The trailer of the latest reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released on Thursday and it did not fail to disappoint fans.
The CGI-based turtles look more creepy than cool. Watch the trailer below:
There are plenty of things to be annoyed about, says David Sims of The Wire:
"The often-wooden Megan Fox is not an exciting choice as plucky reporter April O'Neill. Shredder has been re-imagined from 'terrifying metal-clad Japanese ninja' to 'corporate villain played by William Fichtner' (although he does briefly eye a Shredder-style suit of armour).The turtles themselves are looming CGI monsters with creepy lips that no one would ever accuse of being adorable."
Here are some of the hate-tweets from fans, on the trailer:
I would prefer that the turtles stay in their shells for this one. #TMNTmovie

Seriously, if you can do gollum on the Big Screen right, you can do a much better job with TMNT #TMNTmovie
