Is it Optimus Prime or Sentinel Prime? Sentinel, I can definitely see do that. Optimus, probably not, unless it's in absolute self defense. I hope it doesn't happen. I actually had high hopes they would do Megatron right this time. At least they got his design right...

Im sure you guys already know by now but Prime doesn infact tear Megatron apart with Megatron almost defenceless. I 'spose he is justified, (pay-back even for ROTF?) but it just felt so un-Prime to kill Megs like that.

It's almost as if Bay looked at Wolverine in the X-men movies and decided Optimus was going to be the Autobot's bad-ass anti-hero. It's like you can't have a decent and moral hero anymore.

THIS. As long as you totally disregard everything you know about Optimus Prime prior to the ROTF (even in the 2007 movie, he's a pretty peaceful guy; only violent when he has to be and is remorseful afterwards), the Prime in ROTF and DOTM is totally fine. He's just some badass, ruthless warrior who tear apart anyone who threatens his adopted home...and occasionally preaches about freedom and genocide against enemies in the same sentence.

I'm a little surprised Bay didn't have him put on a leather trenchcoat at some point and bang Arcee.

Don't know. Sorry, a bit tired right now, guess I read some criticism...

In my opinion the movie ending is better and makes sense... Megatron tells Optimus that he wanted to remain leader and live another day, and Prime is sick of the Decepticons so he kills him, in the book.... Like Megatron says... in order to rebuild Cybertron.... EARTH WOULD HAVE TO DIE,PRIME ACCEPTING MEGATRON AS A GOOD GUY IS A MASSIVE PLOTHOLE.... AND PRIME WANTS T0 DEFEND EARTH, SO HE SHOULD'VE KILLED HIM, LIKE IN THE MOVIE
