Despite his considerable success at the international box office, Bay has received mixed to negative reviews for his work from film critics. While his films such as The Rock, The Island, Pain & Gain, and Transformers received mildly positive reviews by critics and audiences, his three sequels in the Transformers film series were panned by critics, as were Pearl Harbor, the Bad Boys films, and Armageddon.
Bay lives in Los Angeles and Miami with his two bullmastiffs, Bonecrusher and Grace, named for characters in Transformers and Armageddon, respectively. As a boy, he donated his Bar Mitzvah money to an animal shelter and often includes his bullmastiff dogs in his films. Bay previously had another dog, Mason, whose final appearance in a film was as Miles' dog in Transformers. Mason died during production of that film in March 2007.
