It has been some time since the release of my favorite childhood mutant superhero remake, but I was finally able to watch it last night. Before the release of the movie, I would watch the trailers and have a sinking feeling that something from my childhood was going to be ruined by Hollywood executives that seemed to have run out of original ideas, and were left with only being able to completely destroy once great stories/movies. Much to my surprise, I actually found myself enjoying this new movie. It was an interesting take that wasn't completely loaded with cheesy one-liners. While the story could have been written a bit better, I was impressed overall with the look and feel of the movie. The computer effects on the the turtles was decent, and the fight scenes to go along with that actually blew me out of the water. I was expecting something horrible, but like I said, I was impressed. Aside from the overall story, my only other complaint was Megan Fox. I don't think shes the worst thing to happen to the big screen, but she clearly has issues acting with CGI characters. I could feel how uncomfortable she was. I give it an 8/10.
