Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his foot clan have a grip on everything. It’s up to 4 special brothers to save the city. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, starring Meagan Fox and Will Arnett, revisits these lethal mutant turtles as well as their teacher Splinter in the story of their origin and their nemesis Shredder. Thrown into the mix is April O’ Neal(Fox) a reporter who wants more, who is directly connected to and responsible for the turtles and their survival when they were young which was not shown in the earlier movies.
This movie is packed with action, which is what you always get from Michael Bay. Also there’s more violence as well, I really don’t remember the Foot clan toting around machine guns before. I found interesting that we saw the different personalities of our four ninjas like Michelangelo the funny , lighthearted one , Donetello, the genius, Raphael the Serious and angry one, and Leonardo the leader of the pack. I didn’t like the heavy exposition in the first couple of minutes. It seemed fairy tale ish. Also the faces and physiques of the four, was weird for me. They are totally different from my childhood days.
FINAL THOUGHT: Overall the movie was good but minus a few new details and the 3D feature, I think this is the same plot. The city is always in peril and shredder is always a problem.
I give this movie : 🌟🌟🌟🌟
