This was OK. As much as people anticipated this movie would be terrible, knowing that Michael Bay is PRODUCING this movie, this wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Megan Fox was fine as April O' Neil, the Turtles and Splinter were good, Shredder was an OK villain with a very sinister look, the action was actuallly knida well done and the story was decent.
Will Arnett and William Fitchner's performances were underwhelming and could be done while sleeping, "respectively". Though the movie was fun, some of the humour didn't make me laugh (specifically the sexual humour) and came out as somewhat predictable. And some of the lines weren't very memorable.
Even though it's based on a graphic novel, it's a great re-imagining of the superhero genre, though the character development falls slightly short once the sex comes in, and the story turns ridiculous once the third act begins.
This could have at least been as good as the first movie, but as always what the trailer shows can actually be WAY better than the film should have been. While the human characters and acting was surprisingly better than the last movies and the darker tone and the visual effects were decent, the film's action and explosions (which makes up 80% of the movie) is actually quite boring. The performances of Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor were just terrible, and there is a minimal amount of plot to deserve having this much action. The script from Ehren Kruger, who clearly should be fired by now, is also underwhelming and predictable. For a Transformers, this was the most disappointing.
