not everything needs to be played straight and for the film critics

not every war film needs to be the thin red line, there is a whole audience that would very much appreciate a less heavy film experience especially around this time of year

it's so easy to pick a film apart from it's many missed opportunities
while completely missing out on intent

bay caters to this audience while the critics and boarders hate him for not making it the way they wanted

Intentionally playing with the conventions of the genre and audience expectations, challenging the norms in order to create something new.
