Abstract

Transformer 2 Revenge of The Fallen is the second sequel movie of Transformer which tells about the revenge of the Fallen on the earth. The Fallen is the leader of the villain robot group who has ambition to take revenge on the earth by destroying the sun to get energon and built an army. In order to accomplish his ambition, the Fallen mobilizes his army to make the commotion in several places. There are three main places that become the Fallen’s target to get his purpose. Those are: China, America, and Egypt. The appearance of those countries is an attraction of the story, and also has implicit message about the influence of cultural strength from those countries since those countries come from three different continents in the world. The aim of this research is to figure out the constructed meaning of the portrayal of China, America, and Egypt in the movie. To answer the research question, the researcher uses the constructionist approach of the representation theory by Stuart Hall and the movie theory. The researcher gets three constructed meanings. First, the portrait of China constructs the meaning as a country that does the development of infrastructure actively without realizing its impact to the environment. Second, the portrait of America constructs the meaning as a country that cares about the balance between the reforestation area and the developments of infrastructure. Last, the portrait of Egypt constructs the meaning as a country which sticks to the historical heritage of their ancestors from the ancient time until the recent time. Furthermore, the researcher also concludes that the portrait of America in the movie is the most beautiful and advanced country compared to China and Egypt, even though if those three countries are compared, China and Egypt are countries that are more superior to America in economy and history portion. However in popular culture, in these case movies, America has always been placed itself as the center country, while putting others as the margin literal perspective.
