    You can vote for multiple options in this poll.

    Lets look at Sam in three separate movies he is in. Vote for when you approved of liked the character Sam Witwicky. I liked him in all three movies. He was relatable in TF1 and DotM. Ill admit he was a little off in RotF not wanting to be involved with the Transformers but still I don't think he's a bad character.

    In Transformers 1 he the relatable teen having first world problems just trying to get a hot girlfriend. And as a current 17 year old boy that someone you can relate to. Even as a 13 or 10 year old I can put myself in his place. Same with Dark of the Moon.

    How about never? Why did they hire Shia Labeouf to play a teenager when the audience of Transformers has and always will be children?

    I enjoyed him throughout TF1.

    TF2, umm...maybe some of his spazzy shard stuff made me chuckle, but the character himself sucked.

    TF3, not until Dylan took Carly.

    The first film. I've never disliked Sam.

    One and two. His involvement in the third film seemed a little forced and the whole job thing wasn't needed.

    I thought he was great in TF07 and despite the dogsh#t second half of RotF, I thought he was still likeable in the film. He was awful in DotM though he got a little better once he went on his mission to save Carly.

    Shia played him as a teenage character I could see then maturing through the other films...but sadly, his arc fell way short of the Luke Skywalker/chosen one stylings they could have given him.

    I always joked that his explaining to Simmons about Megatron was like a kid telling their parents about what toy they were looking at in the stores. You know, conversations like:

    "Honey, this guy looks cool."

    "Mom, he's not cool, he's a Decepticon! He wants to kill Optimus Prime!"

    (surely, there were a couple hundred of these parental talk-backs that we made in our youth).

    I've never hated him in the movies, it's just his screaming can be a little OTT, other that it can be funny.

    In TF1 I find him more relatable. He wants good grades, wants a car and wants to have a nice girl.

    In ROTF? Hmmm, not a lot really. He says to BB you should be with Optimus

    In DOTM he says to BB, you can't come and hang out

    Well excuse me mr picky.

    I agree. Although I enjoyed him I felt it was time to change the human cast up and am for the most part happy with what we got.

    I like him in all 3, but in TF07 he seemed the most relatable.

    I liked him the most in Transformers (2007); he was a naive, innocent child and a social underdog. There are shots in the first film in which he looks so innocent that I'm overcome with empathy.

    I found him alright in TF1 only.

    After that he always seemed like he was playing a caricature of Shia Le Bouf rather than Sam.

    I've always liked Shia as an actor, so I enjoyed him in every movie, especially in Transformers 3, with his mental breakdowns and all.

    I have that weird thing with him where you love someone even if said someone is a jerk.

    Only the first movie. He was a pain in the ass in the sequels.
