The "heroes in a half shell" are back in action with a new movie and an old plot: The Foot Clan is on the loose and who are you going to call? That's right - Shredder is making life difficult for the residents of New York City. To the rescue are Splinter and his adopted, mutated sons - Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael.
Oh, and Megan Fox. As reporter April O'Neil, Fox does what does she best. I'm just not quite sure what that might be. I don't think it's acting, certainly nothing past Acting 101. She's joined by Will Arnett, who provides mild comic relief. The lone standout human actor is William Fichtner, who - MILD SPOILER ALERT - plays The Bad Guy Behind The Bad Guy (Shredder).
