Michael Bay doesn't care about Transformers: Age of Extinction criticism

06.30.2014

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION was clearly going to be a critic-proof film from the moment that it was announced. With each film in Michael Bay's franchise receiving fewer positive reviews, the latest film is by far the worst with a measly 17% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But, it also hauled in $100 million, so who are the real losers in this situation?

Speaking with MTV about the hate his films get, Bay seemed to give less than a shit as to what critics think.

“They love to hate and I don’t care; let them hate,” he told MTV’s Josh Horowitz. “They’re still going to see the movie! I think it’s good to get a little tension. Very good.”

“I used to get bothered by it, but I think it’s good to get the dialogue going,” he said. “It makes me think, and it keeps me on my toes, so it’s good.”

I have always enjoyed Michael Bay films, to an extent. When he was making movies like THE ROCK, ARMAGEDDON, and BAD BOYS, there was a level of fun to his movie-making that made the films themselves a little more special. But, after getting the worst headache I have had in years seeing TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION (in 2D, no less), I realized that I concur with our reviews of this nearly three hour commercial. It may speak more to what fans like versus what critics do in that the movie had a solid A- CinemaScore rating, so I would expect any future films in this series to be louder and definitely not smarter.

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is now playing.

He shouldn't care

Hey if you were in his exact position, would YOU care? Hate on Bay all you want, there's an audience for him. Deal with it.

I'm happy to hear that Michael Bay doesn't give a shit about what the critics say and he shouldn't. The Transformers movies make A SHIT LOAD of money. The critics can hate all they want. Michael is swimming in money.

Why would he care?

Fan boys complain about the crap he makes, then like sheep they flock to see the film. Making this man a success, then In turn he feels no backlash, because the numbers are all the studios care about. Until every fan boy that rages, stick to their rage & refuse to watch Bay's garbage. Only then will Bay care about the criticism that he receives, because he be hired for projects.

As far as I'm concerned, no one should be able to criticize his work, because no one should watch his work.

Ah Michael Bay the Jerry Springer of big budget movies, just have a bunch of people that you think are worse off than you do stupid shit so you can laugh at them and feel superior, he has nailed the perfect formula. Unfortunately the unwashed masses are going to be eating this up until Idiocracy becomes a documentary not just a movie.

I don't like him and I don't like his movies. I think he's a homophobic, misogynistic jerkass, and I wouldn't mind that so much if his movies (other than The Rock and Pain and Gain) weren't total shit. However... I kind of respect his words here, to a degree. While I think he's full of shit that criticisms "keep him on his toes"--the man does what he wants, he doesn't give a fuck about criticisms--he says it with something almost like tact.

And while I don't think the box office for the new one is going to be as strong, it opened to 100m so he's not wrong about people seeing it, regardless of the criticisms.

I guess what I mean is, if he's having fun and people are paying him to do it to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, why the fuck SHOULD he care? Sure, I wish he used his not inconsiderable talents for good more often, but not every director is looking to create artistic enrichment, and I guess we shouldn't expect that.

On the other hand, Michael Bay still fucking sucks.

It's disappointing....

He can make good movies, I enjoyed The Rock and Bad Boys for what it is, and after Pain and Gain, I was hoping he can make a good transformers movie, but it seems it's the same. Ogling hot women in daisy dukes, bad jokes, racism, product placement every minute. Disappointing because I quite enjoyed the First Transformers.

I'll be skipping this one, and since it has made money, I won't be surprised if T5 will be same old same old

IDK why all the hate...

This had more human character developement then any of the other transformer films. Also there was just sooo much happening here that it begs to be watched numerous times, my only problem was they switched up galvatron so much. That was annoying, so how does UNICRON come into the picture now ? I hope they still put him in. Also LOCKDOWN was the sickest transformer ever. He was just nuts. Only thing I don't get is the age of extinction title, like was that refering to the dinobots ??? because I

Only thing I don't get is the age of extinction title, like was that refering to the dinobots ??? because I thought all along that the humans would be wiped out and everything. Sadly that didn't happen LOL. But I did enjoy it, I just felt something was missing maybe because it was so freaking long that my mind was imploding. But the 3D was astonishing and in IMAX was even more breath taking.

