If you went through elementary and middle school during the 90’s, you probably at least enjoy two things unless you suck: The X-Men and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
When I heard they were making another live action TMNT movie, I was like…
And then I heard Michael Bay (from Transformers fame) was involved in it and Megan Fox was in it and I was like… … …. …
So… I really needed to see a trailer… and one has appeared
And I still don’t know what to think.
Somehow, in a movie about ninja turtles, the trademark destruction and explosions were present in the trailer. So… Bay is gonna Bay. And Megan Fox is gonna Megan Fox (aka be sucky at acting). And I still am not sure why Shredder is white and not Asian and Shredder created the Turtles… wait… what???
But there is definitely somethings to like. The turtles are fucking HUGE. My lord they look gigantic. And it is obvious they are going to be strong as hell too judging by how they were punching people like Neo. There seems to be some ninja still there (the part where people were flying around for no reason). And overall the designs seems pretty good if not weird. And they are obviously keeping in some of the trademark humor.
So for now… consider me cautiously optimistic. We still need to see all the turtles talk (ESPECIALLY RAPHAEL!!!) and we still need to see Splinter. But… optimistic. The next trailer will be more revealing.
