Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Audience Reviews

Smartorhypo Highly Overrated But Still Good
Taraparain Tells a fascinating and unsettling true story, and does so well, without pretending to have all the answers.
Hadrina The movie's neither hopeful in contrived ways, nor hopeless in different contrived ways. Somehow it manages to be wonderful
Brenda The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
reddragonhero17 I briefly fell in love with this show when it was around in my time of the late 80's and early 90's. Unfortunately, now that I'm an adult, I'm not too thrilled with what I see of it now. The storyline is practically nonexistent, the action is mindless (not to mention a mockery of true ninjistsu principles), the dialogue is juvenile, and the imagination is deliberately bankrupt. I didn't like how the turtles did some questionable behavior, and get rewarded for it by living on a diet of junk food, which is not only unutritious, but reveals one's own character as well in a negative way. Speaking of which I initially thought the turtles' lifestyle was the coolest thing since sliced bread, but now that I'm older I realize it's equivalent to living a near purposeless life of eating junk food, loafing around, not helping the world's problems, and engaging in fights for the thrill of it. In true ninjitsu, you respect your opponent, the turtles don't, they humiliate their opponents. While there is a small charm about the turtles that even I can't resist with their (small) personalities, I can't really consider these turtles to be genuine role models. The reason I gave the first live action movie a positive review was because the good message wasn't overshadowed by mindless action. The next animated series after this one did a far better job.
keithjeannesimmons *Possible Spoilers*With this being the first title to assign the colors you can really begin to see the love and care that the people put in to each and every individual character, from Micky and Donnie to Shredder and Splinter. I also truly loved the family friendly look upon the story that this series shows instead of the anger and violence that the comics always showed (Not that the comics weren't exceptional, it's just nice to see a friendly look on such a seemingly silly plot and story), With the Turtles love of pizza and the infinite wisdom that splinter always held for his students. I also loved the villains in this series like Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady. Not only these, it was also always fun to see Krang come on and watch the turtles fight to knock him down. It was also fun to watch the turtles struggle to keep themselves hidden away from the real world and the interactions they always had with April O'Neil. The strength of this show can also be seen by the amount of times it was recreated and re-imagined, but never topped. Even though this show took an extreme amount of criticism for the "violence" it showed and the weapons that the turtles carried. Aside from all of the great characters I also always enjoyed all of the voice actors and animation that was so well thought out and portrayed (with the exception of a view lazy moments in animation or the actors voicing the wrong turtles from time to time). Through out the series you will get to really see the group grow together as a whole and train to become some of the greatest ninjas the world has seen. All in all this is one of the greatest moments in 80's animation. Plus, it also has a really catchy intro song, gets stuck in your head easily every time. I give it a 9/10 (because of the few mistakes that the series made over time.)
Lee Eisenberg Not so much when you're older. Leonardo was always my favorite since his name sounded like mine and he wore my favorite color. Of course at that age I didn't know about the famous painters. In fact, while I was in elementary school, there was once a substitute teacher with a last name like Donnell, and she had to tell us "It's not Donald Duck, it's not Donatello." Nowadays it seems as though the most realistic character was April's misanthropic boss.And now there's a new movie, produced by that master of big obnoxious Hollywood garbage Michael Bay (so we know that it's going to suck more than a vacuum cleaner). The point is that I found "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cool when I was young but I have no interest in it now that I've seen movies by Otto Preminger and Ken Loach.
moldwarrior In my youth I was looking through a pile of old VHS tapes and I saw the TMNT logo. Intrigued I put it in and I was immediately a fan. I watched every episode. Bought countless toys and even played the video games. I can't help but love the series and I still love to watch it. I have owned the first and second season for about 3 years and haven't stopped watching the cartoon.Despite this I dislike the middle set of seasons due to the overly comedic and less than creative story. If you want to good set of episodes get seasons 1,2,3,8,9. They may not be connected but they are the best story wise.
