    To those who have both seen the movie and read the novel, which do you think has a better ending?

    In the movie, Megatron attacks Sentinel Prime when he and Optimus were fighting. Optimus eventually kills both Megatron and Sentinel Prime.

    In the novel, Megatron helps Optimus defeat Sentinel Prime. Then Megatron says he is tired of fighting, and promises Optimus that he and the Decepticons will no longer oppose the Autobots/humans, but will focus on getting to Cybertron and rebuilding it so that once again both Autobots and Decepticons can live there in peace.

    Sorry but I have a Hard time Believing that Megatron in All his Pride
    and Hunger for Power Would simply say
    :"You know what you beat me I give up
    and i'll also send a Ship for you and Your's even though
    i have been trying to Kill You the whole war"
    to me the Movie portrays There Characters better:tongue:

    Yes to whats already been said.

    Someone like Megatron, a power hungry lunatic hell bent on control over EVERYTHING isn't about to suddenly throw away all he's worked for just because he's been thoroughly beaten, surrender and offer a truce to the mech he's been out to kill and HAS killed. It's all completely wrong for his character as he's been established.

    So...Micheal Bay portrayed a character more accurately than what the fans wanted?

    I don't know. The book ending would not of worked for the movie because there was no sign that Megatron wanted to end the war. They are both good for their respected mediums.

    While I have not read the novel so I didn't vote but Megatron was hypnotized or something by the Fallen so The Fallens death plus being the cause of the destruction of Cybertron twice and being beaten so many times I would believe Megatron would be sick of the war.

    Umm lets see, other than the plan to bring back Cybertron. The fact he didnt attack and kill Optimus on sight? the fact he`s tired and just wants Cybertron. The fact he and Optimus were in charge on Cybertron before the war. The fact (Revealed recently) Optimus used to be a Decepticon who Megatron (An autobot) turned him good.

    Yeah, that's not much. Not to mention the fact that Megatron in the movie was MOCKING Optimus with the truce and was not being sincere. Also, that last part, that's not from the movieverse, it's from TFP and it hasn't been confirmed yet.

    While the novel has more depth and sense of closure, Megatron does not want peace with the autobots. So I go with the movie ending despite Megatron not putting up a fight.

    Umm, when I saw the movie, Megatron was sitting in alley, bothering no one, didn't destroy one single thing.. other than a statue and Sentinel, he was very relieved when he saw cybertron and didn't even come at Optimus first or try to kill him. Heck, Megatron was just chilling the whole movie , the main decepticons running the show was Sentinel , Starscream, Soundwave and Laserbeak .

    So Megatron most def did show signs of not wanting to fight anymore..

    But anyways, I like the novel ending better .

    Movie. No way Megatron will have an awakening like that. He is too power hungry for that.

    I liked both...but the words "Megatron" and "Truce" cannot co-exist.

    I prefer the Movie version: after all of the atrocities Megatron has committed over the course of the trilogy (and in the backstory), he didn't deserve to live.
