The brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja trailer just hit online and it really tells us a lot about what the movie is aiming to be. Check out the trailer below and then I will talk a little after that about what I get from the trailer.
OK, one positive from the trailer is the first look at Shredder in his armor. We also see a lot of the Turtles winning battle in the subway, getting beaten by Shredder’s army and then avenging what looks like a serious defeat at the hands of Shredder.
There was also a joke when Whoopi Goldberg asks if they are aliens and Meagan Fox laughs and said they aren’t aliens, they are turtles. This is a good way for Michael Bay to snub his nose at the rumors that ran rampant when an early version of the script leaked.
However, then there are the bad points. First of all, the sound effects really sound just like the Transformers sound effects, and that really distracts from the trailer. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are not The Transformers, even if Michael Bay is behind both of them. Then, there is the music which makes this really feel more like a Michael Bay movie than a Turtles movie.
Honestly, it looks like this movie will be a little too much like Michael Bay and less of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, and that is a very bad thing. I won’t condemn the movie unseen, but things don’t look promising from this trailer. What are your thoughts? Let us know below.
