No, ninja. No, ninja. NO
4 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a MAJOR ninja turtles fan I was very disappointed in this movie. But I feel like I should give my two-cents on the first 2 movies.

The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a classic movie for any fan. It has action, adventure, comedy, drama and everything that can be expected. And the effects are AMAZING. You actually feel like those are EXACTLY what the live action turtles would look like. Yes it can be silly (I mean teenage mutant ninja turtles) but that's why this movie can have a lasing influence. There was a passion behind it and it really shines in the movie. 9/10 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Secret of the Ooze was a very good sequel to the first one. Yes it was a bit underplayed and was less violent then the first one but it is still very enjoyable. It's a good cheesy movie and very memorable. It had the action, adventure and comedy that can be expected. I recommend this to all fans. 9/10

Then we come to this...abomination, for lack of a better word. This movie is just bad. Well bad doesn't even describe it. It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. There is no atmosphere, no character development, no story, no effort, no...ANYTHING! It's painful to even sit through. Avoid this movie. Pretend it doesn't exist and just watch the first two movies. 1/10

If you want to see a review before watching, or even after watching to find out how bad this is, I recommend you-tube "The Angry Video Game Nerd: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." It gives you a great breakdown of what is wrong with this 3rd TMNT movie while still discussing why the the first 2 are good movies. This review is more entertaining then this movie. So basically, avoid this movie at all costs!
