We have been teased over and over for a few months now with the [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles](movie:323027) trailers and TV spots. We've seen full length views of the turtles in a half shell, but we have NOT seen a good look of Splinter or Shredder until now...
Take another look at the Turtles:
Now there has been a lot of negative feedback when it comes to this new incarnation of the turtles. "They don't look like teenagers," "Why are they so big," and the worst of them all, "Michael Bay is Directing it, I ain't watching." It's actually being directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and if I'm not mistaken Bay is just producing it. You can tell by how the tone of the trailers portray the movie. It has a very Transformers feel to it and I can dig it. I for one am excited to see this film.

Sure it won't beat the classics. This is a reboot and if the story makes sense then trust me it will work. Sure they will twist the origin of the Turtles, Splinter, and Shredder but sometimes change is good. I like to always keep an open mind and welcome a reboot if the script is solid and believable. I'm just glad we are past the days of animatronic heads with off-sync lip movement. Believe me, all the smack talkers will turn out in crowds to watch this. And of course, so will the people who grew up with playing with the TNMT action figures as a child. You just gotta let go and enjoy a movie for what it is. Entertainment! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looks to not disappoint.
Will you be seeing it in theaters? Let me know how you feel about the reboot so far?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit theaters August 8, 2014.
