“Transformers,” which Bay recently said cost $150 million to make, is expected to easily climb well above the $200 million mark domestically. Penned by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtz-man, pic was produced by Tom DeSanto and Don Murphy.
I saw the movie last week. It was okay. It was a total Michael Bay film, complete with (human) characters I could give a rats ass about, rambling side plots that have very very very little to do with the overall story, some pretty kick ass effects, and of course giant robots. Now if someone could convince Bay to use a damn tripod and mix up his editing with a wide shot or two so we can take in the massiveness of a fight, the sequel would rock. I gave the film 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
