...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.

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.

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

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.

Kids will undoubtedly want to check out these new improved Turtles . . . and a lot of parents will probably be glad to have, uh, shelled out the extra bucks to relive their own childhoods alongside them.

Whenever the amphibians are in action, the film finds a rhythm that mixes punk graphic cool and merch-friendly visuals.

Almost every good scene in TMNT is an action sequence and a lot of time and thought has been put into them. So much in fact that none seems to have been spared for the story or any of the other characters.
September 21, 2010
The characters were no longer constrained by rubber suits or the laws of physics.
April 23, 2009
The plot's all over the place, but director Kevin Munroe keeps it at a hare's pace. The sharp graphics impress too. It's nothing to cow about, but it does, more or less, fill its shell.

The strongest ingredient remains the four reptiles' incorrigible charm, which easily outclasses a muddled storyline and concessions to the prepubescent male audience.
July 15, 2008
This mediocre computer-generated action flick is packed full of monsters and sword-fights, but the story-telling is about as deft as a turtle turned on its back, struggling to get up but going nowhere fast.
May 18, 2008
It won't convert the unfaithful but this messy, energetic action adventure is lurid fun, and may well re-ignite the popularity of the heroes in a half-shell.
March 3, 2008
It was a great decision to animate this feature film. The great decisions end there. Unfortunately, TMNT doesn't spend nearly enough time having fun.
November 13, 2007
Ageing fans of the originals with lowered expectations will have an okay-ish time.
October 31, 2007
Turtle power returns in routine kiddie adventure.

It's never, ever a good thing when the first trouble sign of a bad story comes in the opening scene.
September 12, 2007
Munroe's enthusiasm for the property and this particular film comes through in his informative feature commentary, and Warner Bros. has taken similar care in assembling this fully-loaded platter.
