August 6, 2014
Despite brisk direction by Steve Barron, plus unbridled energy and fine special effects, an overt glorification of violence is still at the crux of this stunt film.
February 9, 2006
Between the dubbed dialogue and the dark visuals, the cumulative effect is curiously dislocating.
August 6, 2014
A movie that displays two traits nobody would ever associate with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: It is grim and it is no fun.

This movie is nowhere near as bad as it might have been, and probably is the best possible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie.

Elias Koteas scores as a mock-turtle vigilante, and there are some nifty turtle effects from the Henson Creature Shop, but little else hits the target, despite Barron covering the cracks with fast editing.

Panderingly kid-centric and obnoxious commercialism at its most profitable.

Joins the limited but infamous ranks of Comics Characters Who Never Should've Gotten Their Own Live-Action Movie.

Ninja Turtles is cluttered and flashy. In terms of plot, there's not much flesh on its bones.

As a movie, Ninja Turtles would make a better cereal. It looks like it needs a little milk and mother-wit poured over it, something to make it snap, crackle and pop.
May 3, 2011
...an uneven, needlessly episodic adaptation that simply isn't able to justify its feature-length running time.
