That wasn't at all what he was talking about. If you tl;dr'd this post then don't reply at all.
Haha.. NO trolling here. Buuuuutt...... After looking back i can defenatly see how that could have been "bating". My apoligies to the OP.
The point is was trying to make is that is was funny to be going from one extreme to another. On one side we have people saying not enough character development, then we go to another extreme were someone says the part was actually played to well, and by comparison, made the rest of the characters seem inferior. I agree that Leonard Nimoy was to Sentinel Prime what Heath Ledger was to the Joker. He was a stand out character, and in many ways did out shine the rest of the TF cast and very much made the movie. BUt i think that was part of the point. Not every character is always going to get the same treatment. I think extra focus was need on Sentinel to deliver the impact that he had. And the fact that Leonard Nimoy voice acted.. Just icing on the cake. IMO, no one could have played the part better. wether or not you like the character design (More human face and beard) is personal taste. To me it was a bit easier to relate his character to the general audience. One moment he seemed like a nobal believer of the autobot cause, next he was a traitor hell bent on enslaving the human race.
Exellent character. By far the best of the movieverse.
