    im pretty sure the autobots have been programed with the three laws of robotics (although you could add a law '1.a' - "kill all other robots in the way"):
    1.A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
    2.A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
    3.A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

    See both of these depend on the context. I don't hate "We will kill them all" because it was fully justifiable at the moment. Decepticons had just sucker punched both the Autobots and humanity and they were now killing for fun. All the Optimus cared about had been lost and was in the process of being lost and their final attempt at stopping it was coming.

    Long story short, it was fine for what it was.

    My personal favorite was when he said "Time to find out" and shut his face mask. that sent the audience into a fit of cheering and applause

    Prime tried to reason both, Megatron on many accounts throughout the movies, and Sentinel in this one. As Prime said, "You'll never stop with one!"

    So, he believes in the rights of life of all sentinel beings, but he must use his strength to protect the weak! Optimus Prime was right for what he did, and he was not happy about it.
