A giant egg is unearthed at a construction site and soon opened, releasing the terrible Ivan Ooze, who wreaks vengeance on Zordon for imprisoning him millennia ago. With Zordon dying and their powers lost, the Rangers head to a distant planet to find the mystic warrior Dulcea.
Johnny Yong Bosch,
Through contact with a mysterious substance, called Ooze, 4 little turtles in the canalization of New York mutate to giant turtles. They can speak, walk upright and love pizza. The wise rat Splinter becomes their mentor and educates them to Ninja fighters. Their arch-enemy is the bad, bad guy Shredder, who struggles to gain power over the world. Of course the ninja turtles will do everything to stop him.Written by

Much more than just a series of small, isolated incidents, it's now apparent that an organized criminal element is at work and at the moment, business is good. So good in fact that there appear to be no eyewitnesses to any of these crimes. With complaints ranging from purse snatching to breaking and entering, police switchboards have been swamped with the angry voices of more and more citizens who have fallen prey to the recent surge of crime that continues to plague the city. ...

The film title appears from behind the corner of the sewer, just before the Turtles come around it and are fully seen for the first time. See more »
German theatrical version was based on the cut British version. In addition it was heavily dimmed and cartoon-like sound effects were added to the fight scenes. This version was also used for TV airings and VHS home video releases. Only in 2010 the film was released uncut on DVD. See more »
This movie is an oddity, and I mean this in a totally positive way. When I was young I watched the cartoon, I saw the film as a kid too and liked it. What I've realised today is it's really a film for kids and adults alike, offering enjoyable action scenes and hilarious humour while also providing a surprisingly dark narrative. The feelings of loss, and the importance of family are ever present in this film and the Turtles play the part to perfection, leaving you to empathize with their state while the villains are brutal and merciless, offering no compassion or remorse. It's a classic tale of good verses evil and right verses wrong. The characters in this film are all extremely likable; the creature effects are surprisingly good and with so many scenes playing out so well it's hard not to enjoy the whole package. Many critics disagree, but this movie rocked when I was a kid, and it still rocks today! Cowabunga dudes!
