In a recent article posted by My Park Magazine
, Shia LaBeouf and others comment on the filming experience of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and the safety level that seemed to be a non factor."During filming I've got 75 military officers firing at me, shrapnel falling on my head that's bigger than my arms. It's hard to be normal", stated the 22 year old LaBeouf, "You're running past them, and your clearance is only about 10 feet. These dudes are moving, and if one trips or falls and we run into the muzzle of a blank, that could blow your chest open or burn you."
It seems that adding realism to the film was a huge factor during filming and if Shia's comments aren't convincing enough, Lieutenant Colonel Gregory Bishop of the United States Army stated that he's never seen a joint military operation, involving all branches of the military, on this scale before for a movie.
This statement supports our previous report on the US Military's involvement in the filming of Revenge of the Fallen here.
Lt. Col. Bishop served as a military liaison for the film.
