    Wasn't there a report somewhere that stated that Starscream's death was going to be the loudest explosion in the movie? Didn't seem that loud to me.

    I might have misread the sentence wrong, but you can look for yourself.

    I suppose they don't call him StarSCREAM for nothing...lmao

    It was kinda cheesy the way he died... a little too easy.

    Yeah, you read it wrong... Gotta look at the context:
    He's not referring to the actual "sound" or "volume" of Starscream's death at all.

    He's saying that (in this example) seeing 2 dudes struggle to take out 1 Decepticon "hits home" (i.e. resonates) with us, the viewer, on a more personal and profound, David vs. Goliath, sorda way. Much more than just continually seeing whole Air-Force squadrons fly overhead and drop miles of destruction upon the enemy... which ultimately gives you the sense they weren't much of a threat anyway.

    His death was lame, as were the deaths of all the major Cons.

    Come to think of it Starscream had the least embarassing death. Soundwave couldn't beat Bee w 5 other Decepticons to help, Shockwave gets beat by a parachute, and Megatron gets murdered in the first hit. At least Starscreams excuse was being blinded.

    Those Decepticons were helping. They were keeping Sideswipe, Dino, and Ratchet occupied while Soundwave went after Bumblebee.

    He was also shrugging off gunfire from pretty much every Autobot as well as several NEST soldiers with minimal damage. It was only after the parachute landed on his head, distracting and disorienting him, that they had any chance of bringing him down.

    And that hit happened to be a surprise battle axe right between the eyes. The shock of the hit seemed to catch Megatron off guard, which allowed Optimus to use the axe to tear his head off.

    It was cool by me... but didnt get that 'oh man he's dead' vibe, due to lennox n sam trying to cut the rope and then needing to be saved by bee, while starscream dies in the background.

    Worst part was his stupid 'im gna KICK youuu'
