The only thing surprising me here is that Michael Bay is making another "Transformers" movie. Hasn't he done enough damage? By now, even Shia Labeauf is out of the picture (last time I checked). He just released a different-but-still-crappy movie with The Rock and Mark Whalberg that looked like a homo-erotic parody of "The Fast/Furious" movies. Some people liked it and it was a change of pace. So, why not stick with something else that is different and original (other than the money they are throwing at him)? Any other action movie that is PG-13 or rated-R.
Is he afraid to direct a different action movie, because of "The Island" flopping? That was his best directed and executed movie period and it should have made its money back. He needs to take another chance on new material. And the "Transformers" series needs to sit it out for several years, and eventually allow a fresh director with lower-budget experience to show how to truly depict the Transformers. So much money and bullcrap was wasted on all three movies. I never watched the cartoon, but even I know that there was something to the robots' personalities, and that any movies about them should be 66% focused on the robots, not the paper-thin human characters. There was something to the original "Ninja Turtles" movie, and the reboot they're trying to make will probably largely focus on April O'Neal's search for the mysterious turtles after sightings, and not provide enough material for the turtles.
