Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Five Reasons You’ll Love It

For the first time since 2007’s TMNT, the world’s most beloved and famous turtles are back on the big screen. This time, they’re back in a new live action feature, directed by Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Hollywood tycoon Michael Bay, with Megan Fox, Will Arnett and four green fellows in the starring roles. 

It’s in cinemas today (October 17th), but we caught an early screening and have rounded up five reasons you’ll love it…

 

The Turtles look awesome...

The biggest worry ahead of this film was getting the look of the turtles right, they're such iconic cartoon characters and people have such fond memories of the TV series that transplanting them to live action was always going to be a huge challenge. But the filmmakers have pulled it off, they dont' look too goofy or too leathery, they look badass, and huge... 

 

The action sequences are brilliant…

The action set pieces in this film have the stamp of Michael Bay all over them, full of explosive action and fast cut fight scenes. And they come thick and fast…

 

Will Arnett is on excellent form…

As wisecracking cameraman Vern Fenwick, the Arrested Development star is able to bring his deadpan wit and perfect comic timing to the film's quieter moments. 

 

There are some excellent one-liners...

The banter between the turtles is a little awkward to start with, but warms up quickly and they managed to get in some excellent one-liners, including a quality gag about pizza...

 

This is pure popcorn fun…

If you walk in to this expecting anything other than 90 minutes of pure entertainment you’ll be disappointed, this is a turn your brain off, kick back and be entertained film. And all the better for it. 



Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is released into cinemas today (October 17th).
