Michael Bay began his career by directing music videos for well-known pop stars. In fact, his first directorial effort was a music video for Vanilla Ice. From such humble beginnings, Bay has gone on to direct the billion dollar Transformers series of movies, which is one of the biggest and most profitable film franchises in history. Along the way, Bay directed several other successful movies that have attracted audiences at the box office but polarized critics. This June, Bay’s fifth Transformer movie (subtitled The Last Knight) will hit theaters. And while he insists this will be his last movie about the Autobots and Decepticons, he has said as much before. We can’t help but think that if this next movie is profitable (which is almost certainly will be), there will be more Transformers films to come. Here are all of the movies directed by Michael Bay, ranked.
10. Bad Boys II (2003)
We’ve got to start off with a sequel here, as Bad Boys II is, without a doubt, the worst movie that Michael Bay has ever directed. While the original Bad Boys from 1995 was a fresh take on the buddy cop movie genre, the sequel released eight years later begs one question: Why? It was totally unnecessary and came at a time when nobody was begging for a sequel to the original. Plus the same chemistry and banter between stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence that seemed funny and fresh in the first film just seems tired and exhausted in this second outing. With a weak plot involving illegal ecstasy flowing into Florida and Smith and Lawrence’s efforts to stop it, this movie is basically an excuse for Bay to do what he does best – smash cars on freeways and blow things up. Not a movie worth paying to see.http://fergoo.com/bad-boys-2/ Via Fergoo.com
