I don't know if anyone likes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but seeing as it's one of my favorite childhood series, I thought I'd check.
I'm not into the new series at all, but I thought I'd check this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Forever feature, seeing as it had the 80's Turtles in it.
I gotta say it's pretty awesome!
If you ignore the voices of the old characters that are sometimes totally off, it's quite a funny feature.
The different art styles are handled pretty well, I was laughing out loud when they got to the 80's Turtles universe. Only then did I realise how weird some of those people are designed.
The whole throwback to the Turtles origin was pretty awesome too. I wonder how Eastman and Laird felt about their pencil drawings finally coming to life.
All in all, it's a pretty funny, if kinda short, movie, and people will at least recognise a few things that will wake the sweet cloud of nostalgia.
The only problem I have with the thing, apart from not getting the original voice actors, is the budget.
All of it looks pretty good, but I would have loved if even more versions of the Turtles were there. Imagine the original movie Turtles having a cameo or something!
Of course I do realise that this would be impossible to do on a non-super-big-hollywood-producion basis. So I forgive them.
They could have spend some extra money for the original actors and tunes though. I would've loved hearing the old tada-tada-dum-dum after a fight.
