The king of all things boom and CG destruction is taking over the big screen again this weekend with his latest directorial endeavor, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The movie covers the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya while putting the focus on six elite ex-military operators who are tasked with defending the outpost.
So maybe Michael Bay doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes to critics, but the guy does know how to churn out box office hits and even a few beloved classics. With 13 Hours making its way into theaters on January 15th, we thought it’d be the perfect time to rank all of the films he directed. Similar to our 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2016 list, each staff member created his or her own personal ranking, we assigned a numeric value to each position and then compiled the results to come out with this end result. Find out where Armageddon, Bad Boys, Pearl Harbor and all the Transformers movies fell in the video below.
Here’s the official synopsis for 13 Hours:
From director Michael Bay, “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” is the gripping true story of six elite ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA who fought back against overwhelming odds when terrorists attacked a U.S. diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012.
