Michael Bay on last “Transformers” sequel: “That was crap.”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Transformers” director Michael Bay has faced some harsh criticism over the years. Film journalists haven’t been kind to his robot-crushing blockbuster franchise. Now it seems like Bay is jumping on the Bay-bashing bandwagon.

In an interview with Empire magazine, Bay took shots at his second “Transformers” film, “Revenge of the Fallen,” which he described as “crap.”

“The real fault with (Transformers 2) is that it ran into a mystical world,” Bay said, blaming the film’s problems on the writers’ strike that shut the industry down a few years back.

“When I look back at it, that was crap. The writers’ strike was coming hard and fast. It was just terrible to do a movie where you’ve got to have a story in three weeks.”

Bay continued, “I was prepping a movie for months where I only had 14 pages of some idea of what the movie was. It’s a BS way to make a movie, do you know what I’m saying?”

This isn’t the first time someone associated with the “Transformers” sequel has taken a shot at “Fallen.” Shia LaBeouf opened up to the press at Cannes last year and admitted, “When I saw the second movie, I wasn’t impressed with what we did. There were some really wild stunts in it, but the heart was gone.”

Will it return in time for the third “Transformers” movie, which is due in theaters on July 1? We’ll find out soon enough.
