Trademarks:Intense slow motion shots of characters Films often feature a US President giving a major speech before a major action is to be committed. Has the camera moving during most scenes Very rarely uses static shots (2001) His last 3 films all share: a) two male leads at odds with another; b) a cataclysmic event as the narrative's fulcrumic point; c) the film's lead female character has i) been a long-haired brunette, and ii) watched the film's climax from a control room Actors/characters in his films are almost uniformly shot in tight, emphatic close ups, framed under the hairline and above the chin. Often uses lightflashes (i.e. lightbulbs and cameraflashes) to enhance scenes. Often has over-the-top visuals (i.e. key events taking place at sunset or dramatic events taking place behind actors doing routine activities). Utilizes monotonic but intense musical cues during action-filled car chase scenes (Bad Boys II (2003), The Island (2005)). Uses shots of aircraft against a setting sun, especially helicopters (Armageddon (1998), Pearl Harbor (2001), Transformers (2007)). Often features a slow-motion shot of an object crashing into, or tumbling towards the camera. Use of shots where the camera spins in slow-motion in a circle around the characters. (Bad Boys, The Rock, Bad Boys II, Transformers) Frequently incorporates scenes that involve characters running or moving towards the camera (almost always shot in slow-motion) Big explosions, often in slow-motion, with people running away in the foreground. He occasionally makes cameo appearances in his films: in Bad Boys II (2003) he plays a guy driving a small beat-up old car which Martin Lawrence attempts to borrow, a NASA scientist in Armageddon (1998), and in Transformers (2007) he is the "disgusting" human that gets flicked away by Megatron. Has worked with producer Jerry Bruckheimer on all of his films, until The Island (2005). Is known for his high grossing action-packed movies. All of his movies have grossed more than $100 million, except Bad Boys (1995) and The Island (2005). Frenetic editing of action sequences Most of his films have a shot of pilots running toward their aircraft for takeoff. All his films have at least one shot of a man screaming in slow motion. Usually as a battle cry. Destruction of famous locations/landmarks; e.g. Alcatraz (The Rock), New York and Paris (Armageddon), Pearl Harbor (Pearl Harbor), The Pyramids (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen); Chicago (Transformers: Dark of the Moon). His films often feature two male leads who have arguments, trivial discussions or are constantly trying to one-up each other (Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Bad Boys II, Pain and Gain)
