I go to IGN for my news on games, movies and so on and for a long while I've had the displeasure of skimming the comments section when there were articles about Ninja Turtles. The comments quickly become typical Bay hate that by now has become incredibly thoughtless and "hive-mind" in nature. We all agree that Revenge of the Fallen wasn't the greatest which is true. People say that the 3 films don't have a plot which is not true. People also say that the writers suck but then I say that "you may think that they do but you're probably going to watch Star Trek". The typical thing a typical Bay Hater says is for example: explosion, explosion, explosions, ass, humping robots, racist joke. I read these over and over again. The funny thing is that these are examples of what was wrong with ROTF not what was wrong with all the other films Bay has done in the past such as Bad Boys, Armageddon and so on. Many people also seem to forget that they went to see an action movie and many times action movies have basic plots and the forte is the action. I assumed this was obvious. And even if DOTM had a simple plot and even if the acting in some areas wasn't the best, the action was great. Few Transformers episodes have amazing plots and even the Avengers didn't have the best plot yet it got praised by fans for seeming "just like the show". I'm not saying that some of Bay's choices were tasteful e.g. Devastator's wrecking balls, but I also think that fans are blowing things out of proportion and unless they're going out to watch a comedy it's seemingly impossible to just go to the cinema and have a good time. Not to mention that Bay is getting flak about Ninja Turtles even though time after time I tell them that he's not even directing the film.
