Those crazy teenage mutant ninja turtles are back
in TMNT who have been transformed into 21st century CGI in an action
packed movie suitable for all ages. Featuring the voices of Sarah
Michelle Gellar as April O'Neil, Patrick Stewart as Max Winters and
Chris Evans as Casey Jones, this new incarnation once again reunites
the turtles after a long absence. The leader or sensei of the
turtles is Splinter who is brilliantly voiced by Mako and there is
even a cameo voice by "comic geek" Kevin Smith as a diner cook.
Although their old nemesis is gone, the Foot
Ninja make a welcomed return, along with an ancient evil that
threatens the very fabric of humanity. Fortunately for mankind,
those turtles have once again donned their shells and picked up the
weapons of feudal Japan as Leonardo (James Arnold Taylor),
Michelangelo (Mikey Kelly), Donatello (Mitchell Whitfield) and
Raphael (Nolan North) do what they do best... kicking evil butt!
Although the storyline of this current TMNT pays
homage to the original cartoon series, the story is a little weak
and the action is kind of light but the characters manage to pull
the story together that will leaving you wanting a sequel as the
credits come up. The star of this movie is the state of the arts
computer animation that is quite simply breathtaking and it's almost
as if you are playing a computer game. Kevin Munroe also returns the
film to its almost original conception of a dark comic, unlike the
90's "surfing" attitude. A fun and light-hearted action movie.
