Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The turtles are talking about brotherhood, teaching us a few stuffs about parenting four teenagers.
When the Foot Clan started to destroy New York City, inspiring journalist April O’Neil is trying to get out of her sweet-as-candy assignments and scoring a headline at her TV station. She witnessed vigilantes trying to fight the Japanese-led clan and eventually meet the four turtles just to have no one to believe her story... except her father’s former boss, Mr. Eric Sacks. The turtles brought back her past, as well as the adventures for her futures.
The turtles got us laughing all the time, and the funny one isn’t always Mikey. Stay til the end credit and you’ll see something hilarious. I kinda got the plot twist in the middle of the story, so I wasn’t a Sherlock kind of movie. Still, it’s a family movie, so we’re good with the predictable plot. Quality-wise, it’s awesome. I actually entered the theatre without knowing that it’s a live action and not a cartoon. But, I don’t really care, cos I got to see Leonardo and his katanas.
Andrew’s most favorite parts:
"I like it when they’re younger – because they’re cute. They’re scarier when they’re older."
"When Michaelangelo reveal himself by taking off his mask, then April O’Neil went fainted."
(I guess that’s what parents feel when they watch their kids grow up).
PS: Don’t bring kids under 5, some scenes are pretty shocking – like surprise shocking – so I kind of expecting some baby cries during the movie. Plus yes, I’m with Andrew on this, the turtles aren’t cute and cuddly
