    I always heard abdained. Then I remembered thats not a real word.

    Megatron was acting as if he were equal to Sentinel. Sentinel didn't like this since he still hated Megatron so he smashed his head against a wall to put him in his place.

    He knows how ambitious Megatron is. Sentinel was just trying to keep Megatron in check so he wouldn't get any ideas. Then Carly comes along and slaps some sense/fight/paranoia into Megatron.

    That, and you could say it goes back to how Megatron corrupted Sentinel - Megatron showing Sentinel everything he envisioned for Cybertron and its people. Hell, lots of Sentinel's dialogue could be something Megatron would say (like the "we were gods" line). Sentinel started getting that craving for power that Megatron had, and in a way, the puppet was starting to take control of the act.

    I'm in the same boat as you. Perhaps years of fighting Megatron have taught him Megatron can't be trusted.

    I have to admit, it does sound a bit strange reading that, but Megatron is sneaky so Sentinel just wanted to set the record straight.

    Because Sentinel was so afraid of the Autobots losing the war that he made a deal with megatron and then when he had his hand in megatrons head and could of killed him he didn't for some reason but he definitely isn't afraid of megatron and is he isn't afraid of megatron then why doesn't he just kill him and end the war and oh yeah the whole movie makes no sense this is why i don't post in the movie thread. Sorry, I'll go again.

    I agree with the OP, many contradictions abound, but the movie was fun with lots of explosions.

    He doesn't kill Megatron because all of the Decepticons would turn on him.

    The movies are full of plot holes and problems, but Sentinel Prime is fairly easy to explain.

    He is so obsessed with resurrecting cybertron that he's willing to ally with Megatron, because SP knows Optimus will never agree to do what "needs to be done". He can't kill Megatron because he needs the decepticons for the job and they support Megatron. Megatron needs him because he has the technology needed and is the only one who knows where it is and how to use it. That doesn't mean that he likes Megatron or the decepticon cause.

    Now how this fits with the previous movies and The Fallen are another thing entirely. Haven't bothered to think about it much, as is probably best. :p

    I do think the major plan links TF1 with DOTM more than ROTF. The only thing that links the ROTF with the other 2 films is, a damaged megatron and the matrix

    Both are cunning and both would forsee a backstabbing moment in the future. Sentinel, I believe. wanted to restore Cybertron and the Transformers to their former greatness. Where Megatron, wanted to restore Cybertron so he can then try to conquer the universe.

    Well, there are few more minor things linking them:

    -Sam saying "Mister, I've saved your life twice."
    -Simmons' photos of him at the pyramid.
    -Wang "interrogating" Sam about "You showed up in the backgrounds of X photos on two different continents with aliens, that was you in Egypt", or whatever.
    -Simmons saying "Washington, Egypt, heartbreak, I survive. I will survive."

    Like I said, DotM isn't hinged on the above-mentioned things, but I'm glad to see that they didn't completely disown RotF, or choose to act like it never happened. Just minor hints and comments.

    That is true, they do give little bits of ROTF like what you just said, which watching ROTF again last week I do find it entertaining, even more so than TF1, even though I do find TF1 a better film overall. On ROTF my major problem with the film was the lack of optimus, but many seem to bitch about the acting more than than the plot.

    Would be a perfect place to relive a good old G1 line from the same person of all things! "Will anyone else attempt to fill his shoes?"
