TMNT

Critics Consensus

TMNT's art direction is splendid, but the plot is non-existent and the dialogue lacks the irony and goofy wit of the earlier Ninja Turtles movies.

  • The characters look like plastic dolls, and the story is recycled sci-fi.

  • ...while the visuals are terrific, the plot is a distracting clunker that feels like it was written one line at a time by a bunch of overexcited fan-board commentators playing a round-robin storytelling game.

  • A passable brand rebooting exercise that will impress younger kids even if it doesn't satisfy older fans.

  • What remains is intensely numbing action scenes, poor plot machinations and joyless character sketches all rendered in exquisitely cold CGI.

  • Words cannot easily express how profoundly unrewarding it is to revisit the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

  • I guess if you read the comic strip and you played the video games and you watched the TV show and dug the earlier movies, you'll dig this new version. For me, I didn't do any of that stuff.

    Being a big fan of the cartoons I felt kind of let down with this whole animation movie and the voice cast, The story wasn't great too but it was nice to see them make a comeback but that's about all I could take away from this movie.

    What an utterly ridiculous, poorly made and unnecessary film TMNT was! Above everything else, was the dishearteningly overwhelming lack of originality. The premise has been repeated more times than a photo of a girl in high-waisted denim shorts on Tumblr. Not to mention the fact that they make the assumption you know exactly what's going on with the Turtles and their backstories and their friends and their relationships and their characteristics and their universe, and then go on to complete throw out their source material anyway, and come up with a new bad guy and make the old bad guys good? I've had an on-again-off-again relationship with Turtles for the better part of my entire life and even I thought it was convoluted and ridiculous. Fuck, at least it wasn't a remake, they've got that going for them. But it's all so inanely serious that TMNT loses the self-referential humour and parody that it always sought to emulate. And let's be honest, something with a title like "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" with "Foot Ninjas" and "Secret Ooze" is not really the sort of thing you'd think you'd be meant to take seriously. The animation itself is just woeful Far below the standards we would come to expect of high budget movies even in 2000, let alone 2007. There's some monsters that look okay (eg. above), but we know virtually nothing about them, and their totally indistinguishable from the antagonist's henchmen. It's a bad Super Hero movie, a bad Sci-Fi, a bad Kids film, a bad action, it basically has no place in the cinematic world. The characters who are supposed to be the more moral of the bunch are nothing but hypocritical, at least Raphael acknowledges he's an asshole, and he does very well at it. The film wrestles to notch some love and money back into the franchise, but instead flops down nice and neatly into the category of Astro Boy (in fact, there's a ridiculous amount of similarities between the two) as a failure that's best forgotten by the majority, but even slightly worse. I'm sure some will get enjoyment out of the film, but I see difficulties in it really appealing to any but the simplest of tastes. 21% -Gimly

    The Turtles return to the big screen in the animated film TMNT. The story follows a rich tycoon who hires the Foot clan to collect a group of 13 monsters from another dimension; meanwhile Leonardo returns from training in South America and attempts to reunite his Ninja Turtle brothers. Featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Chris Evans, Ziyi Zhang, and Patrick Stewart, the voice cast is pretty good. The animation is also fairly solid, though some of it is a little rigid and wooden. Still, the action is done especially well and finally allows the Turtles to let loose their ninja skills in some very dynamic fight sequences. TMNT can be a bit corny at times, but it's entertaining and fun too.

    Utter trash, the animation was ugly as hell, storyline was non-existence, villains were too weak, lack of actions.
