With all the teleportation and various exchanges by Shredder and Krang plus the transformation of two animal mutants in Bebop and Rocksteady, t’is indeed some fantasy film — as if you still haven’t had enough of the turtles themselves.
Then again, is there improvement on the prosthetics of the turtles? They actually look more human now, still, let’s first take a glimpse of the underground world ot these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles..
Okay, their battles were a bit so, so. And just like other mutant films, say X-Men, the story somehow touches on being human. On living ‘normal’ lives. On not living in isolation or hiding anymore. Of being accepted by society. Don’t you think such a plot is getting worn off?
Equality is only good if everybody is fed well. Everybody. That is in all corners of the earth. Got the point?
So how about a plot that would make humans better people — through some kind of influence by mutants themselves, you know? Speaking of making this world a better place, that story line would be nicer. After all, fantasy films of this kind has a lot of ‘pull’ especially among youngsters.
See. Technology has made the world what it is today. Subtly a sorry sight.
Morality is sinking fast while greed and selfishness has risen to the heights of Noah’s time. And if you don’t hear chaos, there’s actually always been instigations of war — whether through taunts or supplying of arms. Also despite idealistic visions by supposed world leaders and billionaires — a better life for an ordinary earthling remains a dream. Why? The focus has been geared towards equality when there are those who does not even have housing or potable water. See?
Perhaps the turtles could do something about housing and water potability. Hey, they live underground — so they should know! Hah!
