Don't worry guys, Shia LaBeouf says Transformers 3 is the best 3D movie ever made
If Shia LaBeouf was honest enough to say that TRANSFORMERS 2 sucked, should we trust his word that TRANSFORMERS 3 is going to be incredible? I'm as skeptical as you are, but he insists on raving about it.
His latest focus? The 3D aspect, a format which is suffering a visible backlash from audiences recently tired of dim pictures and overpriced tickets. But the Buff says it's totally going to be worth it.
“We took the 3-D cameras out of the ‘Avatar‘ stages and put them on the head of a dude jumping out of a plane in Chicago while a building is exploding. For real. Four or five dudes actually,” LaBeouf said. “It’s the greatest 3-D film ever made. It’s an amalgamation of ideas from Jim Cameron, Steven [Spielberg] and Michael [Bay]. “
And what will this 3D amplify? Why only the greatest action sequence in the history of cinema.
“The last hour of this movie is the greatest action sequence of Mike’s career, which would put it on the same level as the greatest action ever made,” LaBeouf said. “You don’t breathe for the last hour. There’s just no letup, but it’s also not completely overwhelming and disconnected, as the second movie was. You didn’t know what was fighting what or where you were geography-wise. There was no way to be able to tell a story, whereas this is very ‘Black Hawk Down‘ action. The geography is very clear. There’s only four or five dudes you need to be following. The enemy is very clear. The second movie was so … complicated. The best movies are simple.”
I'm not exactly sure how you make a "simple" movie about dozens of giant transforming robots who are constantly in the process of destroying things, but I'll look forward to seeing them try.
Trust LaBeouf? Will you spring for 3D for TF3?
|Extra Tidbit:||If there are in fact redneck NASCAR robots in the film as has been reported, I'm not sure anything else that happens can salvage that.|
