Then I could care less about a sequel to TRANSFORMERS.
Per Michael Bay:
“'Transformers 2', well that's another story. Itching to work pre-strike (June) so I might jump ship and come back a year or so later cause people at the studio have been dragging for two months. Not sure why. I'll keep you informed.”
Basically the ONLY reason why the first TRANSFORMERS was as amazing as it was was beacause of Michael Bay and his attention to detail. There is no other director, with the possible exception of Spielberg (who was exec-producer on the first film), who would have made all the robots and the battle scenes as believeable and realistic as they were. These types of movies aren't Shakespeare, but they require filmmakers of enormous visual and technical talent to pull off correctly. Spare us a summer movie season with TRANSFORMERS 2: A film by Brett Ratner.
