We use animals to sustain ourselves, why would Sentinel be a douche for doing the same? Sentinel is a douche for his attitude towards his autobots. Optimus took the moral highground in the only way he knows, killing whatever stands in his path.

Megatron tries the same thing as Sentinel, but has one HUUUUUUGE criminal record. Honestly, can we expect Optimus to hug, kiss and make up with Megatron?


Well if you remember the first movie, when Bumblebee got captured by S7, all the other Autobots were there when it happened. So if they had the same mindset as Sentinel (kill all that stand in our way) then they would have just killed the humans right there but instead allowed Bumblebee to get captured with no human loses. They allowed him to be sacrificed so they could show they weren't hostile towards humans. They could have also killed the humans that sided with Megatron in the third movie. But as Autobots they protected the humans because they are on their planet and thus want to form a bond with them. Sentinel made a pact with Megatron thus his "Autobotness" deminished and he could basically be considered a Decepticon. He killed one of his own, Ironhide aka a Cybertronian, in order to 'save' those exact Cybertronians. The Autobots never wanted to destroy Cybertron, they just did not agree with how the Decepticons were going to 'save' their home planet.

Think of what war is. There is a good side and bad side. Usually the bad side will destroy anything that gets in their way in order to live out their master plan, where as the good side will defend all of those who the bad side happen to be attacking.

Uh.. No.. Not IMHO..

*Attacks Sentinel*

Megatron: NO... We need a truce... All I want is to be back in charge.. Besides, who would you be without me?

Optimus: Time to find out


Ok, He wants a truce but wants to be in charge.. Uh, yeah what about sharing control or something like that? No, IMHO Megatron was NOT being humble, the truce he offered was bullshit unless he got his way. And he was being a cocky prick with his last statement.
Optimus did what he had to do against a tyrannical individual that wanted to rule.

Sentinel: Optimus... [spoiler]All I ever wanted was the survival of our race.. you must see why I had to betray you..

Optimus: You didn't betray me, You betrayed yourself.

Sentinel: NO OPTIMUS!!


The bastard deserved it for what he did.


You even remember that much of the lines? I hardly remember any big lines and dialogues.

But you're right, they both needed to be eliminated.

I haven't heard many people complain on why Megatron died, just that the final 'fight' was too damn short. It's literally just 10 seconds of Optimus hacking Megatron apart. Regardless of Megatron's condition, that's an incredibly anti-climatic close.

I think it worked out well. Megatron was an intergalactic dictator that couldn't be trusted. It was his time.

Both the Prime/Megs fightscenes in the previous movies where huge and memorable. I sure entered the theatre with hopes of a big final battle.

Bay, I am dissapoint.
