|Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles |
DIRECTED BY: Jonathan Liebesman
STARRING: Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson
THE PLOT: The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan
WORTH WATCHING? Each turtle actually sounds pretty good, and their banter is absolutely on point with what you would expect. This remake shows a lot that previous movies couldn’t show. It’s much more than we’ve seen before; it definitely feels like they’ve got the characteristics of all four turtles to perfection.
Raphael is loose-tempered but principled and brave enough to attract the attention of viewers.
VERDICT: This could be the movie that brings the turtles back to the top.
