Trivia

Raphael displays some artistic talent, showing knitting and woodcarving skills in the film. This was taken from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012), where he had shown painting skills. See more »

Goofs

If the mutagen in the turtles' blood was so precious that the Foot needed to take three turtles, why not take Splinter too? After all, his blood has mutagen in it too, and taking three turtles rather than one suggests every ounce of mutagen is valuable. See more »

Missing the Hero
1 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

When we are children, there is a toy we love above all others, that is a holy grail of imagination and enjoyment. For me that was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I loved the TV and toys so much, and the films still hold a special place in my heart. So here we have a reboot, This will not end well. OK, let me get over my own personal hang ups towards the film straight away. It's not the Turtles I knew and loved, it's not the same premise, it's not the same message ideas and for this reason alone the film should not be watched or tolerated by anyone. Ever. I can't guarantee this side of me won't return later in this review but for now, I'm going to try and judge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as best I can without bringing in my personal feelings for the product. The Turtles Movie Is a film that attempts to have it's cake and eat it. It wants the integrity and prestige of the original movies and cartoons, but it wants massive set pieces and unoriginal thinking. That's the main problem with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we have seen it all before. There is nothing to make the movie stand out and be proud of itself, I mean in truth there is nothing horrifically wrong with it enough to make me angry, but considering what the film had to work with I just wanted something more remarkable.

The plot is the same plot of any superhero film, Hero's exists, are hidden from the world, a super villain wants to do something bad, they have to come out of hiding to defend the city they love. That's the other thing; that considering the film is just over an hour and half, there isn't a whole lot of action in it, nor is there much comedy or anything else, the entire thing just kind of runs together without any kind of variety. I think that the films blandness is really what comes to the front of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I just never felt like I really knew anything about the Turtles that made them personally unique, or why Shredder had any ties to their past, the film never goes into detail about anything. I could overlook the look of the turtles themselves if they had enough character, but simply put they don't. This is a travesty that cannot be forgiven. It's not even like we see the turtles fight the nameless foot soldiers that much either. There is a sequence in the middle of the movie, where there is a chase and an escape for the turtles, each turtle is used in turn to achieve a goal but instead of looking spectacular or impressive the sequence just looks messy. Now, I am fully aware that for a child who has never seen the turtles or is just a young kid, this film will be engaging and exciting and fun, but that isn't who I am or how I watch the movie. Also the inner film references in the movie are just lazy. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a bit of big dumb inoffensive fun. However I'm predjudist against a film that would do this to my childhood so it's still awful.
