Burning up $1.1 billion of filmgoers’ pocket money worldwie (making it the fourth-biggest box office earner of all time) director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg’s mega-sequel delivers more of the same, and more, in 3D (and glorious 7.1 surround): When a Cybertronian spacecraft is discovered on the Moon only the Autobots can prevent the evil Deceptions from discovering its secrets and destroying planet Earth. The usual suspects — Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro — are joined by retirement-fund padders Patrick Dempsey, Frances McDormand, and John Malkovich, with Leonard Nimoy and Hugo Weaving phoning in the voices of Sentinel Prime and Megatron.
