I more or less grew up with comic books. TMNT came out in the mid-80s and was high up on my list of favorites. In the 90s, there were a couple of live-action movies that did justice to the turtles.

Here we are, almost 15yrs later, and I'm taking my son to see the same green shelled-ninjas that I followed when I was a kid. He loved it. I really enjoyed it. The CGI was fantastic. Extremely well done. And it only took a couple of seconds to forget you were looking at something generated inside a computer. Sure, it dragged once or twice, but my expectations were set on a comic level, and I wasn't disappointed.

Liam knew all the characters already and we had a great time talking about the martial moves and the weapons. He was out of his seat half the time. Throwing punches at the screen. Offering words of advice on battle tactics and close quarters combat.

Popcorn, soda, and a great movie. Perfect way to spend an afternoon.
