I thought Ironhide's death was absolutely brutal and shocking. I knew who was going to kill him and all, but actually seeing what just something else. He has been my favorite Autobot throughout all the movies, and seeing him go out like that was just horrible. My much younger friend, who watched the movie with me, is a Bumblebee fan but she was bawling her eyes out at Ironhide's death. I'm kinda surprised I didn't cry, but maybe I was too shocked.
