Updated: Dec 11, 2020


Age: 55

Birthday: 17th February


Michael Bay is an American film director and producer. He is best known for making big-budget, high-concept action films characterized by fast cutting, stylistic visuals and extensive use of special effects, including frequent depictions of explosions. The films he has produced and directed, which include Pearl Harbor (2001) and the Transformers film series (2007–present), have grossed over US $7.8 billion worldwide, making him one of the most commercially successful directors in history.






Despite his commercial success at the box office, Bay's work is generally held in low esteem by film critics. While Transformers (2007) received moderately positive reviews, his other films, including the four Transformers sequels, have been received negatively by critics.
