Cheap and pedestrian writing.
Oh no im edgy because i dont sympathize with fictional characters
Edit: Also, if you can't sympathize with fictional characters, you're not just in the wrong fandom, you're in the wrong hobby.
I honestly don’t remember how I felt in the theater seeing him die, probably due to a mixture of me being 8 at the time and the fact that it is hard to remember lots of things from the Bay movies. But I do feel like if someone did feel sad, that shouldn’t be something to pick on them for. It just means they were really invested in the movie, and good for them. I know I sure as h*ck cried a whole lot when I saw Endgame. That made the movie so much better for me. A movie that makes you feel emotions is the best kind of movie.
I dislike the idea that everything must be TOTALLY BADASS because anything not TOTALLY BADASS is super lame. Kind of like how so many people seem to insist that Bumblebee must be the TOTALLY BADASS Camarillo who rips apart his enemies because being the cute, small, approachable one (which was originally the entire point of his character) is super lame.
I think you need to put it into context. The kids had 2 seasons with Optimus Prime and many looked at him as a father figure/role model. On top of that back in the 80's it was very rare for the hero of the franchise to be killed, especially early on in the film. It was unexpected and shocking for the time. On top of that he dies slowly from his wounds on a bed of sorts. My 7 year old daughter wanted to watch it(the '86 movie) after liking the Bumblebee movie. She cried during that scene and didn't have as much exposure to the character as those in the 80's.
PS. You're not doing the perception of Bayverse fans any favours by calling little kids that cry during movies pussies.
*reads younger audience expressions while casually eating popcorn* "First OP death huh? Don't worry he'll be back, he always comes back."
I was nine and Bayformers was basically my G1. It went how you would expect it to go.
As an older fan it didn't really have much of an impact. Having seen Prime die and come back before with G1, Beast Wars, Armada, the Marvel Comic, I thought "yea, he'll be back". Now for newer fans that never saw G1 or was familiar with the source material, I can see this being an "oh crap" moment but I don't feel it was as powerful as that very first time he died in '86 when most fans were younger across the board and we didn't even know he would be back at that time.
I remember watching the film in theaters at age 5 and don’t remember feeling too sad about Prime’s death. I suppose I knew they wouldn’t kill him off permanently, considering Megatron was able to be revived in the very same film.
Ironhide’s death... that’s a different story...
“Wow. Megatron has really let himself go. Last movie, he was 2/3rds of the way to beating Prime to death solo, with nothing but one cannon shot and his bare hands. Even with a squadron of jets bombing him over and over again.
Now he needs two of his lackies to help him even slow Optimus down enough to backstab him? Megatron bro go to physical therapy you’re not moving like you used to.”
honestly i knew he'd be back.
Even though I was a fan for a long time when I saw ROTF, I was honestly pretty shocked when he died.. I didn't see that coming in the live action movies. I remember thinking "Oh, dang, whose going to lead now?!" That is, until I remembered that the Optimus Prime toy combines with Jetfire, so then I realized he must come back to life later. But still, it was a shocking ten seconds!
It's funny, but the '86 movie was my very first exposure to transformers, so when Prime died in that one I was surprised, but I wasn't horribly devastated like a lot of kids were. I hadn't seen the G1 cartoon at that point, so it was more like "Here's this guy, wait, he's dead!" kind of thing.
Now every time Optimus dies in something, you know for sure he always finds a way to come back!
I saw it when I was a kid, it was sad.
"Son of a-not again! Oh, for the love of criminey that just cannot let some things pass, can they."
Even in 1st grade i knew hasbro would never kill Optimus and stop making movie Prime toys.
Sister in law was crying. I was thinking "h
He'll be back. He always dies and comes back in this series"
