  • Teenagers, even non-ninjas and non-turtles, have been eating up this cinematic waste product for weeks now. In one way, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a triumph for producer Michael Bay in that it is equally as godawful as his "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and a hit nonetheless. show more

  • The narrative is a mess, and the overly long action sequences are easily forgotten. show more

  • Is there a word that means the opposite of Cowabunga? If so, that's the word for the charmless, dull and derivative new take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. show more

    Great to see Megan Fox back on the big screen. Will Arnett made this movie worth watching.

    So I brought my 6 year old to see this movie. He was educated on TMNTs by my grown nephew by watching the previous movies, cartoons, etc. He loved the movie and I thought it was pretty good. That may be because they now serve beer at my theater. 3 beers later and I was able to tolerate Megan Fox's "acting." Lest we forget Ms Oneal was a ginger.

    First and foremost let me start by stating that I am a 30 year old male, who grew up in NYC watching the Ninja Turtles as a kid, day in and day out. Till’ this day I remember the feeling I used to get when I was a kid who truly believed that Ninja Turtles were real. Watching the show, playing with the action figures, and converting my bedroom into the sewer and fighting off the mighty foot-clan with my imaginary brothers, Leo, Donnie, Raph, and Mikey; these are some of the greatest memories I have as a kid. I have seen every TMNT movie and the entire original series, as well as the new series that is on NICKELODEON which is actually pretty damn good. It’s safe to say that I LOVE anything Ninja Turtles related. So I was a little disappointed if not saddened by most, if not all the reviews this film is getting. It seems to me that people reviewing the film, went in with the mentality that this film was just another screw up and just ran with that attitude from beginning to end. It seems like most people are concerned with bashing the director than actually appreciating what this film truly does. But me on the other hand, I want to THANK Michael Bay and anyone else who had a hand in making this film. I’m not a huge Bay fan at all but I’m not an “Anti-Bay” a-hole like most of the people who reviewed the film on various websites, magazines and newspapers. I can truly say that this film was spectacular from the opening scene, until the very end. Each TURTLE had his own identity, from Leo being the serious leader, to Raph being the attitude having rebel, the ever-so-geeky Donnie to the fun loving carefree Mikey. Yes they changed the story some, and added a few new ideas, but they did not change what the TURTLES represent. It’s been a long time since a movie made me feel like a kid again, something some of us are “too grown” to feel (I call it being a pretentious tight-ass, but that’s just me). You remember that little kid that believed in Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Boogie-Man (Not Me the TURTLES always had my back), let him out for about an hour and forty-one minutes, and I promise you won’t regret it. COWABUNGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
