Who do you prefer?
Lennox. He's probably the most decent, noble human in the film.
To be fair it was a sort of tie between the two.
I prefer Lennox, but he's a really bland, cliche character. I'm surprised I don't find Epps more interesting, but I guess he doesn't get the screentime that Lennox does, even if Epps has some really entertaining scenes.
Lennox went from captain to major to colonel within each movie. By that, my pick goes to him.
Epps cause he had some funny ass lines.
"LEFT CHEEK! LEFT CHEEK! LEFT CHEEK!"
and of course their's the classic line from the trailer.
Lennox did get more screentime. Epps might as well be a random grunt in ROTF for all he did, and while Epps did get more to do in DOTM it took him so long to show up I actually thought he'd been written out like Mikeala, Leo and all those guys from the first film that never appeared again.
I honestly think Lennox should get the lead in the next movie.
Epps, Tyrese felt more natural in his role to me. I never really meshed with Lennox, neither how he was written, or how he was portrayed; he felt very forced to me in all three movies. When I found out Tyrese Gibson was gonna be in the movies, I thought I was gonna hate 'em, and also the "bring it" from the first movie's trailers didn't help. But when I see them all, I don't mind the Epps character.
For all intents and purposes - it is really a tie; the difference between the two is marginal at best - but I think that the Tyrese Gibson's enthusiasm for the material shows through in the performance, and that wins it. All in all though, both are easily the best humans in any of the three films and they should be bumped up to leads for TF4.
(I felt more deeply for Epps in DOTM with 'Becuase he killed my friends, too' in crystalizing the impact of the (supposed) death of the Autobots then I felt with any of Sam's hysteronics.)
Lennox is my favorite, mostly because of the first movie. I love Epps too though.
In the second movie both of them are wasted. In the third, Epps gets a better part, IMO.
Tough choice. I like both, but if I had to choose, I'd say Epps narrowly edges out a win over Lennox.
Epps because he has some great and funny lines like
LEFT CHEEK! LEFT CHEEK!
I don't know man have you seen this shit!?!!!
Why do the Decepticons get the good shit.
Really both are one of the few things I care for in movieverse really I feel there equal. I just remeber when Ty was Baby Boy & Josh was Leo on All My Children before he cheated on Furgie.
Tie, they were both great human characters.
Well I'd like a "both" option because I do like them both. But since Lennox pissed me off in DoTM, my
vote goes to Epps!
Lennox. But Epps is awesome too.
I'm kinda curious how Lennox pissed you off in DOTM?
I didn't like the character in it as much as I did in the other two either. I would say Duhamel phoned it in, but he also didn't have anything to work with, material wise.
It's a tie for me.
