Under the influence of Michael Bay, Jonathan Liebesman deploys a beautiful messy energy.

Released in the summer of 2014 at the cinema, Ninja Turtles will return at 9:05 p.m. on NRJ12. Critical feedback has been very mixed, ninja reptile fans have been disappointed, yet the ninja turtle reboot produced by Michael Bay is indeed a cool movie. As long as you like the big popcorn movies shot with hormones from the director of Transformers, which aim at entertainment above all.

Michael Bay: “I get paid to be the best, and that’s what I try to be”

The heroes are therefore ninja turtles. Read this sentence again. Turtles. Ninja. The original comic book, created in 1984 by Kevin Eastman and Petier Baird Laird, is a gently parody of Daredevil – turtles turn humanoids in the crash that killed Matt Murdock – and designed to be a one shot. The success has largely exceeded the parody and schoolboy intention of Eastman and Laird, but the fact remains: we tell the adventures of humanoid turtles, endowed with words, mastering the martial arts. Impossible to take seriously. It’s okay, there’s nothing to do, you might as well assume it to death – which is what the reboot does.

OK, there are a lot of flaws in the Ninja Turtles from 2014. Bad Megan Fox, random artistic direction, non-existent script, systematic soliciting … But there is cinema, and good, as we write in our review of the film, supported by a flamboyant and super-heroic score by Brian Tyler (the excellent soundtracks of Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3): “The journalist April O’Neil investigates the Clan Foot, a mafia that wants to rule the New York crime world. On this occasion, she discovers that four vigilantes, humanoid mutant turtles, are already ready to do battle with the ‘Organization. Ninja turtles? Even if you are not a child of the 80s, the concept is so nanar and catchy that you will not be able to avoid bringing your offspring in. At the risk of offending the handful of purist fans of the heroes. vintage, the film is not bad. Jonathan Liebesman is here at his best level, after the terrible World Invasion – Battle Los Angeles and the already most successful The Wrath of the Titans. Thanks to whom? To producer Michael Bay of course. The influence of the director of Transformers, the filmmaker deploys a beautiful messy energy, all enhanced with a good dose of cynicism. Some choices are questionable, such as focusing on the story of April, but it does st that there is cinema in Ninja Turtles, and good. In particular the time of a mad chase between trucks along a snow-covered road, during which the notions of time and space are subjected to the delusions of the scenario. “
