    I still don't see the problem with this. Unless the studio or Steven himself clearly stated Bay was not to use any sort of stock footage in this movie, I fail to see the relevance.

    Ummmm if you own the footage, and see a need for the exact same scene, why the hell go through all the time and money to re-shoot it? That is kind of stupid if you ask me. Car manufacturer do the exact same thing. They re-use the same chassie across different manufactures why? Because re-doing the same damn thing is stupid when you can save money and get someone else to manufacture them en-mass and save money.

    Yeah, I see it as a smart way to keep costs down and save time. Not sure why everyone's making a big deal out of it?

    Seriously, I don't mind either as long as the "final product" delivers.

    Having never seen any other Bay movie, I can safely say its not gonna bother me in the least.
    Check out Godzilla's Revenge, thats like 80% Stock Footage, and I still watched it, I didnt like it, but I still watched it.
