2021.11.29 15:16 LeaderVladimir1993 Why movie Megatron is actually underrated
| Hello, everyone! It's been quite some time since I've written something about Transformers, so I want to take this opportunity to talk about the live-action incarnation of Megatron). A lot of criticism has been thrown towards the live-action movies, especially the character portrayals, but I think Megatron isn't really a bad character. Quite the opposite, actually. I think he's a good character that had some interesting qualities, it's just that his development could have been a lot better. What do I mean with that? Well, let's hop in and find out.|
For the purposes of this opinion piece, I will describe Megatron's traits and how the movies could have used them to build up his character to make him a believable antagonist. Also, I'll do my best to stick only to what the movies give us and avoid any secondary material, like books, comics and video games.
From the very first movie, we see that Megatron is filled with hatred and rage, not just against humans but also against other Cybertronians, especially Optimus himself. I think that's a pretty good basis to start developing his character. Megatron is someone motivated by rage, but unlike Optimus, who is capable of channeling that rage into something positive, Megatron would rather die than let go of the rage that has defined him for so long. Peace and tranquility are anathema to a born warrior like Megatron.
The movies could have made comparisons on how Optimus and Megatron and more similar than either would care to admit. Well, Megatron would at least try to use this particular aspect of their relationship to try to turn Optimus to his cause. As we see in the movies, Megatron's fighting style is essentially aggression personified. Megatron doesn't fight to win, he fights to make his opponents suffer. In the first movie, we see him tear Jazz in half and even flick a defenseless human like an insect. Megatron could have observed that Optimus fights with the same ferocity he does and acted like the metaphorical devil on Optimus' shoulder.
What I'm trying to say is that Megatron could have been Optimus' personal Darth Vader, a character who constantly attempts to bring out the worst in the hero and to give in to the dark side and Megatron would have an easier time trying to corrupt Optimus, because unlike Luke Skywalker, Optimus had litle to no access to genuinely caring mentor figures. The Fallen murdered his own brothers, Sentinel betrayed in the worst way possible and the Knights of Iacon care more about their own traditions over the life of their own apprentice. Seriously, with the universe throwing so much crap at Optimus, it's a miracle the poor guy was able to turn his own pain into agency.
But I'm getting off-track here, so the next point I want to bring up is that despite his anger, Megatron can be patient and determined when the situation calls for it. Yes, plenty of people bring up the fact that Megatron essentially becomes a punching bag in Revenge of the Fallen onwards, but when you take a closer look, you realize that fortune is conspiring against him. People say that Megatron was only a real threat to the Autobots in the first movie, but in that movie, Megatron fought Optimus in the middle of a densely populated area, and Optimus was trying to appeal to what little goodness remained in Megatron's spark, but we all know what happened. The only reason Optimus survived that battle is by the skin of his proverbial teeth, human assistance and because fortune conspired in his favor.
Revenge of the Fallen is where people started to say that Megatron started to become weak and play second-fiddle to other villains, like the Fallen or Sentinel. Again, if you take a closer look, you realize that circumstances are bending themselves backwards to give the good guys a chance to beat Megatron. By the time Revenge of the Fallen begins, Megatron has been rusting under the sea for more than 2 years and then he gets rebuilt in a bulky new body that does increase his strength and durability but decreases his speed and mobility. He acts in the same way a human would act if his body suddenly gained extra muscle mass. His movements become slow and easy to dodge, which is why Megatron calls for support in the infamous forest battle against Optimus.
By this point in the story, the skill gap between both characters has significantly decreased. Aside from the disadvantages Megatron is enduring, Optimus has spent the last 2 years hunting runaway Decepticons and gaining experience as a warrior. Also, the numerical advantage the Decepticons have on Optimus during the forest fight is quickly turned against them when Optimus changes tactics and instead of overpowering them through brute force, he outmaneuvers them and switches targets whenever possible, to the point that the Decepticons have to hold their fire, lest they will hit one of their own, unless Megatron doesn't care about that, of course. For a brief moment, Optimus gains the upper hand, until Megatron sees an opening and kills Optimus. Don't worry, he gets better.
In the battle at Egypt, the tables take a decisive turn against the Decepticons when Optimus gets a new power-up thanks to Jetfire. Not only does he possess aerial mobility, he also gains superior physical strength over Megatron; which leads to Megatron's crushing defeat and the Fallen's death. I also liked that scene because underneath his ruthlessness and hatred, Megatron demonstrates that he isn't stupid. He is more than willing to attack Optimus for the death of his mentor but Starscream tells him the battle is lost and the Decepticons will gain nothing if they continue to fight.
Yes, Starscream says that "sometimes cowards do survive", but let's look at this situation closely, shall we? The Fallen is dead, the solar harvest has been destroyed, most Decepticons have been either killed or captured and Megatron himself is greviously injured. The risk is higher than the reward and Megatron himself knows that, so for once, he swallows his pride and calls for a retreat. The battle is lost, but in his spark of sparks, Megatron knows there's still a chance to win the war.
This leads to the events of Dark of the Moon; where Megatron is still consumed by the desire of revenge against Optimus, to the point that he neglects medical attentions for the injuries he sustained in the previous movie. Look at him! He kills the small robots repairing his face whenever his angry or bored! Fortunately, Megatron has a backup plan: his deal with Sentinel. The deal works like a charm: the Decepticons start a massive invasion on Earth and start bringing Cybertron itself into Earth's orbit.
