    I know death was pretty cheap in DoTM, but I'm wondering about this. So all you have to do is throw Hatchet into a car and his head falls off? What, is his neck made of Saltine crackers?

    How is that possiple? Plenty of characters have been thrown into things, but thier heads don't break off.

    Don't you know? Bay-verse Decepticons are made of tinfoil.

    Key thing to note is that the fight occurred on a freeway. That car was not stationary, it was moving at a pretty decent speed. Combined with Hatchets neck hitting roughly on the bumper area, I'm not surprised his head was torn off.

    Hatchet was the mascot of the team, hardly that much of a threat. Hatchet is just the "crowd disperser" [I.e that guy that goes berserker on everything to clear the place while Crowbar and Crankcase do the REAL job], you can even see that in the movie: He just knock cars out of the way to open way for Crowbar and Crankcase while THEY do the real job.

    So he was the weakest member of the team in my opinion.

    Besides, Dino's hooks are not to be fucked with.

    Consider that in the official novelization the two Dreads also met their fate when Ironhide literally decimated them into thousands of pieces of shrapnel - dead pieces of shrapnel - by merely stepping in their path. At least in the film they collided, SURVIVED, and then proceeded to fight and die. Granted, in the book it came off as humourous and really showcased how awesome Ironhide was (making Sentinel's slaughter of Ironhide only more brutal).

    As for Hatchet, yeah. 'Bee and Sideswipe were pounding rounds into him, Dino digs his hooks into him and throws him into a speeding car. Even if I were a giant robot, that'd probably still hurt and I'd probably be down for the count. ;)

    They should have built all the Decepticons with the same armor Scorponok was made out of.

    Why the hell did the Deception Dread

    -That got blasted by who knows how many missiles from Sideswipe and Bumblebee.

    -Two blade hook devices speared into his head/neck area

    -Then thrown through the air into another object that was roughly the same mass at a high speed..

    DIE?!

    I can't seem to figure out why the Dread wasn't living after that..

    Ahh that's right, I remember now. When you're made out of "tinfoil" you can't really endure shit like that. :rolleyes2 :rolleyes2 :rolleyes2

    What other people have said. The fight was taking place on a highway, where vehicles usually move at 60+mph. I've only seen the movie once so can't remember too much but it looked like Hatchet was thrown aside from Mirage, causing him to get beheaded from a car running right into him at that exact moment.

    Because some people feel it their duty to attack any sort post that isn't praise of the films. Pointing out flaws or questionable logic by the production team can not be tolerated.

    What people seem to be forgetting here, is that Hatchet is not an ordinary earth machine. If this was the first movie, he would have decimated that car and stayed alive.

    And some people feel that it is their duty to bash the film any chance they get with snide, obligatory, childish quips every single post.

    So wait, he can survive missiles impacting his body at hundreds if not thousand of miles per hour, but a car going 60+ can decapitate him? Makes no sense, not only that, it wasn't a head on impact. Both car and decepticon were traveling in roughly the same direction thereby reducing the speed of collision even more.

    Now if you say that Mirage's hooks ripped the head off, thats more believable.
