Arguably the most divisive filmmaker in Hollywood at the moment, Michael Bay has indisputably overseen some of the most successful movies in recent years, with his box-office receipts totaling $5 billion worldwide. Renowned for his big-budget efforts that are populated with fast editing, stylized visuals, and an over-abundance of special effects, Bay has directed 11 films during his career. Bay made his debut with 1995’s Bad Boys, which helped to turn Will Smith into a Hollywood star, and he followed this up with The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, and Bad Boys 2. But it’s his work on the four Transformers films that have taken up his most recent time, each of which has continued Bay’s tremendous box-office success.
