We’ve spent so much time here at Critical-Hits in awe over the wonder that is 300 for the past couple of weeks, that we critically failed in bringing coverage on a different movie. A movie that does not rely on eight pack abs and buns of steel to appeal to its audience. Enough of that. I’m not here to bad mouth that other action movie in theatres right now (I have done enough of that on the forums), but to revel in the excellence that is TMNT.
In case you have been asleep for the past two weeks, here was an Attack of the Show exclusive featuring an extended trailer.
Having recently seen the movie, I can tell you that it is not as campy as the original movies. The writers tried to do more to be true to the comic books, and I believe they did a good job. There is at times a very dark tone to accompany the ninja action and humor that we are all accustomed to seeing from the turtles. This combination blends the absurd with the serious and the result is the best CGI ninja movie in the world! (Are there other CGI ninja movies?)
