As many of you are aware, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
is the biggest part of my brothers and my childhood. We were nuts about the Heroes in the Half-Shell and considered us still fans of the franchise today. Of course, there has to be a new movie of the Turtles.
I was fully aware that Micheal Bay got involved with this film and that's when my doubts seeps into my thoughts.
Now I actually had no problem with his Transformers
film since I had fun with those movies despite their flaws(though the first movie is still the best) because I had no history with G1 Transformers
back then; in fact, I was born too late when the show was on air, 1990 if you will(it was Beast Wars
that introduced me to the Transformers franchise XD.) That justifies why I'm not jumping on the bandwagon to hate the Transformers films; though I would admit if G1 Transformers was part of my childhood, I might
be outraged and/or disappointed to these films, unless if I'm more open-minded... That doesn't mean I'm defending Bay, he's not a great director anyway.
So while Bay's Transformers films don't bother me that much due to lack of my past history with G1 Transformers, his involvement in the new TMNT movie did bother me during it's development... that was until I saw the film yesterday...
I had a blast! I'm really digging this movie! It's almost
as good as the first movie. You might think I sounded insane when I turn out to love this movie, but I got a good reason why after I tell you what this movie has some to offer...
The movie isn't just an action flick, it's also a comedy. It reminded me of the '87 and the Nick show. The actions aren't half bad, yet the sliding down the wintery slope part is awesome. The comedy can be cheesy, but you can get some good laughs for the most part.
The Turtles... while they aren't lookers, if you can get past their ogre faces, they are still the likable Turtles as they way are suppose to be.
Megan Fox as April O' Neil... I wouldn't say her performance is at her best, but she actually gets the job done. In fact this April really did feel like '87 April; with her interests to get a thrilling story and gets bored for something not-so thrilling.
Shredder... the costume is overdone, but he's actually intimidating if I can get past the silliness of him being a walking Swiss Army Knife XD.
Now here's a good reason why I turn out to love this movie... This movie may not have some of the more familiar consistency you might remember from the past... but the fact is that with so many incarnations of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the whole franchise aren't overly consistent to each other. Though several incarnations have to keep the classic lore with the Turtles and Splinter became what they are overall like their first ever comic book, but they also may tell it in a different way as long as the mutagen/ooze is required. For example, Splinter is always a rat and (sometimes) was Hamato Yoshi's pet in the Mirage comics, the 2003 show, the first movie, and the new IDW comics; otherwise he IS Hamato Yoshi in the '87, the Nick show, and even the IDW comics mentions that Splinter is Yoshi's reincarnation. With that being said, I'm treating this movie as it's own universe while having the familiar territory.
The reactions of this movie may depend on anyway they look at it. I know some fans will like, maybe even love this movie, and others will say otherwise as disappointed of it or hate it. As for me, I took for what it is and gladly accepted as part of the new universe.
Oh BTW... HAPPY 30th ANNIVERSARY TURTLES!!!! TURTLE POWER FOREVER!!!!
