After twice viewing I realized its a Nickelodeon movie…my boy and I went into it the first time ready to rip it apart lol
for what its worth as a kids movie, its not bad at all. The characters still a little magoo but it did its job. If u a die hard from 1990 then continue to read on.
Going to be brief. Been a while since I been on here. Been really busy with life in general. But as a guy who grew up on the raw TMNT movie that dropped in 1990, these previews where KILLING ME!
Now with all movies that are recreated 10-15+ years later, they want to retell a story that’s already been told, add CGI and they think itll be better.
The fact that Michael Bay produced it and it def has his touch all over it, I think that saved the movie in some areas, but surely didn’t hurt the movie. People talk about how Bay’s influence on Transformers fucked up the movies…..eaahhhh nah. I grew up on them too and I disagree.
Characters. Turtles: All didn’t hold a candle to 1990. Only one that was somewhat true to the original was Raphael. Donnie was a fuckin pussy lol….well Leo was close to true also. Mikey was extra lame and not funny most of the time. I spent a lot of time shaking my head to most of what was coming out their mouths.
Splinter: OMG they dropped the ball on him 10000 times. Voice, visual, overall….smh
Shreader: …..I guess
KC Jones “Type” guy: Im disappointed they even attempted to have a KC “type” in there. Don’t want to disrespect the true Bad Ass KC
April: Megan Fox was iight, no complaints.
The story had SO MANY HOLES IN IT. Lol I mean….smh
I give it 70/30 rating. It wasn’t all bad. Bay’s touch saved a lot of scenes and made scenes look really good especially on the tower. I did laugh a bit. The look of the turtles grew on me cause I was 100% against the movie at first sign of it being made just off their design alone.
If you haven’t seen it and you just want to see a movie, go ahead. If your die hard TMNT Fan, go see it still just to compare. If you have kids and they don’t know nada about TMNT then don’t deprive them any longer in life, and after make them watch the 1990 movie and part II but part III is optional lol
