A live-action Turtles movie actually kind of worked. I'm surprised.

Satisfies all the dreams of a teenage boy who loved the TV series, but too cartoony and silly to be taken seriously by anyone else. I don't really know if there can be a seriously good film about talking, pizza-loving turtles, but this isn't it.

It's probably the best of all of the Turtles movies. But, still not all that great.

As a young boy growing up the early 90s, I sought guidance to the mysteries of life, liberty, and the pursuit of pizza, and by God, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michaelangelo were there to aid me through it all. See, there are a great many reasons to despise this film: campy effects, a "not-so-strict" adaptation of the cartoon, Corey Feldman; but the real reason to LOVE this movie is that it got kids like me pretending we were Ninja-fighters besting off the Foot Clan, learning the value of honesty, integrity, bravery, and yes, a little tomfoolery never hurt either. Give it a chance again, we've all seen it, now just pop it in again and start doing your pretend Ninja moves and rescue Ms. O'Neil through a wild wide of Mutant Shredder madness!

Best of the Turtles

The first turtles movie is the best of the three but that hardly makes it anything special. This one is okay, I like the characters and their interactions in this movie and it does have a somewhat interesting plot, but it has some flaws otherwise than that. The look and sound of the movie is completely dated to later 80's early 90's look and sound. The look of the turtles themselves are fine but the movie has a slightly murky look that is not really needed. The flaw that harms the movie the most are the fight scenes, they are okay when being comical but when serious fighting occurs problems arise. None of the fighting seems real with a lack of intensity or anything else to make it interesting it is more of people randomly jumping out and saying random lines. Is this movie bad really no th...
