    Yes, the Decepticons have been portrayed really badly in the films. Dozens of Decepticons have perished, including the Constructicons! The only Autobot to perish is Jazz. Megatron is not the Megatron I grew up with in the movie and only Starscream has so far been left with any credibility! I know that DOTM will be better balanced, but lets face it, I'll bet a years earnings that not a single Decepticon is left standing at the end. Very poor if you ask me.

    See, I never get this kind of thing. The reason more Decepticons die than Autobots is because they're the bad guys and because they're also fighting the friggin US military. Also, alot of Autobots have died. Jazz, two of the Arcee twins, and Jetfire have died over the course of two movies. Most of the Decepticons that have died have been drones anyway, so they don't count. And Megatron probably might survive DOTM, don't ask me why, its just a feeling I have.

    I get your point. But it makes the whole thing very predictable. Good versus evil and evil always triumphs (Except for in Star Wars) blah blah blah. Can we please have the real Megatron that we saw in the first movie? In the second movie it took three Decepticons to bring Optimus down! and one of them was Megatron. Look I can not lie, I like the films but am not their biggest fan.

    Dying is typical for bad guys in Hollywood, but what really ticks me off is how they don't even try to fight back, at least most of them.

    I wanted Mixmaster to put up a good fight against Jetfire, or Sideways against Sideswipe, Rampage against BB, (he didn't even use his guns!) and any others I missed..

    I just know that Shockwave will be taken out by a "puny Human" And Optimus will take on all the Decepticons on his own and win the day. Makes you wonder why he couldnt have done that in the first place on Cybertron. Would have saved a lot of time and trouble.

    Prime will probably kill Shockwave and the humans will kill a lot of the drones, like they did in ROTF.

    The NY Times article states that one of the powergliding humans lands on his arm. For a reason I think.

    So, doesn't mean they kill him, it just means they try to.

    We know Ratchet isn't that good of a medic, he couldn't even fix Bumblebee's voice.

    Sorry, I'm a pessimist. Ive seen it before. He will die a stupid death, just like all the others. I need to see a Decepticon that fills you with fear. Not one like Blackout, who can be killed by a man on a bike!

    Blackout died because he was shot in the friggin Spark Chamber, of course he's going to die from that. Whatever, I'm done trying to reason with you buddy because whatever I say won't convince you that not all Decepticons die stupid deaths. See ya.

    Actually Blackout was killed by an air strike as he was being shot/distracted by a bike.
