Transformers Dark of the Moon chase scene plus recycled footage from 2005 Island movie. Ok, read the description, rate and commet. I really want to know what you think about this stuff.
Video suggests director may have rejigged clips from his 2005 movie The Island into two action scenes in Dark of the Moon Some might say that when you've seen one Michael Bay movie, you've seen them all. Now it's emerged that viewers who recently paid to see the US director's latest blast-fest, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, may actually have been watching rejigged footage from his earlier movie The Island during key scenes. One of the segments in question is almost identical to a section of The Island, except that an enormous Transformer robot has been apparently superimposed on to the action via digital tinkering.
It's not the first time Bay has been accused of borrowing footage from earlier films. In the first Transformers movie, he reportedly purloined a shot of an aircraft carrier from his 2001 film Pearl Harbor. However, Transformers 3 was released amid a wave of hype over the fact it was shot in 3D, rather than being converted in post-production. Experts suggest the recycled scenes could not have been filmed in 3D, so must have been through a conversion process before they were inserted into the final film.
According to IGN, Bay and his team have explained away the use of the recycled footage as the result of an accident on set in which a tow-cable snapped, hitting film extra Gabriella Cedillo and resulting in a serious head injury, leaving her paralysed. In October, it was reported that Cedillo was suing Transformers producers over the incident, which resulted in her being airlifted to hospital via helicopter.
