Michael Bay’s movies have always rubbed against the grain of left-wing Hollywood. On top of being massively successful, Bay’s love of country and most especially the American military is a subtle and not-so-subtle theme that runs through many of his blockbusters.
It doesn’t look as though the Shia LaBeouf-less “Transformers 4” is any different. There’s a wonderful line about messing with Texas and after six I lost count of the number of shots of the Stars and Stripes found in this short trailer.
Imagine Hollywood aiming a film at a demographic known as the Heartland of America — making the hero of the film someone from one of the most populous states in the country.
What a concept.
P.S. I officially forgive Mark Wahlberg fro making the left-wing piece of crap “Shooter.” We’re good now. Let’s just let it go.
