Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer 2

Latest trailer for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. Hmmmm…

Plot Summary: 
The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.” (YouTube)

So, we have:

  • Megan Fox with her mouth open (check)
  • Rapidly edited fight scenes (check)
  • Turtles arguing amongst themselves (check)
  • Supposedly real-world due to Batman reference (check)
  • Inception BRRRRRMMMM (check)
  • Panning shots (check)
  • Voice over from Splinter (check)
  • Screaming citizens (check)
  • Guns firing (check)
  • Robot shredder (wtf? Check)
  • Everything looking like it’s going wrong (check)
  • Splinter getting hurt / dying (check)
  • Words of wisdom coupled with winning shots (check)
  • Turtles angry but need to work together (check)
  • Dubstep music (check)
  • Explosions (check)
  • Explanations of the obvious (check)
  • Scenery collapsing (check)
  • Perilous situations (check)
  • NOT ALIENS. But are ninjas (check)
  • Lack of depth (check)

Hmmmm… Really not sure about the film now. I’m a big fan of TMNT, but this seems to make it, I don’t know, purely combat and explosion orientated, and removing the characters of the turtles. I’ll most likely end up seeing it, but I’m not super hyped for it. Like I said before, I hope it’s not just another transformers, but is something with a little more depth to it.
