It's been quite a while since the turtles had a movie, and in their 3d form, they're a lot more agile, adept, muscular and endearing. Although a lot of fans were disappointed when they heard shredder wasn't in it, but credit to the director for taking it in a new direction - and hey, there's always potenital for a well earned sequel. I saw this film with 3 other lads, and it all scored well for us, more particularly for those who grew up with the show. From a technical standpoint, the camera work is great, and animation believable, the monsters are really actually cool plus the plot turns are well thought out, you really feel for the characters. On a side note, I would have liked to have seen one of the turtles get really bashed up, but then the kids wouldn't have, so...anyway the drama keeps you watching.
I do feel that our fellow sensei character didn't feature enough in this film, but it's understandable owing to the fact that the story is about the re-uniting of the turtles, and how Leonardo learns to direct himself and his brothers, and not someone else. Thus, there's a good family and team message to top it all off.
Personally, I enjoyed the sarcasm and humour, especially from our abounding Michelangelo, plus a funny montage from Donatello. I rather hope they make another sequel in 3D, because I'll be pre-ordering this today and reliving the fantasy of my childhood as I put in on to play - let's just hope they put some decent extras in to a 2-disc version!