Victory is within the Decepticons' grasp until Sentinel makes it clear that he is the devil in their deal, not Megatron as it was previously believed. Megatron realizes he has met someone equally as ambitious and ruthless as he is and what's worse, he might not be strong enough to overthrow Sentinel if the plan succeeds. Hell, even Carly says that Megatron will become Sentinel's bitch even if his own faction wins the battle. That's where Megatron hits his breaking point. He'd rather die than let someone else take command of his army. It's like he said in Revenge of the Fallen: "even in death, there is no command but mine."
This gives Megatron a small amount of depth. Yes, he can be patient but even he has his limits, which leads him to attack Sentinel just as the latter is about to kill Optimus. He isn't doing that out of goodness of his spark because, as I told you before, Megatron doesn't have any lingering goodness in him; he wants to be in charge and if that requires him to kill an ally, then so be it. Unfortunately, Megatron's rashness proves to be his undoing, as Optimus catches on to Megatron's true intentions and kills him.
Now, this might seem like an underwhelming finale to the story of a character who is normally so important to the Transformers mythos, but Age of Extinction proves that Megatron's story is not yet over. Megatron, though some cosmic twist of fate, survived his apparent death and is using human resources to properly resurrect himself under the guise of Galvatron. His new form comes with benefits. He gets to fight Optimus a second time, 1v1, in the whole saga and, amazingly, Galvatron is able to keep up with his mortal enemy and even comes very close to kill him quite a few times. The only reason he isn't able to go through with it is because Lockdown intervenes and Megatron realizes he can't blow his cover. This is yet another testament of Megatron's patience and determination: he is sacrificing short-term satisfaction (the death of Optimus) for long-term gain (the acquisition of the Seed).
Megatron does play his cards right in Age of Extinction. He corrupts the army of human-made Transformers and turns them into his new Decepticons and the only real mistake he makes is that he underestimated how quickly the Autobots would bolster their own forces. Yes, the Decepticons have strength in numbers but they are badly decimated by the teamwork between Autobots and Dinobots, forcing Megatron to retreat yet again. Unlike Lockdown, however, Megatron lives to fight another day because, much like in Revenge of the Fallen, he deems it foolish to take on an enemy that now possesses every possible advantage. Once again, he proves to be smart enough to deem the risk higher than the reward.
This leads to the events of The Last Knight, where Megatron enters into another uneasy alliance with Quintessa. Now, we don't know who controls who in this scenario. Megatron does possess a red mark in his face but he has more freedom and autonomy than Optimus, who was explicitly brainwashed by Quintessa; so it's easy to assume that Megatron merely accepted the red mark as a way to get into Quitessa's good graces and then he could kill her when she lets her guard down.
In the movie's final battle, Megatron actually does a decent job at defending himself from an oncoming squad of Autobots. He actually fends them off in straight-up combat and the only way the Autobots are able to to take him by surprise is when Hot Rod uses his time-stopping powers against him. Megatron perserves, however, and comes very close to ending Optimus' life again, only stopping to gloat about how he and Optimus used to be brothers. Unfortunately, history repeats itself and Optimus is able to beat Megatron and throw him off Quintessa's sanctuary. What happened in Revenge of the Fallen happened again, only this time Megatron let his guard down and Optimus is the one who saw that opening.
Unfortunately, this is where Megatron's story comes to an end, as Hasbro and Paramount have gone back to the drawing board and only Primus knows what will happen in the next Transformers movie. What I'm trying to say is that movie Megatron isn't really a bad character. As I described above, Megatron has plenty of positive traits that could have made his story interesting, but the Transformers movies have bcome to the go-to example for entertainment media that emphasize style over substance.
Even in the "Megatron plays second-fiddle to other villains" complaint holds no water when you take into account that other famous villains have served as lieutenants to other, more dangerous antagonists throughout countless examples in fiction. Darth Vader, one of the most famous villains in cinema, was ultimately a glorified slave to Darth Sidious; Lex Luthor willing submitted to the whims of Brainiac in the DC Animated Universe; King Ghidorah was turned into an anti-Godzilla weapon in at least two separate occasions; Sauron, the OG fantasy villain, started out as a lieutenant to Morgoth, Middle-earth's original Dark Lord, before striking out on his own and even Megatron himself became Unicron's slave in the original animated. And of course, we all know of a certain air commander who plays second fiddle to Megatron in countless Transformers stories and is biding his time so that he can usurp Megatron when he least expect it.
What I'm trying to say here is that when a villain gets usurped by another villain, it doesn't necessarily mean that the villain, in this case Megatron, is being disrespected. It just gives the viewers an opportunity to see what the villain does when he is stripped of his power and authority and he is forced to rely on his own merits to climb back to the top. This isn't exclusive to villains, heroes have also been stripped of their powers and accomplishments and have to prove themselves worthy of what they have earned. Sometimes, you need to let your characters fall so they can rise again and remind viewers why do they love the characters in the first place and I think the movies did an... acceptable job with Megatron.
Well, that's all I have for you this time time. Now is your turn to tell me what do you think about all of this. Please keep in mind that these are just my opinions and you neither have to like them nor agree with them. That's the beauty of having an opinion. Posting my opinions here doesn't make them any greater or more valid than yours and, at the end of the day, I'm just glad to have this privilege and this honor to share my opinions with you. I've always treated my essays (if you wanna call them that) as the start of a dialogue), so feel free to express your opinions in a friendly and civilized manner. We're all Transformers fans, we just see things differently. So leave a comment below, thanks for your time and stay safe out there!

I have returned to the game after a long break and I'm trying to make sense of what state my affair in. My safe is right after returning from Elven Nation so it is Govern part 2.
The wiki guide says that Noble Liaison can be funded every round and that I can check the status with her. But for me she only says "I must say, while this operation is rough in some ways, it's very effective. I've done all I can to help."
What am I missing? Why Can't I fund here again?
