michael bay says transformers 2 was failure and hes done after 3

This is impressive, Michael. Makes us feel MUCH better about the new astronaut Transformers movie.

During an interview, Michael Bay admitted that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen failed in certain ways. Here's what he had to say about it:

"We tried to learn from the second movie. On the second movie we got burned. We had a writers strike, we had to agree on a story in three weeks, and then we knew they were going on strike. It was a f***ed scenario all the way around; it wasn't fair to the writer; it wasn't fair to me; it wasn't fair to anybody. It was still an entertaining movie, but I think we failed on certain aspects. What we did with this movie is I think we have a much better script, and we got back to basics. … It's more serious. I got rid of the dorky comedy; I mean we've got two little characters, that's it, but the dorkiness is not there. Dork-free Transformers. It's much more serious. It's still entertaining; it's big looking."

And here's Michael on the future of the Transformers franchise:

"I think this has gotta be it. I think someone else will take the torch from here. … It's just that I don't think you could do it again with Shia [LaBeouf] and everybody, I think it's time to move on."

All sounds good to us, Michael! We think you're making the right moves.

    i think hes being brutally honest which is refreshing as for the dorkiness aspects alot of movies hAVE THAT now sandra bullock plays the dork well but she overdid it in the proposal flicking from serious b to total dork in one movie then totally outdorking herself in all about steve which then bombed (althou i liked it so i bought a copy) there shouldnt be ANY dorkiness in a movie like transformers at all hes right about that..

    why do people keep saying the 2nd transformers movie was bad… i didn't think it was bad at all…sure it wasn't as good as the last one but it def. was not a failure.

    They are NOT bad movies, it's just one of those franchises people like to hate on, similarly to Pirates of the Caribbean. They make fun of it until they go see the movie and enjoy it weather they admit it or not. Perez is guilty of doing this, too. He used to make fun of the Pirates movies, and say they were awful and they shouldn't do this stranger tides thing. But recently he's said he's excited and can't wait to see it. Also they said they were done with Pirates after the 3rd and yet here we are a few years hiatus and there's a new one coming. I foresee the same thing happening with Transformers. Maybe it's just not the "right fit" for Michael Bay but there's tons of directors and producers who would kill for a chance on this franchise and probably will get it one day. Watch.
