    Have watch all 3 movies, Megs can clearly kick ass, so why didn't he?
    Movie 1: he was beating the hell out of prime, plus he was his most menacing here.
    ROTF: again beating Prime' s ass, with a little help yes, but that who he was, a cheater.
    DOTM: he beat the hell out of Sentinel Prime, who punked up Prime,

    So why didn't he just shut the hell up and killed Prime when he had all those chances?

    (I know, that how movie world works)

    He did kill Prime in ROTF, so..

    In DOTM, he was offering a [probably fake] truce to Optimus, and you can see in the shot that he was going to reload his gun [I.e he wasn't paying attention to Optimus], when he realized that Optimus was going to kill him, there was an axe on his freaking head.

    As I said: He wasn't paying attention to him.

    It was clear to me that when Megatron was just sitting there in the alley he was already psychologically beaten. I don't think the truce was a ploy though.

    The way I see it in DOTM he was just a lazy SOB. Megatron knew Sentinel Prime would kill Optimus and his plan was going along well, he's just so arrogant that when Carly called him Sentinel's bitch, he got angry. He thought he deserved to kill Prime himself, and when Sentinel was down he got a little too cocky and decided to offer a false truce to gain some time and reload.
    But his smugness gave away his lie. He didn't expect Optimus to see through it, much less to actually attempt to kill him. Optimus was, as Ironhide put it, pissed.

    Got nothing for ROTF though.

    In DotM I looked as Megatron as mentally defeated. While he set the stage for the Decepticon invasion he really was only a pawn.

    Kinda the same with RotF he really was second to some he set the stage for. I just view Megatron as gradually loosing his drive.

    Im probably looking into it too deep but eh besides TF1 he hasn't really been in full control.
