We continue to have mixed feelings about Michael Bay’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles flick, so here’s a boatload of footage that might help us all get off the fence.

Produced by Bay (Transformers) and directed by his pal Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans), the new Ninja Turtles flick has gotten a bad rap for all the reported alien shenanigans and the fact that all the initial footage looked essentially like Transformers, just with Ninja Turtles.

Well, a lengthy new behind-the-scenes clip has been released digging into the production, looking at everything from the effects to the cast. What do we learn? Despite the inherent darkness in the initial trailers, the film might actually be a little bit fun — which is a nice nod to the Turtles of yore. Oh, there's also a lot of Megan Fox. So, yeah, your mileage may vary.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens Aug. 8, 2014.
