The Truth of Transformers 2: Esoteric Analysis
Jay Dyer - June 26, 2009
Yes, I admit it, I went to see Transformers 2. It was so bad I was hoping it would transform into a different movie. But what can you expect from Michael Bay. While this movie had almost nothing good about it, there are a couple conspiratorial/esoteric elements worth mentioning. Shia Labeouf’s character moves off to college and happens to fall in with a band of annoying preppy, frat-boy “conspiracy theorists” who run a website devoted to exposing the truth about government coverups. This was clearly a reference to yours truly (just kidding). What is interesting about this was the portrayal of the “conspiracy.” The theorists had been speculating along with others about the existence of aliens among us. What we find out is that the “alien Transformers” are really ancient deities with super advanced technology and they are among us - some protecting, others seeking to destroy. But between the hour-long explosions and the 75 trademark Michael Bay lense flares, we can perceive a deeper meaning.
