    I think it's fairly obvious that he wanted to kill him...with the, "time to find out" and ripping out of head and spine.

    Come on, we know Megatron's "truce" was just a line of bullshit, Optimus knew he couldn't be trusted, Sentinel had to die because he betrayed himself and the values of the primes

    He'd never stop at one. He wanted to kill them all.

    I'm pretty sure he could have let him live if he had really wanted, but this is Movie Prime, he just thinks of survivors as a failure on his part.

    He's not giving Megatron anymore chances to come back and cause more death and destruction. Sounds good to me.

    He was obviously trying to kill Megatron, which is actually something that I find funny about this Optimus: He's the only Optimus who feels NO sympathy for Megatron [even G1 Optimus was more reasonable with Megs], he wants him dead and buried. end of the story, he isn't going to give him a chance for redemption.

    Which, let's be fair, its a far more realistic approach of the whole issue: Megatron is basically a Cybertronian Hitler [I'm serious here, they actually have similar worldviews and history], no sane man would let him walk away.

    its how the movies go the good guys must win. the end of the third movie completely sucked. to me its the only thing i truly hate about the movie. very shity optimus would have never got that kill if megaton wasn't caught off guard. i mean optimus just slings a axe at him. oohh well transformers 4 rise of galvatron coming soon.

    Oh, please. Why the hell would he let him live after he tried to kill everyone not only on Cybertron, but Earth as well - three times?

    He's a freakin' warrior, not a monk. Comics suck, because they never let the bad guy get killed just so they can continue making more.

    Prime has seemed just as brutal as Megatron on a number of occassions, but granted, without the dreams of conquest or participating in that whole Sun Harvester thing.

    If you're thinking noone dies in the comics, such as the Marvel run, you are grossly underestimating the death toll. Transformers in that comic had the expected lifespan of a Japanese Fighter Pilot in 1945.

    This. Megatron, even in his weakened state, was too dangerous. Who knows what kinda plans he'd have come up with if Optimus let him walk away.

    Why did people really think the guy was trustworthy? Let's look at his resume:

    -Started the Great War

    -Slaughtered thousands of Autobots

    -turned Sentinel Prime, one of the most trusted Autobots, against everything he stood for

    -planned to enslave/destroy humanity

    -KILLED OPTIMUS PRIME

    Yeah, Megatron wanting a truce is completely legit. Let him run a daycare center after accepting that truce.

    Prime is brutal because he's been kickin' ass since forever, fighting for peace. I can't say I know what happens in TF comics, but usually the bad guy (i.e. Megatron) is not just killed...there's that moment of "oh well, I'll let him live...maybe he'll redeem himself" just so he can turn around and stab him in the back.
