Signature techniques

Bay's films contain several common directorial and cinematographic trademarks. For example, there is often a 360-degree pan at some point in the movie, often with the character alone in some setting. Characters are very often framed in tight close ups just above the brow and above the chin. The camera is almost constantly in motion. All of his movies feature helicopters silhouetted in slow motion against a vivid sunset. Cinematographically, his films have a strong industrial feel to them, and Bay uses lots of greys and blues to emphasize this. There is also usually a high-octane car chase or some other vehicle chase in every movie as well as multiple explosions with high levels of destruction of cities, buildings and vehicles (especially cars). Transformers featured a scene depicting a building with Megatron dragging Optimus Prime through one side and out the other; this is very similar to the scene in Bad Boys II where a slow motion bullet breaks through glass bottles. Panning refers to the horizontal movement or rotation of a film or video camera, or the scanning of a subject horizontally on video or a display device. ...


His films also tend to feature very modern, high-end vehicles, such as the Solstice Prototype and the Hummer in The Rock and the Fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro in Transformers. He typically makes cameo appearances in many of his movies as well: for example, in Bad Boys II he plays a guy driving a small beat-up old car which Martin Lawrence attempts to borrow, a NASA scientist in Armageddon, and in Transformers he is the "disgusting" human that gets flicked away by Megatron. The Pontiac Solstice GXP was introduced at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show. ... Hummer is a brand of sport utility vehicles (SUVs) sold by General Motors, also known as GM. They are based on the military High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), or Humvee. ... General Motors discontinued the Chevrolet Camaro after the 2002 model year which had been in production since 1967. ...


Bay often cannibalizes his own films, so visual motifs are relayed from one movie to the other; Grace Stamper (Liv Tyler)'s appearance in the latter half of Armageddon is almost identical to Kate Beckinsale's character in the latter half of Pearl Harbor; the car-hurling freeway chase in Bad Boys 2 is very similar to the train wheel-hurling freeway chase of The Island, and the effect where Bay uses CGI to allow his camera's point-of-view to perform physically impossible 360 dolly maneuvers during gunfights is first done in Bad Boys 2 and then again in Transformers. In addition, all of his movies feature a chiselled brunette women, such as Tea Leoni in Bad Boys, Steve Buscemi's wife in The Island and Megan Fox in Transformers.

Criticism

Critics have attacked Bay for a brash, shaky quick-cut editorial and directing style that many feel emphasizes superficial dramatization and pointless action. [3] Bay is often criticized for directing films that lack character development and progression, thus making his films more of an eye candy appeal.


Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park spoofed the work of Bay. Bay is the focus of the song "The End of an Act" from the Team America: World Police soundtrack, which criticizes the film Pearl Harbor as one of the worst films ever produced. The song opens with "I miss you more than Michael Bay missed the mark when he made Pearl Harbor" and contains the line "Why does Michael Bay get to keep on making movies?" In the fifth season South Park episode "Cartmanland", Kyle says, "Job has all his children killed, and Michael Bay gets to keep making movies. There isn't a God." In Season 11, Episode 10 "Imaginationland", Michael Bay is brought in by a group of G-Men to come up with an idea to stop terrorists, however he fails to comprehend the difference between original ideas and special effects.