Revenge Of The Fallen was more to Age Of Extinction than this age of extinction..the title should be exchanged...All i saw about extinction in this no. 4 was when the movies begins where they showed how dinosaur died out..

I think because the humans wanted to make the TFs extinct, but in the process they would've made humans extinct via that terraforming device - hence extinction.

Anyway it finally seems like Bay was trying to do more with this series in the fourth film and everyone hates on it due to the fact that its a TF movie instead of actually looking at it as a movie on it's own terms.

Lockdown as SICK I have to agree and the sequence on his ship was AMAZING!

twice now

I've seen the movie twice now and it's great. Watching the film in IMAX is an amazing experience. The movie had a ton of great elements to it - jokes ( stanley tucci had at least 3 scene-stealing moments - i wonder if he ad-lib'd those parts ), scale ( the dinobots were amazing, lockdown's ship was HUUUUGE, there were moments during the movie when I felt like I was walking inside the ship with the characters ), john goodman being an autobot...I could go on and on, but I won't.

Michael Bay has the ability to make really good movies again - I know this because he's done it earlier in his career. However hearing shit like this come out of his mouth in response to actual, justifiable criticism makes me realize that his massive ego is never going away.

In fact it's only preventing him from growing as a filmmaker in my opinion. When most of the negativity around his Transformers movies (the racist and offensive stereotyping, the sexual misogynistic filming of women, the immature and juvenile humor) only grows with each passing addition in the series it proves that he doesn't give a fuck and has no interest in improving his craft. I mean look, I have no problem with people who love him or his movies but if he can't grapple with his criticisms and try to improve his craft because of his own selfish mindset then what's the point? I guess to make a bajillion dollars.. so yeah, maybe I see the point now.

Is it weird that my interest in Transformers 4 wanes significantly after I read the Wikipedia entry and spoiler-y articles? I still haven't seen the movie but it sounds like the same old crap I've watched since three movies ago. Yes I watched them all in theaters, mostly because I was hoping that the series will get any better and it didn't. There's a high chance that I might skip this one. Michael Bay may not care what the haters think, but I'm curious just how long he can keep this up.

Haters gonna hate

::APPLAUSE::

Thank you, Michael. Truer words were never spoken. Sorry to those who got a headache watching this one. I felt energized. Only negative thing I agree with is the fact that the movie was a little too long, but even that was not due to padding. So haters can shut up, IMHO. If you don't like Michael Bay's stuff, don't watch it.

I second to this!! Well minus the "long" part , bc I cant stand short movies that feel that they try to cram too much in a small time frame...the plus is that long movies I can enjoy the fun longer.. im glad there wasnt a whole lot of talking or set up that makes movies feel dragged..this was good from moment it starts with eithers laughs, drama or action..and a few " oh crap dont tell me...oh no, hope he doesnt die" lol

Of course he doesn't, he has the "f*** the haters" ability to tune everything out, something all true douchebags possess. When you look at behind the scenes material, you see a guy who thinks everybody on the set is his personal slave, that he should be able to yell a command and get what he wants immediately, disregarding what everyone else might be busy with at that moment. A director should be a leader and someone who gets things done, but he doesn't have to be and shouldn't need to be an

A director should be a leader and someone who gets things done, but he doesn't have to be and shouldn't need to be an asshole. Michael Bay is fully capable of making a good movie. I love The Rock. I regard Armageddon similarly to Independence Day. If he fully rejects the criticism, most of which is valid and justifiable, he cannot progress as a filmmaker.

He said once that he had accepted the criticism against TRANSFORMERS 2 and that he wanted to fix his mistakes. The 3rd one was an improvement and the action was more comprehensible. Why is he saying this now?

