Megan discusses April's character & how her ass kicking scene ended up on the cutting room floor:
It’s all very….goofy. Don’t go in to ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’
and expect ‘Batman Begins.’ This really is a kids movie and, from what

some of the earlier materials), but that’s not even one of the film’s
In the context of the film, the turtles look fine. The
mo-cap is done really well and while they don’t look like the classic
Turtles of old, they’re not what’s holding the film back. One thing that really did take us out of the moment was the voice of Johnny Knoxville, who, with his Tennessee drawl, just doesn’t have the right sound for Leonardo – the no-nonsense leader of the team.
