TMNT (Movie)
A man in a funny costume can fly and fights crime. A young boy befriends a giant robot from outer space. A bunch of turtles mutate after being exposed to radioactive slime and become ninjas battling 3,000-year-old stone warriors. All of these ideas may seem ludicrous at first, but both comic books and animation allow for an amazing amount of suspension of disbelief if done well.

Eastman and Laird's comic book combined humour and grit, pulp magazine fantasy and strong character interaction in a way that caught people's imagination. And now, we finally have a movie adaptation that lives up to the original.

The art, animation and voice acting are a big part of that, but in the end, it all boils down to a good, fun story. The people who worked on this realized that it's not enough to have the rights to a popular franchise, you have to do something with it that the fans will like, and they did. —René Walling
