I think this is something we'll have to get past, because we're going to see it more and more. This movie was the cover story of EW Magazine last week, and this point was mentioned to Bay. He frankly didn't give a shit. GM paid a little over $3 million to have those 4 GM vehicles featured. PLUS they donated the 2009 Camaro. Remember there were only like 8 of those in existence, as it was still a "concept".
The movie budget was $150 million. $3 million gave them substantial flexibility.
Not a big deal for me to see the GM vehicles.
That was more of a general statement by me, than a complaint, regarding the cars. It is clear that we will be paying to see advertisements in all aspects of our entertainment, be it movies, video games, w/e. I reluctantly accept that fact. The movie was packed with all sorts of advertising, some subtle, others, not so much.
My main complaint about the show was how poorly written and executed the story was. My complaints basically mirror what metaldevil has outlined above, so I wont rehash them.
