Hasty thoughts on the new film. I was expecting a giant car.
Ah Michael Bay, loud, rude, not afraid of speaking his mind and clearly having the time of his life and not giving a toss what people think of him. A person very easy to dislike, and who has made what may well be the ultimate review proof film series of all time with his three Transformers films. Critics have pretty much slammed and hated all three, but the paying public clearly don't care, flocking to see them in droves.
I've never been a particular fan of Bay, Armageddon annoyed me so much the internet doesn't have enough Picard facepalm pictures, and the least said about Pearl Harbor the better. However, for a director who excels at action scenes and explosions whatever his other flaws he was pretty much born to direct a film based around a principle which boils down to giant robots beating merry hell out of each other as things explode.
Stuart Webb. Who knows everything about nothing and not a lot about that.
