he TMNT trailer was released yesterday, Michael Bay raped the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle name, franchise and under two minutes decimated more than 25 years of history.
One might think over the years and to keep up with changing generations slight variations may have to be made. I would concede to this, however, when Shredder is a WHITE business guy from America in this abomination, makes absolutely no sense to the story line. Historically and even some slight variations through movies, comics or cartoons it has always been Shredder's brother (Nagi) competed with the Yoshi (owner of Splinter, the Turtles' mentor) for the love of a woman. A feud erupted between Yoshi and Nagi. Nagi died and Yoshi fled to New York City.
To avenge his brother's death Shredder joined the Foot Clan and trained to be a ninja. Eventually he was put in charge of the American branch of the Clan and carried out his revenge. During the attack, Yoshi's pet rat, Splinter escaped. He later mutated into an anthropomorphic form, and spent years training the four Ninja Turtles to avenge Yoshi's death.
Since there was not enough bullshit, Bay had to further decimate the TMNT name with, "Heroes are not born, they are created" and it is done in a lab. A lab that "Shredder" and April O’Neill's father created. While the turtles still "mutated", the ooze came from space. The original script called the turtles to be aliens but it was scrapped due to the fan outrage. Somehow an alien theme had to be kept, perhaps to stroke Bay's ego? To add insult to injury Megan Fox stars as April O’Neill and Whoopi Goldberg as her boss. While I was groaning at how bad this trailer was, the turtles finally made an appearance.
They are so terrible, I don't even know where to start. They look like a dinosaur with big lips, teeth, and a big ass shell on his back. They have super ninja strength and have no issues with knocking over a hummer, and during the movie there is no way that these turtles will need any assistance lifting cars, holding open doors or any other bullshit that will contradict this.
I can't even find anything good to say, about this trailer, the Foot Clan is a Black Ops unit, Shredder's a white business man, Megan Fox is April O'Neil, the Turtles look like fucking dinosaurs, Michael Bay is directing another Transformer's but using turtles that are 8 feet tall instead of robots. We can see why this movie was written, shelved, started, rewritten and is now being released it does not take a genius to see why there is so many problems.
