Flames. Renegades. A defiant white guy. Another, angrier white guy. Explosions. Like, a lot, a lot of explosions. Linkin Park! This is Disney and Pixar’s Up — but not as you’ve ever seen it before. This is the Michael Bay version of the heartstring-tugging story, folks, and let us tell you: there’s nary a heartstring that will be pulled by this one (unless you tear up at the sight of an epic explosion, in which case: you’re very much in luck!).
YouTube user Mr. Stratman7 (no known relation to Mr. Stratman6 – 0) edited the happy go lucky children’s film to embody the Bay-ian pathos. Explosions — not just adventures — are out there, folks. Lots and lots of blowing up business. Because what else, right? The time to take back what is yours by right (by doing whatever it takes) is now!
You should be warned, though: the ending is a bit of a shocker. (We’ll let you watch before we discuss.)
Yes, that’s right: in Michael Bay’s iteration of the tale, young Ellie explodes at her wedding. Which, honestly, in the Michael Bayiverse really does make the most sense (that’s what happened to Megan Fox in Transformers, right?). After all she was probably just so excited about the prospect of a life on the run from The Man with her hulking hero by her side that she just spontaneously combust on the spot. Life is cruel to the man at the heart of any Michael Bay production, my friends.
