Just a few days ago I was in a position of extremely trivial power. I had seen the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and most anybody else who might care even a little bit had not.
Well, that’s well and truly over now. Here’s a… well, it looks like a cinema standee, or a banner of some kind. It was snapped and posted to the web by Comic Book Therapy.
That was just standing around at some Toy Fair so it was inevitable that it was going to end up online. Note that it says only Ninja Turtles. No mutant. No teenage.
And so now we’ve all seen what they look like. I liked it much more when there was at least some mystery. All we have now is…
…well, some CG turtles. And that’s not anything like as appealing as mystery, is it?
Director Jonathan Liebesman has yet to make any kind of interesting or worthwhile film. If he manages to grasp even half of what made up Eastman and Laird’s original intent for the Turtles he’ll be onto a career best.
