I have no doubt that Michael Bay haters will find new ways to hate on him once word spreads about his using footage from one of his older films in Transformers 3. Youtube user Cinefilo has a serious eye for detail and noticed some scenes that were not just familiar in Transformers Dark of the Moon but lifted from Michael Bays earlier action junkie film The Island.
Obviously if you have not seen Transformers 3 you might want to hold off watching the 1 minute comparison clip below but I can tell you I watched it and found it to contain no real spoilers. I think it is quite creative for Michael Bay to make use of his own footage rather than having to reshoot entirely new scenes when he doesn’t have to.
Michael Bay has brought new definition to using stock footage by using his own stock footage. Checkout the clip below which we have found via the fine folks at Slashfilm. Be sure to also checkout our detailed review of Transformers 3. As of writing this article the film has a 75% approval rating with our readers based on almost 1,000 fan votes so it would appear its obvious that Michael Bay has delivered a fun summer blockbuster worthy of his name.
