    Shouldn't it have been, "You left SAM no choice brother..."???
    I mean it did kinda seem like Prime to credit for killing Megatron in TF1 when in fact it was Sam (dumb, but true).

    Wow, this is nitpicking at its most extreme.

    I'm pretty sure Prime was referring to the entirety of their war, including things well before they arrived on Earth. As in, Megatron was the bad guy and would never stop until he was killed.

    I'm not nitpicking. I don't think it ruined the movie, I just think the line would have been more fitting if Prime had actually killed Megatron.

    Now nitpicking is when someone is furious because a bot isn't the exact color or shade of color as their G1 counterpart...

    I see your point here, but honestly, I can't see Prime saying that without sounding a little silly.

    True.... but Sam is the true villain killer (Megatron , Starscream , Laserbeak and Dylan)

    Prime shoulda just been quiet then, since Megatron wasn't really dead...

    It's still bothers me with Optimus calling Megatron brother.

    He was dead. His spark was extinguished. That was the whole part of ressurecting him in ROTF.

    Wouldn't "You left US no choice brother" work?

    It's obvious that they were just foreshadowing DOTM, by not giving credit to Sam for saving the world.

    Considering the dialog between the two I always thought the line was fitting.

    You fight for the week.
    You would choose them over your own kind?
    (Paraphrased)

    I just figured 'You left me no choice, brother' was an aggregate answer to their conversation during combat.

    I don't believe it.
    It's not like they stole an Allspark fragment and inserted it in his chest or anything like that.

    HA HA HA!!! Yeah, I don't think the line belongs in the movie at all... I just think it comes off as odd considering Prime was getting the crap kicked out of him and didn't actually subdue Megatron...

    I guess it IS sort of applicable, since Optimus was the one who gave Sam the idea that shoving the Cube into a TF's chest could kill them.

    Which would have been the case, if not for Spielberg changing it.

    The game more or less follows the original ending. I guess the developers were working with a much earlier draft.

    Honestly, I think Prime barely did anything. Sam was the one who did all the hard job, which was run across the entire city avoiding Decepticons like Blackout and Starscream, and going into an abandoned building where Megatron almost killed him. I mean, he had the balls to not give Megatron the cube when he asked for it, and that's a big deal. Then, all Optimus did was catch Sam, and fight off Megatron for a bit, and constantly asking Sam to put the freakin' cube in his chest, but Sam did the right thing. He killed Megatron.

    I also noticed this a while ago. Prime just takes all the credit, when he was getting his butt handed to him (more like thrown at him) the whole time. If I was Sam, I would have spoken up.

    Pretty sure that was Bumblebee's doing, Sam just held the creepy bastard so that Bee could take the shot.
