Michael Bay gets a lot of flack these days for the Transfomers films, but I remain a fan of his when he finds the right types of films for his over-the-top machismo characters and unparalleled eye for action. The Rock, one of his earlier offerings is one of these films, and now, artist Patrick Connan is giving it the poster tribute it deserves. It’s amazing to see how many details Connan’s managed to capture in this piece without making it feel crowded or heavy – it literally leads us through the film’s best moments. The way I see it, Connan’s hit the mark with precision and has again set the bar incredibly high for his peers.
