While Michael Bay is listed only one of the producers of the film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a taint of “Transformers” keenly felt here and will not go until the very end. This overabundance of attention to uninteresting people and unforgivable stupidity of the plot, and implausible world, and Schroeder-transformer, of course.
New York wave of crime. The villains of the Foot Clan induce fear in the residents of the city and kidnap chemicals. Reporter April O’Neil (the role went to Megan Fox) wants to make a shocking story on the theme of crime, but she is forced to deal with a fitness instructor and jump on the trampoline. Curiosity coupled with atrophied survival instinct leads the girl to an unexpected discovery.
The first twenty minutes, we demonstrate incompetence April and her desire to create a sensation, having no material, nor the ability to connect two words. She is going through and tolerate unpleasant criticism from superiors. Generally Miss O’Neill – perhaps a key character in the film. Authors are stuck to the narrative intrigue useless death the girl’s father, former journalist and idle chatter with a partner.
On the face of Megan Fox in the majority of situations, whether it’s a serious conversation, intense battle scene or jokes Michelangelo observed detached gaze wandering down the runway model. The authors, in turn, show the weakest side of the talent of the actress – face. The entire film is a girl wears jeans and a blouse closed. In this form, April O’Neil quickly loses all appeal. Not to stare at that, to empathize, “plastic” face does not work.
The creators of all the options perekoverkali origin mutant rat Splinter, forced him to teach martial arts to that found in the sewers of the textbook, and at the same time thrown out of his biography story about revenge Shredder. Therefore bug under the guidance of teachers fighting the Foot Clan, because we need. The evil corporation with “insidious” plan also does not fit well into the narrative.Given the characteristics of the plot, Foot soldiers do not have to be frostbitten bandits.
– The city is ours.
Because of all this ever have to send the logic to take a walk and take a movie without trying to understand the plot. Make it easy, as the authors tend to be long and pathetic scenes impressively chewing the simplest things. In addition, in the local universe, something strange is happening with the weather. In New York, all dressed up easily and do not see even a hint of winter, and in the country the ground is covered with snow.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles not be called saviors of the picture. Michelangelo poses as a green rapper and weighed the same type of vulgar jokes. Leonardo is the leader of the scenario, but the actions to confirm their status in a hurry. Donatello – computer genius, whose individuality is emphasized only points. Rafael is commonplace bully. Situation without much success straighten rare jokes with references to comic book heroes.
Four tends to overly expressive, turning into a farce, teenage squabble. At other times they look like a one-dimensional action hero, who clumsily portray drama. And apparently they resemble monsters: a cross between hipsters pitching and distant relatives Bowser. This is not a playboy of the cartoons.
But the authors have shown great strength in battle mutants. Heroes of powerful blows scatter fighters Foot Clan and not without the help of arms. Shredder got a futuristic armor and turned into a kind of transformer. Battle with him pleasing spectacular tricks and good choreography. But the authors overload their samopovtorov and villain suffers from bouts of inadequate charity and not just leaves turtles alive without logical explanations.
Decoration of the film is a chase scene in a snow-covered slope. According to the heroes shoot a bazooka, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles smash machines opponents, use gadgets and join forces to rescue comrades. The creators of the surprise finds inventive and spectacular maneuvers seamlessly.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, even allowing for the controversial design heroes, has potential.Scene descent from the mountain looks great, feel the power of mutants in fights. Based on this, you can make a quality fighter. Another would be the source not misinterpret and not make him rambling nonsense, but to reduce the role of people to a minimum … Alas, much of the film is reserved for tedious problems April and surprising idiocy plans sinister corporation, the characters tend to be silly charade, and opponents are contrary to common sense. An hour and forty minutes do not have time to get tired of the film, but a couple of memorable moments and successful jokes are not the most compelling reason for the visit to the cinema.
