This weekend, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon dominated the box office. However, a few fans of the Michael Bay film couldn’t help but notice that some of the footage may have been recycled. Bay directed and produced the 2005, The Island which starred Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson and it appears as though some of the footage used in the film may have found it’s way into the latest film in the Transformers trilogy.

One of the most recognizable action sequences from the film is when Lincoln Six Echo and Jordan Two Delta escape from the compound and all of that crazy stuff happens on the freeway. Thanks to the power of YouTube and video editing, someone has posted a video comparing the two action sequences. While some shots within the sequence are different, there is no doubt that some of the shots are exactly the same. Do you think it was a copout or a way to keep costs low in post-production. Watch the video below and sound off in the comments.
