IMHO the only good action scenes from a Nolan movie are from the movie in my sig.

Comparing Nolan to Bay in anyway is just ridiculous though. Bay best movie is Nolan's worst film.

Flipping an 18 wheeler, jumping from the biggest skyscraper in Hong Kong, and destroying a full scale buiding is lame?

I honestly say **** the action in Transformers 2. I couldn't ****ing stomach it by the end.

Take for example the Twins fighting Devastator. It was totally ****ing pointless. They nearly get eaten and apparently beat up Devastator but none of the damage done to Devastator seems to really matter. And the Twins are really nowhere else to be found after that. They could've been cut from the movie. They were useless pointless characters and their action and fight scenes were useless as well.

TF is a useless franchise led by a useless (formerly decent) director, so what did you expect?

You might be onto something here. Kind of like the design on Superman: The Animated series. Metropolis definitely looked like a city of the future. I think the forward-thinking designs of Coruscant mixed with a little bit of the "used future" of Blade Runner to make it seem a tad more realistic. Either that, or just go film in New York or Sydney.

Should it be overstylized? No. Should it be stylized? Most definitely.
