WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

The city of New York is under a tight grip from the sinister Foot Clan and their leader, the Shredder. However, hope arises when four outcast brothers emerge from the sewers and team with eager reporter April O’Neil (Fox) and cameraman Vernon Fenwick (Arnett) to bring them down for the sake of the city – for they are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Nostalgia should play a huge part in this anticipated reboot of a childhood classic, and even though Michael Bay’s name may be on the producers’ credits it should still be a reminder as to why we loved those heroes in a half-shell in the first place.
