Rewrite Age of Extiniction Seeing how many people hated AOE, both its plot and action, and since I love threads like this... change AOE's plot to your sanctification. Try to go in-depth as possible. Prepare to have your minds blown. MY INTRODUCTION SEQUENCE The film opens more than a year after the Battle of Chicago, high on the mountains overlooking Mexico City. The evening light bathes a stalwart Optimus, who gazes down upon the city and its slowly fading day-life. Beside him, Ratchet too observes the city. Ratchet: Forgive me, Optimus... but what we're doing goes completely against what we stood for in the war. It's an affront to those who died fighting against their tyranny. Optimus: On the contrary, old friend. What we do today will honor those we lost. Annihilation has never been our way, and I intend to uphold that. I am not Megatron. Ratchet: Then let us be done with it. Our window of opportunity is rapidly approaching. Optimus: Agreed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJObWAQJEic Optimus and Ratchet make it down the mountain and enter the city, taking separate routes in their vehicle modes to avoid attention. They roll through the city streets, sweeping the city layout. Night falls. Ratchet: Optimus, I'm detecting Energon. He's close. Optimus: I'm on my way. The two rendezvous in a location away from the city heart, parking outside a military installation. Ratchet tasers the few guards present, allowing Optimus to transform and enter the base. Inside, he approaches a large casket and rips it open, revealing an inactive Transformer inside. Optimus wrenches him out and revives him with the Matrix. A Decepticon symbol can be seen on the bot's chest. Optimus: Easy. What is your name? Deadlock: My name is Deadlock... Optimus: Well met. I am Optimus Prime. Deadlock weakly tries to stab Optimus, but the blade is easily stopped by Optimus. Optimus: Now is not the time. The war is over. Deadlock: The war will never be over until only one side remains. Optimus: You do not understand, Deadlock. The rules have changed. Ratchet: Optimus, we must go. I'm picking up a patrol, not too far away. Optimus: Can you transform, Deadlock? Deadlock: What does it matter to you, Prime? Optimus: That is a question I do not have an answer for, Deadlock. A grenade suddenly hits Ratchet. A strike team emerges from hiding and begins to open fire. Ratchet: Take the Decepticon and go, Prime! I'll draw their fire, go! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI_0JEDButo Optimus carries Deadlock down the mountainside, jumping and sliding down; the two transform and stay close together with Ratchet not far behind. Several helicopters emerge from the mountains, and a chase scene ensues through the streets of Mexico City. The bots draw fire from each other and race down the streets, sometimes transforming and hopping from roof to roof. At the city border, Ratchet finds a manned barricade set in place to stop the bots. With no way around and the others not far behind, Ratchet charges the barricade. He takes heavy fire but pries a path open. Optimus and Deadlock charge past, but not before Ratchet's leg is shot out by an unknown sniper. Optimus turns around and tries to save Ratchet, but takes a hail of rounds from the nearby helicopters. Ratchet insists Optimus to run, which he reluctantly does. After Optimus disappears into the horizon, Ratchet's death plays out the same way it did in the movie –Cemetery Wind closing in around him and Lockdown walking toward him the scene... the rest of it, well, is history... As the song hits the chorus and the "no one can save me now" section, the scene shifts to a fleeing Optimus and Ratchet's scream is heard. The drums' crescendo as Optimus rolls over some sand and dust, revealing something underneath... Fade to black.
