    The castmembers portraying Splinter and the turtles achieve a persuasive level of realism that was never possible with the elaborate puppetry required for the original film series and adequately fulfill expectations for their characters.

    A consistently workmanlike helmer, Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans, Battle: Los Angeles) keeps the pace brisk and the overall tone closer to that of the recent G.I. Joe vehicles, infusing this glorified toy commercial with an almost aggressively knowing sense of humor and exactly one fun action sequence on New York’s most conveniently located mountaintop.

    Utterly inessential, this slightly cheap-looking reboot of the Turtles franchise is froth too — it might even be too tame for the kids who make up the target audience.

    If nothing else, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reminds us that nostalgia is often used as a mandate for spectacularly lazy filmmaking.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles isn’t a movie; it’s a brand re-launch that’s going to satisfy stockholders far more than it’s going to entertain the people who paid to watch it.

    The cloddish, confusing action scenes make no sense. Young viewers’ eyes will glaze from the first-person video-game style. Nonaction scenes feature people sniping at each other, or, in Arnett’s case, croaking out the script’s half-assed witticisms, until the Turtles show up.

I really enjoyed it. It has all the action you could want. It shows enough of a backstory on how and why the turtles are who they are. Then when we get to know them they give us some laughs like they are supposed to do. I will admit that I would have liked to have seen a little bit more from Will Arnett in this movie. I felt like he was great but didn't get enough screen time. This movie is going to make loads of money in the box office and I think its no fluke. I'm already eager to see the sequel as I'm sure that there will be one. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This film is a brainless, somewhat entertaining, generously short jog through the new Ninja Turtles' universe. It is supposed to be realistic, but it seems to take itself way too seriously, and ends up being a very confused picture. I wouldn't say it's a horrible movie, because it's really not, but I'd say it's a mixed bag. The animation is mostly fantastic and the banter between the turtles is surprisingly in character with what little was developed about them in this film or what you may know from previous incarnations of the brothers. The plot is uninspired and clunky, but makes for an unintentionally hilarious line from the pseudo-villain. Megan Fox is still a bad actress, but people seem to be attacking her on a personal level, and that's a bit uncalled for. Needless to say, she was bad in the movie, Will Arnett looks incredibly restrained and disinterested in the picture where William Fichtner is having a blast playing the stereotypical business man, and the turtles bounce lines off each other like a well played game of wall-ball. This is a mixed bag because without the great banter between the turtles, and the clever new backstory, this would be just another bad movie. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. If you grew up with the TMNT series in the 1900s, this would be like watching someone funny you like getting stabbed in the Heart and have the murderer throw his blood and guts IN your face and go "HES NO MORE". If you grew up with the 2004 version of TMNT, it will be like having somebody you looked up to and wanted more future people to be like get cut up and get worn by the killer and try to make some Money out of the flesh suit by trying to act as if hes the "new and better" version of that person. The turtles i remember was allways fighting Ninjas with Ninja weapons against enemies that also used Ninja weapons and used masks like hired assassins. This movie takes those iconic footmen and turns them into TERRORISTS WITH GUNS, WHO TAKES HOSTAGES AND USES C4 IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY. All that about the turtles learning from their masters moves that he learned from hes master/had when he was human, has turned into a plot convinience with him finding a book about the samurais ways IN A SEWER!!. AND IT DOSEN'T END THERE! instead of the turtles fighting all kinds of random bandits, you know, the purple dragons who was kinda of a big deal in the 2004 version? NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. Now Theres only the "footclan" to fight. Don't Waste your time unless you wanna see how badly michael bay can fu** up your childhood icons. Expand
