Shia LaBeouf says filming ROTF was dangerous

Motto: "I'm your huckleberry."
Weapon: Dual Laser Cannon
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.

It's probably going to be cheesy, but at least it'll be a spectacle.

There is gonna be stuff blowing up everywhere...I have to wonder if Bay may have even outdone his normal destructive potential in this movie. One thing's for sure- excitement doesn't sound like it's going to be in short supply.
It finally happened. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Yes, I cried.

His comment doesn't surprise me. Shia tends to hype everything up. I reserve the word 'dangerous' for things like Jackie Chan doing his own stunts without a safety net.

I hope the movie is not overly focused on the military. Especially as we know how much Michael Bay loves the US military.
