Transformers 3 to fix second flick’s flaws

Will be “craziest action movie ever”…

 

Today in the TF office it’s French Riviera day – yes, those of us what have been left behind during Cannes season are bringing France to us for the day, dammit.

Somebody who’s already over there lapping up the sun, though, is Shia LaBeouf, who’s been promoting Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps over at the Croisette.

Which, of course, means that journos have been asking him for the lowdown on Transformers 3, which is currently prepping with shooting to begin in a few months’ time.

First up, LaBeouf admitted that – like many fans – he was disappointed with the second Transformers smash-up. Says he…

“When I saw the second movie, I wasn’t impressed with what we did…There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone…we got lost. We tried to get bigger…Mike went so big that it became too big, and I think you lost the anchor of the movie.

“You lost a bit of the relationships. Unless you have those relationships, then the movie doesn’t matter. Then it’s just a bunch of robots fighting each other.”

That’s all set to be rectified with Transformers 3, though. The actor reveals that “there’s going to be a lot of death, human death” as “this time they’re targeting humans”.

If that doesn't whet the appetite like the smell of French brie, the actor went on to state that he and Michael Bay would be making “the craziest action movie ever made”.

Okay, sounds good, though “crazy action” doesn’t exactly solve that loss of "heart" and focus on relationships. Still, fingers crossed that Bay and co can bounce back and bring us something as entertaining as the first flick.

Now where did we put that Edith Piaf CD?

      I'll find it hard to look forward to it. After all the unnecessary hype and mixed reviews that this magazine alone gave ROTF, what do you believe until you see it for yourself?

      If they want to impress anyone, get rid of of that LaBeouf fella. What an annoying ball bag this fella is.

      Personally I don't want More humans. I'm glad that they are finally admitting they completely botched the franchise, the whole transformers lore, and just about everything else with ROTF. But what they still don't seem to get is that us Die-Hard TF fans couldn't really give two-s**ts about the humans. Nice to know they are planning on having much better relationships between the characters, and the four new top-class actors joining in is great, But WHY do they keep forgetting to have the interactions between the Giant group of memorable TF faves?? (Springer, Hot Rod, Kup, Ultra Magnus, Prowl, Hound, Blaster...anybody see where I'm going with this??)

      Oh yes - Unicron, Gavatron, Sweep, Thrust. Will they really kill Prime in this one? Then we'll have Rodinus Prime - oh, wait - his transformer as a campervan was c**p!!

      Very true PeterKane01, but as the story progressed in the comics and the laughable (yet I can't lie for me, deeply lovable) cartoon. They made up for The Mistake that is Rodimus Prime. Now Suprisingly he is a well loved figure of the Transformer Universe. As for killing Optimus Prime.....Naaaaah...can't be done...that was the major Botch of Transformers: ROTF. There is NO LONGER any reason to care if the "Robots" die; they can just come back with a snap of a finger. THe Transformers have always been able to be resurrected, but not just because a new spark was shoved in them. All I can hope from number three is it will recapture the imagination of the first installment. As for what I said about the robot characters, I was just hoping to see if there were any fans of the actual "robot characters" instead of having them be death drones in hunt of humans
