Michael Bay Defends Transformers
Michael Bay isnt really the kind of director you want to get on the wrong side of, as Megan Fox can testify to, so if you are planning on publicly debasing the playboy director in front of a room full of journos then do so at your own peril.
At a recent press conference for Bays third installment of the Transformers franchise, Dark Of The Moon, a journalist branded his film Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, a 'flop'. Bay was quick to retort claiming '“Your comment is a little insulting to the artists who worked on this. The movie did make a lot of money"
“I admit it's not one of my better films. It's by far not the worst film ever made; that's just false... The movie doesn't make $835 million being the worst film.”
Bay has always come to the defense of Fallen, which often receives a lot of criticism by saying
"We had a writer's strike during movie two, so it was a tough game getting it going"
“It really wasn't fair to the writers because normally a movie like this would take eight months to write and, because of the strike, the writers had about three, so it was a complicated, rough process making that movie"
Theres no denying the fact that whether you love him or loathe him , Michael Bay is undeniably one of the greatest action directors of his generation, since Bad Boys he has practically created his own style of action and his films continue to rake in the cash being big favourites with the male teenage demographic who he often cites as his target audience.
“On the third one we tried to get it right and really deliver and I think we did. It's the best of the three, personally, to me.”
Transformers: Dark Of The Moon will hit cinema screens on the 29th June in 3D.
