Michael Bay admits some flaws in “Transformers 2,” but seems to miss what those were

We tried to learn from the second movie. On the second movie we got burned. We had a writers strike, we had to agree on a story in three weeks, and then we knew they were going on strike… It was still an entertaining movie, but I think we failed on certain aspects…. So I’m excited about this movie. It’s more serious. I got rid of the dorky comedy, I mean we’ve got two little characters, that’s it, but the dorkiness is not there. Dork-free Transformers. It’s much more serious.

— Just so you know, Michael Bay thinks the problem with the second “Transformers” movie was the “dorky comedy.” Not the racism (which is what I think he means), not the plotting, not the characterization, not the incomprehensible action sequences, not the bewildering story, not the Robot Heaven and certainly not a belief that explosions and noise outweigh sensible, explicable storytelling. Also, his movie about giant robot aliens disguised as cars will be “dork-free.”
