Cade Yeager, a "robotics expert", buys an old truck and upon examining it, he thinks it's a Transformer. When he powers it up, he discovers it's 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.

Darcy, you really shouldn't have come.

was adamant. We keep running.

No stopping operations.

No, no, no. You got to go through.

No cameras.

He's got orders to kill.

I don't even think

international laws apply up here.

We are geologists first.

If this thing

has any historical significance at all,

we are shutting down.

I'm shutting us down.

He's going to shoot me? Shoot me.

Hey, don't kill her.

This is crazy stuff.

Crazy sh*t.

Well, what do you think?

I think history is about to change.

I'm a nasty woman

Look who decided

to show up for work.

I'm a heartbreaker

Gonna make you cry

What, surf report no good

at South Padre?

The waves are flat and I got no gas.

You know that, Cade.

Dude. Rude.

Look at these two junebugs.

Whoo! My, my!

Hey, you're paying me on this one,

right, Cade?

Please tell me I'm getting paid.

You know, Lucas, a lot of guys

are just happy to have a job at all.

Yeah, I suppose.

- You got any cash on you?

- Yeah.

All right, good.

Hey, Lucas Flannery.

Place has been

in the family since '28.

Granddaddy ran it all his life.

Ain't that right, Granddaddy?

Real soon

he's going to sign it over to me.

The movies nowadays,

that's the trouble.

Sequels and remakes, bunch of crap.

I love that one.

He's deaf and senile.

Heard that.

Now these just need

some spit and polish.

I believe they're digital, possibly IMAX.

Yeah, they're not.

Mister, we'll have a look around

if you want to leave us to it, okay?

You know, folks used to come

from miles around

to see the dancing girls

with the big cha-chas.

I swear to God

I am one diaper change away

from poisoning his oatmeal.

Hey, you hang in there, buddy.

If coming here makes you feel young,

then you tell this kid

to bring you here every day.

Seven bucks, I keep talking.


Remember this place

when we were kids?

How many girls you think

you brought here in high school?

I only remember one.

Hey, heads!

That's why you didn't make

the varsity team.

All right. Go long.

Leave it.

Mortar shells?

What the hell happened to you?

Hey, snakeballs.

How much for the truck?


Two more weeks, girls,

till no more classes, ever.

Almost time to get a tan and get wasted!

Please, please.

No financial aid. Great.

Yes, I know I'm home, thank you.

Intruder alert!

Back away from the premises!

- Voice recognition. It's me!

- I am dialing 911.

Go right ahead. I don't care.

I'm still calling 911.

The Battle of Chicago was an event

that permanently changed our world.

Over 1,300 dead.

Much of the city has been destroyed.

Homeland Security is urging everyone

to report suspicious alien activity.

A swift act of Congress

put an end to all joint operations

between the military and the Autobots,

ending the alliance.

As this committee knows,

the Invasion of Chicago

was a defining day

for our nation five years ago.

The day millions of people realized that

never again can we allow aliens

to fight our battles for us.

A handful of Autobots

were given sanctuary

after joint-combat operations

were abolished.

Fewer than a dozen Decepticons

are still on the run

thanks to our CIA unit,

"Cemetery Wind."

Hurry, let's get it

to my house, guys.

As for the alien technology,

our objective remains

to keep it in American control.

Hi. My name is Timothy.

This is my crew.

We found this alien ball turret

in Chicago.

We just found it in the rubble

and it's all working...

Word has it Japan, India,

the Israelis may have gotten their hands

on a couple of ships.

Apparently the Russians

are starting a bidding war.

We're taking $5,000 for it.

It's got 36 guns, alien sh*t.

A new era has begun.

And the age of the Transformers is over.


Hey, I've been waiting for you.

You're looking hot today!


How about you take your shirt off?

You want me to take my shirt off

right now?

What would your dad think of that?

- What the hell?

- Hey, where you going?

I cannot believe him.

I cannot believe this.

What the hell?

All the way!

A truck?

Dad, please tell me

you didn't spend our money on this.

No, don't worry, he didn't.

He spent my money.

A hundred and fifty bucks of it.

As an advance

on your regular paycheck.

- What regular paycheck?

- Which you will get back.

- When?

- Never. We're broke.

I knew it.

Sweetheart, could you please not

drive a wedge

between employer and employee.

Hold on. I thought we were partners.

Look, I came up short, okay?

I had to buy her a prom dress.

You want me to deny her a prom dress?

You might as well.

You denied her a prom date.

No, I offered to take her and chaperone.

Nobody wants to go to the dance

with their dad. It's weird.

It's not the issue.

Well, maybe it should be.

Hey, could you guys

just get off my case?

You know what the engine

on this runs for?

I can break it down and strip it for parts.

And sweetheart, your shorts

are shrinking by the second, okay?

Cold water, air dry, please.

I think she looks hot.

What did you say?

Like a hot teenager.

It's the "teenager" thing

that makes it better. Thank you.

It didn't sound like what it meant.

That goes by the circuit boards.

Put the Zeiss lenses over there.

Dad, please. You can't keep

spending money on junk

just so you can turn it

into different junk.

We do not use the "J" word in here.