I have to say that this fourth movie was pretty entertaining. Part one didn't have enough transformer stuff. Part two had the worst comedy ever put to film. Three had great action but the story was weak. This one it seems was a step in the right direction.
They got rid of the horrible comedy, yes there was still unfunny comedy tho. But the autobots we're distinct and had some color to them. Walberg was better than Shia and the villains were strong both Kelsey and lockdown. So even tho I am

I think bay is at least trying to listen to the fans.
At the very least his action is incredible.
I think people are hating on this one because of the others and not judging them film by film.

When these movies have more criticism than box office receipts, this franchise will fade away like any other. Until that time, if you don't like these movies...then don't watch them.

From my experience, whenever anyone sums up something they're trying to defend as "Haters gonna hate", they pretty much have no legs to stand on whatsoever. Summer blockbusters don't need to be mindless action movies anymore...countless movies in the past few years have proven how smart, engaging, and thrilling those kinds of movies can be nowadays. So what excuse does Bay have for making Transformers so ridiculously dumb?

But yeah, $100 million opening weekend pretty much ensures this

But yeah, $100 million opening weekend pretty much ensures this franchise won't die out anytime soon. All we can do is point out the flaws, not support these idiotic excuse of "films" (even to satisfy our morbid curiosity. Just stop handing over your money to them already), and spend our money on things that actually deserve it (Edge of Tomorrow, Snowpiercer, THOSE are high-quality movies that deserve our money and don't insult our intelligence at every opportunity). Bay's racist, sexist, loud, brainless, offensive series of movies isn't one of those.

Couldn't have put it better myself, SauronsBANE. While it's not a universally-held opinion, I think Inception proved that the "thinking man's summer blockbuster" could indeed be very successful and a very rewarding experience for audiences.

" it also hauled in $100 million, so who are the real losers in this situation?"
No one is a loser in this situation. He made a movie, some like it, some hate it. No one forced you to see this film, so stop acting like your view is the ONLY one that matters. Haters and critics have this pompous belief that if your brain needs to be checked at the door, it's a horrible film.

$100 million??? Why are people stupid?

Big surprise this movie sucked! Horrible acting, terrible cinematography, boring fight scenes that blend in with each other. Human characters you don't care about and Mark Walhberg reprising his The Happening role.

Bad!

Went and saw it with my father and brothers this past Saturday. After the first action sequence involving Whalburg, I went to the bathroom and thought to myself. If wasn't there with family I would ask for a refund and go home. I was facepalming through the hole thing shaking my head.

I blame us

All we ever do is complain about how Hollywood only makes sequels and remakes. Well listen up people! When Micheal Bay's objectively shitty Transformers 4 makes 100 million dollars opening weekend, that's on YOU.

I feel the same way about the American public continually voting garbage and vermin into congress and the white house.

I think I lot of people hate Michael Bay because its the cool thing to do. Yes, he's an asshole and yes, some of his movies are terrible but he also has some good ones. He's defiantly not the worst director out there and his movies do have some great visuals . The first transformers was good but I do agree the the last one and the other 2 were complete turds. The Rock was a great movie and same with Bad Boys. Pain & Gain was also very well done.

I actually agree with everything you've said here from Bay being an asshole to Pain & Gain being well done (and The Rock was BADASS!). I will add though that the Transformers movie are unwatchable. I've only watched the first one all the way through and that's because a friend lent it to me on DVD. I couldn't finish the others. Maybe his lack of trying on Transformers when he's clearly capable of more (for now) is what's pissing people off?

Bay just proved how bad of a director he is.

He doesn't listen to feedback or criticism to make his movies better because he believes he doesn't have to. As long as people go to see his movies and shell out cash for the same shit they complained about three times already, he will never have to try make his movies any good. Just throw in some action, explosive SFX, and any script that doesn't treat the audience with respect. You will have a big hit there.

I honestly don't believe Michael Bay has the capacity to make his movies any better than they already are. The people who should listen to the criticism are the Paramount and Hasbro people.
