Default Re: Megatron Throughout The Trilogy

His "role" in the movies was the main problem. In the first movie, he was a sort of McGuffin for the Decepticons. He couldn't get much characterization, because he was a popsicle for most of the movie.

The second movie had a similar problem. He was dead for much of the movie. Then when he did came back they had a chance to expand upon him, but we quickly found out that he was the Fallen's lackey. So, he spends the first half of the movie incapacitated, and the second half in the Fallen's shadow. So not only was he under-characterized, he was also emasculated.

They just didn't care.
