Movie Review: TMNT (2007)

This movie is definitely not the 1990 rubber suit version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I really enjoyed TMNT (2007) and I think it went a long way towards capturing the feel of the comic series. In watching it the city of New York just didn’t feel right. Over at Ironic Sans They addressed this very same issue. It was good, but not in a “hey lookit, I know that location or skyline” way. On the animation side the animation was well done with the exception of the lip sync just not meshing up well, but that could have been done with an eye towards dubbing the movie in to multiple languages and wasn’t distracting once I stopped paying attention to it. The lighting was solid if a bit bright for my tastes. Overall I enjoyed it and I hope that more movies get made. It makes me hopeful for the Astro Boy film that Imagi is working on now. Rating: 3.5/5
