The turtles looked pretty great and they all were voice-casted pretty spot-on except for Leo (Johnny Knoxville's voice just doesn't fit). They also are pretty excellent performances from the actors themselves, and they nailed the turtles personality-wise. From a story perspective, the plot isn't very exciting and is very basic. I hope they take a few more risks with the just-announced sequel...risks named Bebop and Rocksteady. And could someone at Marvel teach these guys how to do a post-credits tease (well, anyone but James Gunn)?

I really never felt invested in any of the characters, and there's barely a plot to speak of. Sure, there isn't much to a disaster movie, but even 'Twister' had a story and characters you cared about. 18 years its senior and it's still THE tornado movie you should be watching. Pass on this one until it hits Redbox!

It's tough to compare this to their last entry, 'Captain America: Winter Soldier', mainly because it's such a different type of movie. I really enjoyed all the humor, and surprisingly it was Drax who got as many laughs from me as Star-Lord. Groot also steals pretty much any scene he's in and Rocket Raccoon is pretty great with all of his banter with the other characters. It's hard to believe, and almost odd to me, that this now leads into 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', but I'll take it. It's another franchise for Marvel to add to their bag of tricks and just another great example of how to do a movie based on a comic book right. Will definitely need a second viewing!
