"Those blazing wheels and several nods to Joseph Campbell suggest there there is more going on in '13 Hours' than in the usual Michael Bay conflagration. The king of screen chaos, he is best known for the 'Transformers' series, with its battling robots. He makes big, bludgeoning movies stuffed nonsense, special effects and military fetishism, and while they are ridiculous they can be absurdly entertaining when they're not boring you out of your mind. A maximalist to the max, he has no interest in artistic niceties like nuance, scale and pacing, but he does know how to blow stuff up. What makes his commitment to mayhem somewhat interesting is that it's never clear if this aesthetic of bombast originates from self-parody, a lack of self-awareness or maybe both."
Peace out. Happy Monday.
