Indeed. I saw a free screening of Transformers 2 and kind of doubted the future of american action cinema, especially with the large amount of money it did end up making.
Bay elaborates that the problem with the film was that it happened during the writers strike but I personally think there is more wrong with it than that. Specifically, the giant transformer with swinging wrecking balls that resemble testicles sums up the film for me. Why wasn’t that image used on any posters?
Also, the article says Bay said that while not smiling. I don’t want him to come off as smarmy…
Ah. Much better.
