Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In one way, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a triumph for producer Michael Bay in that it is equally as godawful as his Transformers: Age of Extinction and a hit nonetheless."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's pretty much business as usual: one personality trait per turtle (with the most screen time for party-dude Michelangelo), lots of wisecracks, plenty of thin-crust product placement (Pizza Hut this time around), and even a last-minute cowabunga."
‑ Bruce Ingram, Chicago Sun-Times
"Cowabunga? Cowabuggeroff!"
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"Tries, and fails, to meld grit and froth. Still, at key moments it does possess a perverse sort of brio."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"An entertaining smooth ride."
‑ Alan Jones, Radio Times
"It's essentially a Transformers movie - a Michael Bay production complete with mass destruction, urban panic, white-hot lighting, inane quips, product placement, explosions and, well, Megan Fox."
‑ Christy Lemire, ChristyLemire.com
"Turtles fans might have been looking for their own Avengers. They get Alvin and the Chipmunks on performance enhancers and mass-market pizza instead. In Hollywood, history repeats first as farce, then as marketing."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Those poor old Teenage Ninja Turtles should have been left tin hibernation."
‑ Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"25 years after the first Ninja Turtles' movie, the return of the reptilian heroes in a half-shell is surprisingly enjoyable."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"It'd be easier to give TMNT a pass if it was aiming purely for goofy fun, but it keeps taking itself so damn seriously."
‑ Tony Stamp, Flicks.co.nz
"I had to draw on my own ninja training and reflect intensively on the transitory nature of all phenomena, just to fend off the profound yearning for death."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles doesn't so much provide brainless enjoyment as it pummels the viewer into submission. "Shell-shocked" is a reasonable description of the experience."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"An exercise in product-placement so blatant it makes the last Transformer outing seem subtle by comparison."
‑ George Byrne, Irish Independent
"This iteration of pop culture's most idiotic quartet has the IQ of a cheese pizza but it's not a total cowabungle."
‑ Ali Gray, Film4
"While this special-effects laden action fest may not tick any highbrow cultural boxes it is a deliciously daft bit of entertainment - frenetic and full of fun."
‑ Mark Adams, Daily Mirror [UK]
