    The line something like "Is it fear or courage the compels you, fleshling?"

    Do not tell me that is not similar to Agent Smith? I swear I remember a similar line from Revolutions, something maybe like "Mr. Anderson, why why WHY DO YOU PERSIST? Is it for love?"

    Opinions?

    you do know that its the same actor, right? but yes he has 2 lines that are kinda similar "I knew what I was supposed to do, but I didn't. I couldn't. I was compelled to stay, compelled to disobey" or my favorite "Why, Mr. Anderson? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting for something? For more that your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson." you can pretty much take out "mr. anderson" and add "prime"

    ^ Ofcourse I know it's the same actor, that's where I get the basic connection. But for the most part he had a different sound to his voice....but this line and the tone he says it with makes it seem more apparent.

    yeah I thought i had heard some of Megatron's lines before. I was quite excited to hear Hugo's voice coming out of Megatron but they altered it so much that i woudn't have know it was him if i didnt' know before going in.

    When I saw the movie version in early pics, I kept getting Hannibal Lecter.

    I dident think that he sounded that similar to agent smith. He sounded more like a crazy person, but how can you blame him? He was frozen for god knows how many years.

    Hugo sounded like a flipped out version of V as in V for Vendetta. I heard Mr. Smith and V in Megatron's voice...well versed and very pissed off.

    I don't think it's just that, he's been roaming the universe for a magical cube....

    I couldn't stop thinking that it was Elrond saying all those lines.

    Oh yeah totally!! I thought the exact same thing. When he said that exact same quote you mentioned, I was totally thinking Agent Smith

    And the whole; "humans don't deserve to live!" and "Disgusting! *FLICK*" thing >->...... I cackled at that.

    Agent Smith and Megatron would be drinking buddies...This needs to be drawn.

    I thought the exact same thing when I heard that line - not only did it sound like something Smith would say, Weaving even said in the flat monotone voice he used for said character.

    Yeah I caught that too. He was fairly unrecognisable for the most part, but yeah those lines were pure Smith. Fuck if only Meg's didn't go out like such a pussy:(

    I think it's great Weaving didn't try and repeat what he did in the past with Megatron's voice. But it is obvious Megatron and Agent Smith both share a deep hatred of humanity, and both using a computer program (Matrix/Allspark) to remake the world in their own image. Sort of.

    Megs did take quite a bit of punishment though - including some point blank shots from Jazz and a pretty heavy bombardment from some F22's.

    Perhaps he was in a weakened state after being frozen for several thousand years.

    Personally - I dont think we have seen the last of him - or the allspark.

    Yea, that's the part I stopped seeing Megatron as Megaatron, and I just pictured him for the rest of the movie with a receding hairline, and sunglasses.
    I feel another photoshop coming on!

    Probably not....But if it did, it would make Jazz's death actually worth something.
