TMNT 2007 doesn't get nearly enough credit. It's a nice, low-key reboot. The animation is a little "Disney Channel" for my tastes, but they got just about everything else right.
I tried to like the new movies and I just couldn't do it. It's almost as if these things are geared towards children or something. Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman did make me LOL though.
naww man. I've watched the 2nd one a couple a times in the past 10 years and it holds up. Sure, it's not as great and thoughtful as the first one, but the 2nd ones more comedic and sensational. That fight scene at the beginning is epic. Seeing that turtle take out a gang full of criminals with a yo-yo? It doesn't get any better than that as far as I'm concerned.
