    I'll always remember Optimus Prime as a kind, wise leader. Who executed a man, begging for his life, at point blank range with a shotgun.

      The begging old man who was just about to kill him while he was begging for mercy and was also responsible for the death of 13k people

      @Logan B. Sentinel killed Optimus's men, human civilians and nearly killed Optimus himself. How does that make him wrong for killing a turncoat?

      @Electric Fever X it's a *joke* it's pretty clear Optimus was justified it's just funny the absolutely unnecessarily brutal way he kills him.

    I still can’t get over the fact that Optimus Prime, a cartoon character made to sell toys to children, tore Megatron’s head off with an axe if it were God Of War, and then proceeded to blow Sentinel Prime’s head open with a shotgun as he was begging for mercy….
    This franchise is wild

    Black Knight Rex Year ago +1471

    What's funny about the ending of this film is that apparently it wsnt the original ending.
    The novelization, which is based on the script at the time, ends it with Optimus only killing Sentinel, and not only he is more conflicted about it, but him and Megatron even decide to end the war with a truce because they are both just done with the fighting.
    There is even a little jab at the usual characterization of Optimus when he goes "unlike you, I wont kill someone who is looking for peace" when Megatron tries to goad Optimus to try killing him for a moment.

    It’s honestly kinda sad how badly the movie turned out, the original draft actually leaked a few years back and had things like Megatron actually talking with Optimus about how far they had both fallen before teaming up with with him to try and save both planets. It’s a shame we’ll never get to see how that story panned out.

    • JimBobJoeB0b

      Didn't the Decepticon faction originate from transformers who wanted to abolish an oppressive caste system that put the value of a life on the usefulness of their alternate form?

      But yeah, not the best idea in concept.

    • Dog God
      Dog God Year ago +903

      @Michael M Considering they're robots, the filmmakers could have just "deactivated" him or had him "power down" or something, but they made the active decision to show him kneeling and begging for his life as our hero, Optimus Prime, sets a shotgun against his head and blows his robo brains out. With robo blood effects.

    • Alex Denton
      Alex Denton Year ago +854

      I still can’t believe that Optimus Prime, the goodest of good guys, fucking ripped Megatron’s head and spine out of his body and then shot a man in the back of the head while he begged for his life.

    • Qprah

    Fun fact, Laser beak is an actual Decepticon that acts as Soundwave's pet/friend. He is extremally loyal and acts more like a bird and doesn't talk in the original series.

    In this one movie you have:
    1) An entire city getting destroyed and its civilians massacred.
    2) Robots getting publicly executed by firing squads.
    3) Robots dying violent deaths, like getting their heads blown off from bombs in their eyes, getting torn limb by limb etc.
    4) Optimus just decapitating Megatron and then domes Sentinel twice in the head as he begs for his life.

      The OG ending was Optimus Prime making a truce with Megatron and they helped re-construct Cybertron.

    Real Waifus? Year ago +728

    And once again we watch Optimus Prime’s decent into sociopathy deepen as the stress of fighting a war for thousands of years that has cost him his home and countless comrades strips away his morality, forcing him to greater and greater acts of violence, compromising his capacity for mercy in an endless struggle against an enemy that threatens to push him beyond his limits and force him to abandon his morals in a desperate hope he will still be the lesser evil. In this episode we watch a crucial moment in his story as his mentor betrays everything he thought he believed in, challenging Optimus in a way no other foe ever could and cementing that there is indeed no way back from everything he has seen and experienced and that the struggle of Optimus Prime to retain himself in a world that only seeks to break him in mind body and spirit is far from over.

  • Theatre Josh
    Theatre Josh Year ago +207

    In regards to the plot operating on "nine-year-old" logic, yeah, that's deliberate. A lot of the major plot points apart from Sentinel Prime being a traitor (the Decepticons convincing Earth to banish the Autobots, destroying the Autobot ship as they are leaving, taking now-defenseless humankind as slave labour, and transporting Cybertron into Earth's orbit) are pulled directly from episodes of the 1980s cartoon series. Specifically, the episodes "Megatron's Master Plan" and "The Ultimate Doom." Even Megatron sitting on Lincoln's throne is a nod to the original cartoon. Honestly, I find that to be a breath of fresh air into the films. It feels like the start of them making at least some effort to evoke any of the lore from elsewhere in the franchise. Of course, by the time _The Last Knight_ comes around, it devolves into utter incomprehensibility.

    I wish they brought up the parts where Starscream dies after somebody sticks a spike grenade in his eye and the standard anti-transformer strategy used by infantry is sniping out the eyes so other troopers can blow off their legs.
    This movie is a fuckin war film using transformers and I kinda love it.

      A few other plot elements are lifted from the cartoon - for example, the Autobots being exiled by rocket, then being thought to have been killed by the Decepticons was from Megatron's Master Plan (although in that episode, the intended method of killing was to program the rocket into the sun).

I like both of G1 and the movies, and the movies got me into transformers. These movies do have a bunch of flaws, from the bad jokes, and the brutality that I don’t think anyone likes, but man I wonder how these movies blew up in the first place, because it seems like literally everyone and their mother hates these movies anyways. Hm likely it’s because of the toys and the kids watching the movies.

      @LegoWafflesThe1st I mean, these movies were always considered bad movies, with the first one being the exception. The only reason people tolerated them and the movies did well financially was because they were big blockbuster action movies that came out at a time when dumb action movies could thrive regardless of quality. Plus, they had a recognizable brand. People do appreciate parts of these movies, the fight scenes and CGI, but that's about it.

    It's funny you say that, actually, because in one of the tie-in comics for this movie right before he kills Ironhide (or after, I don't remember) he says something about how he never liked his "kind", since Ironhide was mentioned previously as essentially being a different sub-type of Cybertronian.
    So in other words, yes, Sentinel Prime is racist.

Also the war started in the film more or less the sameway in the comic, with Megatron being a miner turned philosopher and gladiator leading the oppressed Cybertronians to rise against their high council, who were being protected by the Autobots.
