Cowabunga, Shredder get back here and taste cold turtle steel!
17 August 2014 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

A lot of people give Michael Bay a lot of flack for practically everything he does. Actually, that's an understatement. People hate the guy. He's produced films with budgets in the 9-digit range, and usually those films are based upon a person's childhood superhero or cartoon, but whenever Bay makes a movie, he changes so many details, the people who see his films are disgusted. However, to say his films suck entirely would be a lie, as most of the stuff he's produced is very entertaining, and full of action fuelled by CGI and 3d effects. And sometimes the stuff he makes doesn't stray too far from it's source material. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is like that.

In this one, April O'Neil is after her big scoop for the Channel 6 News. While investigating why a bunch of new yorkers are rushing out of the subway, she comes upon a foot clan attack, and ends up being rescued by 4 mysterious vigilantes. After being rescued, she pursues them, and discovers that her rescuers, are none other than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

OK, I have 2 major negatives, giving this movie it's 8/10, and they're both in the casting department.

First, April O'Neil. The movie should've been called "The TMNT & April O'Neil" because a majority of the time, the camera was pointed at her. For the first 20 minutes, i was dying to see a turtle instead of her. I know Megan Fox has her admirers, but I really don't care much for her, and the role of April O'Neil should've gone to someone else...perhaps someone with red hair, maybe.

Second, Donatello & Leonardo. all 4 turtles were superb throughout the movie, But the casting for them was off. For Leonardo, Johnny Knoxville as the voice? No, not him. I love Knoxville when he's trying to kill himself in the name of comedy, but as Leonardo, Hell no. I would've preferred Cam Clarke (The Original Leonardo) or even Michael Sinterklaas (The 4kids Voice Actor) over Knoxville. Also, Donatello. I would've loved to hear Rob Paulsen Provide the voice for him over the unknown who did, because Paulsen is the greatest voice actor of all time, Hands down.

So whoever did casting for this movie, they're the ones who really, really suck.

Now, the Positives.

Michaelangelo is by far the best character, the one you will look forward to hearing and seeing in every scene. Just like the cartoons, Mikey is a joker, and almost every line he puts out will make you laugh.

Second, the action. it's everywhere and you will get your fill of it. Michael bay loves CGI and 3d and it's everywhere. The action slows down to take advantage of the 3D effects (Which might be Cliché for some) but it's definitely enjoyable.

Finally, to really appreciate the best part of this movie, you have to think back a few years when it was announced. The internet was extremely angry that Michael Bay wanted to make the Turtles Aliens instead of mutants. So the internet voiced their displeasure. And Mr. Bay listened. Guess what? The turtles are not aliens, they are mutants. Even April makes a reference to her friend asking if the turtles are aliens, to which she replies "No, that's stupid."

So to sum it up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a fun, full-length feature that everyone in the family can enjoy. There's almost no swearing, And the sexual innuendos are kept to a minimum. For a movie about our heroes in a half-shell, it's worth a view.

8/10.
