Ooooo those turtles. I have always loved them since I was a wee thing myself. Now...this is the 2nd film of the series. Did I watch the first film? Mhmmm....I think I did...I just cannot remember. There is so much back and forth about it. Some people really love it. Some hate it. Some are just eh. Plus...I really feel the turtle do not so well as live action. 

This wasn't horrible....but it wasn't great. It was just eh. So yes, that is the club I fall into. Some good moments, some not so good moments. 

We all should have a basic knowledge of the turtles. BUT for those that don't...the turtles are ninjas who protect the city. They eat pizza and are occasionally around April and Casey who help. 

The effects were pretty good. The turtle were hugggeeee but cool looking. I wish they were smaller. 

The acting was decent except for the lady who plays April. WHY DOES SHE KEEP GETTING ROLES? She never has any emotion on her face. She is a sexy version of Kristen Stewart. Zero acting skills. 

I was also very disappointed with the Casey version. I like the actor, but I hated how they portrayed the character. 

I will admit that this film really had some hilarious moments. The writing had its moments throughout the movie. 

Overall...this had its moments and I enjoyed the effects. Pretty sweet. If you like the Turtles I think you wouldn't mind this. Not amazing or great and not bad. Just meh. I'll give this 3 stars. There was one scene that had me rolling on the floor with laughter so I'll bump it up to 3.
