That’s right, folks! The movie about CGI laden, odd faced, green mutants taken from your Gen X childhood is getting Bayformed yet again. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:
And, in case you missed it, here’s the important non-CGI part:
That’s right, nothing says “heroes in a half shell” like Megan Fox’s cleavage.
Now, it would be really easy to slam this film – unless you keep in mind that the primary demographic this is being made for is Hollywood’s version of a 13 year old boy. From that standpoint, it ALL MAKES SENSE. Explosions, action, slow motion, quippy dialogue, and a pretty girl.
In all fairness, we will have to see if “Casey Jones,” Stephen Amell from Arrow, will have one of his famous shirtless scenes to cater to the other gender (or preference.)
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! These kids will have to go see it with their parents, so someone in the marketing department dug up an old Run DMC song to remix and play on top of the explosions, action, slow motion, quippy dialogue, and the pretty girl. Nostalgia sells, right?
Yes, it does look like a “a giant piece of cg crap” (to quote my wife) – but it looks like less crap than the first movie IMO. I supposed it could be worse. They could try remaking something more dramatic from the eighties, like, Dirty Dancing. I mean, no one is THAT stupid, right?
