On the list of things that are wrong with the Bayverse (continuity errors, enemy scrotum, etc.), Prime's slight personality tweaks rank very, very, very low.

Megatron has a habit of doing this. I'm reminded of the line "We'll terminate the Autobots at our leisure, when our more important work is done." He also repeated Hitler's Dunkirk blunder at least once with "Hey Starscream, let the Autobots win so I can kill them with acid rain instead"

Prime responds with "I'm about to find out!" and then kills him.
Megatron: "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."
It sounds like Megatron wants Optimus to serve him while the human slaves rebuild Cybertron, and Optimus sure wasn't about to put up with that.

As for what it means to be an Autobot in the movie-verse... just look at in the first movie, when Ironhide wants to exterminate Mojo, and then Sam's parents for being annoying. Would that have ever come up in a G1 episode? I don't think so....
Indeed, Ironhide was much more out-of-character than Optimus ever was. THAT bugged me... but not as much as "you know we don't harm humans" literally minutes
after they've arrived on an unknown alien planet for the very first time.

The MPAA rating indicates that it's aimed at the 13+ crowd.
