    Silly, but an enjoyable, well-paced fantasy-action story. show more

    It takes more than an awkward title attempting to sound cool to overcome its mundane plot and silly dialogue. show more

    TMNT has a cool, noirish sheen. There's an attention to detail in the visuals and sound design that pushes it up several notches above most kiddie fare. It's not art, dude, but it will do. show more

    At its best, TMNT does recall the slangy fun of the series' glory days. But there are too many moments when it feels as stale as one of Mikey's half-eaten pizzas. show more

    A tad too conservative and calculated. CGI delivers best on moody sets and a noirish atmosphere achieved by lighting, backgrounds and visual effects. But the characters look like plastic dolls, and the story is recycled sci-fi. show more

    The movie is a serviceable way to pass the time: Kids will cheer the bright colors and funny new words ("Kowabunga!"). show more

    With your sharper minds, you'll probably figure it out. I hope so. Hope you'll like the movie too. But here's a bit of advice: Don't bet your allowance on it. Make Daddy pay. show more

    The movie pretty much exists to sell tie-in products, and it's about as entertaining as watching little kids playing with their toys in the sandbox. show more

    Bummer, dudes. Longtime fans who expect the fun lingo and pizza-gobbling Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of the past may be shocked by director Kevin Munroe's reimagining of the popular kiddie series. show more

    Without the brute vigilante junk, this 82-minute picture would be approximately 2 minutes long. show more

    All I can say is that the movie is not as good as the first two live action TMNT movies. It at least is not like TMNT3. I give it 3 out of 5.

    Whomever it was that argued that Splinter's voice wasn't properly cast; You are way off. I'm curious as to who you would have chosen instead. The late (died 7/06) great Mako was an extremely smart choice as he has an immense background in voice over character roles, and almost 80 live-action films. His latest work was in "Avatar: The Last Airbender" as "Uncle Iroh", which is the smartest, best written cartoon/animation out there on cable television. I'm not even a "TMNT" fan and I initially went to see the movie because I knew he was the voice behind Splinter. Luckily I walked out of the theatre accompanied by my fanboy boyfriend and 6 y/o son in tow with a fantastic movie still reeling in our heads. The older generations who lack imagination or any kind of child-within is unfortunately detached from the fun or funny stuff aside from giggling at the neighbors bad curtains while secretly screwing their husbands, or an old fart popping pills and drinking whiskey walking around as elitist as he can be, Mr.Schmutzncrotch. Hey folks, drag the sticks and stones, or enema bags outta your arse and chill out. Kate
