Splinter: You are extraordinary, my sons. Unlike anything the world has ever seen. Bowed in greatness, destined to protect the people of New York!

Truly awful
29 December 2014 | by dunnypopSee all my reviews

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.
