Lets come up with some better ways Shockwave couldv'e been utilized. The way i have viewed Shockwave is like a Nuclear Weapon. Most Bots use some variation of Blades and Guns, but Shockwave is in a whole other class, Like a nuke, laser, or railgun. Aside from what we fans know of Shockwave, what in the movie even makes him badass? We dont even get any dialogue that Shockwave is a threat or a big baddie. The first scene with him seems edited to hell. He emerges from the driller, says Optimus, stares him down, and flees. WTF? Prime doesn't even say anything like "If Shockwave is here, we've got big problems!" or "Shockwave didnt even engage me, Something else is going on here." All of the bots make mention, even Brains, UH OH theres Shockwave. Why do they all know him, what has he done in the past to make him recognizable? He doesnt even kill anything the entire movie. Even when he fires at optimus, his reactors dont even powerup. He shoots a normal shell cased projectile, it shouldve been a laser or a plasma ball. Something that shows he can Unleash Hell with one shot based on how much he powers up. Show a scene through his EYE that shows come super advanced terminator/predator-like targeting system. This would make the parachute seem more necessary. During his final scene, optimus punches through him and you see his hose become disconnected, yet in the next scene, optimus throws him down and pulls his throat out...the hose is still connected. He doesnt even grunt or speak when he's up close and personal with Prime. Since he was just a ruse, they shouldve hooked viewers into thinking he was the villain instead of weakly implying it. Make it out like he is there for his own reasons, megatron aside. Or he is there to assassinate SP. SOMETHING!
