In this reboot of the 1990’s classic TV show, we watch as up and coming reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox, Transformers series) discovers that there are four mutant turtles that are acting as vigilantes for New York City. She quickly learns that the turtles are the same ones that she grew up loving and will do anything to protect them from the evil Shredder (Tohoru Masamune) and his Foot Clan.
Going into this movie, a lot of the fans of the TV show were nervous about how it would come out. But you can put your mind at ease. It’s not as bad as you think it would be. While it’s not that blockbuster film that Transformers had when they announced it’s reboot, it certainly worth the watch, especially if you loved the show. The movie touches on what made us fall in love with these four turtles and even makes references that a true fan would appreciate.
Michael Bay once again proves why he’s the master at making action films as the action sequences on the screen were epic. The 3D effects added to the scenes and made it actually worth that extra few dollars for that ability. The CGI on the turtles were not as bad as the trailer made it look and you get used to their appearance after a few minutes of them on the screen.
Now of course this movie is far from perfect. It has it’s flaws like the story line was predictable and the acting was sub-par but that’s not the point of a movie like this. You are supposed to enjoy this movie and it certainly conquers that goals. It’s funny, heart, and a good message that would make this the perfect movie for the family to see.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Megan Fox, David Fitchner, Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Danny Woodburn, and Tohoru Masamune and is rated PG.
