As a parent with young children, getting to the cinema is now a rarity so I was pleased when my 7 year old daughter asked to see the new Ninja Turtles film, and I happily obliged.
We should all know the story of the Ninja Turtles by now, so I don’t think this is a spoiler alert!
Four baby turtles and a rat are committed to the sewers following a fire in the lab where they are being experimented on, and after 15 years their genetic mutation has allowed them to evolve into nunchuck wielding acrobats, trained and mentored by their master Splinter (the rat).
The link between the turtles and the streets above is April (Megan Fox) a journalist who at first attempts to make the headlines with her story of 6ft vigilantes, yet no one believes her and she soon accepts that the secret is worth far much more.
An entertaining watch, and good fight scenes that have you wondering how much is CGI and how much are people in great green rubber suits.
This is a children’s film, yet there are plenty of innuendos in there which had me chuckling and my 7 year old thankfully missed them completely.
My only critique would be the repeated sexual advances on April by one of the turtles, that forced my mind into an X-rated vision of…….actually let’s not go there.
