This video has been making the rounds lately, and we held off for a little bit, trying to debate whether or not this is newsworthy. But is Friday after all, and this video is evidence that while Transformers Dark of the Moon Director Michael Bay did reuse some highway chase scenes that included a Dodge Magnum getting ripped in half from his 2005 film The Island, is really shows what some clever editing and work from the always fantastic Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) can really do for a scene that fit into the context of the film regardless.

I don't see a problem, as long as he's using his own footage. And it is very well integrated - if you hadn't seen both movies or the comparison clips, you'd never know. It's far better than Toho's footage reuse in the 70s Godzilla movies where the suits didn't even match.

In one respect, you can look at it as a cost-cutting measure

 

On the other hand, it just shows how unimaginative he really is :shrug

Yo anybody know how to get a hold of Mr. Bay. He owes me a but load of cash. Did any of you spot the Twins. Well he may have reused some scenes from The Island, but didn't completely edit the Twins out. So if someone at Tfromers can please contact me so I can show you where. If he pays up or not I don't really care but I do want him to eat his words and in front of all the world.

wow that explains a lot. When I was watching these scenes in the film for some reason I was underwhelmed and felt I have seen all of this before. I look forward to the freeway battles between the bots but this one lost the shock and "WOW" of the battle in the first transformer film.

It's neat how it was reused. I think it was Gremlins 2 that uses footage from Superman, the opening airial shot of NY.

 

Eh, saves some budget I guess.

 

I saw the twins too, clear as day. Wait, what was the reward? How much did they pay the editor? Cuz I'm sure he saw it.
