Transformers: War For Two Worlds is the third Transformers movie and a sequel to both Transformers: Robots in Disguise and Transformers 2: Rise of Unicron. It was directed by Zack Snyder with music by Hans Zimmer and stars Michael Cera, Emma Stone, Liam Neeson and Patrick Stewart.


In 1961, a ship known as the Ark departs Cybertron carrying technology capable of ending the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. However, it crashes on the Earth's moon and is noticed by humans on Earth. President Kennedy authorizes a NASA mission to put man on the moon and investigate the craft in secret. The crew of Apollo 11 discover the wreck on the dark side of the moon. 

In the present day, MECH remains in operation, although the Decepticons have yet to resurface. Instead, the Autobots begin to assist the humans in other conflicts, such as destroying an illegal Iranian nuclear plant. During a mission to Chernobyl, the MECH team discovers a Cybertronian fuel cell which was responsible for the Chernobyl disaster. Suddenly, the Decepticon Shockwave appears and attacks them, but Autobot leader Optimus Prime fights him off. He then berates the humans for not disclosing all of their knowledge of Cybertron to them. Optimus and Ratchet visit the moon and recover the Ark. They discover a comatose Autobot named Ultra-Magnus and four space bridge pillars and bring them back to Earth, where Optimus revives Ultra-Magnus. 

Meanwhile, Daniel Witwicky is having trouble in life. Although President Keller honoured him with a medal for his bravery, he cannot find himself a job. He eventually winds up working as a mail carrier for Prometheus Systems, a telecommunications company. One day, at work, Daniel's old friend Carlos Lopez arrives and tells him about humans who are working with the Decepticons. Before Daniel can learn anymore, Laserbeak arrives and attacks them, sending Carlos through a window to his doom.

Daniel turns to another old friend, Seymour Simmons, for help. They find out that the Soviets had taken photos of the Decepticons moving pillars from the Ark prior to the Apollo 11 mission. They deduce that the Decepticons knew that only Optimus could revive Ultra-Magnus and left him behind on purpose. They inform the Autobots, who form a convoy to protect Ultra-Magnus from being attacked by the Decepticons and take to a MECH base. However, Ultra-Magnus reveals that he believes that the Autobots could never win the war, and for the sake of Cybertron, struck a deal with Megatron. He then kills Ironhide and several MECH soldiers before escaping with the remaining pillars. The Autobots, including Optimus, pursue Ultra-Magnus to Washington DC, where Ultra-Magnus activates a space bridge, allowing Decepticons who have been hiding on the moon to invade the capital. 

Daniel searches frantically for his girlfriend Carly Spencer in the chaos and finds her with his boss, Prometheus Black. Black reveals that he is collaborating with the Decepticons, his father having previously used his influence to prevent further moon missions, keeping the Ark safe. They try to escape in Carly's car, which reveals itself as Sideways. Daniel escapes but Carly is taken.

The Decepticons order that the humans exile the Autobots from Earth. MECH is disbanded and the government passes a bill which forces the Autobots to leave the planet. As they board their ship, Daniel meets Optimus and asks him what his plan is. Optimus sadly informs him that there is no plan; humanity is on it's own. As they depart, Starscream intercepts the ship and destroys it. The Autobots are presumed dead.

The Decepticons place the pillars around the globe, setting up their main base of operations in Scramble City. Black reveals to Carly that the Decepticons are going to transport Cybertron into Earth's atmosphere and use humans as slaves to rebuild it. Daniel heads for Scramble City to rescue Carly and is assisted by a small team of former MECH soldiers. As they arrive, they are attacked by Sideways, when suddenly Optimus and the other Autobots arrive and kill him. Optimus explains that they had hidden in a rocket which had been jettisoned from their ship before Starscream destroyed it. They all make their way to the tower where Black is holding Carly and rescue her, although Black escapes. Laserbeak attacks but is destroyed by Bumblebee.

The team alerts the army to the Decepticons plan and Simmons valiantly leads the rest of MECH into battle. Ultra-Magnus and Megatron get into a violent arguement which leaves Megatron weak. Starscream approaches him and mocks him, telling him that he will now finally kill him and take over Decepticon command. However, Megatron outwits him and kills him. During the battle, Optimus confronts Shockwave and rips him in half, then takes his cannon to destroy the pillars and disable the bridge. 

An enraged Ultra-Magnus attacks Optimus and an epic fight breaks out between the two. Having witnesses his previous encounters, Carly approaches Megatron and tells him that he will never rule Cybertron as long as Ultra-Magnus is around. Daniel confronts Black in the rubble, where he is trying to reactivate the pillar. Daniel knocks him into the pillar, killing him, destroying the space bridge and taking Cybertron with it. 

Ultra-Magnus pins Optimus down and is about to finish him when Megatron intervenes, wounding Ultra-Magnus and throwing him a side. He then challenges Optimus to a final showdown. During the ensuing battle, Optimus loses an arm but manages to stab Megatron through the head with an axe and rip his head off, finally killing the Decepticon warlord. As he approaches Ultra-Magnus, the fallen foe pleads for his life, explaining to Optimus that he was only trying to save Cybertron. Optimus points out that his efforts have only led to the planet's destruction and the needless deaths of many, but adds that he won't kill him. Just then, Ultra-Magnus makes one final move to try and kill Optimus, but the Autobot hero executes him with his own cannon. 

In the aftermath, Daniel and Carly kiss and and profess their love for each other. With Cybertron gone, the Autobots accept Earth as their new home. MECH is reopened as the Autobots will be sticking around. As Daniel and Carly kiss, Bumblebee uses his radio to play wedding music.

[Daniel has realised that Black is a traitor]

Carly Spencer: Was it all worth it?

Megatron: Of course! Cybertron has been saved at last, and now I shall rule it as I have always dreamed!

Carly Spencer: [Laughs] It's actually almost tragic, when you think about it. After all of your hard work...and now Ultra-Magnus has all the power!

Megatron: You dare to lecture me, SLAVE?

Carly Spencer: Your Decepticons have finally conquered Earth AND Cybertron, yet their leader won't be you!

Megatron: NO! It WILL be me, it always be ME! There is no command but MINE!

Carly Spencer: Any minute now, once the Autobots are defeated and the world belongs to the'll be nothing, but Magnus' bitch!
