Michael Bay cannot be stopped. Though the filmmaker has hinted Transformers: The Last Knight "might" be his final Transformers film as director, he surely isn't done calling "Action!"
To date, Bay's feature films have grossed $2.2 billion domestically, a staggering number that makes him Hollywood's second-most-commercially successful director of all time.
But Bay has been derided by critics, who have taken his films to task for bombast. A survey shows Bay's average Metascore as a director is a weak, yellow-bordering-on-red 44.7. (His overall average career Metascore, including his credits as producer, is even lower: 42.)
Here's a film-by-film look at Bay's work as a director, from his most critically loathed work to the surprising entry that won over most reviewers.
