Proof That Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Recycles Footage From The Island
The Island does a lot of things wrong, but one of the things it did right was a pretty spectacular freeway chase sequence involving massive car crashes and bouncing debris.

Proponents of 3D desperately need people to go see Transformers: Dark of the Moon in the third dimension.
