    [Movies] Does every movie with Shia LaBeouf suck?

    Im curious what everyone thinks about this but i cant help but wonder how some movies might have turned out if a more interesting actor "" had taken Shias place. After watching transformers 3 and the Crystal Skull in the same week Im almost certain that any movie with him in it is destined to fail.

    EDIT: Removed "not experienced enough" (I suppose hes experienced enough)

    Well, he is experienced enough. He is just not good enough.

    I liked Holes, mind you I haven't seen it since I was about 12 years old, and my memory is cloudy and my taste in movies sucked back then.

    Disturbia was decent.. Rear Window copy.. not an exact remake, more of an updated version.

    He would have been fine in Holes if it weren't for the fact that the book had a fat kid in it and they could have certainly got in some new talent instead of just a standard name Disney actor.

    Transformers 3 rocked. It was in no way a failure. And I don't think Crystal Skull failed because of Shia, but because... well, Crystal Skull aliens. The rest of the Indiana Jones movies, while hinting at supernatural origins, never went out and said "Aliens... and magic... and Raptor Jesus".
    Not to mention that, back when the first 3 were made, that sort of story/action was fantastic, and now people are so used to everything exploding just by looking at it that a classic action/adventure isn't as intriguing.

    Edit:

    And yes, I loved Holes/Disturbia/Eagle Eye/Transformers 1 and 3

    I liked him in Wall Street 2 and Eagle Eyes. Holes was pretty good. Disturbia he was decent.

    Disturbia was kinda good and Eagle eye was a decent film.

    Transformers 3 was The Island v2.0

    As far as mindless action movies go, it was okay. However when it comes down to real movie issues (plot, acting, etc) - Transformers 3 was almost as bad as the second one.

    Transformers 3 was too long, imo. I still liked it, but it should've been a half hour shorter, at least.

    It all comes down to just preference, you paid to see the movie, so you had to have wanted to see it, despite him.

    I would have preferred Kid Rock's cover of Saturday Night's Alright to have Steven Tyler than Chad Kroeger, but I still listened to the song and enjoyed it, I just had a different preference for it.

    fyi, if a movie sucked in your eyes, it's b/c you probably had some lofty unmarketable high expectations. Not saying you should see a movie with low expectations, but it's a just a movie, get real. It's for entertainment, if an actor didn't live up to your hype, it's not going to change anything in the end. Nothing wrong with criticing a movie, but I doubt you dislike a movie just b/c of one actor. There has to be multiple reasons imo.

    If you don't like him, then don't see movies with him in it lol.

    The only movies i have seen him in are Holes, Eagle Eye, The Crystal skull, and the Transformers movies.
    I liked all of the movies except The Crystal skull, his acting was very good in all of the movies i have seen him in, The Crystal skull included even though the movie itself was crap (imo).

    Edit: He was also good in I-Robot ( I enjoyed the movie ).

    I thought he was good in just about every movie hes been in. I enjoy his acting

    He's not terrible, he just enjoys running more than acting, jokes aside transformers 3 and eagle eye were both hilarious movies, still decent tho

    If you had told me this kid would have been playing Sam Witwicky in Transformers movies later on, I'd have laughed at you and told you to get the hell out.
    He's done very well in terms of moving up.

    The characters he plays can be a little annoying but his acting is good enough to make me care. I have no problem with him. 70% of a character comes from the writers anyway/
