If filmmaker Michael Bay — known for the Transformers and other over-the-top films — were to decide to make a World War I movie, and if he chose to rely on comic books as his research materials, the result would be very much like Electronic Arts’ newly released video game Battlefield 1. This latest entry in the popular series — somewhat confusing given the “1” in its moniker — moves the action from recent modern settings to the Great War, taking the action back in time 100 years, highlighting lumbering tanks and biplanes.
