‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Trailer: Cowabunga Good Or Cowabunga Bad?

The first trailer for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film is here and I’m not mad at it. YOU may be upset with the Bay-ification of the beloved crime fighters but I’m feeling it. Gone are the dopey rubber suits of the 1990′s film and here, amongst shots left over from Transformers: Rise of the Fallen, are impressive CGI turtles who can move like actual ninjas. There’s no way around this being a weird film, but I feel like we need to applaud Bay’s restraint here. The fact that the first preview doesn’t feature anything racially offensive shows progress. Bay is really maturing.
