    Aside from Sam and his love interests, I think we'd all agree that William Lennox and Robert Epps are the most prominent Human characters (excluding Simmons). As the two characters who have (arguably) the most interaction with the Autobots since they're part of NEST, which one do you like more? Also, which one do you think the writers and Michael Bay like more? Personally, I like Epps more. While Lennox seems like the straight-laced military guy who doesn't seem to have much characterization outside of being a commanding officer (excluding his personal scenes in the first film), Epps' has grown to be more of a personal character since the first film. In Dark of the Moon, he has a bigger role than Lennox; he vows to help Sam find his girlfriend and get revenge against Dylan; he also seems to get more screen-time than Lennox, especially throughout the film's climactic battle sequence in Chicago. Why do you guys think this is the case?

    That's still vague. Why is he more interesting? He has little characterization aside from being the standard military guy, unlike Epps.

    Do you have to ask for reasons for everything? I mean, just look at the nature of all your threads, you always ask for complete information. Can't we just be concise when posting to you threads?

    Anyway, neither. You should have given us a both option.

    I always felt that Epps was the more experienced solider, so I guess I'll go with Epps, but honestly speaking, I don't care much for both. I just wanted to see the big f'in' robots:p 

    I thought they were both Air Force.

    One of those really tough calls. Both characters have a lot of positives and very few negatives so it's hard to go wrong with either choice.

    But I'm going to have to pick Epps just because I like his personality in the films just a tiny bit better than Lennox.

    It's just too bad they couldn't have Josh Duhamel replace Channing Tatum as Duke in the GI Joe movies. Josh Duhamel was pretty much playing Duke in the Transformers movies while Channing Tatum seems to be contending for the title of most boring man in the world.

    Why do you guys think Epps got more screen-time and story-involvement than Lennox in Dark of the Moon?

    That doesn't make any sense. I am the Op. Why would I ask myself a question?

    Epps FTW. I always liked both, but in DOTM Lennox was like a wooden board and boring, while Epps still had some kind of personality.

    DOTM deffinately swayed me to Epps. Lennox didn't really do anything in DOTM, but Epps was a good character and had some great moments.

    Sorry for not answering initially; I thought you were being rhetorical. Anyhow, I ask for complete information because the purpose of a thread is to incite discussion. Simply providing a simple, one-word answer isn't very fun nor interesting and doesn't leave much room for discussion. :)
