Trivia

This is the second life-action movie of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to feature an overt reference to The Karate Kid (1984). In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991), Michaelangelo imitates the "wax on, wax off" scene; in this movie, Raphael carves a statue from a wooden block, displaying a character doing the 'Crane' position.

Goofs

In the final showdown with Shredder, Leonardo throws one of his katanas at Shredder, which falls to the ground with Shredder. However, throughout the rest of the scene Leo still has two katanas on his back. See more »

Quite possibly the worst turtles movie ever made
14 August 2014 | by vercia-poanceSee 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.
