When Splinter begins listing the ingredients of the 99-Cheese Pizza, he mentions Cheddar, Provolone, Asiago, Taleggio and Mozzarella; Michelangelo can not recognize Taleggio. Taleggio is a medium-soft cheese made in Val Taleggio (Taleggio Valley), part of the Lombardy region in North Italy. See more »

The film opens with an animated montage, reminiscent of the original TMNT comics. The film title appears at the end, with Leo's katana slicing through that. See more »
It took me 3 tries to get through the film... First off I grew up watching the TMNT when I was a kid... yes I'm old and not too jaded. I enjoyed Michael Bay's Transformers 1 & 3... 4 is awful. I loved the first TMNT live action movie and the recent CGI animated film... but this film is bad...
The script tries to give this film a 'modern' spin but it fails in having any logic in the film. 1. Why is the villain doing what they are doing? There's really no motive (no spoilers but you'll ask this when money is a motive but it really shouldn't be). 2. How do you learn ninjitsu through a book? 3. Why are there sexual innuendo's with the turtles and April? This is for kids? This is for adults? 4. Why is it snowing a couple of hours north away from New York City? Climate change isn't that bad. 5. How are turtles bulletproof? 6. The turtles lacked any character depth or traits. You need to go into the film knowing who the turtles are. 7. Where is the martial arts?
Overall the film started off exciting and then it was pointless and then there were some interesting action sequences... but there was a lack of any martial arts. Avoid.
