Commentary Mania! (Pt.7)

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

                Michael Bay clearly enjoys making audio commentaries: he starts off, jabbers plenty, and loves to dish on the special effects and his own skills (thus lending him a narcissistic taint). The strong features of the commentary are the strong features in any audio commentary: he, and his guests, discuss the film with gusto. No moment of rest in this exchange. Stories are told of the difficulties in shooting, of pleasing the military and traveling around the world, and of random encounters with fans (how he bends over backwards to please his young-male audience). If you already know what a Michael Bay commentary track espouses then this will offer you no surprises but if you are new to his idea of verbal gouging then this would be worth your, and any Transformer fan’s, time.
