Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles :: Movie Review
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back on the big screen in their fourth movie. Check out the Review of TMNT, the 2007 flick.
Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, busted onto the scene as a comic book in 1984 and became hugely popular! They got their own cartoon TV show, toys and even a hit movie where they battled the evil ninja Shredder and his Foot Clan minions. Now they’re crawling out of the sewers and back into theaters with the TMNT movie and it’s up to them to save New York from a 3,000 year-old menace! Here’s our TMNT movie review.
TMNT - Turtle Brothers vs. Ancient Warlords!
This movie starts off with the turtles in a serious slump since they busted Shredder’s way-too-spiky butt. Crime’s on the rise, they’re all picking their noses, a psycho vigilante named Nightwatcher is on the loose and Leonardo even booked it to Central America! On top of that, Max Winters, a 3,000 year old immortal warlord, is getting ready to unleash major magical mojo in New York. The turtle brothers have some serious problems, but April O’Neil and Casey Jones have their back, so it’s all good, right?
TMNT - Cowabunga Ninja Action!
Bring a spare pair of eyes to the theater cuz this movie’s gonna blow your first ones right outta your head! The turtles look awesome, there are a pack of crazy monsters, the action is sweet and there’s a fight scene in the rain that’s just gorgeous. All the voice actors are incredible too – from Sarah Michelle Gellar as April O’Neil to Patrick “Charles Xavier” Stewart as the villain and more. Plus, there’s serious drama about the turtle brothers, especially between Leo and Raph. They need a double dose of Dear Dish-It, stat!
TMNT - Stale Pizza and Party Poopin’ Problems
There’s one giant blunder in the TMNT movie – the thirteenth monster. Raphael runs into it at a diner and it’s a cute red critter. Then, later on the thirteenth monster shows up again and it’s a giant dino-porcupine thing. Huh? The final battle is a bit of a bummer too, it’s just not as exciting as it should be.
TMNT - Turtle Heroes or Brainless Brothers?
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back and they’re kicking butt! The TMNT movie isn’t perfect, but it’s a lot of fun, looks great, and has sequel written all over it. Just make sure you check it out in a theater that sells pizza!
