Top 10 Michael Bay Movie Cliches

SomePersonYouHate
Cliches that often repeat themselves a lot in several of his films. I'm only including cliches that happen in Michael Bay's films specifically not films in general.

The Top Ten

1 The main protagonist always whines when something goes wrong and ends up being the most unlikable person in the entire movie

Take Sam from Transformers for example: Whenever something bad happens he whines like a typical emo kid who's so unlikable that you want the villians to win! - SomePersonYouHate

2 Ending on a cliffhanger to rely on future sequels

Done nearly to death in his films once you've seen one of them you've seen all of them. - SomePersonYouHate

3 Too many close shots happening all at once to distract you

Mostly for the "fights" in Michael Bay movies. - SomePersonYouHate

4 A random explosion that happens for no reason

Nearly every movie he's ever made to be honest. - SomePersonYouHate

This should be number 1. - egnomac

Car drives into tree lightly. 5 seconds later... explodes into a huge gulp of fire!

5 The main protagonist gives up half way through the movie

Honestly this cliche repeats itself just as often as the other cliches on the list. - SomePersonYouHate

6 When a fight occurs a song from a 2000s Rock band like Linkin Park will play

Yeah... this cliche explains itself. - SomePersonYouHate

7 A character that sacrifices themselves to stop the threat towards the end of the movie

One of his most common cliches. - SomePersonYouHate

8 A stubborn main protagonist that doesn't help until the movie's almost over

A very overused cliche I'll add. - SomePersonYouHate

9 Filler fanservice that doesn't add  to the plot and is only there to fill in the run time Filler fanservice that doesn't add  to the plot and is only there to fill in the run time

Transformers, and the TMNT movies are guilty of this cliche the most. - SomePersonYouHate

10 A threat attacks a city and nearly destroys it and needs to be stopped A threat attacks a city and nearly destroys it and needs to be stopped

Every Transformer movie ever made. - SomePersonYouHate

The Contenders

11 The constant use of cheesy and cringe worthy one liners

€�There is more to humanity than meets the eye. I am Optimus prime and I send this message”

12 Females are more eye candy then actual characters important to the plot.

Megan Fox cough cough
