Bay is the high-octane, kick-ass director of crass blockbusters like Pearl Harbour and The Island. He also made the thoroughly Bad Boys films and somehow garnered a reputation for being a great action director.
In fact Bay is cringingly awful at direction, heavy handed, laughably ham-fisted and often nausea inducing. He enjoys flashy quick cuts, speeding blurs with action music blaring and insincere sentiments. Bay is also happy to fill his films with shots of the American flag and adverts for anybody willing to pay, he'll gladly bend over and whore himself for money. He likes to pilfer scenes from popular movies too, often in their entirety.
For some reason Bay has been adjudged to be capable and worthy of directing loud blockbuster nonsense and we can only hope the fact that all of his films have been moronic garbage will eventually become clear to everyone. In the meantime avoid anything with his name attached.
