    Who do you prefer? I preferred Sam, mainly because his relationship with the Autobots was WAYY stronger than Cades. Cade was one boring ass dude for me. His involvement with Transformers felt EXTREMELY forced and he was really DULL. I also don’t get how some people say Shia wasn’t a great actor, screaming no (which was probably something he was told to do) doesn’t make him bad.... Autobots Exile is a prime example of his good acting, it set the tone. If you swapped Shia with Wahlberg in scenes like this it wouldn’t have anywhere near the same effect.

    Sam was at least a more relatable character for some than Cade. If I had to choose, I'd choose Sam.

    Cade. Contrary to the original post, I felt Cade had a stronger relationship with the Autobots than Sam ever did.

    Cade. He seemed more willing to get involved with the Autobots, especially in TLK, and he wasn't as annoying as Sam.

    Cade... He seems closer to Spike. Sam is too neurotic.

    I grew up with the Marvel comics Witwickys, so I was pretty disappointed when we got a screamer. I liked Cade a bit more though he's definitely not someone I'd want to hang around with.

    But I'd pick Charlie over both of them any day.

    This. Cade Cade Cade. Did you watch the same movies I did, OP? Sam spends all the movies literally trying to just live his own life and get as little involved as possible. He only gets things done because he is forced to or he cannot avoid the circumstances. Cade goes out of his way to help Optimus and the Autobots, actively helping to hide and shelter them in TLK.

    Sam? Sam literally just fucks off in ROTF. Leaving his BFF Autobots for school. Gets FORCED into action in the events of ROTF. DOTM? Leaves his BFF for work and leaves the Autobot struggle behind. Gets FORCED AGAIN into action.

    Cade is a better protag and a better friend any way you look at it. People who say Sam either didn't actually watch AoE and TLK or watched alternate reality versions of the first three where Sam is an actual character with actual writing and arcs.

    Lmao, Cade is a boring and uninteresting character, just some dumb inventor. Put Cade in Sams position during Autobot exile and wouldn’t have anywhere near the same positive effect. I agree with what you said in ROTF, but DOTM proves the contrary, he does give a shit, and way more than Cade. DOTM he was legit the complete opposite of “forced”, the Autobots had military work to do that Sam WANTED to be a part of, clearly you either didn’t watch the movie or didn’t listen properly. Sams relationship with them is 10000x more believable and he had way more of an effect than boring generic ass Cade ever did. Especially in TLK, he's super shallow and doesn't have lot to his character besides vague "destiny" and whatnot.
