    I saw the scene when Optimus lands and kills some cons. He lands and brawl is already on the ground. Shoots Long Haul (don't think he is already dead), sticks Sideways on his sword and then slashes a rather big con (a green one)

    Isn't that too east? That last one was the same height and Brawl isn't a pussy either (TF1)

    In TF1, Brawl was under attack form a few humans, and Bumblebee. In ROTF, Sideways was sliced in half by Sideswipe, and Long Haul was presumably destroyed in the air strike.

    Prime's never physically battled any of these three, and given that Sideswipe and Bee/humans could take them down, does not make them hard work for Prime. Brawl's head's ripped off and Sideways is slashed apart once more. Having massive swords, guns and a jetpack quite simply outclass these soldiers.

    The Decepticons werent expecting that. Look at how fast optimus quickly lands and attacks them. They didnt have much time to defend themselves and seeing all that explosions it be quite hard to see whats ahead

    Plus people say cannon fodder

    Is Brawl the green one? that is slashed in half?

    Remember that Brawl was two times defeated. The quote from the first movie: that tank thing is back or something :p 

    Brawl head ripped off? Didn't see that

    My first impression when I saw that part in the trailer was "This must be the final battle where Prime just swoops in and pushes the win button for the Autobots."

    Indeed.

    Brawl took shots & melee attacks from Ironhide, Jazz, Ratchet, BB and humans.

    The final shots to which Brawl succumbs are from Ratchet, after a prolonged barrage of aliied attacks. Really, this Brawl dude wasn't a pussy by any means.

    Also, I'm not sure how Brawl managed to be in ROTF, since he was already dead.
    I imagine that guy (whoever he was - Tankor, perhaps?) was just a reuse of the model, in the same way that Grindor wasn't Blackout.

    The element of surprise.

    Or rather the element of Jetpack/swords/surprise/badassery/"hey was that Optimu-*hurk*"

    Exactly, Prime is a complete badass. There are few who can stand up to him in any incarnation of Transformers.

    Remember, there aren't many autobots left and the ones that are are more or less elite, the survivors, the best. Prime is first among them.

    But really ONLY Prime can do this sort of thing. Any of the others we've seen so far would get murdered a few seconds after this scene started although it would be hilarious to see.
    Even the mighty Jetfire who is twice the size of Prime only managed to see off a couple (one of whom, the smallest, mortally wounded him).
    Only the very best Decepticons should be a match for Prime. He's a bit special.

    Fair enough, but in these movies, the Decepticons have easily been killed by tanks, airstrikes etc from the humans. Megatron was even beaten back by a puny machine-gun in the 2nd movie.

    exactly and those are name brand decepticons that he blows through in the original, In the trailer he is just going through Genera-cons and this is probably a good bit into the movie so prime is all geared up to kick some aft

    Prime is just badass but he got rid of the jet pack so hes going to fight shockwave without combine elements.

    I want to see ironhide beat the shit out of the dreads.

    More like an entire company of tanks firing specially adapted 120mm SABOT rounds plus 25mm autocannons from Bradleys, then several autobots firing their weapons and so on. He's very, very powerful but not indestructible.

    Oh no, that was just the entree. He hasn't combined with his trailer at this point. Whether he does that to fight Shockwave, I dont know. But he's only just getting started in that csene.

    It's the movies so unless your name is Megatron the Decepticons are only a threat to nameless extras who aren't important to the story. Pop up, kill a few extras who were only there to get killed, then become totally ineffective until it's time for an Autobot to kill you so that Autobot can be one of those gritty characters. Or maybe killed by a human seeking revenge for his buddies.

    After the intro scene most Decepticons could be beaten by a stick that had a nail in it. With Prime being some odd combination of Superman and Rambo now it's not like the Decepticons are going to do anything but have a load of lame deaths to make some other character artificially cool to the teens out for robot blood.
