    [A] basically brainless but intermittently adrenalizing, mostly-just-for-kids reboot.

    The castmembers portraying Splinter and the turtles achieve a persuasive level of realism that was never possible with the elaborate puppetry required for the original film series and adequately fulfill expectations for their characters.

    A consistently workmanlike helmer, Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans, Battle: Los Angeles) keeps the pace brisk and the overall tone closer to that of the recent G.I. Joe vehicles, infusing this glorified toy commercial with an almost aggressively knowing sense of humor and exactly one fun action sequence on New York’s most conveniently located mountaintop.

    Utterly inessential, this slightly cheap-looking reboot of the Turtles franchise is froth too — it might even be too tame for the kids who make up the target audience.

    If nothing else, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reminds us that nostalgia is often used as a mandate for spectacularly lazy filmmaking.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles isn’t a movie; it’s a brand re-launch that’s going to satisfy stockholders far more than it’s going to entertain the people who paid to watch it.

    The cloddish, confusing action scenes make no sense. Young viewers’ eyes will glaze from the first-person video-game style. Nonaction scenes feature people sniping at each other, or, in Arnett’s case, croaking out the script’s half-assed witticisms, until the Turtles show up.

    This review will ot include the phrase michel bay ruined my childhood. Let me start off by saying that i have seen the first teenage mutantThis review will ot include the phrase michel bay ruined my childhood. Let me start off by saying that i have seen the first teenage mutant ninja turtles movie ever made. The cartoon movies and some of the tv show. Now this movie is far from perfect. I'm not going to lie it really is not. I was fairly excited to hear they were doing a teenage mutant ninja turtles movie. This movie was not a complete bastardization of my childhood like many are pronouncing but The biggest problems I had with this movie was there was not enough splinter and turtles relashinship. Were supposed to feel bad for splinter when he dies but I don't because i barly get to see enough of him. The backstory of the turtles I was like what??????. I appreciate Hollywood trying to be original for once but this just didn't work. Also will arnett's portrayal of Vern was so annoying. I would have loved to see megan fox hurtle him into the ocean. I would have been so happy. Next the foot clan are supposed to be ninjas not mercenaries. I don't have a problem with them being mercenaries it's just that i would have like to see them fight with there fists instead of just shooting. Next The villain who I was not expected him to be and he was very bad. Probably one of the worst villain portrayals of the 21 first century. He was just so boring. Last but not least as many people have already stated this movie focused too much on April o neil and not enough on the turtles. When were supposed to feel scared for the turtles I just don't because not enough time was spent on them. however there are some bright sides. The action scenes were actually pretty awesome. Especially the snow action scene and the fight between splinter and shredder was done to perfection. next, even though the turtles didn't get enough screen time they each had there own personality and each felt different witch i liked. Many people complained about shredders look but i loved it. It was so Awesome I just can't even. And a certain pizza company makes a cameo which to be honest is just a consumerism technique I was very happy they included that in the movie. And last but not least this is Megan fox's best movie I have seen her act in even though as I stated before I would have liked to see less of her Unfortunately teenage mutant ninja turtles lacks any ice ice baby, heart, and turtle splinter connection that could give this movie an extra push. This movie could also be 20 minutes longer. I know it was a movie was made for kids but keep in mind there are probably kids in the audience who are probably familiar with the cartoon. knowing kids they probably couldn't really care This movie is also the perfect example of Hollywood trying to be original but fails pretty miserably. I appreciate this Hollywood but it's just not well executed. this movie it's self also suffers from the many flaws and missed opportunities script wise that would have made this movie great. Expand

She was theMegan Fox is certainly a beautiful woman but she needs to either stop using too much botox or invest more time learning to act. She was the only non CGI main character in the movie but somehow the least expressive. Its not like Fox needs to give a Oscar winning interpretation but her surprise, scare and amazed face where exactly the same and not very convincing. I know that the plot needs to be water down because of intended audience but it does not mean that there should be none at all. Expand
