Fun, entertaining movie full of special effects and tornado's out of control. The story follows a group of storm chasers that eventually get side-tracked helping a man find his son who is trapped and a school that is about to be demolished by one of the biggest tornado's ever recorded. Think twist 2014. Sarah Wayne Callies stars (Lori from The Walking Dead). She is the Helen Hunt figure.
I really enjoyed this movie! I don't know why it's being torn apart by reviews, nor do I give a shit, probably because it's Megan Fox and Michael Bay. I normally need more than special effects for a Michael Bay movie to win me over but this movie was well done, Transformers 3 was atrocious. Sure Megan Fox was mediocre at best as April O'Neil and always looks immaculate (but needs to tone down on plastic surgery, she's pretty and doesn't need any more) the movie is about the Turtles. It was a lot less campy than the early 90's turtles, but still had lots of jokes, light parts, sad parts, pizza, and other references. I don't usually praise a Michael Bay movie but this was awesome, if you love the Turtles you will love it, I personally thought they looked great. Shredder was sick, each turtle still had their characteristic traits that we know and love from childhood, not to mention the 3D which gives the movie a whole extra star, It was the best 3D movie i've seen in theatres since Avatar! I want to go see it again!! It felt like you were in the movie, The snow scene, the parts when they are going through the tunnels, the rooftop scenes, the opening scene in 3D all incredible! I waited for a few things (Casey Jones, Krang) all characters that will probably get revealed in sequels if made. I can't wait for a sequel (if they make one) It's hollywood I'm sure they will....
We went to see this due to positive reviews and caved under the pressure on cheap night and thought "what the hell". Not my type of movie a bit too weird and the campy comedy did not resonate with me really. I'm sure the majority of the masses will like it, I'm not the majority, don't base your opinion on this review, the movie is definitely an acquired taste.
I saw this movie for free at home and it was basically what I imagined; piddly, boring and un-interesting. I didn't even have the pleasure of jumping once from a cheap scare and there was nothing remotely scary about this movie at all, what I find scary is that 74% of critics liked it on Flixter and it made 40 million at the box office.......i don't get it. At least i didn't pay money to see it, although i did waste an hour and 45 minutes of my life
Lucy was a mindf*ck. It was entertaining, interesting and fun to watch and had a lot of neat effects. Scarlett Johansson was great in the movie. It reminded me a bit of "Limitless" with Bradley Cooper. The movie focus's around "Lucy" who gets mixed up with a crime boss, things take a turn for the worst; taking shape for the rest of what the movie will be. You begin to see the different stages of her brain capacity starting at 5% and gets higher and higher. The film says that we've only advanced to the point of utilizing 10% of our brains' capabilities and Dolphins 20%. I would of liked it to be a bit longer and had Scarlett kicking more ass, although it has it's moments.
