Transformers 3 Scenes Sample from Michael Bay's Film The Island

Director Michael Bay's Transformers 3 (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) just premiered last week on June 29 in United States. The film has earned $97.5 million during its first weekend, topping the weekend box office and setting a new Fourth of July box-office record.

However, some footage of Transformers 3 are found in Michael Bay's 2005 action film "The Island". YouTube user Cinefilo found this and made a short video comparing the similar scenes of the two films. The video was uploaded to YouTube on June 30 and has quickly become viral on the Internet. This is the video (download it with Leawo Free YouTube Downloader):

It's too obvious that Michael Bay has reused footage from The Island to Transformers 3. From the video, we can see that mainly two scenes of Dark of the Moon sample from The Island.

Scene 1: the truck (on the left) and the smashed car (on the right)

Scene 2: the rolling car and the smoke

Personally, I don't mind if Michael Bay samples a few scenes from his own film. Anyway, it's a good way to save time and money on filming a new scene. After all, Transformer: Dark of the Moon is a good film that has received generally negative reviews, which praising the film's excellent 3D visual effects.
