Review

I. Just. Can’t. Contain. Myself.

IT WAS TOO PERFECT.

Yes it was a Michael Bay so there were a few sequences of fighting which was….epic, but over all it wasn’t terribly explosiony (I made a word up…yes xD).

The animations of the turtles were beautiful as well. I would have liked their faces a little less human looking, but over all, I honestly can’t complain. I’m really happy about their size and how they made them taller than humans because in some of the TV seasons of TMNT they were shorter than adult humans and it just wouldn’t have worked.

There were a lot of comical moments which appealed to all ages. Some jokes could be taken for two different ages; children taking it as one meaning while adults taking it a completely different way.

And probably, one of THE funniest scenes in the movie. No, it isn’t spoilers…as far as I know xD. Just some funny stuff.

The movie was short, only about 1 hour and 40 minutes long and it was happily a simple story line. It took the general idea of TMNT with The Shredder and the mutagen but twisted it slightly so they could make it more realistic and used that.

Overall…IT WAS JUST TOO PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes I have been a fan of this show for a little while (a few years) and so this movie was perfect. I’ve literally had a count down on my laptop for about 2 years….and when it started counting down by the days…I couldn’t wait. So of course I had to see it the day it came out.

Yes….my couple of friends and I (one of whom is obsessed as well, the rest we dragged along) were the oldest in the audience. The rest were little boys with their parents. But we didn’t care xD. We wore our green shirts or pants with pride, and my friend wore her mask. xD Nerdy…but so much fun!

If you were a fan of the TV shows as a child or like the TV shows now, I’d honestly suggest to go and see it. I thought April would be portrayed badly as Megan Fox is always made to play a ditzy role, but this time she was given a decent role. She was actually smart and actually kicked some serious ass, surprisingly, which was quite nice.

So go and see it as it just came out! It was soooo good…and I think I’m gonna go see it again. xD

So happy viewing!!!!!!
