Where as, Megatron had the all spark actually INSERTED into his spark chamber, leaving it a charred hole. So it would make more sense to me than an all spark shard would be more effective on optimus. And I get Megatron was rebuilt prior to reanimation, but couldn't ratchet had repaired him enough for him to be brought back to life? That, and Sam knew of the second shards existance 30 minutes into the movie, you would have thought he would have at least tried it first before venturing off into the unknown, right?
Either way, I don't need a seemless plot to enjoy a movie about bots and cons, so I liked it regardless, LOL
Here are the problems with your theory.
1.) His "abs" were rebuilt, and intact, and looked as they did prior to his killing blow.
2.) Sam rammed the Matrix into his chest cavity between the two windshield pieces.
3.) Both the Voyager and Leader Class toys are rather accurate to the CGI model, at least from the front, and the Matrix cavity is above his abs.
The All Spark's energy was released into Megatron's chest/spark chamber, with a shard left over (the one Optimus took), but the cube itself never entered his body.
Optimus told Sam to run. He wasn't concerned with his own safety. With Prime dying, Decepticons everywhere, and the crew shattered and shook to their core, no one was thinking clearly. To top that off, The Fallen had made their presence known, which caused hysteria.
Plus, fate decided that Sam needed to recover the Matrix by accepting his destiny.
Is it perfect? No. Is it full of plot holes? No.
