Not only did it stink, even with Megan Fox on a motorcycle, but it may also be the biggest recipient of government subsidies in Hollywood history. The US military often provides personnel and equipment to filmmakers, free of charge, in exchange for implicit (or explicit) promises to depict the Armed Forces in a favorable light. Transformers 2 got more of these bennies than any previous film. The Army’s Hollywood liaison (yes, it has one) calls Transformers 2 “the largest joint-military movie ever made.” See David Bordwell’s blog for the gory details.
