Watch: Honest Trailer For ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’

by Michael Lee

There are times were nostalgia makes us lose sight of remakes and reboots. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is one particular example. The first trilogy never really had a strong story, and only got weaker with the next two installments, but they where sure as hell fun to watch when we were kids, and that nostalgia still carries on to today. Now with the new Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we sort of see a similarity. Not particularly strong in the script department, and since it comes from Bay’s production house, it ruins our nostalgia of the four reptilian ninjas, but we forget that these movies aren’t meant for adults nor are they really here to remind us of the glory days.

So ScreenJunkies gives us yet another one of their Honest Trailers for the film. Hit the jump to check it out.

Like the trailer voiceover guy said, what the film gets right about the characters, gets everything else wrong about the film itself. The fan outrage caused the film to be reshoot when it was discovered that that William Fichter was suppose to be Shredder, when Shredder is actually Japanese. There is also the usual Michael Bay tropes like slow-mo action sequences, 360 camera pans, gratuitous amounts of product placement, and using Megan Fox as a model for sexual gratification during a film.

Whether or not you like the film, the video does bring up a good point about how we should just accept the fact that Michael Bay directed or produced films aren’t meant for us, they are meant for kids. So we should just sit back and watch the 80s and 90s cartoons, or just wait until a real director comes along and gets what we love about the two franchises right.
