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

Great Movie - VideoGamefan5

3 The Rock

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.

Actually is the highest rated Bay movie on rotten tomatoes

4 Pearl Harbor

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.

Up there in the top 2 with Armageddon - MatrixGuy

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

7 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

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

This is platz 2

This was the most entertaining Transformers movie.

Ok when I was like 8 years old I saw the first transformers movie. what kid doesn't like to see giant robots punch each other. so as I got older,watching all the films and now I look at these films a little differently. I think Michael bay tries to hard to introduce more humor than action. so lets take a look at some bay you watch them,you begin to notice that a few of the scenes are reused in the other transformers revenge of the fallen when prime is fighting megatron, prime is just saying some pretty random stuff. and I quote' junkyard scrap waste of megaton '.pointmade. and this is not the only time they do it. megatron does it the most. next. I mentioned how bay focused on the humor more than action? well the humor is not even funny. its really just stupid. the only movie I actually liked his humor was in Armageddon. next megatron has been resurrected way to many times. if they keep making these films,he will have been resurrected more than shredder. transforms ...more

13 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

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

Should be ranked higher, excellent movie with solid cast. True American heroism without going too political. Only people who pay attention to politics will know who's to Blaim for 2011 attacks in Libya.

Great movie and idea to tell a true to life story! Thank you for exposing the truth in all it's horrors...:(:( the public needs to know what really happened and be informed!
