Top Ten Movies Directed by Michael Bay


The Top Ten

1 Transformers

The trailers looked cool. The voices were incredible. The action is out of this world...but the rest is absolute (bleep). There's too many things going boom, even for a Michael Bay movie, and an excess of slow-motions, Transformer transformations that last for over ten minutes, and there's too much property damage to make this movie believable. The worst part is that, even versus the female characters in the other movies, the fact that Mikhaela Banes is only there to get teenage boys' motor running. Her character has very little personality that will be remembered, and the camera lingers over her hourglass figure, her tanned and pumped-up legs, her award-winning rear of the year, and her huge breasts that bulge across the T.V. screen. It's still a cool movie, I suppose, but there's too much gratuitous content that has no substance involved.

This is where Megan Fox became the breakout starlet in the first Transformers movie and that was just a beginning of a new era in 2007. This is the only Transformers movie that I like the most, even when Michael Bay started to show lack of action in the other Transformers movies.

This movie is a courageous attempt at reinvigorating the Transformers canon, but it is over ten years long, is virtually plotless, is visually incomprehensible at best, and focuses way too much on Megan Fox's enormous rack and gratuitously slim bum. That being said, the action sequences, and the performance of Hugo Weaving and Shia LaBoef are highlightable aspects of this film

The only truly good film in the franchise so far

2 The Rock

The only good Michael Bay Movie.

The highest rated movie by Michael bay, smart (for Bay) and enjoyable action. Certainly some of these other movies are good, but I have no idea how they beat out the rock.

For once, bay made a good movie, but everything still went boom. Seriously, what is it with bay and explosions? Someone lights a cigarette, there's bound to be a dozen sparks. A boom every now and then is okay, but with this guy its every 20 seconds!

This is definitely the best film Michael Bay has ever directed. Awesome action scenes, an epic score by Hans Zimmer, and great chemistry between Nicholas Cage and Sean Connery. Overall, this is one film that you don't wanna miss out on.

4 Pearl Harbor

This is one of the worst movies ever made.

One of the most beautiful films ever, truly epic, though it is tragic it has elements that make it worth watching, terrific job and yet again one of the most unique films ever made about World War Two.

My favorite movie and it's 2014! Love this! Should be up in the top two!

Up there in the top 2 with Armageddon - MatrixGuy

5 Bad Boys

The Lawrence-Smith pair in great form in a superb action-comedy - MatrixGuy

6 Transformers: Dark of the Moon

This is where the franchise should've stopped before Michael Bay decided to turn it into a contest of milking the cash.

I think it was the best Tranformers movie directed by Bay. It had drama, betrayal, aliens killing people and not just exploding cars and buildings, badass Prime scene and Shockwave!

Actually are my favorite transformers movie and my second favorite movie (the last of the hobbit wins)

Quite good just in general. Also I live in a large suburb where 10 seconds of this movie is in.

7 Bad Boys II
8 The Island

I find his story lines usually suck. He's all about the eye candy and the action. Which sells tickets. I like the plot to the Island. Out of the norm for him. - VADERtheIMPALER

only three good movies on the list, and this is the best of them. - beasthound

Son seul est unique bon film

9 Pain and Gain

Awesome movie... You'll know once you watch it.

10 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

He didn't even direct TMNT...

2 Things
1. The Picture Shows The Wrong One From 1991, It Should Show The One From 2014
2. He Didn't Exactly Direct The 2014, He Produced It, But Not Direct It - VideoGamefan5

The Contenders

11 Transformers: Age of Extinction

12 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Ive Seen 3- The Rock and Transformers. But this is way better them! - RichKid24

13 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

By far his best, I didn't know he directed it going in, was shocked to see his name in the credits. Highly underrated. A masterpiece

Best Movie from Michael bay.

Best movie he's made yet, by far, because he didn't have to make up a story, he just had to tell theirs.

Best Michael bay movie EVER
