Transformers: Age of Extinction - Mark Wahlberg (2014) - Quarry Bay Part 2 - Quarry Bay Street, Quarry Bay

The film makers made good use of Quarry Bay and there are several distinct locations we will see over the next few posts. Here is a brief look down a side alleyway off Quarry Bay Street, in fact immediately behind the central rear section of the main building.

The interesting thing to note here is that this small alley has a staircase immediately behind where the camera is sited. This means the stunt rider either had to slam on the brakes quite hard or they constructed a ramp for then to drive up so they could film them travelling past at speed.

Either way, the Google car couldn't drive down here and so I had to go myself and the result can be seen below.

Interestingly, the building seen behind the bike is the Quarry Bay Market and Cooked Food Centre which is part of the Quarry Bay Municipal Services building. We've seen it before on this blog many moons ago from an episode of Yellowthread Street called Angel Eyes. At that time though it was still under the auspices of the now defunct Urban Council and was called the 'Quarry Bay Complex'.
