According to comicbookmovie it has been reported that transformers 4 may not have many human characters in it, but it will be a direct sequel to dark of the moon

I hope they have a scene where we see Optimus sweeping up the remains of Ironhide while muttering to himself that humans can't be trusted, before executing some more prisoners.

haha! I do wonder if they'll address Optimus and his severe bi-polar disorder. I mean looking at two lines he has in the third movie...

"Remember this: you may lose you faith in us but never in yourselves."

"YOU DIE NOW!!!"

Woah. Talk about having a mental turn.

Perhaps this thread should more accurately be titled '' Bay will commit Transformers 4 ''.

I know, who would like movies with rubbish scripts, annoying characters and a reliance on CG to try please an audience?...

Doing a reboot of Transformers is just stupid. Can't Hollywood just think of some original ideas? Surely four films is going too far? I'd rather they just left it at Transformers 3.

Fun, fun, fun. More pointless explosions and more disregard for any storytelling...

This is how Mark Kermode woke up in the morning and found out about Bay being confirmed for Transformers 4

I have no inherent bias against explosive large scale action, but like you, it's the fact the action in these films is nigh on incomprehensible and unceasingly fails to engage me on any emotional level that I find most troubling. The robots in motion are a jumbled collection of little fiddly bits, and in combat I'm unable to tell one from the next. In the end none of it matters though, because I simply do not care about whatever it is that may be happening on screen.

I think Bay has some level of technical skill, but his filmmaking has for me come to represent the nadir of modern cinema. It's too bad too, because I'll freely admit that THE ROCK and ARMAGEDDON are on the whole thoroughly enjoyable entertainments that pulled me into the story through solid character work, even if the drama was told in broad strokes with a healthy dash of cliche.

I often wonder if Jerry Bruckheimer had something to do with that. I mean when teamed with Jerry, we had The Rock, Armageddon, Bad Boys etc which were incredible action films with enjoyable stories and likeable characters.

As soon as Bay went off from Bruckheimer's producing talent, we had The Island and Transformers.

Directors need a Producer that's not afraid to say "That's a stupid idea." or "Do it again.". One to take charge.

Perfect example being with Bay and Lucas. When first filming Star Wars Lucas had producers shooting down his bad ideas. When he made the prequels everyone was scared to tell him his incredible ideas were actually horrible.

Yeah.  What the fuck was with Prime in 3?!  They made him an absolute psycho.  Shotgunning the face off an old friend without a second thought?  and the scene where the Autobots, yank a Decepticon Pilot out of his downed ship and pull him apart limb from limb, then have the cheek to see the Decepticons taking prisoners and get offended!

It's a good job I, as a 31 year old fully grown man, was there to leap up and shout out "Prime wouldn't do that!"  Otherwise other people in the cinema might have thought it was alright!
