Synopsis


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Paramount Pictures and Michael Bay present this reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise with Wrath of the Titans' helmer Jonathan Liebesman directing. The sinister Shredder has seized control of New York City's police and politicians, leaving his ruthless Foot Clan to spread chaos in the streets. With no prospects for salvation in sight, mutant crime-fighters Raphael, Leonardo , Donatello, and Michaelangelo leap into action. They put up a fierce fight, too, though in order to truly defeat Shredder, the heroes in a half shell will need the help of courageous reporter April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and her quick witted cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) as well. With their help, Shredder's plan will quickly unravel, and this once-great city will rise again. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    What's not to love?!

    As an 80's baby, I've watched the TMNT evolve as technology expanded through the decades - from the classic movies and 2D animation to 3D animation and now, a stunning and truly remarkable CGI. As it turned out, half the viewers and fans felt they have been let down, mainly due to the appearances and characteristics of the turtles and how the story was carried out. What they failed to keep in mind was that we loved and enjoyed TMNT for who and what they are, as well as what they stood for and is capable of doing - keepin' it cool and ninja slick while kicking major a**! - ACTION (as opposed to storyline) was what grabbed and entertained us through our younger years...why be so analytical and make cynical judgments with our adult minds?? Enjoy it as if you were 3, 4, 5, or 6 years old again, you'll find yourself enjoying every second of the movie...the ACTION did not disappoint, and the personalities of the characters were captured and melted beautifully into the story and history as it were told. Though I must say, Shredder was a bit much for me (great as a next level Shredder to a sequel) and would like to see a more true, organic, and classic Shredder, similar to what is expected of Splinter. Still, everything about TMNT not only met but exceeded my initial thoughts of the movie, I had to grab the 3D bundle, especially for less than $20 on it's first day release (combined with my $10 reward). With a complete package like so, why not give it a steelbook case to top it off?! Didn't care so much for the 4 masks but thought it was cool and exciting for the kids to collect and wear while viewing the movie, I felt not older than they are in the theatre.

    True to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    I am a fan of the turtles since childhood. I have comics and toys. I watched the original series. I watched the original movies. I played most of the video games including the original NES one. This movie is wonderful. After reading all the nerds complaining about how TMNT would be ruined similarly to Transformers and realizing that Transformers has been ruined, I decided to not watch this movie. It was not until I got it for free on amazon prime did I watch it. I was blown away. There were few changes that did not add to the story in meaningful ways. It made the turtles more impressive for a modern generation used to everything big. The acting and dialogue of the turtles is brilliant. April Oneal has never been important so I could care less who they cast but Fox is adequate. The changes to the plot make it seem slightly more realistic and feasable, while they do still manage to like fun at the sillyness of the concept. The action is non stop. As a movie about a concept I ate, drank and breathed growing up, I loved it. It is one of my favorite comic based movies of all time, possibly fun movies of all time as well.

    First off I'm very thankful the turtles are still mutants in this movie and not the rumored alien origin. Love all the scenes when the turtles are involve. Megan Fox' played April O'Neil very well. The movie could have done well without the Verne character not needed at all. Whoopi playing an editor just didn't fit, didn't find her funny here, character was needed but they could have tried different lines or actress. Lastly the connection between April and the turtles and Splinter works for anyone new to this lore, but as a long time fan its a little hard to accept maybe after a few more times watching it, it might sink in. The technical aspect of the movie is great, picture and sound quality is awesome, haven't look at the bonus features yet. Final comment: Movie is not bad, it is entertaining my wife and kid who's new to this like the movie a lot and wanted to show it to their friends during our twice a month movie night gathering.

    Not a great film, but very cool Steelbook

    The film is okay. Some of the story has been changed, which provides some new interesting ideas into the TMNT mythology. Megan Fox does a decent job of carrying the role of April, but the film is still a little silly. The Turtles themselves don't work to me as CGI creatures, they look a little odd and unsettling. While I wouldn't say I love the film, it is not the total faliure I thought it would be. It is still a fun movie, just don't demand too much thinking from it. I bought it because of the steelbook packaging which is actually quite nice. This exclusive BB edition is shiny, well-constructed, and features some pretty artwork.

    A TMNT Remake for the new generation

    Now don't get me wrong, the original TMNT and TMNT II Secret of the Ooze movies will never be topped. I was an 80's kid so those movies were awesome and still very much are. Since we live in the age of remakes and prequels, it was known sooner or later that TMNT would get the same treatment. This movie has a pretty decent storyline, and of course the CGI turtles are cool looking and re-imagined for a new generation, but they do not come close to the original movies. For younger kids that only know the cartoons on TV for the new generation turtles, im sure this movie will be amazing for them. It is still a worthwhile popcorn flick, but its hard to not compare it to the original turtles movies. As far as this Blu Ray Steelbook edition, it is recommended for collect ability alone.

    I've been a fan of the Ninja Turtles ever since the 1987 Ninja Turtles cartoon came out. Then I saw the live action version of the movie in 1990 and I was disappointed that it didn't feature the turtle van, Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady, however I liked the movie which still holds up to this day. Fast forward to 2014 and you get a Ninja Turtles movie that's a lot closer to the 1987 cartoon, however the only thing missing from this movie is Bebop, Rocksteady and Krang. The turtle van made an appearance towards the very end of the film, which is awesome. They also had Vern from the 1987 cartoon played by Will Arnett, which is awesome because I liked him in Arrested Development. They also casted the hottest April O'Neil ever...Megan Fox.

    I rented TMNT before purchasing so I knew what I was getting. Being a Michael Bay produced movie you should know what you're getting into already. The script is not even worth talking about because it's so bad. What you are paying for when buying in Michael Bay movie is the audio and video, and it does not disappoint. The visual aspect is amazing in the audio is even better. Like I said the movie is not very good but even after renting I purchased this blu-ray because the audio mix is reference quality. Every speaker in my setup was working its butt off through the entire movie. If you have a good quality home theater setup and want to show off to your friends this is the Blu ray to use for audio.

    Better Than I Expected

    I didn't have particularly high expectations for this latest revamp of the TMNT's. It was a Christmas gift for my son who was mildly interested. I honestly think his true reason for wanting to see it lies in his 15 year old hormones and Meagan Fox. But I have to say the movie was better than most of the reviews I had read and the few reports I got from people who saw it in the theater. While it was certainly not the best action movie of 2014, it was entertaining and worth the two hour investment. It has a decent story, some funny bits, a couple cool action sequences and Meagan Fox is pretty easy to look at even if her acting isn't all that great.
