    who thought it was a bright idea to have Prime say this? I mean in the context of the story it might look ok, after he sees the devastation the Decepticons brought. but still...

    He was probably mad about his BEST FRIEND'S death and the betrayal of his HERO.

    I can understand one of the other Autobots saying this, but not Optimus. He's supposed to be civil, the most level and fair of the Autobots, and that seemed a wee bit out of character for him to say. I can understand him saying something along those lines, but less harsh, if that makes sense at all.. because as you said, he's seeing what the Decepticons have done to human-kind, so he should be angry as hell, but he shouldn't have expressed it to that degree.

    Although it was pretty bad-ass that he said it, it definitely made me excited for what was coming next.

    I thought it was great!

    When he said that I was thinking "Awww yeah, NOW some shit is gonna go down!".

    A little hardcore for 'ol Optimus Prime, I'll admit, but I liked it!

    This Prime rips faces off and shoots defenseless enemies, he isn't like other Optimus Prime characters and shouldn't be compared to them. He may look and sound familiar, but he's a whole different character.

    I bet thats why he said it, not only his hero, but his mentor and father like person remember that Sentinel found Optimus and raised him as a young protoform (i guess thats what a baby cybertronian is called )

    I think this Optimus is alot more realistic. No matter what your status is or how high ranking you are, things that happen in life can make you snap. Sentinel was practically a father-figure to Optimus, I can't even imagine what Optimus felt at that moment.

    I think Prime's intent was that the Decepticons have taken things way too far and there's no freaking way the Decepticons are going to stop their tyranny until the Decepticons either win or die.

    Think of it this way - he only killed a few Cons in the previous films out of them, individually, being too dangerous to be left alive. Now he sees that as long as one is able to fly the Decepticon flag (so to speak), the war and bloodshed will continue.

    I'm fairly sure if your best friend was murdered and the person you look up to most betrayed you, you'd be pretty pissed too. And in Optimus Prime's case, he goes on a murderous rampage for vengeance. And also to end the war once and for all.

    I kinda felt he was justified, after all the years of prime trying to give the 'cons a chance, he finally had enough, there are times when talk and giving chances are done.

    Fucking loved that line, Optimus had finally had enough of the Decepticons.

    His goddamn IDOL reveals he is working for Megatron, Killed his second in command, the government shunned them out, and TRUSTED decepticons, and killed thousands of people in chicago.

    Optimus couldn't just go into chicago and disarm the decepticons, He was going to Kill them all. And he DID.

    I hate to sound so hateful about the people who think it's out of character, but it makes sense, he hit his breaking point. He was pissed off the whole movie.

    Even if he didn't vocally say it, it's obvious that's what he's going to do. What would you rather him say? He's going to go after the Decepticons regardless and kill them. He was just being completely blunt about his intentions.

    If I had

    -The humans lie to me for years.

    -My best friend murdered in cold blood.

    -My mentor and older brother turn on me and join forces with our mutual sworn enemy. (Not to mention be blamed for bringing Sentinel and what he's doing by the humans)

    -A entire city and the people within it being destroyed and feeling like it's your fault. Plus the entire WORLD is on the brink of being destroyed.

    I'd be pissed too. Optimus has been through a lot. I don't blame his ass I would have said it too.
