From the Paper:

"Bay was a successful music video and commercial director when he was in his early twenties. His first feature film was 'Bad Boys', starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence produced in 1995. This action comedy showed some the characteristics that made him well-known as a video producer. It is fast paced and slick with a rapid momentum. One of the hallmarks of the shorter video direction is the terse and "hyper-edited" quality of the film; where the viewer is not given time to ponder or take in the scene at length but propelled into a never-ending sequence of actions and events. This was to be an aspect of Bay's style which was to elicit a certain amount of criticism of films like 'Armageddon'."
