Shia LaBeouf is "super proud" of 'Transformers 3', claims it won't suck

(Did Michael Bay crush that little kid's dreams?)

I'm not all that familiar with Transformers, but from what I understand, those that are were rather disappointed with Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, to put it lightly.  Still, despite horrendous reviews, accusations of racism and sexism, and only a 20% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Transformers 2 grossed over $400 million in the United States and more than double that worldwide.  We all knew that Transformers 3 was coming.  It was only a matter of time.  After all, Michael Bay seems to have a pathological need to put out a film about explosions every few years.  

But should we automatically assume the worst of Transformers 3?  Maybe, maybe not.  Either way, star Shia LeBeouf (who plays Sam Witwicky in the movies) has been going out of his way lately to assure fans that Transformers 3 will not suck. 

LaBeouf spoke to MTV News this week:

This is, and I’m not just BS-ing you, it’s the best movie we’ve made of the three by far…The script is the best script we’ve had…The second movie, we were in the middle of a writers’ strike, writing on the go…The first movie, we had the discovery, and this movie really is the fruition of the rhythm we’ve created out of five years working together. I’m super proud of this movie.

In the same interview, LaBeouf also confirmed that Transformers 3 will be his last film for the franchise.

I’m never going to do it again… This is the last one, so it’s balls-out. This is the best movie we’ve made, period, and that’s a unanimous decision by everybody. [...] I’m very, very, very, very proud of it.

What are your thoughts?  Personally, I would rather see another Even Stevens movie...  Forget Transformers, Shia - get back to your Disney Channel roots! 

Transformers 3 will hit theaters in July 2011.
