{Movie Review} Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are Back! Sunday 10 August, 2014

The 90s are back with the popular cartoon TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) back with a digital look and 3-D appearance. Cowabunga Dude! I attended a special screening in Atlanta with my 9 year old nephew, Elijah, who was my date for the evening. He is a super Ninja Turtle fan so I definitely had to take him, my special treat to him before school starts. The screening began with something extra special as Wanda Smith (Atlanta V103 radio personality) was joined by her son, Giovanni, who helped her introduce the Atlanta United Tae Kwon Do children’s class for a TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES-style karate demonstration.

If you are a true TMNT fan, you know the characters are very skilled in martial arts and this presentation went well with the movie theme. This was a cute way to start the movie and the kid’s involved did an excellent job with the demonstration. I asked my nephew if he was interested in taking a Karate class and he said yeah! So now we gotta look into that for him!

Movie Synoposis: TURTLES starring Megan Fox and Will Arnett at Regal Perimeter Pointe on Wednesday, August 6th. 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. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

My nephew’s opinion: It was cool! (typical 9-year old with their ‘coo’ responses).

My Opinion: Overall it was a fun interactive movie. I grew up on Ninja Turtles as a 90s kid and I remember watching the original TMNT in 1990, and Vanilla Ice had a song to go with the soundtrack (see I am dating myself lol). It was a cute movie, lots of action, and funny dialogue to go with the theme. It also reminded me how old I am, they adjusted the turle character’s ages to be born in 1999 to make them 15 year olds today. Wow the real TMNT would be actual 39 years old today if they were 15 in 1990 (so they would be Middle-Aged Mutant Ninja Turtles not a great marketing concept lol).

It’s just so interesting to see the upgraded changes from 1990-2014 especially with the technology that is out today. I loved that for it to be a boy-themed movie, Megan Fox was the female protagonist. That rarely happens in movies, especially in an action movie so I appreciate the value in that perspective. I also was shocked to see Whoppi Goldberg feature in the film, I don’t know why I just didn’t expect her to be in a movie like that. My nephew also really enjoyed the 3-D effects of the movie so I would suggest seeing this in 3D! Anyone who is a 90s fan of the nostalgic cartoon and all little boys (and girls) who likes to see villains get their butts kicked with some mutant ninjas go see this! #TURTLEPOWER
