I haven't decided if I like Shia or not yet... Sugar you're right about Oliver ruining MNS, but Shia didn't help it. All and all I say its a fair movie not great but not terrible. I never watched Indiana Jones 4 because I wasn't going to fall for it.
I didn't like Shia in MNS, and I watched the first 20 min of Transformers before I had to walk out of the room and pick up a book (friends were over watching the movie). The Naked & Dead in word form > Transformers in Bay form.
I did like Shia in Lawless and the flaws of the movie were not in his acting but in the writing and directing. So I'm undecided about Shia as an actor... none of his previous roles appealed to me but as far as his ability I'm willing to believe to has some talent. Despite its flaws, Lawless was one of the more entertaining movies I've seen this year and Shia was a big part of that.
