Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Critics Consensus

Neither entertaining enough to recommend nor remarkably awful, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may bear the distinction of being the dullest movie ever made about talking bipedal reptiles.

Movie Info

Spawned from a lab experiment gone awry, teenage terrapins Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael live in the sewers beneath New York. Although their rodent sensei, Splinter, advises against showing themselves above ground, the justice-loving, pizza-eating brothers can't stand idly by while evil Shredder and his minions terrorize the city. With help from intrepid reporter April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and her cameraman (Will Arnett), the Turtles set out to save New York.

    What this movie shows is that if you try to combine the dark and gritty feel of the original comicbooks and the funny humor of the television series, you get something that just shouldn't exist. This is a movie that I think I would have enjoyed so much more if I was still a child and I really love these turtles, so that really shouldn't be the case. And let's all be honest: this is not a ninja turtles movie; this is an April O'Neil movie featuring the ninja turtles and that REALLY SHOULD NEVER EXIST!! Megan Fox is really not good in the movie and that's not good when she is the leading character in the film. Much of her story really didn't fit with me at all. When the turtles come in, however, is where the movie really shines, because they really manage to bring the humor to the screen which is something that Fox was never able to do. This is a really bad movie that has some good points, but in the end, it's a failure on so many different levels.

    The basic old fart jokes and then the explosions hidden in the movie called the turtles to stay in their home unless a good movie of theirs come out..

    Jonathan Liebesman dishes out the plain old cheese pizza in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Sliding in at a mere 90 minutes, it is a quick viewing. Aside from a mediocre 15 minute opening, the pace picks up and moves at a quick stride the rest of the way. The problem is that the back-story is poor, the characters aren't built up, and the plot details are too simple for its own good. A ton of action explodes its way onto the screen. Highly stylized and heavy reliance on CG is both its shining moment and downfall. The CG allows for some adrenaline packed material, but at the same time, there isn't enough down-to-earth martial arts choreography. The mixture of CG and real life characters don't work all that well. Megan Fox and Will Arnett have terrible characters and too much screen time in comparison to the real stars of the show, the 4 turtles. Thanks to the lack of time focused on the turtles, the voice-work takes getting used to; however, it is much better than watching any of the human characters. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has its ups and downs leaving a picture that just slides on by.

    An enjoyable and entertaining action-fantasy flick, but Megan Fox was again a case of bad casting.
