THE LEADERS. THE BRAINS. THE ATTITUDE. AND MIKEY.
The Foot Clan has New York City in a grip of violence, but TV reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) discovers that mysterious vigilantes are fighting the terror group… A 3D reboot of the film franchise that was originally based on a 30-year-old comic book and has since spawned movies and TV shows. Fans are likely to be pleased because this reintroduction of the pizza-loving Turtles has charm and some good action, especially an insane chase down a snowy mountainside. The mo-cap effects expertly bring the Turtles to life… but non-fans are likely to shrug their shoulders.
