The traitorous Autobot ex-leader we all know and adore....
DOTM Sentinel Prime: He killed Ironhide,makes a deal with Hobo Megatron,and try rebuilt Cybertron with Humans but got owned by One-Armed Optimus with Megatron's shotgun.
Also the best character we've gotten in the TF movies by far, also the most characterized. Killing Ironhide was an A+ for him because he took out a token Autobot that managed to survive the first two movies. His plan was also the best G1-referenced plan we got so far, mainly because almost the same plan was orchestrated in G1. Sentinel Prime FTW dude....
Plus he's voiced by Elder Spock lol
Well...The Fallen was the traitor of the original primes..Why doesn't he get any love..?
The Fallen's plan sucks, also he looks so alien...
But he is an alien.
I suppose DOTM Sentinel had good intentions, but compromised too much in killing his own Autobot "brothers.". That's why I like Animated Sentinel so much more. He's a big time jerk among his other failings. However, he didn't cut a deal with the Decepticons. About as low as he went in that regard was bargaining with the unaffiliated Lockdown over Decepticon prisoners.
Fallen was a weak lil' bitch in the end. He was suppose to be this super-powerful apocalyptic beast and instead, he is taken down in less than two minutes.
Sentinel Prime was great. Easily the best character the movies have given us. Well developed, a threatening villain, killed a lead Autobot and was a villain the writers intended to be more than just "gerr I'm evil".
He was cool, and the only one aside from Megatron to ever overpower Optimus at any point.
Don't forget that quick 10 seconds in ROTF when The Fallen pinned Optimus down in the sand and stole the Matrix from him.
Sentinel Prime was the shining star of DotM. He was well written and fun to watch.
Sentinel was the best part of the movies and an awesome villain. He looked and sounded sophisticated, he was brutal, cunning yet so misguided.
What SPLIT said, pretty much. Sentinel was a tragic character who honestly believed that what he was doing was for a greater good, and to be fair, he had a good intention. But just like Megatron, he was corrupted, desiring control, to be a God! He wanted to use the humans and Earth to achieve that Godhood, to have Cybertron for himself, but ultimately, betrayed his own morals and bretheren in this quest.
Sentinel is the only villain who wasn't defeated in a anti-climatic finale, he wasn't a wuss and he had almost the entire film of screen time.
It's a shame the rest of the movie aside from Sentinel (and Laserbeak) blows. I truly believe it to be Leonard Nimoy's finest voice role and I hope we get more Traitorous Sentinel Prime's in the future.
As long he has no Big Chin.
Oh yeah..let me rephrase that.
He was the only one to ever overpower Optimus in a proper fight without a surprise attack other than Megatron at any point in the movies.
To be fair, Optimus had only just gotten back to life and needed recovery time. The Fallen just kicked him while he was down, so to speak.
I find myself feeling much the same. I thoroughly enjoy Sentinel Prime as a character, and I find most things about him well done. I really wished I hadn't been spoiled going into the movie.
