I think his character dies like Lucas early on because he was barely on set.
Literally the first thing that came to mind when I saw this earlier today lol
old phone form July, please send other information,please.
Funny Sidekicks just can't catch a break in this universe.
It would be hilarious if that's a thing that starts happening: Every comic relief that's there in the beginning just dies in a horrifying fashion.
I mean, who's next? McLuvin?!
OMFG ANOTHER LIQUOR STORE IN A TRANSFORMERS MOVIE
No he lives on till at least the ship/water scene where we see Cade being sprayed by water and sliding all over the ship. He was in a few scenes I was able to watch being filmed at the Michigan Motion Picture Studio. One where he was trying to help Cade get up after a fall and another where he's yelling for Cade to hold on. The ship in water scene is in the later portion of the movie. At least thats what I was told on set.
Good to know cause I prefer they don't kill him off early on.
Knowing you'll only be in the movie for a few minutes as comedic relief like....
I believe this is something that they started doing in horror movies at one point; Introduce a funny character and kill them to make the movie seem more emotionally dark.
Admittedly though, while its nice to have some main character deaths in the movie, it should actually mean something to the characters if someone dies. I almost completely forgot about the comic relief character's death in Age Of Extinction because other than the image of him after being killed, nothing about the character really stood out other than being comic relief - and the characters didn't really acknowledge it much.
To be honest, I think Bay had the character Lucas killed off more so for the fact he hated his humor and wanted to make sure we hated it too before finally killing him off.
I know it worked with me at least, I despised Lucas and cheered when Lockdown killed him before proceeding to forget about his existence as the film went on.
Oh, ffs...Michael Bay didn't hate T.J. Miller's humor. That's obviously NOT how you get a starring role in "A Michael Bay Movie," lolwtf.
You are COMPLETELY blowing out of proportion the behind-the-scenes story of Bay criticizing Miller on-set for his ad libs not being funny enough, which is bound to happen on ANY several-hundred-million dollar movie when you hire someone to do a job and they're not meeting expectations under time constraints.
Shit rolls downhill and Bay runs a tight ship.
But Kruger and Miller clearly got the job in the first place because Bay knew they'd deliver. They just needed a little more "encouragement" sometimes, lol.
Well I only thought he hated his humor because I saw it mentioned on these forums before. Admittedly I hadn't looked deeper into it due to lack of interest.
But despite that, my opinion still remains the same on Lucas' death. Actually... now that I think about it, my entire family cheered at seeing him getting killed. Kind of funny, but of course the reaction is from personal opinions.
Fair enough. But that's the origin of it...basically T.J. Miller talked some shit about Bay being gruff on the set with him over not being funny enough while some Make-a-Wish kids were there. That's not really "hating his humor," that's just having a rough day and being rushed under lots of pressure. Which is pretty much par for the course, obviously.
I still disagree about your estimation of the way it was handled, though.
Sure, we're supposed to understand that it's his fault that Jaegers get busted with Prime on their property, but the movie also goes out of its way to establish over and over again that he's a good guy and good friend who was just doing what he thought was best for the family and that even though he wound up accidentally endangering them they still understood he meant well and mourned his death, regardless.
Yeah I admit I made that guess under the assumption that Bay hated his humor and fashioned the scenario with the mindset of if it were me in his shoes. So yeah I agree, it was a faulty guess since it was more of a me thing to do rather than a Bay thing to do.
