Michael Bay admits Transformers 2 was a mess

We all know that Transformers: Revenge of the fallen was a letdown. The story was a mess and the acting was pretty terrible in parts. Well it would appear Mr Bay agrees.

Michael Bay is quoted as saying:

“It was kind of a mess. It failed in some key ways. I learned from it, and now with this third movie we’re going back to basics and I absolutely believe this is going to be a much better film than the second one. I’m trying to make up for Transformers 2. I think we have something to prove with this third one.”

He went on explain what exactly went wrong.

“The big thing was the writers’ strike. We had three weeks to get our story and we were going into the movie without a script. It’s tough to do that. It was too big of a movie; there were too many endings or too many things that felt like endings. There was so much animation too, and we ran out of time. It felt like we were writing the script in the edit room, trying to put together a story.”

I’m not much of a fan of Bay, in my opinion he makes dumb movies because he believes that we as an audience are collectively not clever enough to buy into something more intelligent.

I am hoping that Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a better movie then the first 2 but I’m not going to hold my breath
