Says AP: At Cannes today, Shia Labeouf--who's pimping his upcoming drama Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps--told reporters he was less than satisfied with the results of his massively successful Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen (which makes him approximately the six billionth person to express that sentiment). "When I saw the second movie, I wasn't impressed with what we did," confessed the actor, who begins work on the new, improved, purportedly less racist Transformers 3 next week. "There were some really wild stunts in it," he added, "but the heart was gone." LeBeouf didn't specify exactly what kind of "heart" the first Transformers movie had that was going to be reclaimed in the third film. If he really wants to humanize the franchise a little, though, may we humbly suggest he actually crawls inside a Transformer and wears it like some high-tech, superpowered suit of armor? It's so crazy, it just might work.
