Nope, not a fan - though I was actually expecting worse. Heck, luckily Will Arnett was there to awkwardly try to woo Megan Fox or the whole thing would have been a disaster. In any case, like any good film that Michael Bay has a stake in - a lot of CGI and action but barely any story. Granted, when five of the main characters are giant turtles (and a giant rat) and William Fichtner is chewing all the scenery, well, you get what you deserve.

I started watching this film without expecting any great action. But man, the ninja turtles are awesome! The troop of Rafael, Leonardo, Donatello, and Michaelangelo is such a great combo of fun and strong vigilantes. A good one!!!

As usual Michael Bay has started a franchise well but this is rebooted which makes it even more excellent and the film has excellent visual effects so everyone watch this

A re-introduction to the Ninja Turtles - complete with motion-capture CGI, Megan Fox starring, and Michael Bay producing. This looked like another bad 'Transformers' sequel, but I found it to be slightly better... or more tolerable. Most of the annoying characters, unfunny crass humor, and blatant commercialization in those films is surprisingly subdued. There's still some dumb moments, but none of it bugged me in the same way. We get a retelling of the turtles' backstory through April uncovering their mystery during most of the first half of the film. This approach seemed unnecessary given that not much at all about their backstory is changed. A few tiny additions are made for the sake of tying into this new modern day era. The plot is pretty forgettable. We don't spend too much …

I’m not a movie insider. I don’t know how the studio process works, but it seems to me that things like this shouldn’t happen. Movies have been around for a long time, we know how to make action movies enjoyable. In a sane logical world there would be no reason that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles couldn’t be an entertaining diversion, but we do not live in a sane logical world.
I have no idea why this new “turtles" movie has made so much money over the weekend. The entire buzz on the internet has been negative. My guess is that the majority of the audience is young people, fans of the newer version of the TV show. This makes near infinite sense to me; Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles is a very juvenile movie. I don’t even mind that it’s juvenile though. Being childish …

This summer. get ready, to see, the most ugliest CG that you have ever seen. I was not planing on seeing this movie for good reasons. The turtles in this movie look like Shrek in real life but if you add so ugly CG in to it then you get the turtles in this movie. and Micheal Bay was behind this movie and I know his the of producer of this movie but the movie has that Micheal Bay look to it. After seeing the movie I got to say that this movie sucks ass. The writing in this movie is dreadful and Megan Fox didn't do a awful job playing April O'Neil but she didn't do a fantastic playing the character. The only good thing in this movie is the turtles themselves. there had funny jokes and so bad-ass fight scenes, but overall Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is another failed reboot that doesn't …

Well, it has made enough that a sequel has already been announced. I have a feeling this is going to turn out just like the Transformers series - lots of loud noises and extreme CGI and little else to care about (and Megan Fox too - can't forget about her).

yeah. I just read the box office report for Friday. Looks like I was just about as wrong as one can be. Turtles opened significantly higher than even Maleficent. I figured family audiences would be alienated by the pg-13 rating. Guess that's not the case.

I refuse to watch the new Ninja Turtles movie because, frankly, it looks terrible - I would much rather watch Into the Storm if only because it looks like something I would enjoy, whereas everything I've seen from the new Turtles movies rubs me the wrong way.That being said, Box Office Mojo is predicting Guardians is going to have a sharp 67% drop over the weekend - and early indications peg Ninja Turtles at around the $65 million mark and Guardians at around $40 million or so. It's too bad, …
