    He is a lot weaker than i thought and to easy to take out And his cannon is not as power ful as i thought in the comic, in the comic that's a powerful weapon which can kill an Autobot from far distinct but in the movie it just a boring gun
    Look what his cannon did to Wheeljack and Mirage in Rising storm

    Since he was just a decoy for Sentinel, it is no wonder he was such a let down. Shockwave should not have been in DOTM at all. Then he could be the main villian for TF4.

    I still appreciate what little screentime he got but I agree, he was still a disappointment. I just can't shake the fact that he was pretty-much confirmed as the main villain during production, only to be given this "surprise" with Sentinel. Hence one of the main reasons I'm starting to dislike the movie franchise. We need a new director and crew IMO.

    Richard McGonagle would've Voiced Shockwave if he had more screentime. But at least we had frank to take care of.

    And yet wheeljack and mirage were still alive in the film (so the autobots are like lego so it Wouldn't matter if shockwave shot them down)

    Fixed. :) 

    I would've liked to hear more of Welker's take on Shockwave's voice. Sounded similar to his raspy G1 Megatron.

    Wheeljack and Mirage did survived the comic book. WHeeljack even made a force field after getting shot and at the end of the comic rathcet said that Mirage and wheeljack will live and will repair them but they wont look the same (explaining their different looks in the movies)

    Shockwave should have had his own movie as the Big Bad. He would have been great "major villain" material, so he ended up a waste in DOTM.

    Shockwave wasn't weak, trust me. Would you have liked him to kill off 2 wreckers, Ratchet & Optimus?

    Shockwave was a disappointment. But not as much as Sentinel was. Too much Spock in his dialogue. I won't be seeing the 4th film. Bay got too much of my money for the 2nd and 3rd as it was. In fact, seeing as how TF Prime is being written by Movie scribes, I think i'll bow out of the franchise now. It hit its high mark with Animated.

    I remember the photos, the teases, the anticipation. Then the disappointment, I felt like the lone black guy in an action film who knows he's gonna be the first to go, and the last in the credits.

    Of course, when Sentinel was first revealed he was gold and I swore up and down he was Alpha Trion and we were getting the ultimate Shockwave film. So I was seriously bummed when it all fell apart. DOTM took my virginity without consent and then left me with the filthy remains.

    Don't even get me started.
