Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

What is it? Four mutated ninja turtles are all that stands between New York’s destruction at the hands of an evil crime lord and a mysterious warrior called Shredder.

Director Jonathan Liebesman has recreated our heroes in a halfshell to be bigger, meaner and certainly tougher than the original 1997 film and for the most part is successful in creating a fun and entertaining movie (as long as you don’t focus too much on the script). Using CGI that deserves a nod and some decent voice acting, the movie moves at pace ‘EXTREME’ for a relatively short 101 minutes, which is perfect for a plot as thick as last night’s cold pizza.

With fight scenes reminiscent of Transformers in scale, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles swings between intense action and comedy easily for a fun experience that is sadly rather forgettable. Die-hard TMNT fans will come away disappointed as the re-imagining is rather far removed from the 1997 movie but if you are up for a new era you will find that a ton of fun is to be had.
