    and i don't mean "good" like non-evil but he was a good character all together. I love dotm because he was thrown into the mix. He had character, he had faults, and he wasn't just a normal character who was there just to shoot things. Just cause he killed ironhide doesn't mean hes "the stupidest character in the franchise". He just wanted his planet to survive and he thought joining with megatron was the only way.
    I'm glad Michael Bay put him in the movie.

    anyone else with me on this?

    I agree. He was a great character. He was written well and was more than a "he wants to kill us for no good reason" kind of villain. You just have get passed the fact that he killed Ironhide, almost killed Optimus, wanted to enslave the humans and joined up with the Decepticons. All he wanted was the survival of his race. He did what leaders are supposed to do and that is what is best for their people. He just went about it the wrong way. Best character in the trilogy IMO.

    He had potential. As with pretty everything in the movies with potential however, it was largely squandered.

    He sure is good enuff to have 1328934749o4t5th thread started on him.

    I wondered if there's one dedicated to his sexy crotch and various plates , balls (joints) that made it.

    I agree. He was a very good character. He was sympathetic, if still a bad guy, and he had a great presence and personality.

    I loved him. I'm sick of people talking about how horrible he was. I'm certain there are people out there who say he is a horrible character not just a horrible person. He was evil but had character. People are still arguing about if he was evil. People just hate him because he killed Iron Hide.

    His potential has been used in a wrong way

    Hot Rod shows us that that doesn't happen in this fandom.

    If he didn't kill ironide, then he would kill nobody in the movie.

    I'm past the fact that he killed Ironhide. Shocked? Sure? Dwelling on it? No. I thought he was a terrific character. They put a lot of work into him and with Nimoy's help, made him something special.

    He was evil, he was corrupt and he was wrong. He was a Prime and knew he was doing wrong. No Prime would've done what he did. No good about him, can't see his plight. He was a Prime, he took the title and the job and knew what came with it. He pissed all over it.

    He's rotting in Hell, just as he deserves.

    He was the best character and the best villain of the entire trilogy.

    He was fantastic.

    Ironhide fanboys need to accept his death and move on. And hell i liked Ironhide but that meakes Sentinel hardcore.

    and i don't like him much in TFA but here they made him what i wanted. A traitorous dickhead. I always wanted TFA Sentinel to become evil.
