    One thing I don't see nearly enough people talking about is how Optimus Prime, who felt regret over defeating Megatron ("you left me no choice"), got transformed into Dirty Harry.

    When he towers over Demolishor and says "Any Last Words?" and then shoots him in the face? Thats not what a hero does, thats what a VILLAIN does.

    THen against The Fallen: "Give me your face!"

    WHAT THE HELL? When did Optimus Prime go from "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings" to "I'm going to rip your head off!"

    I can overlook all the silly stuff in the movie except this. they turned the hero into the villain.

    Oh my Fucking God THIS. For the love of God, every thread in this forum is people complaining.

    Demolisher killed like dozens if not hundreds of people during his tirade, I would have put his ass down too.

    I'm glad they gave Prime some balls. He got his ass handed to him last movie, this time he gave out the beatings.

    Yep, he killed multiple NEST soldiers and ran over loads of cars containing innocent humans on the freeway.

    He deserved to be executed.

    Maybe Optimus converted to a new religion and is now busy cutting off heads to send robots to robot heaven. Till all are one in robot heaven.

    I've said it before, but maybe he's the first Optimus Prime to actually listen to that part in the theme song about Autobots waging their battles "to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons"?

    That said, I do think Prime was a little too...glib, I guess...while taking out the Decepticons. I know Cullen's always channeled John Wayne and that sort of hero type for his version of Prime, but I do think it went a bit over the top here.

    Honestly, the only moment in both movies where I didn't like Optimus' actions is when (in the first movie) he let the out of control helicopter crash into the building when he was running to sam. He could have easily caught them but he didn't.

    I didn't really mind his actions in ROTF. He got a deserved up in bad ass points that I think were missing in the first film.

    People complained about Optimus being a pussy in the first one, now he kicks some ass, and you guys are complaining. Jesus Christ. It's like arguing with a woman in here. Some just love to complain.

    Like almost instincively decapitating Bonecrusher in the first film without otherwise trying to subdue him was heroic in the first film? Truth is, the Autobots are still outragously overpowered (Granted Devs doesn't really last long), and, well, the part with The Fallen was just to ensure he's DEAD.

    In the first movie, autobots' mission was finding and securing the allspark.Therefore they were protectors. Allspark gone but decepticons continued the attack, without knowing their true objective prime and autobots had no choise but to hunt and destroy the decepticons.

    Prime was one of the few enjoyable and well developed characters in the movie. Demolishor was in pieces you could say he was putting himout of his misery. The fallen is responsible for the decepticons. Optimus should have ripped him in pieces and then lubricated on them
