Every now and then a movie comes along with some old hash of retro mixed in with the new school tricks. This movie is a clear example of the fun you have when you check your brain at the door. It's a movie about ninja turtles based on a cartoon, based on a toy line, based on...well you get the idea. So if you're expecting Oscar winning performances, look else where, but if you're looking to have some fun at the movies this August, it's not a bad way to spend 100minutes. In 1990, I thought Jim Henson's muppet company did a fantastic job bringing the cartoon turtles to life. This around the budget is bigger, the effects better, and the action is top notch fun! Personally, I'm no fan of Michael Bay, but he managed to capture some originality in the Turtles franchise. Much like the fun of the first 2007 Transformers movie, there's decent character development for a huge summer movie like Ninja Turtles.
