The children's cartoon sci-fi series from the 1980s is brought bang up-to-date in this big-budget, live-action blockbuster with all the essential, state-of-the-art effects you could possibly want. Long ago, on the planet of Cybertron, an alien race divided into two camps - the Autobots, and the evil Decepticons. In an effort to prevent the Decepticons from gaining possession of the 'Allspark', a cube with the capacity to grant infinite power, the Autobots managed to smuggle the object to Earth, where they secretly hid it. Now, hundreds of years later, with the Decepticons searching for the cube, it's a race against time, as the Autobots enlist the help of young earthling Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) to foil the Decepticons' plans for world domination.
