Trivia

Producer Michael Bay had stated that the Turtles in this film would be presented as having an extraterrestrial origin. This statement caused a great furor and was met with harsh criticism from much of the fanbase. However, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" co-creator Kevin Eastman expressed his support in the alien concept, saying he believes the concept to be "awesome!" and pointed out that the ooze that created the Turtles was in fact an alien substance.

Goofs

At the end of the movie when Michelangelo accidentally blows up Vern's new car he fires the missile at the rear of the car. The car flips end over end forward, but when it lands the rear end of the car is still facing them. Note the tail lights and open trunk. See more »

Quite possibly the worst turtles movie ever made
14 August 2014 | by (London Sweden) – See all my reviews

Story, presentation, originality, humor, character presentation and acting are all things obviously left unexplored in this epically abysmal 2014 installation of the turtles franchise.

The action sequences are bland but plentiful. Faithfulness to the original series is lost. Megan Fox acting is quite possibly the worst part of the movie, unbelievable and disconnected throughout.

With as many franchises that he shits on, I advice you to try to stay as far away as possible from anything Michael Bay touches in the future.

If you look at it objectively it's like a mash between most popular action films with extremely distinguishable parts taken from others. Combind that with a story so shallow and predictable that a 5 minute trailer video would be a more appropriate medium for this release. We mourn the times when action movies didn't make us cringe in every other scene.
