Shia LaBeouf hated Transformers sequel

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf says he “hated” Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The 23-year-old actor, who plays Sam Witwicky in the action franchise, admits the sequel was “confused” and he often didn’t know what was happening on set. He said: “There are a lot of people that liked the second one, but I hated it. I just didn’t enjoy it. I thought we missed the mark. I got confused, I couldn’t see what the f**k was going on, you know with certain robots… I couldn’t decipher what was happening. There were storyline paths that I just wouldn’t have gone down.” Despite his unhappiness, Shia has faith in the franchise’s producers and believes the forthcoming third instalment will be a big improvement. He told FHM magazine: “I know that directors Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg are dedicated to making the best movie we possibly can, and we’re not going to miss next time.”

    They should just stop at two Transformers movies.Actually they didn’t even need first two Transformers movies.

    Part 3 should just feature time traveling with omnicron and the dinobots. They really messed up on the contructicons and jetfire, sound wave could have also been a lot better instead of some stupid orbital satellite.

    The racist twin robots was real low also, they should just let James Cameron do it, god that would rock.

    I think the third Transformers should be in 3D

    I’ll stick with reading the comic adaptations of the movies they’re far better then what they put on screen.

    Thats what happens when writers go on strike and directors think they can write.

    A sequel is tough,especially if the one that preceeded it was strong. Trans 2 wasn’t bad at all, but I’m with Shia in hoping #3 hits a home-run !

    Why didn’t he say this before people spent $12 to see the movie?

    Gawd Micheal Bay is sooooo awful. I tell people younger than myself who question why I HATE the live action movies, it’s because the cheesy cartoon motion picture was 10000x better in every way. The voice acting in it was>acting in the live action, storyline/dialogue was better, and the live action movies were completely racist.

    Why is it Jazz was the only transformer not to survive? And WTF was the deal with those two twins? Melvin Van Peebles was probably steaming if he saw it. LOL and ya I know they are alien robots… but it’s quite obvious whoever wrote the dialogue for these movies wanted ‘ethnic sounding transformers’ and came up with that mess.

    Shia, you aren’t ‘the next Tom Hanks’ like a lot of media anointed you after the first Transformers’ box office success. But I’ve certainly gained much more respect for you as an actor because of these comments.

    Shia really likes the f— word. Thought he was a class act. Somewhat disappointed because kids look up to him. Do they really need to hear/read it from him?

    The only way Transformers 3 will be a success is if they step on Shia during the opening!

    I Really Enjoyed the 1st one But the 2nd sequel was not that good! I really did expect Better! It was mostly boring. Too many Transformers in it. So I agree with Shia. I almost hated it myself. Yes, I agree w/ one good Reviewer that since Children look up to him, he shouldn’t be swearing. No, since he tells us now that he hated the movie and not b4 it came out, I won’t be going to see the 3rd sequel!

    I wasn’t going to go see the 1st one and what a letdown for the 2nd one! So I won’t see the 3rd one. I disagree with a Reviewer that sed that they should stop making sequels cuz they’ve run out of ideas. To the contrary, there’s tons and tons of people in the States. With all due respect, ever heard of hiring good writters, that may be poor but have very good ideas?? Instead of University kids w/ good grades but mediocre ideas.

    i felt exactly the same way about the second…. i loved the first, and i think they missed the mark with the second, was a letdown.
