TMNT got a few rave reviews, and more than a few bad ones. Allow me to state, for the record, that folks should quit player-hating and start participating. The animation is incredible, just really beautifully done, particularly the direction. The “camera work” creates a great sense of movement, making you feel like you’re on a ride instead of at the theater. The plot is silly but fun, and it stays true to the Turtles we remember and love. It’s definitely aimed at kids, which I think is a good thing — there’s no need to pack every kids movie with irony for the adults, especially when a lot of adults still have unabashed love for the Heroes in a Half Shell. I hope they catch on with kiddies today and there are lots of little Turtles running around this Halloween. Power Rangers get NO CANDY!
