Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and the evil Foot Clan have their intentions on unleashing a chemical attack on the city. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil and her wise-cracking cameraman Vernon Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.
I didn’t think this movie would be good at all but I have to admit, I kind of enjoyed it. The action is fun and some of the humor is good, but it is a dumb movie, too. I didn’t like Will Arnett’s character, he was a bit annoying. Megan Fox was good as April O’Neil, and I felt that even though she’s been in bad movies, this role was fine. The 3D visuals are what surprised me (they were really good). I felt that I could relate to the turtles at some points.
I really liked the Shredder. He is an awesome villain who reminded me of the Winter Soldier from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, because they both have a mask and they are both super bad-ass! The battle between the turtles and Shredder was pretty awesome.
Overall, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an enjoyable movie but it is really dumb. I would recommend it for kids age 12 and up.
