Michael Bay is synonymous with making spectacular, blockbuster VFX films. From Bad Boys to Transformers, he is Hollywood's king of explosions. The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer is vintage Bay. Though the film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Bay's style is clearly evident. From the sweeping shots of the New York City skyline to the quick edits of the turtles fight with The Foot Clan, there's no doubt this film will be action packed.
2 Intense Action on the Subway and in the Snow
Bay does not go soft on action. Every film, whether as director or producer, is wall to wall with intense action scenes. The turtles face real conflict and distress. The trailer shows the turtles in all out deadly combat; grittier, darker, more realistic than the animated series. It's fantastic to see a harder edge in the fight scenes. The glimpses of the subway fight and the turtles facing The Foot Clan in the snow look first rate.
