It looks like a Michael Bay trailer despite him not directing it.

So yes, awful.

Guys, they're anthropomorphic turtles being rendered in CGI with the goal of making them photorealistic. How the fuck were they supposed to look?

That said, at least Bay always had skill with action scenes. Liebesman, by contrast, proved with Battle:LA that he has all the editing skill of a raccoon on bath salts. And the action in this trailer leaves me similarly underwhelmed with how little of anything I can make out. Also, I'm still not sold on Megan Fox as April O'Neil.

Then again, this is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Everything about this property is so over-the-top goofy that I can't imagine why anyone could take it seriously. It worked in the 80s because that was when they embraced the silliness of the concept. But now they're trying to make it all edgy and gritty and realistic, in line with most other superhero properties we're getting? I'm sorry, I just don't see how that can possibly work.

And yes, I know that TMNT started out as a dark and gritty superhero parody. But that was before Watchmen and TDKR came along, making superhero satire/parody so huge that it's become passe.

It's impossible to do because they're just going to fall into the uncanny valley, which is what happened. The 90s Turtle costumes still look better than this.

William Fichtner is awesome. Your argument is invalid.

This question, on the other hand, is entirely warranted.

He looks cool until he starts talking and the uncanny valley kicks in.
