China’s occupation of downtown Detroit ends as ‘Transformers 4’ cleaned up

After the filming of ‘Transformers 4,’ sections of downtown looked like they were bombed out. Chinese banners hung from skyscrapers; a bus was overturned; and shelters made of bamboo were torn apart.

It was surreal, indeed.

Grand Circus Park, where most of the action was, attracted thousands of people to catch a glimpse of the action.

Here’s the aftermath.
