9.6/10.The first Turtles movie and it doesn't disappoint.If anything it exceeds all expectations.I loved it as a kid, the turtles looked real to me.I only wondered what Shredder's plot was beyond stealing stuff.But I digress as that's secondary to the movie itself.The acting's great mainly on Judith Hoag and Elias Koteas' parts.They handle the idea of being friends/allies to ninja turtles well without batting an eye.The Shredder's just as impressive and scary as his counterparts in the comic books and games.If you're a fan of the turtles and haven't watched this one yet then you should.I would honestly say this one got me interested in the superhero genre, it lead me to Spider-Man.So obviously I still hold TMNT very dear.


To this day, this is the best film adaptation of the comics/1987 cartoon series. The costumes look great and the film takes itself seriously enough without sacrificing any fun.

Revealing mistake: As Michelangelo is waiting for the pizza guy, Donatelo cames through the sewer on a skateboard. A view of his feet is shown and his hands swipe across the screen. One of the times they come through his hand is not that of a turtle, but a human hand. (00:09:20)

Casey Jones: This is great. First it was The Farm That Time Forgot and now this. Why don't I ever fall in with people who own condos? Probably hard to get good maid service in a sewer. Maybe you guys should try Roto Rooter, huh?

Answer: Most likely to kill Shredder and make sure that there would be no way to come back but, as seen in the sequel, Shredder does return.
