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.
