Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem
Mutant turtle brothers Donatello (Micha Abbey), Raphael (Brady Noon), Michelangelo (Shaman Brown Jr.), and Leonardo (Nicholas Cantu) have been raised to avoid humans and stay hidden in the sewers, but despite all that, the long for a normal teenage life. When they meet April O'Neil (Ayo Edebiri) by chance, they decide to team up to stop the mysterious Super Fly (Ice Cube) from terrorizing the city so people will see them as heroes and ultimately accept them.
I grew up with TMNT and have seen many variations throughout the years. This is definitely one of my favorite ones. The animation is like someone's sketch book came to life. The jagged lines and chaotic style really suit what they have going on here. Plus, the turtles actually feel like teenagers, which is something that has been missing for a while. I'm used to them either feeling like adult frat boys or 10 year olds.
I love the voice actors they chose, they suit their parts well and Ice Cube as the villain was so fun. The story is very predictable, you can always tell where it's headed and you can even predict the after credits stinger, but it's still a fun time at the movies.
