Who are the best human characters we have gotten so far?

Postby william-james88 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 3:03 pm

Hey, doing a bit of research on a topic I actually had very little interest in when it comes to Transformers, humans.

But I understand that they have been a part of Transformers fiction since the begining and they do have a place in it. But I just never cared. This changed in Bumblebee where I did care for a few of the human characters, like Hailey and I always found the Patrick Dempsey character tobe the best part of DOTM, but thats because everything else was just so bad.

So I ask you now, which human characters do you like from the live action movies and why?

My first choice is of course Sam. Yeah, the character was written with some unnecessary quirks, and Shia Lebouf might have overacted in some scenes, but he was still the driving force behind the whole story, at least once he got in contact with the Transformers. Everything they did revolved around him.

I know I'm in the minority in this, but I also found his parents entertaining, with the exception of his mother getting high in RoTF. Otherwise, they were funny.

My 3rd choice is Lennox. Through all his appearances, he stayed the same. A loyal, dedicated soldier, regardless of what his rank was.

Honorable mention is Bobby Bolivia for stealing the scenes he was in. RIP Bernie Mac.

I really like Sam arc in first and second movies,where he went from someone who doesn't want take part in the Transformers Wars,to someone willing to risk his life to help them.You can this specilly in ROTF,wheree there is no concrete reason to carry on after the Matrix turns into dust,but he still belives he can save Optimus.

Seymour Simmons was great in my opinion.I though his just okay in the first one,where he was obligatory government agent to stand in the way of the protagonists,but as time went on,he evolved to something else.He was still over the top,but he was still willing to lend his help to be a part of something bigger.


Dutch in Dark of Moon is a great example how you can make the most of minor role.He was just fun to watch!

Cade Yeager in Age of Extinction helps Optimus to stand again(literally and metaphorically) ,even if he didn't have to.He was a nice guy.May go on more detail later.

Without getting into spoilers,Charlie's companionship with Bumblebee is really endearing and sweet.
