Plot Summary: Deep in the deserts of Qatar, a U.S. military base is destroyed by a Decepticon disguised as an Air Force helicopter. Capt. William Lennox and his surviving troops must get in contact with the Pentagon and warn the U.S. government of the new threat. Meanwhile, in suburban America, high school student Sam Witwicky buys his first car in the form of a rusted 1976 Chevrolet Camaro - only to discover that it transforms into the Autobot Bumblebee. Shortly afterwards, Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Jazz and Ratchet arrive on Earth to protect Sam and prevent Megatron and the Decepticons from acquiring the mysterious cube known as the "Allspark."
