    The robots in general should talk more in DOTM.

    And by "talk", I mean something other than one liners and dumb jokes.

    I read some interviews before the movie came out and they said that Shockwave wasnt gonna speak because his facial expressions would play a huge role showing his emotions. I thought that was so cool but they showed his facial expression like once.

    ^To the above, I think they talked about his physical language, not his expressions.

    And to be fair, he was reasonably expressive with his physical language [like the fact that he walks extremely slowly while cocking his gun, or the way his eyes analyzes things].

    But yes, he should have talked more.

    I def would have liked to hear more from him than what he had...
    "Optimus"
    and
    "Hrblahbgrablrgattlembishf" was a little lame and illogical for my taste lol.

    If you want to see Shockwave's lines, read the book version.

    We need more scenes between the robots like at Sam's house in TF1.
    And Optimus' silent treatment to Mearing. That was really funny.

    If anything, I would've liked another line or two. I don't mind that he's a minor character, but he was named, and an effort was made to have the audience remember him - NAMING him, more then once - but another two lines wouldn't hurt from him.

    Personally,instead of that dumb growling thing he does after cocking his gun,I wish he would have said "You cannot hide from me forever,Optimus!" I would have also liked a longer fight between Op and Shockwave. SW could have said "This..is....illogical" *blam!* Op shoots him in the head

    I actually liked the fact that he didn't talk much, because it added to that silent but deadly killing machine angle I think they were going for. Megatron, Starscream, and Soundwave spoke plenty and the more I rewatch these films the more I see the point of Orci's early claim that villains seem more menacing when they don't say as much. Not only was he recognized as a threat by Optimus, Autobots, and soldiers on multiple occasions, but he really felt like a Con to be feared unlike the other protoforms. The Decepticons in TF1 all felt like genuine threats (perhaps because there were fewer) and Shockwave seems like the first Con in either sequel to match that level in my opinion.

    No he didn't.

    Optimus landed the killing blow, but he had already been torn apart by the Autobots and the humans.

    Also I'm partial to the "Grrrrrr" line myself. Cliché, yes, but classic.
