Michael Bay Causes Chicago Inconvenience for Our Pleasure

When I say our pleasure, I mean the pleasure of those who were blinded by the fact that the second Transformers film blew chunks. But it seems like Michael Bay might be listening to the fans. An article by the Chicago Sun Times mentions the finale of the third movie, and this is what Michael Bay had to say about the shooting in Chicago:

The Chicago shooting ”is at the very end of the movie and the city is under alien attack, so it’s very critical and important to the film’s climax.”

At the end of the first movie, the climactic battle ended up in an unnamed city that resembles Los Angeles between the Autobots and Decepticons. Weird how at the beginning of the second movie, nobody seems to recall that battle. A battle that probably would have been noticed by the public. We’re talking about giant robots duking it out here. Let’s not forget how anticlimactic the second movie was, when the Fallen broadcasts his ugly mug to the whole world announcing world domination, but then decides to go to Egypt and get his ass kicked by Optimus. But judging from how Michael Bay describes the scene with Josh Duhamel and his unit, it seems like the Decepticons finally have what it takes to terrorize the whole world.

A scene shot in Michigan and Wabash focused on ”a number of base jumpers who are part of Josh Duhamel’s unit. The heroes in this movie have very few people coming to help them this time. I like to think of it as the ‘Black Hawk Down’ version of ‘Transformers’ — it’s much more intimate in terms of what’s happening.”

”Something very bad has happened to America — and this is at the very end of the movie.”

I still have hope. I still have hope. I still have hope.
