Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is uncomplicated fun, offering nothing new save for the sad novelty of seeing Megan Fox be treated like an actual human being.

Tries, and fails, to meld grit and froth. Still, at key moments it does possess a perverse sort of brio.

The repackaging of gleaming, empty, allowance-snaffling product. Were these Turtles ever anything else?

It ain't easy being green, especially as the charmless CG stars of this lowest-common-denominator action-comedy.

This is frankly disposable entertainment, but to some degree it's a welcome parody of earnest superhero movies like those directed by Christopher Nolan, which for all their self-importance are fundamentally just as silly.

In one way, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a triumph for producer Michael Bay in that it is equally as godawful as his Transformers: Age of Extinction and a hit nonetheless.
August 10, 2014
It's essentially a Transformers movie - a Michael Bay production complete with mass destruction, urban panic, white-hot lighting, inane quips, product placement, explosions and, well, Megan Fox.

I had to draw on my own ninja training and reflect intensively on the transitory nature of all phenomena, just to fend off the profound yearning for death.

It's pretty much business as usual: one personality trait per turtle (with the most screen time for party-dude Michelangelo), lots of wisecracks, plenty of thin-crust product placement (Pizza Hut this time around), and even a last-minute cowabunga.

Turtles fans might have been looking for their own Avengers. They get Alvin and the Chipmunks on performance enhancers and mass-market pizza instead. In Hollywood, history repeats first as farce, then as marketing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles doesn't so much provide brainless enjoyment as it pummels the viewer into submission. "Shell-shocked" is a reasonable description of the experience.
August 8, 2014
If you thought Michael Bay had forgiven Megan Fox for saying he was "like Hitler," this new April O'Neil role is proof he hasn't.
August 8, 2014
Instead of a fun and unchallenging limp down memory lane, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is an energy-sapping exercise in futility that will leave you begging for less.
August 8, 2014
For having gone to the trouble of making a self-descriptive movie called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, its producers seem ultimately unsure about its most basic concept.
August 8, 2014
The repartee, as ever, is weak. Even with all the extra layers of digital detail, it's still tough to keep these four straight.
August 8, 2014
The kind of cliched, misfit crimefighters-versus-demented villains scenario that Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird happily parodied when they came up with the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books way back in the 1980s.
August 8, 2014
There's enough turtle power to please kids and fans of the original series.
August 7, 2014
Cowabunga, dudes.
August 7, 2014
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a reboot that plays as if it were made from a starter kit. Everything comes right out of the 2014 blockbuster catalog.

Attached to this movie, the title no longer sounds zany; it looks like a series of keywords.
