    Not only he was advertised everywhere making people think "Whoa thats one badass dude". During the film his name was mentioned alot!!

    1.His introduction - Lennox asks Optimus who was that, Optimus throwing his sword and shield acting like he cant believe what he saw, replies : "That..is Shockwave" When i heard this in the Cinema, I thought Optimus was going to talk more about him but no.

    2.Fast forward all the way to the Chicago battle. His Driller takes out Prime's trailer. Optimus : "They've got my trailer i need that flight tech, Shockwave cant hunt all of us at once"

    3.When The Wreckers create a diversion for the other Autobots, they leave Brains and Wheelie. Wheelie looks at Shockwave who is in the background reloading his gun and says : "Aww Shockwave's coming" making us think OH SHIT ITS SHOCKWAVE NAH THEY ARE BOTH DEAD NOW

    4. When NEST soldiers are in the building, Lennox says "We've got 5 enemy targets and Shockwave". Haha, he could say 6 enemy targets BUT NO one of them is not just any Decepticon..ITS SHOCKWAVE!! meaning they need more Firepower,Air strikes, more of BRING THE RAIN, Explosions.

    And when Sam takes out Starscream's eye, Lennox says "enemy target!!"...see? they don't use Starscream's name.

    They say his name too much

    I think I tried to warn people thet there would not be a lot shown in the movie in regards to Soundwave or Shockwave.

    However, people see a character that got playtime in the old cartoons and somehow equate this and apply it to the movies. They build up some big, grandios scenareo of SW being some major new antagonist that gets 49% of the screentime.

    Only a very select few characters ever get any decent screentime. Not until the VFX vender gets more computers, the CG models get simplified and a film crew re-adjusts their philosophy to consider the robots as much of an actor as a human will we wver get anything closeto a TV show.

    How did he gets overhyped?

    I know they lied and said he was the big bad but you know the big bad was going to dissapointing.

    I'm glad thet lied. Sentinel Prime was a great bad guy for a Bay Film.

    Sadly, Shockwave was just one big red herring. He was just put in there, in publicity materials, articles and trailers, to stop you from guessing that Sentinel Prime was the main villain.
