Whatever it is that this genre is. I'll give you the good points and the bad points: Good: 1) Excellent basic plot. The main story for this movie made sense, connected the characters up very well, was somewhat derivative but with enough unique twists to be "believable" and interesting. That separates this from 90% of the non-Marvel entries in this genre. 2) Megan Fox is looking great and her sidekick does well enough in the shallow sidekick role. Didn't like Goldberg in the editor spot but Fichtner is a valid if fungible villain. 3) The running time was right on - not overlong as too many movies are now, long enough to do what it had to do. No filler. Bad: 1) The biggest flaw was grossly overdone CGI, enough that I said to myself this smells like Michael Bay ("dude, can we take our brewskies?"), sure enough there he was as an executive producer in the closing credits. In a cartoon type movie of this magnitude this was not as fatal as in other features. 2) Distinguishing the characters(turtles). I had a little trouble making out the different personalities, even to the end. Again, not entirely fatal. My 9 year old mildly enjoyed this, he doesn't always make it to the end of these things. But for him I would give this a 7, as it was this was one or two steps above bearable.
