    I mean don't get me wrong, onscreen it looks like he's dead but lets take a look back at the other decepticons deaths:

    Megatron - Head and spine ripped out (clearly dead)

    Starscream - Bomb detonated in eye and blew up inside of head (pretty much dead)

    Soundwave - Took an powerful blast through his torso and blew his head off (clearly dead)

    Shockwave - Took multiple blasts from soldiers and autobots. Chunk of torso punched out by Optimus and eye ripped out. (May not be as bad as the other deaths, but could possibly be hanging on for life)

    Also when it comes to the amount of damage Shockwave took, remember that back in ROTF Megatron took on a lot of damage when he fought Jet Optimus by losing his arm , getting blasted in the head point blank with his own gun, and taking a clean blast to the chest.

    Yes. Even if he wasn't dead when he hit the ground, who is going to save him? Optimus has clearly shown that he is willing to finish off downed, defenseless enemies. Sentinel was begging for his life and yet Optimus still killed him. I wouldn't be surprised if OP or anyone returned to finish the job IF Shockwave was still alive then.

    Dead. The military probably finished him off.

    I'd like to say he lived, but the evidence would suggest that he is dead.

    Unfortunately he is probably dead. The lack of medical help would have brought the end. :(

    He had his torso punched off and his eye ripped out through his mouth, but without a definitive killing blow, I could see him coming back in the inevitable sequel comic.

    But what if he was finished off by the military? Did you see any signs of any 'Cons coming to his aid, or a way to escape? Nope.

    I think he's dead, but I won't rule out him getting revived somehow in the next movie

    That's where understanding military ops come in. After this, you can very much expect a military operation to come in and provide security and clean up. I would expect that not every 'Con would have been killed, so a miltary/Autobot operation within Chicago would be conducted to root out remaining resistance. If Shockwave isn't already dead, then I figure the military will swoop in and finish off the rest of the 'Cons.

    What I'm trying to say is that even if we didn't see it, we KNOW the military would come in to handle an emergency like this. National Guard would've been immediately mobilized as soon as Chicago was under attack. They inserted a SEAL team, afterall, which indicates that all strategic and tactical options were considered and put into action. If a Navy SEAL team was inserted, you could bet that a bigger, badder force would've soon rolled in.

    so as far as I remember, his eye popped out, he got punched in the side of the stomach. I can't remember what else happened to him

    Sentinel got rid of Ironhide, Optimus' best soldier, I would have done the same.

    Back on topic, I would only like the idea of Shockwave surviving because I want to see him in action in another film. But unfortunately Shockwave suffered a gruesome death in DOTM.

    his brain with eye and spine attached were ripped out....even for a 'former thats pretty much means dead.

    So
    Shockwave = dead
    Megatron = dead (and a whole lot deader than the first film this time)
    Soundwave = dead (oh he was most definatly killed by that shot up through the chest obliterating his head)
    Starscream = dead
    Pretty much every other decepticon in sight = dead

    I'd like to see how they intend to carry on this franchise as is with no reboot...they're going to have to be doing a hell of a lot of Retconning. It might be nice to think they could come up with some new characters that aren't comedy sidekicks and not just slapping G1 names on them....now if they brought in Galvatron and cyclonus as badguys who aren't rebulds of Megs etc and that actually have some intelligence past blowing shit up that might start to be interesting
