Cowabunga? Not really!

Cowabunga? Not really!

The thing about a movie like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is, you already have a clear set of expectations the moment you’re witness to the trailer, in which one of the title slates speaks out what the rest of the movie holds for you, loud and clear:

From Producer Michael Bay

Not that he’s necessarily an active part of the film, but for Bay’s hardcore action-frenzied trademarks, there’s always a possibility there’s one of his kinks snuck in quietly, without anyone possibly noticing.

The other major problem with this movie (yes, there are other potential red signals apart from Bay) is director Jonathan Liebesman. For those of you who find the name not ringing any bells, let’s remind ourselves of Wrath of the Titans and Battle: Los Angeles. Not to disregard any of the hard work done on the fantastic technical visual artistry in the films – or any appreciation otherwise for it – but the movies were major disappointments; more the latter than the former, in fact.

And to top it all, we have the return of Megan Fox in an (almost) Michael Bay movie. Not that she’s dislikable or does anything in the films to offend, but that’s basically the point. She usually doesn’t do anything. All people have gone over to the movies to see her for is strictly eye candy.

What it promises, however, to a younger section of the audience – and those looking for a possible nostalgia trip with this film – is entertainment. Whether it delivers is a completely different question.
