Luke Owen gives a few reasons to be excited for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…
We’re only a couple of months away from the release of the Michael Bay produced and Jonathan Liebsman directed reboot to classic comic book series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Since the movie’s announcement, it’s been met with mostly negativity from the Internet Community, who feel that the director of the Transformers franchise is going to ruin another piece of 80s nostalgia.
The first trailer came out and it silenced a few critics. Then on Tuesday, a second trailer was released and it silenced even more critics. It doesn’t look as bad as many had feared. The action looks solid, the comedy is light and it doesn’t feel like the giant train wreck some were expecting.
However, there are still those who feel like this is going to be a giant waste of time. A good 80% of our writing staff felt this way in the Flickering Myth Reaction and the tweets about the trailer are also showing that a large portion of the cinema audience (and TMNT fans) are not happy with this new film.
But come on guys – it’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Let’s get excited!
So, to try and put some minds at ease, let’s look at 5 reasons to get excited about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
