They Must Have Been Critics

Michael Bay (pictured) — whose movies appeal to audiences more than to reviewers — was injured on Thursday in an attack that took place on the set of “Transformers 4” in Hong Kong. Two local men, reportedly brothers, approached the director during the shooting of the film in a busy downtown area of Hong Kong Island. The younger brother demanded HK$100,000 ($12,900) from Bay, according to a police statement given to Reuters. An argument ensued, and the older brother walked up and struck Bay in the face, according to the report. The man then attempted to fight three police officers who sought to intervene. Both brothers were arrested on suspicion of blackmail and assault.
