grab his stick, says "she has the best hands in the business" talking about his gear shifter. Some kissing|
|violence||Many scenes of intense robot action occur intermittently throughout the film. Explosions, shrapnel and carnage are frequent. The robots often "bleed" mechanical fluids. Some robots are shot in the head, or impaled by swords through the chest. Early in the film (45min) one of the human 'good guys' is killed in a large explosion; there are several lingering shots of the charred remains of this body (still stood up, mid-run), coated in places with metal. Some camera angles show the body still on fire. A human character late in the film is killed via a laser blast to the chest. A large burn mark is seen. Two men fight briefly and then a man throws another man out the window to his death. Another brief hand to hand combat between a women and two men. A guy from the elevator helps out. 5/10|
|profanity||1 bleeped out "fuck" word. A lot of uses of "ass", "shit", "bitch" and "crap" words.|
|alcohol||A teen girl talks about high school being nearly over and says that, "Soon we can get a tan and get wasted." A man drinks a beer. A teen girl brings her father dinner that includes a bottle of beer (we do not see him drink.) A truck load of beer bottles is strewn on the ground after a crash and one man grabs a bottle and opens it before taking a drink. A robot looks like he has a lit cigar in his mouth for the majority of the movie.|
|frightening||An early death in the film, detailed under the Violence & Gore section, may scare young viewers. The scenes of robot action tend to be quite long and gratuitous. Children may be overwhelmed. A lot of mayhem and destruction in the last climax of the movie.|
