    In the part when optimus gets his flying gear to fight the driller his screams ""I´m coming for you".

    But, in what sense is he saying that ?

    -He is coming to get the driller owned ?

    or

    -He is saying that he is coming to help the guys in the building ?

    I don't even remember hearing him say anything. Must've been all those explosions. :lol 

    I'm guessing it could be a little bit of both, although I'm leaning more towards him referring to the Driller.

    His anger denotes that he's about to kick someone's ass.

    I think he was talking to Sam and other Humans, as in "I'm coming to save you." Since the Driller isn't sapient, it wouldn't make sense for him to be speaking to the Driller.

    I think either he was talking to shockwave and driller basically saying I want your face or he was yelling to the humans that he was coming to save them

    My neighborhood's stray dogs aren't sapient, either. But that doesn't prevent me from shouting obscenities at them whenever they shit on my driveway.

    How could you tell the Driller isn't sapient? The humanoid Decepticons didn't a show shred more sapience that the Driller did, and Laserbeak proved to be one of the most capable Cons despite being a "beast."

    I'm not sure if Optimus was actually talking to anyone, but I'd imagine he's speaking about the Driller. IIRC, he doesn't make any direct attempt to assist Sam and the gang, nor does he even seem to notice they're there.

    Optimus (spanish): I'm going to finish you!

    The way he delivers the line does not make him sound like he's interested in helping someone. And then he shoots at the building they're in.

    Funny cause in the Japanese dub he says "Hold on, I'm on my way!" which could only be talking to Sam's group.

    I think, like with most of the dialogue in the movie, it's meant to sound cool more than it is meant to mean anything in particular.

    Sounded to me like he was about to commit mayhem on the Driller.

    The way he said it seemed aggressive. Like a "I'm coming, FOR YOU!"

    So yeah. The driller. He doesn't even acknowledge that the humans are there.

    I always heard it like he was going to save Sam and his group.

    Whenever I hear someone say "I'm coming for you," I automatically think of this song:

    Nah. He's also saying it politely, something he doesn't do when talking to Decepticons. Ah Japanese and your situational verbs.

    I would say he's talking to the Driller. Didn't you hear the anger in his voice?
