Everyone on the TMS staff noticed more than a few plot holes in The Force Awakens. We want to say up front: this is totally fine.
In a rare moment of humility, Michael Bay
admitted that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
might have been a bit of a suckfest. Bay-style modesty only goes so far, though, as the director claimed he was only partially
responsible. In an interview with USA Today published yesterday
, Bay said, "I'll take some of the criticism. It was very hard to put (the sequel) together that quickly after the writers' strike (of 2007-08)." Amusingly, he was quoted as calling The Fallen, the villain from the second film, a "kind of a (expletive) character." We're left to wonder what magical word he used.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura
echoed these thoughts about the rushed production, which he said caused the bungled plot: "We tried to do too many things in the second movie, which didn't give enough time in any one of them. We were constantly jumping to the next piece of information, the next place."
So what should we expect from the third film, which has already received much eyebrow-raising with Megan Fox
's exile and the introduction of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
