“When I saw the second movie, I wasn’t impressed with what we did,” LaBeouf said in an interview Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival, where his finance drama “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” is premiering. “There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone.”
On the second movie, “we got lost. We tried to get bigger. It’s what happens to sequels. It’s like, how do you top the first one? You’ve got to go bigger,” LaBeouf said. “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.”
With “Transformers 3,” the toll of the robot war will be grave for our planet, LaBeouf said.
“There’s going to be a lot of death, human death. This time, they’re targeting humans,” LaBeouf said. “It’s going to be the craziest action movie ever made, or we failed.”
I love Shia because of this, whatever he says makes sense.
What do ya think?
