What if Michael Bay had directed one of the Harry Potter movies? This video answers that question by showing exactly how it would have turned out.
This captures Michael Bay perfectly. It shows how he (over)uses slow-motion and explosions, how he inserts sex scenes and innuendo at awkward moments, and how everything he creates is just show without substance.
I’m saying I have never enjoyed a Michael Bay film – I liked Bad Boys and I liked the first Transformers movie – but as my taste in films has evolved I have seen what a hack he really is.
Still, he makes a load of cash for the studios which employ him, so they will keep on employing him time and time again. And a certain kind of audience likes what he does. Unfortunately.
