I read a bunch ofI feel sorry for Michael Bay haters. You people are so full of hate you don't even understand how to be honest anymore. I read a bunch of reviews and it is just pure hate and I seriously doubt no matter what he does, you will like it. So if you are a person trying to decide to see this movie, read me and not all the haters.
This is a fun movie. It is not Citizen Kane, but what it is, you will like. It typical Michael Bay fashion, this movie is a lot of action and some laughs. Not too deep of a story. But what do you want this is a movie about talking turtles that know karate???? I guess all the haters wanted Shakespeare.
One major thing that I really hate is when everyone fits together like one big messed up family. Two points taken away for that. It is lazy story making and I will not stand for it. It was also unnecessary. The story is really predictable, but again, this is an action movie. Loses one more point.
Other than that this is a fun film. There is a new twist on the general storyline of how the turtles came to be and "purest" will complain. As if there are turtles purest. lol Those people will always complain about all. They would complain if the story was not changed some. The CGI is awesome. The turtles look great. The voices were good. Their characters were well done. I don't agree with most everything about The Shredder, but whatever. I hope they were thinking sequel.
Bottom line if you want to see a cute and fun movie that is entertaining, go see this movie. Do not listen to the haters.… Expand

The trailers looked a bit silly, but I heard some good things and it is Marvel, so what the heck. I am very glad I went. Hugely entertaining. Very good characters and lots of them. If there is one thing I am not too keen on is the lack of effort and originality when it comes to all these aliens. Marvel needs to do more than just color people with odd makeup. Chris Pratt is ok and likeable. Still not sure why he is considered to be anything more than average. The story is pretty sound. The humor is great. Kinda reminds me of a better The 5th Element. For a super hero movie, no one is really a super hero with super powers unless you count tree man, Groot voiced by Vin Diesel. Seriously Vin, I hope hey did not pay for much for your one line. In my opinion, Bradley Cooper steals the movie in every scene.
For sure worth your $11 or so bucks. I did not see the 3D version.… Expand

I do not know how much is historically correct, but I have never seen or heard about anything in history that was close to what is in this film. For a 2 plus hour film, no time was spent dealing with the struggle to build the ark. Poof it was built in 2 mins and all the kids were grown.… Expand

Very good and interesting set up and then the last 15 - 20 just sucked. I am a big Besson fan, but this movie lacked charm and style he usually brings to his movies. Much less action than I was hoping for. Scarlet does a decent job, but she could have and should have done better. Maybe she did not want to do what she does on the Marvel movies too much and I am not talking action wise. The score was terrible. Usually Besson movies scores draw you into the movie much more.
This movie is worth a watch, but I would wait a few months for redbox or netflicks. Not worth $11 in the theaters.
Overall, a great concept, but fails very short in my opinion. One guy was telling his girl that he thought it would be better. I have to agree with him. Very let down.....again.… Expand

There are many lost people in this country (USA) that believe many bad things about America. This film explores all of these issues and sets the record straight. As a documentary, it does cover in detail both sides, but in the end it is more shaded to one side.
Typically, the pathetic liberal critics who love everything Michael "fat useless liberal uneducated lying scumbag" Moore does, but seem to hate this movie. I will say it, they are killing this because they are liberal and it kills many liberal ideals.
Do not listen to the critics. Go see this movie. This movie does not cover up the bad things we have done in our history. This movie tells us why we are uniquely American. There is not nearly enough about how the media is covering for the demoncrats, but maybe that is for another book and movie. It is high time kids and people hear the truth and the positive side of our history.
I normally do not like to cover plot points or storylines, but one of the things that is a dark side of our history covered in the movie is slavery. While slavery is denounced in the movie as it should, it does remind us the United States is the first and only country to fight a civil war in order to stop slavery. You won't hear that anywhere in the liberal media world.
Example after example, this movie shows us that there is a lot of good about America even out of bad situations. We see some of the players who have shaped not only our education and way of life, but how this came about. This film reminds us that we the people are the ones that can stop all the evil things the demoncrats are doing today.
We must all go out and support this movie as a point to Obama and Pelosi and Reid and the entire liberal mass media and democratic party that the people are smart and willing to rise up against this anti American movement we are experiencing today.
Critics can say what they will, but this movie is not lying. This movie tells us the truth.… Expand
