    While I love this and would buy tickets to it...it's clearly a gag.

    But a great one.

    I saw this the other day and loved it! The writer really captured Bay's style perfectly.

    That was hilarious. Reminds me of an 'Armageddon Script Meeting account' I read back when that movie came out. :D

    That is priceless. I would almost prefer this to the Nolan film. The little kid, the pointless jump cuts, "explosions inside explosions," with tanks flying out of them--vintage Bay.

    Yeah... I maybe should have actually read the link first before posting my ground-breaking comment. I was just commenting on an article I had read a litttle while ago. My bad.

    I would love you forever if you could just get me an animated avatar of the explosion within the explosion within the explosion with tanks flying out.

    Isn't that what Nolan did for Batman Begins, claiming that it was based on how you don't see Batman do stuff in the comics?

    The fight scenes were like:

    Batman punches
    [JUMPCUT]
    Ducard ducks
    [JUMPCUT]
    Batman steps forward
    [JUMPCUT]
    Ducard begins a sentence-
    [JUMPCUT]
